I arrived after a 24 hour bus ride and decided it would be well worth it to spend a little more than I usually would for some luxury. I was sad that the pool I had so looked forward to was drained and looked like it had been for some time. The room was dreary with only one small window and a scary ancient AC. I was unable to write or read as the electricity was only turned on after 6 PM and there was very little light from the window. Outside to read/write at sundown and back for a shower. The water was nice and hot and I figured out that to flush the leaking toilet I had to turn it on underneith. I went to bed-CLUNK, box springs as a matress! Exhushted I slept. In the AM I was told that breakfast was not included as I had been told and was taken to a streetside cafe. This is Mali afterall, so it really could be anybody's word and I really didn't care as sitting by the street was the most pleasant bit of my stay. I have stayed at many many places with far fewer amenities but they were much cheaper and had more charm than this overpriced deserted "conference center."
Bleak at best
There are not a lot of places where you can stay in Sikasso. In Mali, when you are not in Bamako, you are really in the bush.
Hotel Zanga is the only place I found with some European standards.
This is a hotel for business or for people on their way between Bamako and Burkina Faso.
Hotel is good for one night or two, with basic accomodation: airconditionning, TV sat, clean bathroom with a lovely view on the garden and the swimming pool.
The restaurant outside provides simple but good food.
The only one in the area
