"Good Food, Nice Hotel, No English TV, No WIFI, Bathroom Issues"
The food, other than the breakfast is pretty good. The hotel is well maintained, except the elevator smelt funny. The bathroom however was so small (no bathtub at the level I picked) that you had to put your feet in the shower area when sitting on the toilet. Also, the shower area had no curtain/stall so when you showered there was water all over the floor. There was no drain in the floor so I'm assuming the cleaning staff must have mopped it up. Until they did, you had a pool of water in the room. No english channels other than CNN. Extremely poor wifi internet.

At the hotel La Vallée des Princes you find yourself in the middle of the heart of Douala, the economic capital and the …More
I like the personnel, they are very nice to client, however the public bathroom was not well taking care of, there were water splash everywhere on the floor you can place your feet/shoes in the water. The room service was great. no toilette paper in the bathroom. you have to ask to get one.Only one towel was given for three guests.
I stayed for just one night at Afrique Hotel, Douala and it is a very pleasant experience. I was picked up from the airport and also dropped off at 4am to catch an early morning flight. The room and facilities were neat and decent.The hotel staff were very friendly and accomodating.I will not hesistate to recommend the hotel to others.
The Ibis Hotel in Douala is an excellent no-frills hotel and I found it very comfortable. The shuttle service from the airport was free and they stuck by me during my delays. Check-in was good and the room is clean with central A/C.
The restaurant was okay but again it was no-frills.
On the departure date they allow a late check out at 19:00 hrs for a half day rate.
I would certainly recommend this hotel to fellow travellers who don't expect five star luxury. By Cameroon standards it is excellent.
