Me and my girlfriend stayed at Al Baraka for 2 nights and I can't complain about anything really. The room was clean and had everything you could ask for. The location of the hotel is also very central plus the staff is very friendly. In addition, me and my girlfriend had the pleasure to meet the owner of the hotel.... More

I stayed here for 5 weeks, and it is very comfortable. Rooms are big and bright. I'd room facing the street but it was very peaceful. One of the best thing is it's location. Staff is quite friendly, they speak English and ready to help anytime. I read some review about poor cleanliness, i did not agree with that, the... More

We booked a room online after reading the reviews. We could only conclude that not all the reviews are genuine. Any refurbishment must have been done in the 90s (or before). The rooms are dated (we managed to look inside any rooms as they were being 'cleaned'). We could not think of a more basic room/bathroom. The bed was filthy... More

Just back from 2 weeks in Senegal and staying in atleast 5 different hotels. The Baraka is very comfortable, with big bright rooms. Its location is terrific. A 1 minute walk to the Mayors Office, 2 mins to Independance place and a nice 5 minute walk to the Institut Francais and Le Bidew! The breakfast at 3500cfa is a letdown... More

Clean, efficient and spacious room. HUGE bathroom with a hot water shower (great water pressure). Great location with lots of places to eat nearby. Lovely courtyard breakfast area. Friendly staff, some of whom spoke English very well. I had the room facing the street but it was quiet.

PROs: Strong Wifi connection. Very nicely renovated room that was clean and modern. The reviews that say otherwise are probably outdated. I was just there Nov 2013 and the place is renovated and very nice. Large bathroom. Balcony. Good location, within walking distance to Sandanga market and many other sites. Concierge SUPER nice and helpful. Bar & restaurant downstairs. Elevator!... More

One thing you'll realized about Dakar very quickly is that hotels are expensive and you often don't get what you pay for. Hotel Al Baraka is one of the rare finds where price reflects what you will get. Seriously, try to find a decent hotel DOWNTOWN for the prices Baraka offers. It's no frills, but you'll get a large room... More

No frills but reasonable value for the money. Hotel staff were helpful and friendly and the location is great for walking around the central city areas with plenty of eating places near by. Wi fi worked which is always a bonus.
