« It was too good but has still room to be improvised »

No Gym!! Thats a big missing part in the hotel Food should have more asian / continental taste as well because normally you will have more asian guests

I had a positive experience while staying there

Anonymous Business - 07/07/2017 AccorHotels review

I have mild allergies that never manifest unless in extreme conditions. Your hotel was one of them. Because of the filthy rooms, dusty, mouldy and decaying carpet, after few hours in the room, I had a crisis and I could not breath anymore. I asked to change the room, and the personnel was not helpful, I had to wait in the bar for more than half a day to be given a more decent room. We also were asked to move hotels because of a scheduled renovation. Information that was not communicated at the time of the booking. To make things worse, the personnel had some superfluous requirements, such us requiring to vacate the rooms at 8:30 AM and not providing any help with the luggage. Having to checking out and in again in Ibis. The rooms in Novotel cost twice the price of those in Ibis. No apology, compensation or helpful friendly service was witnessed during the process. Novotel is in noway a 4 star hotel and my stay there was the worst I have ever experienced.

« Beautiful hotel but facilities run down »

Very relaxing but need a complete over haul of the facility, bedding to leaking pipe, dirty carpets old TV monitors and so forth. It has beautiful terrace facing the swimming pool and garden.

Very cosy room and very helpful staff

Anonymous Business - 01/05/2017 AccorHotels review

Food is very expensive and quality is truly disappointing. I was food poisoned and had to be hospitalized. When I reported the event to the front desk and to the chef, I received no empathy and no relief. Due to the food poisoning I could not check out and travel. I had to stay an extra night and was charged a much higher rate...

Hallways have not been vacuumed for a long time. Carpets need to be changed.

Anonymous Business - 07/04/2017 AccorHotels review

Experience was ok ! The staff at the restaurant were very pleasant and always making sure that clients were satisfied. Room cleaned . Only incident was money stolen in my briefcase by security agent at check out .

Anonymous Solo - 02/04/2017 AccorHotels review

The experience was good, except some small items to think about: - the TV screen is small for 4 stars hotel - the TV channels are not stable

Anonymous Business - 24/03/2017 AccorHotels review

I suffered a severe food intoxication after eating at the hotel's restaurant and had to stay half a day at a local clinic to be rehydrated and treated with antibiotics. I spoke about it to the Chef of the hotel but he did not seem empathetic nor did he offer to erase the charge from my bill. As a result of my illness I could not depart as planned and had to stay an extra day in Cotonou, which was charged to me at a much higher premium compared to what I booked online. When I asked the front desk to keep the online rate, I received a "what are you talking about? look... On top of that, the hallways are not properly ventilated and the rooms are not very clean.

Everything was fine except the internet which was very unstable. In addition, it was not possible to use the WIFI to do What's App which is a BIG problem

Anonymous Friends - 22/02/2017 AccorHotels review

Staff were never overly friendly. Just seemed very bleh and disinterested most of the time Rooms are very old and dated... definitely need a lot of upgrading to the facilities. Towels were skimpy and not really what you expect for a Novotel Hotel needs lots of work to make it look appropriate for a Novotel

Anonymous Business - 20/02/2017 AccorHotels review

Safe and calm , thank you.

It looks that the quality of Novotel Orisha is going down compared to when it opened some 9 years ago. The equipment is getting worn out and the efficiency and attitude of the staff is deteriorating. With the expected arrival of Ramada and Golden Tulip nearby, I am quite concerned if Novotel Cotonou might follow the same fate its branch in Conakry and Accra.

Anonymous Business - 13/02/2017 AccorHotels review

I came min twice a year in your hotel for 3-5 days. Every time it is the same story, your employee are very slow and the room they provide is not satisfactory, so you have to complain and they provide you a correct room. It seems they are not aware about fast check in and not willing to provide any services to the customers. Every years it becomes worst and worst, without any feedback on the Novotel management it is the last time I come in Novotel Orisha.

« Not at the level »

Overall stay was very disappointing, I have been several times to this hotel and it's getting worst and worst. The whole hotel is suffering from the lack of renovations for years and absolutely 0 work has been done. At least before the employees were friendly. This will be my last stay as there has been several new hotels in town.
