All of the staff at Hilton Yaoundé were extremely welcoming. For the four nights that I was there - I truly felt welcomed by the hostess at the breakfast buffet who greeted me by name every morning with a genuine smile. The other person who was memorable was the "Miss Breakfast", who would also greet you with freshly made juice....

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 30 October 2016

As this is the main luxury hotel of Yaounde, and, according to reviews on Tripadvisor and other sources, close to the only one, one can expect complacency and distances apart from perfection. A visiting head of State chose this hotel, putting all staff on red alert. However, the less famous and less powerful customers were handled in a good way,...

The rooms are clean and tidy, the buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner is great and the gym facilities are adequate. The real gem is the staff......they are extremely friendly, attentive and polite! Best hotel I've visited in this region of Africa! Definitely stay again!!!

As far as I can tell, this is the best hotel in Yaounde. Service is good. Security is good. Rooms (and bathrooms) are good, and up to American standards. Restaurant is good, if not a little too pricey. Fitness center is adequate, but clean. My major two complaints are 1) the air conditioning and, 2) the prices. The bedrooms were...

We spent 4 nights at this lovely hotel. The rooms were very nice and spacious and the restaurants were delicious. The executive lounge is also one of the best I've visited. There's also a casino located on premise. The security was very thorough, so we felt safe at all times. There's an atrium bar that has an outside wrap around...

Of course Hilton is also in Yaoundé a very good hotel. Compared with other Hilton over the word it is not a real Hilton. But compared with the Cameroonian standard it is a very good hotel. But still I do not think got value for money. The rate is very high compared with other goods hotels in Yaoundé city center.

This hotel is located in a secure part of town. The breakfast buffet has a great variety of items but is very expensive. You can find good restaurants and a grocery store nearby. One of the issues when we arrived was that our rooms were not ready. We had to wait for 3 hours to get our keys. Check in...

The hotel is very close to main government agencies and seems to be the only option for foreign business travelers. The property is decent but shows age. Staff is generally friendly. Breakfast in the lobby has adequate variety. Room service is of good quality and big portion, but a bit pricy. The executive lounge at 8th floor provides breakfast, tea...

Very good location, very helpful staff, especially in executive lounge. Noise was a problem with my corner executive room facing road/wind sound being audible/leaving corridor door thus allowing noise to the inside of the hotel.

Hilton has no competition in Yaounde! Perhaps this has made them complacent. Upon arrival, I was shocked when I had to open my suitcase for a physical inspection of my baggage. This is an experience I had long time back before scanners became common at hotels. I found this aspect of having to open my baggage very intrusive, where technology...
