Hotel Napoléon Lagune Lome Reviews
Good hotel near the airport Apr 05, 2011
Hotel Napoléon Lagune is located on the edge of the Bé lagoon, 10 minutes from the airport and a couple of kilometres northeast of the centre. With a tropical garden and a swimming pool it looked like a small oasis, but as so many places we have stayed in West Africa, the public area is very nice, but when you get to the room it is a different story.
Our room was nice looking with white walls, tiled floor and dark furniture. It had two single beds, a wardrobe with an electronic safe and a desk. The AC was of the old type and did not manage to cool the room. If you stay here make sure to get a room away from the generator and those facing the water near the generator if you like a good rest. Between the hotel and the lagoon there are a lot of bars with loud music. Outside you can hear the noise from the planes, but inside no aircraft noise.
The tiled bathroom was nice looking, but the door did not close and the toilet did not flush. In the evening I had a shower, the water pressure was lousy and when I was all covered in soap, the water ran out. Was I furious? You bet!
The restaurant was nice and airy, located under a roof by the pool. In the evenings it was very lively. The menu was okay with mains from €10-15. If you wanted sauce with your main dish it was an extra €2. I had the vegetable soup, which was nice, but the cheese panini was very dry.
If they get their act together and make everything work in the rooms, this could be a very lovely place.
Room rates are:
CAF 22.800 single (€35)
CAF 24.800 double (€38)
