Many hotels in nWest africa have little glitches: water not coming, power gone, sockets not transferring power. In this hotel, all is however working well. Staff are fairly efficient. The bar is nice, the restaurant has ok food, although it is on the pricey side Heavy security presence, which should ensure the safety.

Dear Guest, Thank you for the great review of our hotel! We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again very soon. Sincerely,

I've stayed at the Grand Hotel on several occasions. The rooms and the service correspond to a three-star hotel, do not expect more. If you want more go to Salam, Onomo or Radisson. But keep in mind the security. The luxury hotels were targeted by the terrorist. Also, I may admit that the hotel's security in Bamako has been increased...

Safe, clean, large rooms, friendly service, good availability of services, pay safely with credit card and the restaurant has recently been improved with a new chef. The internet connection is stable but could be faster.

Positives: The security was noticed where they search everyone who wants to go in professional like the airport custom search. The price after the company gave a good deal and went almost 50% off. They provided a private taxi for us and stayed with us and was reasonable price. Rooms are large and good view to the swimming pool. All...

This hotel has the nastiest food I've ever come across in all my travels. It's just plain, simple nasty! I couldn't believe it! I stayed here for 3 days and I was in a hurry to leave by the end of the first day. The hotel is not even worth a half star. Dirty mosquito nets hang over the beds....

The size of the rooms are really big and the place is very clean. My disappointment was the breakfast - it is obscenely expensive! £10 for a cup of tea and a croissant! In the end I went to the supermarket and brought nuts and dried fruit instead. Dinner is cheaper but not that great so best to eat elsewhere...

We held a conference here for 55 people. The meeting room was large enough, and there was an area outside the conference room with a serving bar and sink where we could prepare our coffee breaks. Bathrooms clean, though we had to remind them about TP. My room was humongous and very comfortable, with a sitting area with TV, and...

The rooms were large, clean, comfortable. Service was inconsistent. AC worked well. Swimming pool was good sized and clean. The carpets in hallways and lobby were dirty and worn. The main dishes were good. The salads were very small. The sandwiches were not good. Wifi worked from the rooms, could even Skype.

Certainly not a four star hotel as stated in its website but good enough to meet average needs. With my colleagues, we have spent four nights, which were challenging at times with rooms, bathrooms, wifi and food quality. Staff is friendly some doing more than others. This hotel has some potential but more work is needed to meeting industry standards...

I spent 7 nights at the Azalai for business. The hotel was adequate in the basics, clean, air-conditioning worked, bed was comfortable and staff were friendly. Hot water proved to be a challenge if you wanted to shower at peak times, internet at times would cut in and out and the place is party central on weekends. I found the...

“Since I am not sure whether this place is also Azalai Grand or now has a separate name, it is quite important to figure that out upon booking. The main building is definitely more comfortable (but I assume also more expensive). If you are not planning to spend a lot of time in the room, go for the cheaper rooms and enjoy the services next door (restaurant etc).”
