the hotel is safe, beautiful and designed from the local architecture, but the meat doesn't fit with this concept. The famous Burkinabe guinea fowl is missing from the menu

Le Grad Calao was a nice little oasis in the middle of the hustle and bustle of a busy Ouagadougou street. As an American first time visitor to Burkina, I felt safe and secure on the property of the Grand Calao. The rate was reasonable and the grounds were well kept. My room was very no frills, but nice, neat and best of all - air conditioned. The owner of the property was very visible, so that was somewhat reassuring. The main gripes I had with the hotel, was that they could use some kind of citronella or bug repellent candles in their dining and lounging areas. Also, the toilet in my room was not thoroughly cleaned (underneath the lid), but I always carry disinfectant wipes, so I took care of that myself. Overall, my experience at Le Grand Calao was pleasant.

An amazing little oasis

An amazing little oasis on the outskirts of the city. Comfortable rooms, pool is a welcome treat in the hot weather. The staff and owner were extremely helpful even with the language barrier.

First timer in Burkina Faso

I was pleasantly surprised by the warmth I got from the staff at Hotel Grand Calao. Lovely people, very helpful and a buzzing city. They were accommodating where I needed help and though I travelled alone I didn't feel that I was alone. It is a Great boutique hotel that I'd recommend to many. I also look forward to visit & explore more of the town again.
