Still unclear to me whether the decor here is ironic or in earnest, but once you embrace the kitsch, it's great! The pool is also a welcome respite from Abidjan heat, and it is well located for restaurants and shops, including a great gelateria a 3 minute walk away. Comfy beds. Breakfast is very generous--maybe the biggest variety I've had... More

If you prefer a quite friendly and clean boutique hotel you would not be able to find better in Abidjan. If you didn't know where it was you would miss it. Hidden between a Vietnamese restaurant and a pharmacy it looks more like a garage entrance than an hotel but once past the frontage lies a very pleasant experience. The... More

La Licorne is very conveniently located off of Rue des Jardins with plenty of shops and restaurants, though on a quiet street. Each room has its own unique decor - that's wonderfully kitschy. Breakfast is provided and the hotel offers spa services (in a small, simple room). The outside is adorned with water fountains, and lanterns at night - but... More

A small, privately owned hotel in a quiet area of the city. Rooms were somewhat aged but not too bad for a West African location. If you want to get away from the panic of the city, this place is a good option. The restaurant service and food was very good.

service is not consistent; staff range from absolutely fabulous to rude and ridiculous. no variation in food available for breakfast or dinner and dinner prices are not consistent with price of accommodation. it's like it's 1990 when it comes to decor.

Recommend the place 100%, close to all places. Good value, net, food, private, rooms are spacious. Walking distance to most things , businesses. When on business trips, you need a place that has most and is low key. This is such a place .

Le Griffon is located in II Plateau on the busiest street of Rue de Jardin convenient if you are catching taxis. The rooms are Spartan but decent. The lobby area is comfortable enough for breakfast or tea. The restaurant has bad acoustics and a limited menu but it is pleasant and the staff prompt and accommodating. The only thing I... More

I just spent a week at La Licorne for business. It is no frills but safe, clean, comfortable enough, and with decent service. The quality of food for breakfast and dinner was good. The breakfast servers always did so with a happy smile; the dinner server kept her emotions more in check. The wifi was exceptionally good. Shops and restaurants... More

I stayed at La Licorne for 2 weeks recently on a business trip. The hotel is small and intimate and makes a pleasant change from the the venues in the city centre.
