All Cotonou hotels adhere to this aesthetic, and no more so than the Hotel Du Port, the founder of which, M. de Meneiras, (see portrait above) should be shot in my opinion. Now, I don’t actually mind a bit of kitch, but I object to it when it takes itself seriously. This hotel should be avoided at all costs, should you venture this way,. Don’t believe what the Lonely Planet says. The Hotel du Port labours under the misconception that it is a good hotel, and charges accordingly. Of course I knew the price when we checked in, but was desperate for a pool, and had momentarily lost my nerve for more zemijeans.
