Lets be perfectly honest straight from the start, this little hotel in Port Gentil could be superb, however, the hotel and the Bar/restaurant are two different business and the basics between the two are like night and day. So lets start with the hotel, Reception is perfect, the ladies are extremely helpful and very courteous, within two minutes of arriving...

Remember that you are not in Paris and therefore you don't have thousands of restaurants to compare... During my job mission in Port Gentil, this restaurant was absolutely at top of my favorite list. Quite nice and gentle crew, as well as the French Lady who is the Manager. Food is really excellent and dessert at the end is a...

I have been to POG many times and stayed in Chez Jimmy. A pefectly clean and tidy place, whose management care about every single detail (clean and fresh room, towels, all accessories in place, etc). It may not be the fanciest but you will find the beauty of simplicity and reliability. The staff is wonderful and with the highest service...

A very clean and tidy hotel offering very quiet accommodation. Wifi works well in all areas of the hotel including the rooms. Food is good if a little limited, go for the french menu as there is more choice. Breakfast could also be improved with more choices especially fresh fruit. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. A very...

Chez Jimmy is a real surprise in the most positive sense. although along one of the main roads in Port Gentil, the rooms are way back, located around a quiet courtyard. Security is good, guests have to pass through a gate so no unwanted visitors. Nice and spacious rooms, clean and with modern design. The Restaurant, also accessible for the...

I can say, that hotel is the best in Port Gentil. It is very accurate, nice new rooms and very good bathrooms too. The hotel crew is friendly. The food in the evenig is very good, but the breakfest could be more varied.

I agree with Thierry, Chez Jimmy is great. Last time I was here I stayed at the La Meridian ( a real joke) never again now that I've stayed at Chez Jimmy. The staff here do a fabulous job, the rooms are spotless, food is very good. Only complaint is mostly French TV, but I am sure if enough English...

The rooms are spacious and clean. The housekeeping staffs are dedicated and ensure rooms are cleaned. If you are English speaking, you may find it a bit challenging to communicate but you will get through as I did - Google translator is handy at times like this. The internet service is average, enables work to be done. Telephone for internal...
