If you need a place to stay that's clean and modern and safe-feeling, here you go. There are no bells or whistles, so if your stay includes a weekend and you'll want a pool, you'd have to venture elsewhere. But the breakfast is nice enough, the room is small but modern and quiet, and you have everything you need for...

Ladies and gentlemen .... If you like nice bedroom and clean bathroom, go to this hotel.. All the other hotels were not as clean and comfortable. Hotel du Lac was ranked number number 1 in Cotonou... When we went there it was a disaster so we rushed back to Ibis.. We stayed at Ibis for 14 nights and the staff...

I spent four days at the IBIS while visiting Cotonou for business. It was excellent. The rooms are comfortable, neatly kept, and - best of all - come with the excellent new bedding. Service is extremely friendly, and always ready to lend a hand. Crucially, security is strong and helpful. When a taxi driver tried to extort extra money from...

It might be me, but I could not help compare this with the Ibis in Abidjan. Staff need more training, here. On check in, the printer was not working. So I did not get a receipt. One week down, I still have not received it, despite the fact that I put down my Accor Membership info. No receipt, no points....

This is a decent place, period. The rooms are small and on the basic side, but they are clean and with a working (and quiet) aircon. The bathrooms are likewise small but very clean and functional. Breakfast is buffet-style and I found it very good; it includes cold cuts (two kinds of ham, cheese, good bread rolls). The hotel has...

The staff badly need to be trained in the BASICS at this hotel- from being shouted at by staff to being asked for money by staff- this hotel is a total JOKE. Do not stay here, unless you want a laugh!

The receptionists at this hotel are rude and unprofessional, I would not stay here if you can avoid it. They even shouted at me. Not the service or manner you expect when paying more than is justified for a budget hotel out of necessity as there are few options in Cotonou.
