This hotel has so much potential! Esthetically, it is actually one of the nicest hotels in Dakar although there are only 2 other "luxury" hotels in that city so the limited competition explains their lack of incentive to improve. After reading the reviews on TripAdvisor, I made sure to request a non ground-floor hotel room because anyone could literally walk... More

I travel often in Africa and I will admit that this is one of the best looking hotels I have visited and something you can expect from this brand. I have read several reviews and after spending a good week here the consensus is that it just under delivers. My frustrations and although not all bad, at the price you... More

It's a beautiful hotel in a great location. As in a lot of places priced like this, you pay for more than what you get. Food can be good, but it's hit or miss. My biggest qualm was the breakfast, which was not included in the room rate, and cost $27. Three of the mornings (out of the 4 I... More

Staff were friendly & approachable. Breakfast & dinner service was slow but cannot fault food. Free airport transport & wi-fi are big benefits for business travel Noisy at night due to some nearby construction or equipment noise I would hope to take more advantage of facilities (pool, gym, restaurant) during next stay when hopefully i won't be stuck in room...

The hotel is beautiful. I'll give it that. But that's where the good news ends... I had read earlier the reviews with great interest. Some positive, but with a number of discerning travelers noting service problems. The management (Mr. Jorgensen) generally replies in great dismay, saying things like: "We are really sorry for the inconvenience that you might have experienced... More

Expensive but at least you feel you are getting your money's worth. I booked online as an emergency (I usually stay in much more modest hotels for work) and it was a delight to be treated. Slight confusion with shuttle at airport - sometimes the driver is late. Check in smooth and I was upgraded to a delightful room with... More

First time staying at the Radisson (previous stays at the Terrou Bi) and it was a great stay. Lovely pool restaurant and wonderful staff. Although the Terrou Bi is a fine property, the Radisson remains the top spot in Dakar.
