romantic residence

The residence has 3 huts, big enough for couples and 2 rooms inside the main house.

I stayed there for 4 months, but shorter stays are equally possible.

Price is 6000 CFA / night (9€). For longer stays a lower price is made.

It is also possible to get daily breakfast ( 1000 CFA - 1,5 € ) or main dish ( 1500 CFA - 2,30 € ) if desired; and to hire a taxi + driver.

tranquile, residential neighbourhood, close to the Niger river bank.

Taxi and bus station at 5-10min walk, internet cafe at 5 min walk.

The Sleeping Camel: Nice and cheap place to stay

Rooms from 17000 CFA, dorm 4000 CFA, safe parking, free Wifi and decent food.

Nice place to meet other travelers and spend some time while waiting for your visas.

Auberge Danaya: Avoid Auberge Danaya

Avoid this place at all cost. Apart from location there is no reason to stay there. It is dirty, not well kept, overpriced, badly managed a staff members are so pushy. They will follow you like sharks trying to sell their tour/guide service and will turn agressive if you politly refuse any of them. So, to avoid all this together stay somewhere else!

Only the location

Best budget: Mission Catholique

I stayed here just one night, on the way to Djenne. I stayed in a dormitory of 6 beds, simple but clean. There is fan and mosquito net. No blankets though, bring your sleeping bag.
6 euros for a bed in dormitory.
Mission Catholique is what its name says, a hostel made for religious visitors at the beginning but now open to the public. It's a safe place and is well located. They give you a key, so you can come in and out any time.

It's probably the best budget option for Bamako.

Le Djenne: La maison des hotes

Simply rooms, with a bathroom in. Are dark room, but clean and nice decorated (each room is different from the others). Rooms equipped with tv
Is a small hotel, divided in 2 floors, and located in a quiet quartier (hippodrome). the hotel is like a small museum of the malian culture, because in the building represents each part of the country.
At the end of the central corridor there is a small open-room with some sofas...perfect to night's conversations.
Le Djenne is run by the former outspoken minister of Culture and Tourism.

Hotel Plaza: Hotel Plaza

Very good hotel in the area of Niarela, easy access and central.
Good service, mainly for business and short stays.
There are no real tourist facilities but it is the best point if you want to stay some days in Bamako before going to the rest of the country.

Four storey building, it offers a good view on the town.
The rooms are very clean, and the bathrooms offer a good comfort for Bamako: hot and cool water at any time, clean towels, etc. which is not common in Bamako, even in the very new hotels.
Qualified and international staff will great you in English.
The restaurant on the top floor offers good international, Malian and Lebanese dishes at reasonnable prices, and you will enjoy the view on Bamako.
