Hotel Ideal (ave.Yennenga)
all of the above hotels have restaurant services but may be quite expensive.
there is any number of open air popular spots, especially around the airport and on ave. Yennenga where you get grilled chicken, kebabs and music, like Taxi Brousse, Lido Bar, Chawarma, Pili Pili etc.
But the better restaurants are indoors with French cuisine and air conditioning:

Le Verdoyant (open air pizzeria at the Place des Nations Unis)
Le Coq Bleu (on ave.Nkrumah, next to Air Algerie)

Hotel Photo Luxe
Auberge du Boulkiemdé

LAuberge (by far the best in Bobo)
a few new hotels are on the double carriage bypass which we havent tested.
SHG Ran Hotel
Orodara (60 km from the Mali frontier)
Le Prestige, a nice new hotel coming in from Bobo with good food (tel 960016) (6300F/nuit)
Hotel de lAmitié , in my view the only acceptable hotel with A/C and non A/C rooms, with an open air restaurant in the backyard.
Hotel Liberté (tel.550572)
Hotel du Lac (tel.457175)
several hotels, but only the ..... has acceptable international standard for conferences.
Hotel Le Relais
all of the following towns have only one acceptable hotel, therefore mostly full and advance reservations are necessary.
