Natitingou, Benin
Reviewed 4 December 2016

As the "best" hotel in Cotonou I was not disappointed by the room or the very luxurious breakfast the next morning. However, the shower overflowed and was never properly fixed. No-one knew anything about service and it was little like being in Alice in Wonderland, perhaps not a bad introduction to the rest of West Africa.

When you get such a friendly and efficient service it is hard not to overrate. I will try to be reasonable: La maison rouge is a four star guest house /hotel with three star accommodations (lets say two star for the bathrooms) and five star service. The hotel is made of three separate houses with small but beautiful gardens in...

I spent one night in this hotel. It is located in a secure estate along Blvd de CENSAD in a posh neighborhood in Cotonou. Not far away are the beach and large supermarket, Erevan. Rooms are very spacious; I booked a single room and the bed was HUGE. The bathroom/ shower was really cramped and that was the only less...

Stayed here 29th January 2016 and regretted not staying longer. Great location conveniently close to the airport which was a relief after a long flight. The room was very comfortable and well appointed and was nice and clean. Not at all run down in comparison to some of the other hotels in Cotonou . Everything worked as it should do....

Have been for a couple of days in Cotonou on business and added the week-end to relax as well. I was looking for a small hotel or guesthouse but with excellent service and amenities.

Once again, I had the pleasure to spend a week at La Maison Rouge in Cotonou. This small boutique hotel (21 rooms) offers a very friendly and professional service to its guests. Decorated with exquisite taste, the hotel is designed like an art gallery: paintings, furniture, and sculptures are exposed in the lobbies, hallways and rooms of the three houses....

Somewhat strange to say that this was a very good but frustrating experience. Maison Rouge is located into the CENSAD compound, thus safe and quiet. The hotel was built by renovating and modifying the houses initially made to accommodate the CENSAD delegations. Very nice decoration, nice objects and art pieces. Very friendly and efficient service. Good food, served all day...

Maison Rouge is just a lovely place! It's like staying with friends and family, except you don't have to talk to anybody if you don't want to, but you never feel alone.
