I stayed a week at Onomo recently. It's a good enough hotel for the purpose I was staying in Bamako. From the outside the hotel looks not much like a hotel - I arrived late - as the AirFrance flights do arrive 9:30pm and got to the hotel a little after 11pm. Big steel gates with a team of security guards to greet the incoming vehicles. Having travelled from the USA on the Saturday, and all day Sunday to get to Bamako - the fast check-in was REALLY appreciated. I had no local cash on me to tip the porter - but he was friendly non-the-less whether he received one or not. The room is small, but adequate if all you are doing is using the room to bathe and sleep. The water is hot and the pressure is good. Too small to be used as a work environment - even if they do try add a small table and chair in the room. It's just out-of-place and adds clutter. Better to work downstairs where there is a work area in the reception. The internet works. There is a place for hanging clothing, and a small camping closet which I found useful for additional items that don't hang. Never switched on the TV once. Although breakfast is available daily, I only had fruit on one day from the buffet. Found the bar menu more appetizing than the formal dinner menu. I won't order the mutton stew. They had a social evening (Sat) out in the Atrium which is lush and pretty with local musicians to entertain. Checked out without any of the problems others report with an Expedia booking. There is an ATM on-site.
