Apart from the basilica, Hotel President, Yamoussokro is the tallest building in Yamousskoro. It was built by the late president Felix Houphet Boigny. The view of the city from the hotel’s apex is stunning, especially if you choose to have something to eat or drink. The hotel is mostly patronized by the elite, government officials and wealthy tourists who can afford the pricey products and services. The serenity of the hotel is amazing and its sheer size and design is indeed a sight to behold. Look out for some local traders selling beautiful works of art and crafts by the road adjacent to the hotel. The merchandize is worth buying.
