Reviewed 2 October 2009

I stayed at the Hotel Nord Sud for two and a half nights during my first stay in Bamako. I was encoraged by the two positive reviews for the hotel but was very disappointed by the reality. The hotel is at least average or better for West Africa, however, did not deserve the two positive reviews here and certainly three or four stars is excessive.
The staff was helpful and very pleasant, however, the condition of the rooms was marginal. As an example, entire sink faucet turned when turning the water on and off, bathrooms were badly in need of remodeling, air conditioner rattled loudly every 5-6 minutes throughout the night. The hotel also had a roach problem. I killed two in my room and my colleague killed two while we were in the hotel restaurant, one on the floor under the table and the second that was coming down the wall toward our table. Talk about an apettite killer.
I had a 10:45 PM flight out on the last night and was prepared to pay for a full nights lodging for that night on departure. The hotel was kind enough to only ask for payment for a half night's lodging which I paid in cash and then charged the other two nights to my credit card. Unfortunately, when I opened my copy of the bill at home, it failed to indicate the half night paid for the last day. I emailed the hotel requesting a corrected bill for my employer, however, still haven't received a response after 24 hours.
All in all I would discourage staying at this hotel. There appear to be better choices in Bamako than this for the same price or only a bit more.

the rooms are clean and there is a nice pool and small workout facility. it is well located for visiting government offices in town-many were within walking distance. no complaints at all. except--tons of mosquitos. they are in the rooms and in the lobby/restuarnat. we are not talking about one or two. there were swarms.

We arrived in Bamako with the Budapest-Bamako rally. The official startline was the Azalai Salam. This was a terrible disappointment. The staff was rude and obnoxious, the food poor, breakfast appaling and the rooms rather standard (considering the price).

After one night we decided to move (after a suggestion by some of our friends). We ended up at sister hotel Azalai Nord Sud. Officially this is supposed to be the lesser of the two. Instead, we found polite and helpful staff, pretty much the same rooms, better food and all that at half the price.

We would both whole heartedly recommend the Azalai Nord Sud.
