Douala isn't the most stress free place in the world and this hotel provided a calm oasis against the frenetic day to day activity encountered in town. The staff were actually professional, polite and friendly which can sometimes be hard to find in the Cameroonian service industry. The rooms were clean, air conditioned and the bathrooms even had really soft... More

This hotel is a good choice in Douala. I was there on business and while the room was small it was clean and in good condition. The internet was very good. The restaurant was very good and very quick which is a great surprise because all hotels I have stayed at in Cameroon the wait time for your meal is... More

The hotel is average but not easy to find great hotel here in Douala. Rooms are correct with AC television. Bathroom is old fashion equipment but of working condition Breakfast if fine - no real coffee but the traditional "Nescafé" even from the machine ! Sad ! Had my diner outside so I can't tell you anything about it.

The Prince de Galles is quite ok, but nothing special. Rooms are ok, although quite noisy (you can clearly hear what's going on in the corridor and also in other rooms!). Breakfast is good and included in the room price. Internet works reasonably well. I had dinner once at the hotel which was ok. Staff is friendly! I think I... More

Aircon works well. Nice bed. No bugs if you close the bathroom window and invest in a squirt of insect murdering spray before retiring. This is Doula. Not the place one expects a Four Seasons, and this certainly isn't one, but you'll sleep well and the breakfast will hold you together until you get the hell outa town!

Rooms: bed was comfortable, showers were good pressure and hot. I was not impressed with the arrival to the room. On each day, the cleaner would open the window, so by night the room was hoarding with mosquitos. The water heater would leak which I reported on the first day but I don't think was attended too as it was... More

First, the good parts. The pick-up at the airport was impeccable, the driver was waiting outside the baggage claim with my name and we were quickly installed at the hotel. The restaurant was good. The rooms however are old. They need to change the bedding. Not the linens, which were clean, but rooms have this well-worn humid smell. My colleague,... More
