"Be prepared to relocate" Laico El Farouk Hotel Tip by kendo101

Laico El Farouk Hotel, Bamako: 25 reviews and 0 photos

I would NOT recommend this hotel.

have stayed at Kempinski Hotels throughout the world, but this hotel is far below normal Kempinski standards.

the rooms smelt of cigarette smoke, the service in the resturants was very poor and we were asked to leave the hotel when a trade delegation arrived. we had planned our trip and made reservations 6 months in advance and had to pick up and relocate to the Sofitel without warning.

very displeased with the hotel. in the future, will stay at the Sofitel in Bamako. enjoyed the Sofitel in every regard. nicer grounds, better staff and nicer rooms.
