Exterior does not reflect interior, rooms need renovation. Rooms have a stuffy smell. Television not clear at all. Prices too high for quality of services offered. However hotel personnel are very polite and welcoming.

They're sending ghost transactions one year later. If you're vegetarian the food is a disaster. Staff is nothing to write home about and the place doesn't have a great atmosphere. But then again, it may still be one of the better options in Douala.

I have stayed at this hotel twice when visiting Douala. My first stay was in 2004 and they told me they regret the pool is not yet ready for use. On booking again in 2014, they also apologised that the pool was not ready for use. This hotel has the feel of an independent that wants to be an international... More

Welcoming staff, nicely decorated, very clean room, excellent air-conditioning, both anglophone and francophone TV, nice food and secure. No complaints. This is a very pleasant hotel. Price CFA 40,000 per night. I commend it unreservedly.

I find that this hotel compared to all the others in Douala is the Best!! The Security, Cleanliness, Hospitality, Comfort and Price. I traveled around the world and would rate this hotel on a standard of a four star for Douala. I went to all the other hotels around in the area, and of course I inspected the rooms before... More

Best to avoid this hotel unless you like prostitutes knocking on your door in the middle of the night, malfunctioning air conditioning, staff that refuse to cancel reservations when you want to leave. No question that there are better choices in Douala if you are looking for a hotel that approaches European or North American standards. You'll have to pay... More

“TYhe penthouse suite is worth paying for as it is large and you can easily entertain guests in the lounge which has great views of the Boulevard”
