Auberge La Rose des Sables Ouagadougou Reviews
not bad, but you can find better in Ouaga May 07, 2010
The Rose des Sables is a friendly little hotel, but you can do better (see my reviews of the Pavillon Vert and Hotel Delwende) for the same price. It's very basic, and quite a way from the centre.
We got a room with a ventilator, the cheapest one they had. There was no mosquito net, nor anywhere to attach your own. And that's really the most important feature a hotel in Africa should have, I think. The bathroom was en-suite but didn't smell very nice, though it wasn't horrible either. But definitely not "very clean" as my Rough Guide claims.
The staff was nice. You can sit and watch TV in the lobby, and there's a small garden with tables in the back. There's also a restaurant next door, but we didn't check it out.
Apparantly this place comes highly recommended in a reputed French guidebook, so it's quite popular with French backpackers.
