The Pullman in Douala could be a nice hotel. Unfortunately, it leaves to be desired. If you expect the standards of the Pullman chain, this is not what you will get. 1-Building is oooold.

The hotel has an excellent location and a very professional and friendly staff. They did their best to make the journey pleasant to me and my colleague, drafting a personalized program for him to discover the city. However, the hotel is old and desperately needs a refurbishment.

A pleasant stay but the hotel is old and in parts, tatty. Room was clean but small. Restaurant food was good and the fresh baked rolls were a nice touch.

I stayed at this hotel for two weeks a month, over a six month period and came to feel right at home. The grounds, bar area and "Le Madiba" restaurant is a big selling point for this hotel, as is the professionalism and helpfulness of the staff. Unfortunately the rooms and living areas are what gives this hotel an average...
