There are so many day visitors who visit Goree Island. If you would like to avoid the mass tourism, stay over night. This Hotel is a great place to stay, inexpensive with alot of charm. The rooms are big and located in an old stonehouse.

Simple but lovely room with shutters overlooking the street; very friendly,helpful staff, good food and a great spot to watch the ferry coming and going; the fishermen on the beech. Everything is in within a few minutes walk.

Absolutely everyone you meet in Senegal (and that includes Senegal-resident Americans) has only one objective - to extract the maximum amount of money from you by any possible means. Against that background, it was a pleasant surprise to encounter the staff of the Hostellerie Boufflers on Goree Island. When my son fell ill while visiting the island, the hotel staff... More

Position is excellent, rooms are quite big, bads are comfortable, there's hot water. Rooms have an old-fashion style, and I found it nice. It wasn't that pleasant to see some cockroaches at the entrance of... More

This is a lovely spot on beautiful Goree Island. Rooms are bright and simple but have everything you need - mosquito net, electricity and running water (shower). Breakfast is at the restaurant bar around the corner where you can sit outside and look down on the little beach/harbour. I should say that we came here from Sierra Leone so appreciated... More

If you are visiting Goree Island, I would suggest that you have lunch at the Hostellerie Boufflers Goree. Don't look at the menu, simply asking the waiter what fresh fish is has that day, ask for his suggestions on how best to cook it, order a 'Flag' beer, and watch the world go by. The fish, which I now forget... More

I traveled to Goree Island, and against most people's recommendations I stayed the night. The hotel was basic but very clean, the staff was very nice and helpful. I recommend a night on Goree, for a quiet, peaceful evening.
