I stayed here four nights on business with a large group. This location is very close to the Dakar International Airport which may or may not be important to you. The facade of the hotel is sufficiently unappealing that on arrival, many of us thought we had gone to the wrong hotel and were about to be mugged. Once inside,... More

Stayed here for 3 nights at the suite. The rooms are spacious, with good clean and hygiene standards. The only negative was the wifi which did not work at the base level (the suites area). Otherwise the breakfast is sufficiently limited. Wifi works great near the reception. The views are pleasing and the servcie is good enough. The airport pickup... More

We spent two nights in this hotel. Distance from the airport to the hotel is about 5' by car. We received upgraded rooms (suites) which were OK. Clean, spacious but no wifi reception and only cold water available. Complaints at the reception resulted only in "we will advise our technician". The second night they finally came to repair the cold... More

The cab initially took us to the former "Virage", we booked a suite to make sure we would get a decent room in Dakar close to the airport. A horrible strong smell of toilet freshener was psrayed in the corridor and our room, certainly to cover a bad smell. We arrived in an overrated dump, with a dirty bathroom containing... More

This hotel is more than just a bargain, though it certainly is that. It has a wonderfully friendly and helpful staff from the doormen to the receptionists to the cleaner. It was remarkably clean. What a delightful enterprise!

When arriving in Dakar, it is often in the middle of the night. Even to the seasoned traveller, what awaits on the outside of the airport doors is not a pretty sight, especially at 4 am! We have stayed a few times at Le Virage hotel -- a 2 min taxi ride from the airport. The rooms are clean, the... More
