Reviewed 8 September 2014

Stayed in early September 2014. The receptionist was nice, adorable and she was very helpful. However,my room was in a really bad state: stinking toilet, not enough towels, AC didn't work and bedsheets didn't seem to be very clean.

Reception personnel have obviously not received any training for that position. Rooms are average, most are now in need of some refurbishment. Bed sheets and pillow cases were of a dubious color in some rooms I visited before choosing a room.

We stayed 2 nights about 10 days apart. The rooms feature African bed (plywood with a mattress), clean bathroom, functional shower, sink & toilet, a tv and window to the streets of Douala. The desk staff were friendly, spoke English well, and were very helpful. The hotel has a very clean and tasty restaurant with bar (for alcohol). They serve...
