Ideally situated on the left bank of the Niger River, adjacent to the Congress Center, this 4 star hotel has a fine, international quality level of service. It’s position next to the newly built King Fahd bridge and on the principal axis to downtown places it at 20 minutes from the international airport of Bamako-Senou. You will notice the Touareg-influenced style in both the outside architecture and indoor décor which makes it one of Bamako’s premier hotels, the Salam is a classy place. From the marble-lined lobby to the warmly furnished rooms which are enormous and luxuriously equipped, it has everything to ensure a comfortable stay.

If you can snaffle one of the rooms on the upper floors, especially one that faces south towards the Niger River, you’ll discover a unique perspective on this low-slung city whose delightful location between river and hills is only apparent from above. In addition to the excellent rooms, you’ll find on the sprawling premises numerous gift shops, a swimming pool, tennis courts, bars and restaurants.
If you get up early enough, you may even be able to beat the rest of Bamako to an English-language newspaper or magazine (e.g., International Herald Tribune or Newsweek) which are scarce as gold dust in this resolutely Francophone city. Service is also professional. In short, there’s everything here that you need (and probably many things that you don’t need).
The Hotel Salam also features the works of well respected Senegalese artist Secka. Its 118 rooms, decorated with taste and elegance, are divided among the 5 stories (accessible via 2 elevators).
