There is only one 'HOTEL' in...
There is only one 'HOTEL' in Bamako. Lovely, I enjoyed my stay in Mali. The people are friendly and nice. The 'HOTEL' is one of the 2 buildings in the city that has more than 4 floors (the other is the Bank)
about 30 usd
Nice pool and the food is good. Gives great view of the Niger.
Nightfighters are all over you if you are a single male. If you do not whant them into your room, lock up after you enter 'cause they will follow you all the way into your room... ;-)

Bouctou Hotel (Timbuktu)
Timbuktu hasn't got a lot of hotels to choose, in spite of its legendary name amongst travellers. One of the best medium-range places is the Bouctou Hotel, in the limits of the desert. They have 2 buildings, well decorated tough simple including breakfast, and the staff is really friendly. They can organise trips with the touaregs and trips to the Niger river villages too.
About 20 euros for a room with fan.

Sleeping on top
A good option for sleeping in Mali (if it doesn't rain) is to sleep on the roof. Most hotels offer this possibility, which could be cooler than a room with fan. You can always use the common showers and WC downstairs.
Prices vary from 5 to 9 euros. A matress is sometimes supplied and your own sleeping bag is advisable. Put some mosquito lotion just in case.

hotels in Mali: Don't expect too much
Hotels in Mali tend to fall short of the standards generally expected in Europe and the US, excepting a few really top end hotels in Bamako. Standards of cleanliness and facilities vary - often according to the price you pay. Out of Bamako expect a lot less from your accommodation. In fact in many places there are no hotels as such, just campements and very basic places. This OK - Mali is in Africa. But it may take you by surprise if you are not expecting to backpack.
For Backpackers Mali is generally a good place. Out of Bamako you can usually find a roof to sleep on and somewhere to hang up your mosquito net.
Expect a warm welcome, apart from the big hotels which seem quite 'snooty'. Hotel pools in Bamako are generally of a good standard and kept clean. Outside Bamako they are rare.

Hotel L'Auberge, Segou: Perfect Oasis
When I first went to Mali I didn't know a soul. I got off the bus from Bamako and landed in Segou. It's the second biggest city in Mali but feels more like a small town. When I found the Auberge I was thrilled. Africa can create a lot of Mayhem, especially in Bamako, but in Segou and particularly at this hotel, I was given the chance to totally relax. The rooms were spacious and clean. There is a lovely garden/dining area and a pretty pool to swim in. It made all the difference. I felt totally revived. The hotel is well situated. Very close to the Niger river. The Monday market is just a few streets away. I LOVE this town and LOVE this hotel. Oh... and it's not expensive. I guess when I was there it was around $40. TOTALLY worth it.
