This hotel is located in the very centre which can be a boon (short distances to other places in the centre) or a disadvantage (traffic). The inside of the building is considerably better than the street-facing facade, and the garden with its pool is an oasis of tranquility and really lovely. The rooms are clean but a bit dated, that... More

The review says average but what I meant is good, too bad that option isn't available. This is a nice little hotel near a bustling local market and the port. The area may seem to be a bit rough in appearance to people who haven't traveled extensively in Africa so first timers might feel a bit intimidated. They have a... More

I was robbed of my mobile during the day in front of the hotel entrance. The hotel for the price that... More

This is a very good hotel with very nice staff except for one barmaid by the name of "Angelique". For this woman the customers are a nuisance and treats them in a very discourteous manner. I was residing in this hotel for nearly three months and I encountered several embarrasing experiences with this barmaid and on the last day of... More

Overall, The Faidherbe is a decent hotel in Dakar. The hotel is centrally located and offers very reasonable room rates. It's a 5 to 10 minute walk to get to the port and within walking distance to the markets. The rooms are basic but relatively clean and air conditioned. There is a pool behind the hotel on the fenced-in hotel... More
