I stayed there for the matter of hours, but I slept very well and I realized that the location is perfect, very near to Sandaga market and you can get everything cheaply from the shops around. The price was good as well, I believe.

I stayed in the Hotel Al Baraka for five days in November. The location is pretty well situated to experience the real Dakar, plus the ferries to Gore Island are within a short walking distance. The rooms and bathrooms were clean, and the wifi worked moderately well. But the staff is was really makes the hotel bad. When I would... More

We return to the Hotel Al Baraka every year. Why? Because the staff are very friendly and helpful and look after us so well. The rooms are of a good standard, the hotel is in a great central location, and the price is good value for a mid range hotel. You will struggle to find a better option in Dakar!

They let us down picking us from the airport as promised. But great location and the staff were very friendly, great big room. Nice breakfast. They dealt with my complaint very professionally with regards to my non existence arrival transfer. They explained they recently changed services and now were doing it with their own transport. I genuinely believe it was... More

Considering this room comes as free lodging with the organization I'm volunteering with, I was pleasantly surprised. I was a bit worried by the look of the street, but inside it's great. Reception were very helpful, especially when my taxi driver tried to run off with one of my bags! The room is cozy but not cramped and very bright.... More

The hotel is simple, clean and located in a central area of Dakar. It is close to shops, the local market and other hotels. I was impressed about the personnel at reception, they have been very kind,patient and dealt professionally with our last minute change of plan.

I stayed more than 50 nights in total when I was in Dakar for my project implementation. It was nice location at the center of plateau area and many restaurants nearby. All receptionists speak English well. Room was also nice, with air conditioner, fridge, and TV. I will stay again this hotel.

The room was spacious, clean, comfortable bed, cable TV, with workable AC and good hot water. The city is dusty. My balcony sliding door did not lock, but as I was on the 6th floor, I was not overly concerned. Staff was generally helpful, although a bellhop argued for a larger tip. The location is a short walk from the... More
