Staying at La Guesthouse was like staying at my Mom's place - very cozy and inviting. My room was very spacious and simply but beautifully decorated. The room was also equipped with a mosquito net and a fan, which I appreciated very much. Breakfast was simple but delightful. I thoroughly enjoyed the interactions I had with fellow guests over breakfast. La Guesthouse is located within walking distance, about 10-15minutes, from Etoile rouge, where you can catch the minibus or taxi to Ganvie, Allada, Quidah, and Abomey. However, for Ganvie, I would suggest taking a motorcycle (Zemidjan) as is only 25min away from Cotonou. The staff will help you flag a Zemidjan at the gate and advise you on the going rate, if needed. You could also walk to Dantokpa market from La Guesthouse- it should take 30 -40 minutes. I am truly glad I booked here. Nathalie, her husband, Cedric, and their entire staff were very attentive and helpful throughout my entire stay of 7 days. And for someone who has never been to West Africa, with limited knowledge of French and traveling alone, knowing there is someone who is ready to help me when needed was crucial to my overall Benin experience. I would definitely book with Nathalie again if another opportunity to visit Cotonou presents itself. If you are looking for a great place at an even greater value, I recommend you book at La Guesthouse. Happy travels!!!
