    This breezy, open hotel and grounds is a sweet place to spend a few days. Staff are attentive, the restaurant serves excellent seafood (meals CFA5700 to CFA7100) and a backup generator for the air-con keeps things cool.

    Côté Sud

    Seeking a relaxing cocoon in Lomé with homely qualities? This champ of a guesthouse, run by a Frenchman who fell in love with Togo, has all the key ingredients, with five spacious, light and spick-and-span rooms, prim bathrooms and a small garden. The on-site restaurant (mains CFA3600 to CFA6100) is a winner for tasty French dishes with an African twist.

    Hôtel Napoléon Lagune

    The Napoléon Lagune is not in the centre but its perch on a lively stretch of the Bé lagoon is outstanding. It offers a range of well-equipped (if unspectacular) rooms at reasonable prices. Good service, satellite TV, a plant-filled garden, a small pool and an excellent restaurant (mains CFA3500 to CFA6200) are among the other highlights.

    La Douceur

    Down a dirt track in the stadium's neighbourhood you'll find this cosy bird's nest in a proudly maintained and flowered little compound; rooms are spotless, with simple decor. The well-stocked bar serves the coldest beer in town and the paillote (straw awning) restaurant serves fresh, well-prepared food (mains CFA1600 to CFA4000).

    Marie Antoinette

    A fantastic choice, with bright clean rooms. Extra touches like colourful wall murals in the rooms put a smile on your face each morning, as does the over-the-top service. Exceptional value and worth being a bit outside town for.

    My Diana Guesthouse

    A family affair, this lovely guesthouse is a simple but proudly maintained establishment. The room includes use of the kitchen, a spacious garden terrace and TV lounge. It's a great bargain.

    Hôtel Belle-Vue

    In the leafy district of Kodjoviakopé, the Belle-Vue is a stylish option that won't break the bank. Rooms are spotless and elegantly decorated with African print curtains and dark-wood furniture. It is also home to one of Lomé's best restaurants, La Belle Époque, and has a great paillote (shaded seats) bar in a lush garden. A cool retreat.

  • Lodging in Lac Togo

    Hôtel Le Lac

    East of Agbodrafo, this breezy, resort-like venture on the shores of Lac Togo is a reliable choice. The renovated rooms are spacious, with private patios and sweeping lake views. There's a good restaurant (mains CFA2800 to CFA6000) overlooking the lake, a swimming pool and a small beach from where you can swim in the lake. Pirogue trips to Togoville (CFA3600) can easily be arranged.

  • Lodging in Lomé

    Veronica Guest House

    This charming 10-room hotel with professional staff, beautiful mahogany fittings and a pint-sized pool is a more Togolese alternative to the chain hotels. Both rooms and common areas are particularly spotless. Although it's on the busy highway, the rooms have thick double-glazing and views across the road to the beach. Meals are available (CFA13,000).

  • Lodging in Atakpamé

    Hôtel California

    Despite being at the back of the Total petrol station, this hotel-restaurant is a good surprise, with uncomplicated yet spotless rooms, salubrious bathrooms, excellent food (mains CFA1700 to CFA5000) and a friendly welcome. Opt for the air-con rooms, which have en-suite bathrooms and are noticeably better maintained than the fan-cooled units.

  • Lodging in Kpalimé

    Hôtel Le Geyser

    You'll find the tranquil Hôtel Le Geyser 2km from the centre on the road to Klouto, in a balmy garden setting. Rooms are well tended, functional and airy, and the restaurant (mains CFA3500 to CFA5000) serves good African and European dishes. A real hit is the pool, larger than most others and kept impeccably clean.

  • Lodging in Dapaong

    Hôtel Le Campement

    This is Dapaong's only midrange hotel, but it's a tad overpriced. However, rooms are pleasant and spacious, and the overgrown garden filled with oversized sculptures is a cool place to laze around. The French bar-restaurant is expensive (mains from CFA4200), but the food is very tasty – and the desserts amazing.

  • Lodging in Lomé

    Auberge Le Galion

    This Swiss-owned hotel is the stalwart of budget accommodation in Lomé. The 24 rooms are basic but clean and the restaurant (mains CFA1900 to CFA5400) and bar are very popular, particularly for the live-music sessions on Friday nights. The more expensive rooms have hot water. It's in a quiet, residential area.

  • Lodging in Kpalimé

    Auberge Vakpo Guest House

    A well-run little number with a quiet location near the Catholic church, Auberge Vakpo offers neat rooms with good bedding, meticulous bathrooms and a lovely pleasure garden complete with flower bushes, mural frescoes and sculptures. Meals are available for CFA3700. They also organise local excursions.

  • Lodging in Lomé

    Hôtel Mercure-Sarakawa

    Despite its concrete bunker exterior, this is one of West Africa's most exclusive hotels, 3km east of the centre on the coastal road to Benin. Rooms are comfortable, but the Sarakawa's main drawcard is its stunning Olympic-sized swimming pool set in acres of coconut grove. Rates include breakfast.

  • Lodging in Lomé

    Hôtel Ibis-le Bénin

    Travellers love the swimming pool here, not to mention the expansive shady grounds. The rooms in the motel-like building lack character, but it’s tidy enough and renovation plans are under way. Rooms on the top floors have lovely sea views.

  • Lodging in Dapaong

    Auberge Idriss

    A tidy little guesthouse in a quiet neighbourhood 2km north of town. Rooms in the main building are spacious; those in the annexe have shared facilities but are cosier. Rooms with air-con have en-suite bathrooms.

  • Lodging in Aného

    Hôtel Oasis

    An unbeatable location east of the bridge, looking across the lagoon and the beach to the sea. The terrace is a prime place for a sunset drink. Rooms are basic, though – you're paying for the location.
