Hotel Charlistanne-Bomako, LomeI'm leaving for West Africa this afternoon. I had a booking at the Hotel Aristos in Lome for next Tuesday night. However, when I just reconfirmed with them, they said that their hotel is undergoing renovations, and that they've moved my reservation to their partner hotel, the Hotel Charlistanne-Bomako. They gave me an email for that hotel but it doesn't work.
Does anyone know anything about this hotel? It's supposed to be on the Av. de la Liberation, opposite the Ramco Supermarket, but from what I can see, the Ramco Supermarket isn't even on the Av. de la Liberation! I've found only two brief references to a Hotel Bomako via Google and Yahoo, but they gave no real info.
I'm debating cancelling this booking and finding a new hotel, so any any help you can provide will be greatly welcomed.

1Hope you've not paid!
Personally I would move on & go elsewhere, all sounds a little fishy to me, but I could be wrong.
If you want to be just the other side of the airport from Lome in a great environment at Aveposo, I can highly recommend Chez Alice ... although you've not stated what 'budget' you had in mind. It is a budget place but stunning & very friendly!

2I haven't paid...and my thoughts were the same as yours. It sounds sketchy.
I've since sent a couple of emails to some other hotels. No answers yet, but it is the weekend.
I'll probably try booking something through one of the on-line services. I found one I like in my budget (Lonely Planet "Mid-range").

The room we had was basic, but it was the cheapest, they have better rooms & their bar/restaurant area is not to be sniffed at, really stunning!
