Hotel Koulouba Ouagadougou Reviews
nice but somewhat overpriced Apr 28, 2010
As the Pavillon Vert was closed for repairs, we had to look for another hotel. Hotel Koulouba is not far from the airport, and a bit closer to the centre of Ouaga than the Pavillon Vert.
The cheapest room here is costs quite a bit more than at the Pavillon Vert or Hotel Delwende, but it does come with both a ventilator and airco (so you can choose) and your own bathroom. It also has some useless extras, such as a small TV and hot water (expecially useless when it's so hot outside that even the water coming from the cold tap is too warm). And a small fridge, which I was happy about.
There was no mosquito net in our room, nor the possibility to hang your own. There were no mosquitos either, as there was a mosquito screen in the window, but a net just would have made me feel safer. If lizards can get into the lobby, surely mosquitos can get in through the door.
It's on a busy street, so expect constant noise. You can sit in the lobby and watch TV, but there's nowhere to sit outside. There's a patisserie nextdoor, but it was closed.
