The photos of the facade don't lie. This hotel is surviving thanks to expats and UN staff members. It OK for short duration stay. I was here for about a week with a room on the 10th floor. It's quite the exercise as the elevator has the tendency to be very slow. Great view of the Obangui River and the...

Note: I have never stayed overnight here, but am reviewing the restaurant/bar. This is my favorite place to go in Bangui. I get up kind of late on a Sunday morning, and I get a ride to the Oubangui by myself cradling a book and a journal. I spend a couple dollars on coffees for the next few hours and...

Take a concrete monstrosity with 1980s technology and decor, stick it in the jungle and let it rot for 30 years: Voila, you get the sorry, derelict, dilapidated Oubangui. The elevator is highly erratic and often out of order. I had to change rooms twice because the A/C did not work. One died overnight, another did not cool. When I...

I spent 4 or 5 nights here in Mid July 2014 then I moved to Levys Hotel. Crowded hotel that time and was at 5th floor. For 2 mornings I have to go without bath, yes..no water. Lucky I took one in the evening so I must not be smelling bad and thanks to vanilla Body Shop :) The view...

You have to remember that Central Africa is still going through civil unrest, curfews, foreign military on the streets and the country in desperate need of aid. The Oubangui was once a respectable place to stay and going by what there is now, even if it is faded and not always working, it still is one of highlights of Bangui....

What can I say? the rooms are not super clean, the elevator has its own personality (it stops wherever it wants), the wifi only really works at the reception, food is expensive and not very good. The water could be cleaner. In spite of all this, I prefer to stay here as an aid worker than in the Ledger which...

First of all, let me say that obviously the Oubangui Hotel (not "Bangui Hotel" as listed in Trip Advisor, is nowhere near the quality of the five-star Ledger Hotel in Bangui. It is by any definition run-down and in need of serious upgrades. But given the difficult situation in Bangui as I'm writing this review (mid-2014), the hotel is not...

Okay, first of all if you are travelling to Central African Republic you must understand that there's an ongoing conflict, violence and a lot of people have been affected/displaced. Conflict affects development and creates political instability making it difficult for people to live or businesses to thrive. Given that context, this hotel is a great hotel. Of course the elevator...
