Accommodation

There are a reasonable number of hotels in major cities, particularly in Abidjan which boasts several of international standards. In general most towns will offer three classes of accommodation ranging from luxury right down to economy which is fairly basic. Hotels are busy so it is advisable to book your stay in advance. There isn't much bed and breakfast or hostel style accommodation available in the country and due to the current political climate it is recommended that travelers stay in a reputable hotel rather than more traditional lodgings used by backpackers.
