After searching online for weeks for a place to stay in Dakar while studying French and doing some sightseeing, I found SenegalStyle. From the first email I was hooked. Sineta and Jonathan are the most welcoming folks imaginable, and made me feel at home from the minute I walked in the door. My room was large and comfortable, and spotlessly... More

Hi--Just wanted to second everyone's opinion of SenegalStyle B and B. It's great. Sineta is a perfect "cultural translator" having lived in Senegal 12 years. Plus she is a creative cook (in a very good sense!) and has wonderful connections with English (and French and Wolof!) speaking guides and taxi drivers. My husband, 21 year old son and I had... More

Me and my 2 teens ended up staying at Senegalstyle for a week. We were to do 2 weeks in West Africa, but had such a good time in Senegal - we extended our trip and spent the last half in Dakar! I had heard that Dakar was expensive (reading previous tripadvisor reviews) so I booked our rooms at Senegalstyle... More

The first night I was mentally, and physically exhausted.I got into my room which was far frrom the bathroom which I was told I'd be sharing with her sixteen-year-old son, certainly a very well educated, well mannered young man, but unconscious how his urine smelled if it weren't cleaned up. And he would leave the sink filthy with hairs stuck... More

jembequeen, Owner at SenegalStyle Bed & Breakfast, responded to this review

SenegalStyle B&B is an American owned homestay guesthouse and not a hotel. We serve both breakfast and dinner at one low price ($30 a night), however and that sets us apart from all the other accommodations here in Dakar. We live in a regular Senegalese neighborhood and conduct ourselves as our local Senegalese neighbors do. Normally people reserve their rooms... More

First, Sineta and her son Jonathan are fantastic. Senegal Style provides a gentle transition into greater Dakar which, to those inexperienced with Dakar/West Africa, can be overwhelming (I speak from experience). Here are a few reasons why I ultimately chose to stay at Sineta's B&B: 1. Price. Great Value. 2. Sineta speaks perfect english. She's an expat. That's very helpful... More

I travel a lot for work. I hook on high end hotel and B&B. It is always fun tasting local. But never experienced something as at Seneta's. She hosted me in her home (the B&B), fed me as an American prince (unbeatable Burger so far), and tour guided me around the city with her scooter (still one of the best... More

Sineta and her son Johnathan make your stay in Dakar comfortable and fun. If you want to stay in a place where people speak English, but you still get the real Senegalese experience, you must stay here. Sineta will welcome you into her home and help you find the things you need. We had never traveled to Africa before, but... More

Senegalstyle provides a simple yet nice accomodation in a clean and bug-free house, recommended for no-frills travellers. Sineta, the american owner, is very charming and full of initiative, cooks very good breakfast and dinner and does her best to make you feel at home. And she really makes it, offering useful suggestions and interesting motoscooter tours in the city! She... More

We have stayed for 14 days in SenegalStyle, It has been a wonderful experience for us, not only the price being affordable also Seneta and her Son, Jonathan, have made us feel, as if we are at home. Not to forget, she is the best cook, even I liked her food better than the big hotels in Dakar. So thanks... More
