Hotel Du Lac - Cotonou - Building

8,6 Excellent (239 reviews)
R1 310+
9,6 Excellent
Pros: Restaurant, clean rooms, always friendly stuff
8,3 Excellent
Pros: Clean environment
Cons: Why charge for breakfast?
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Everything
7,0 Good
Pros: Good hotel, fairly central to downtown Cotonou, not too far from airport.
Cons: No hours are posted for the swimming pool, which to me means that a client can swim any time day or night. Yet when I asked for a towel at 18:30 I was rudely refused and told to get one from my room. That is unacceptable behavior from staff in a hotel that prides itself on good client service. At the very least the hotel should leave a stack of towels available at all times and let clients place the used ones in a bin. Please look into this before my next stay in a month or so. Thank you. Also surprised by poor service at the restaurant. The waiter was clearly not interested in us and made us wait a long time for our drinks and then brought our appetizer a half hour later at the same time as the rest of the meal. Not good enough for a first class hotel. His name was Christian.
9,0 Excellent
Pros: The staff was very nice and helpful. Food was good. Rooms were clean and cleaned daily. For me the location was excellent for the things I'd planned to do. My room had a beautiful view of the lagoon, ocean and swimming pool. Bed was very comfortable! Even had some English speaking shows on TV!
Cons: The air conditioner worked, but would not go as low as I wanted it to. Manager sent me an email reply that he did not follow through on.

Pros: Location is key
Cons: The lady (host) was absolutely terrible, we got to the house about 4pm and there was no one to attend to us or check us in but the security who ushered us to the apartment. There was no power in the apartment and the security man walked away leaving us in the hot humid apartment saying “madam has to pay for the power” After a couple of minutes the lady called and said there will not be power until we paid (paid who? The security?) and she won’t be able to give a receipt because she wasn’t in town- mind you my flight was at 4am the following morning) By this time, I and my wife were already sweating profusely from the heat in the apartment and when I said we were leaving, she asked if we connected to the Internet!!! And hung up on us. I hope she sees this as I am disgusted at such behavior from a host.

10,0 Excellent
Pros: The moment I checked in, I was greeted by this very calm and peaceful environment. My room was clean and spacious. It was cool and fresh all the while. The staff were accommodating and cordial too. Their fried fish and rice is a meal any guest should try out.
Cons: I stayed only for four nights, and in those four nights, there was nothing I did not like in particular. Oh, there is something. I think they changed the cleaning staff at some point. The one who took over from the first one did not do a thorough cleaning on the bathroom. She left water on the floor, and some splashed on the toilet seat. Aside from that, all was well.
8,0 Excellent
Cons: Mosquitoes prevented me from staying outside my room for the night.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Everything...but especially the staff.
Cons: Breakfast.
8,3 Excellent
Pros: For the money asked it was great. The facilities and rooms need a little cosmetic improvement. You can tell that it is a little run-down but again this is 1/4 of the price of a top hotel and the pool area makes it feel like a resort area. The staff was incredible and willing to help in any way we could. We came with lots of kids and they were willing to up an extra bed in our room. The rooms are big and face the pool. They let us stay in the room way past our checkout time with no issues. It was really good for the money that I paid.
Cons: The need to fix some things. Just little details. Because all the rooms are not rented all the time they need to be cleaned more often even if people have not stayed there. They need to fix some of the mosquito nets in the bathrooms. Make sure the fridge is clean. However when I found something that was not to my liking - I just asked and they jumped right to fixing it.
