  • It's a building that can be seen from a distance only. The police will keep you away from the entrance. So not exciting at all.

  • We hosted a 100-person conference here with a meal, and both were excellent - good AV facilities, translation, clean, well-organized.

  • , Cotonou, Beninsymbol of our love and our commitment to the country. our Amazon's knew how, by their bravery, as much as they men, to defend the fatherland. tell our amazons the Beninese woman is our pride..........such a wonderful place ....just i think they can make for resting something like sitting....
  • The process for retrieving my COVID-19 test results and passport was quick, and I also paid for and got tested fairly quickly. However, I was treated rudely by some staff members because I did not speak French, it seemed, and there were times when they laughed in my face and waved me away when I asked questions. But, at least I did not have to linger long.
