Bamako provides numerous lodging options--from basic and budget-friendly to high-end and luxurious. Affordable rooms are spread across the city, mostly available without reservations; if you want to pay more for privacy and fancier accommodations, check out the four- and five-star resorts clustered downtown, near the riverside. The large, diverse bed and breakfast selection lies in the areas of Sema and Hippodrome, while more luxurious hotels stand near the railway station in Dar Salam.
