  • 4.0.Fair

    I was shocked to find out that a Sierra Leonean hotel would cater solely to Chinese customers. I bet no hotels in China would do the same. Where is the Sierra Leonean pride? Very limited local food, only Chinese foods. I changed rooms more than 3 times, due to infestations by what appeared to be termites. Breakfast was very poor. No pancakes, cheeses for omlets were very gooey. Management needs to understand that there are other customers at the hotel, apart from Chinese. Shout outs to the kitchen staff, including Kaday, Bah, Hassan, to name a few. The room attendant, Kaday was also very good. The hotel is quiet with a lot of potentials. Management needs to be more considerate and run the hotel like a facility in Sierra Leone, not like China. The Chinese need to adapt to the Sierra Leonean culture, including the food.

    Nice hotel, close to the beach 🏝 🏖 , love;y workers, it’s an intercultural exchange hotel, the Chinese people are friend;y and supportive, I stay here every time I visit my country, I feel more comfortable staying here than staying in my own home haha. They always give me good discount for my long term stay, they always forgive me because my son is very playful and stubborn and causes allot of trouble lol, kids. It’s the only hotel the president and other diplomats highly trust to host their meetings and events, as I’m writing now, I’m here with the Chinese President, it feels amazing. Very reasonable and family friendly \, I highly recommend

    A mixture of experiences. Overall, the staff were great, helpful, nice, but quite slow/unorganized on delivering on certain services (e.g. laundry). The restaurant itself was not as clean as a restaurant should be (and should not forget to mention the mice that we saw running under the tables during dinner time) and food was mediocre. Inexpensive, but would rather pay a bit more to get decent quality elsewhere.

    Disgusting service and food

    The bed was very hard, the hotel is extremely old. The number for the hotel on google is the number of their managers son. When I called in the morning of my arrival, the son was yelling at me for calling him. I told him this is the number on google and this is the number gave to me. I didn't know how to get to the hotel from the airport since it was my first tim visiting. The breakfast buffet is the saddest buffet in history. Poor presentation and looks very disgusting. I ordered pancakes because I couldn't see myself eating what they served. The waiter brought me something that looks like deep fried dough. I asked the waiter what is this? She said it is African pancakes. I asked her what is African pancakes, please bring me a normal pancake. It took the kitchen an hour plus to bring me a normal pancake. I'm very dissappointed with this place. I will never in my life stay here again. You guys need to educate your staff, and fix your information on google and on your website

    Nice place to stay at. Good breakfast. Nice staff.

    Everything was ok except for the mattress. I don't know whether they forgot and just left a box Spring without the mattress. Bed was too hard. I have back and neck pain which made it worst. Other than that it was ok.

    Comfort, quality and service

    The Bintumani is an excellent hotel to stay in if you're comfortable with paying extra for the wonderful amenities it offers while you're in Freetown. The luxurious quarters, super friendly and attentive staff, pool and views of the sea and magnificent sunsets from the hotel make it the optimal place to work in peace and or relax after a hard day's work in the busy city. It's set down on the peninsula, so removed from the busy city centre (which is easily and cheaply accessible by regular taxi or private car in about 20 minutes). The electricity tends to go off quite often, but they tend to turn the generators on quickly when that happens. There is one wing of the hotel that has a prevalence of mould (during the rainy season, when I was there, this is common in a lot of hotels), but you need only to ask for a room that is clear of that and you will be fine. Due to the nature of its owners and majority of their guests, the menu caters to the Chinese palate; however, there are some non-Chinese food options if you ask for them. Overall the food is very good, albeit much more expensive than what you will find elsewhere in Freetown. After all, with the Bintumani, it's all about location. Overall, I would rate it very good for the quality and comfort of the stay.

    Located close to the Sea Coach Express Boat terminal coming from the airport. This hotels major emphasis is to cater to Chinese clientele. From the food served to the tv channels.
