Pleasing and relaxing for business and leisurePosted Jul 15, 2013
Pros: Room comfort and cleanliness
Cons: facilities for children
Location: Quiet yet only 12-15 mins from airport, good roads mean around 30 mins to town - Plateau area
I stayed one week with my 8 year old son and know this hotel very well from its earlier incarnations. I worked in town (30 mins, taxi 3,000 cfa, sometimes less after hard negotiation) while my son visited old school friends. We had no problems at all at the King Fahd. Free pick-up from airport and return. The staff were very friendly, efficient, helpful and did everything to make our stay pleasant. We stayed in an executive room which was spacious well equipped, clean and comfortable. TV needs children's channels! Room service v good; breakfast 14,000 per adult but very satisfactory. Pool area good and well looked after. Clearly the standard of the hotel has declined a bit from when it was Meridien - much furniture has gone, the children's play area was dirty and unkempt but apart from that, we enjoyed our stay very much. Competition and pressure on service will increase when the Sheraton opens in January just up the road but we will return to the King Fahd.

Convenient to the airportPosted Apr 20, 2013 on Hotels.com
Just minutes from the airport and close to the U.S. embassy, this hotel is close to many of the business offices you might be visiting. The room was a little worn, but clean and comfortable.

Very good overall experiencePosted Feb 24, 2013 on Hotels.com
Credit card payment/clearance problems caused by bad service provider were only complaint i can think of after 6 nights. When denied credit I checked in own end and they dident see any contact from hotel. ATM automat at hotel solved problem for me. Very nice service, upgrade to super suite room for low extra amount, late checkout at 20:00 for very reasonable amout, nice pool. Ocean not possible to swim due to rocks.

ok for west africaPosted Jan 20, 2013
Pros: Pool and location
for a 5 star hotel, it was disappointing. For West Africa, it was OK
Where do they get the Stars?Posted Nov 22, 2012 on Hotels.com
Stayed here for a conference. The hotel's A/C didn't work and the water went out twice. The internet was also out the entire time....both Wifi and cable. The desk was helpless, and they actually charged at the "Business Center" to print my boarding pass. They also tried to charge me for mini-bar items that were not used. Regardless of location, this place is too big for its staff to accommodate the size of the facility. It's also apparent that they make some profit off of big conferences, but the sheer size of the place makes it impossible for them to keep it up the rest of the time. Food at the restaurant was also very poor. Hotels.com should start to filter what hotels they offer for fear of hurting their own reputation. Stay at one of the smaller hotels that are in the area.
