Hotel Kara Reviews
Best option in Kara Apr 17, 2011
Hotel Kara is located in Kara town and is the towns only top-end hotel. It has seen better days though. They have the only lift outside Lomé and the only swimming pool north of Kpalimé.
The pool was very nice. If you are not a guest of the hotel you can use the pool for CAF 1000 (CAF 500 for children).
The entrance, bar and pool looks much nicer than the rooms, which looks a bit tired. But the rooms do have what you need, a bed (very firm), a desk, AC and TV.
The bathroom was small, but had a shower with good water pressure and plenty of hot water. Both the room and the bathroom were very clean.
All the staff was nice, friendly and very nice. Check in was very efficient. We did laundry, which cost CAF 500 pr piece (€ 0,75). We left it at the reception, but it seemed like someone outside the hotel did it. It was very well done and very efficient. 3 hours after we dropped it off, it was back, clean and dry.
We had dinner in the hotel restaurant. With the neon lights it lacked atmosphere. We laughed at the AC. It was set to cool down the room to 30 C/. Where most of us come from the temperature rarely reach 30 C. The staff was polite and courteous, but lacked spontaneity and friendlyness. It is obvious that they have had very stricked training. Despite the lack of atmosphre we had a very nice dinner.
Breakfast was served in the same restaurant and was very nice. In addition to the usual rolls, butter and jam, we also got croissants, fresh fruit and omelet. If you don´t have the meals included in your room rate, breakfast is CAF 3000 (€4,5) and dinner CAF 6000 (€9).
Hotel Kara is a nice hotel and I would enjoy staying there again.

Single CAF 18.500, Double CAF 21.500 (2+3 floor)
Single CAF 25.000, Doulbe CAF 28.500 (1. floor)
A Singel CAF 25.000, Double CAF 28.500
