8.4.Very good.
  • 8.0.Very good

    Le Grad Calao was a nice little oasis in the middle of the hustle and bustle of a busy Ouagadougou street. As an American first time visitor to Burkina, I felt safe and secure on the property of the Grand Calao. The rate was reasonable and the grounds were well kept. My room was very no frills, but nice, neat and best of all - air conditioned. The owner of the property was very visible, so that was somewhat reassuring. The main gripes I had with the hotel, was that they could use some kind of citronella or bug repellent candles in their dining and lounging areas. Also, the toilet in my room was not thoroughly cleaned (underneath the lid), but I always carry disinfectant wipes, so I took care of that myself. Overall, my experience at Le Grand Calao was pleasant.

    In der Preiskategorie bisher das beste Hotel in dem ich in Burkina Faso war. Die drei anderen waren writ drunter. Das einzigste was mir gefehlt hat war ein Fön im Bad und ein kleiner Kühlschrank im Zimmer.

    ottimo hotel peccato il ristorante

    Gran bel Hotel, pulito silenzioso con personale molto cordiale. Unica pecca il ristorante, pochi piatti tempi lunghi (circa 1 ora) .

    Très bon rapport qualité/prix, à recommander

    Hôtel très sympathique dans un cadre Africain très agréable et reposant. Accueil chaleureux et personnalisé, personnel très serviable et attentif aux besoins des clients, même si c’est quelque fois un peu long. Chambres propres, bien climatisées avec une literie confortable. Pour le reste, c’est largement suffisant. C’est dommage que le restaurant ne propose pas de cuisine locale. Autre bémol, mais on ne peut pas tout avoir ; hôtel excentré et pas grand-chose autour. Hôtel à recommander, et j’y retournerai certainement lors de mon prochain voyage à Ouagadougou.
