Hotel Mande, Bamako: 43 reviews and 1 photos

 
 

The hotel is alongside the River Niger, with a restaurant under patio built on the water.
It is in a very quiet and safe place, isolated inside the town, around the best residential area.
The hotel has a very nice and large swimming pool.
The restaurant is also very good and offers a large choices of different French or Malian dishes.
The old rooms inside the hotel are very good and present a good ratio price/quality, however, if you make reservation insist on not being in the new extension:
Rooms are very small, bathrooms are very dirty and you even not receive a soap and a towel.
Moreover, some of them are so far from the hotel that you need 15 minutes in the dark to reach your room. It looks more like a cheap local house.
No other activity than the pool.

Unique Qualities: The restaurant on top of the Niger with a view on the river and the other part of Bamako, a view on the fishermen estate.

The first time I was in the restaurant, it was raining season. In less than two minutes wind blew as a storm and everything was taken off, my glas, my plate, even my table, everything went to the river. Waiters quickly took us inside where they served us a new meal.
