This is a great hotel: clean rooms, friendly reception, beautiful garden and lounge area. Close to the excellent Ngor restaurant (just a short walk along the beach). The airport transfer is overpriced (6.500 F), rather take a taxi (for around 2.000 F).

What a lovely place to base yourself if staying in Dakar. The room we had was perfect, the breakfast excellent and it was just wonderful having access to the pool and garden. I shall definitely use the hotel again on future trips to the city. It is also very convenient for the airport, and is in a quiet, safe neighbourhood.

We stayed at La Residence for the last 10 days of our 4 year stay in Senegal. It was the perfect oasis of calm, beauty and rest in a busy city, which at the end of the 8 months dry season reminds very much of the fact this is the Sahel zone. But the garden was a green wonder and... More

I stayed at La Residence during a business trip of about a week in June 2014. Plenty of friendly staff. Also good to see the (very friendly) owner and his wife on a daily basis. As I was departing very late at night, I found the "transit room" - equipped with a desk, TV, shower, washbasin, toilet and bed/couch very... More

It's been over a year since I have been to La Residence, but I promised the owners I would write a review. I had to create a profile but these people deserve it. The location is excellent, Dakar can get a little busy, this is in a quiet area, most of the people who live here either work for aid... More

The hotel is an oasis in the city. It is a boutique hotel whose owners live on site. It is a small hotel with a patio, garden and pool in the back. The patio was a great place to spend time at night. The rooms and bathrooms are large and kept very clean. Each bed has a mosquito net. They... More

This accomodation is located right in a construction area, and so will it be at least whole 2014. If you are looking for a calm stay, choose another place to stay. The positive is the nice garden with a swimming pool (unheated). There are some good restaurants right on the waterfront, close to the hotel. Otherwise is the location of... More

I stayed here literally because I was scared to death after reading the reviews of the nearby "Hotel des Almadies" where I had to be for a 3-day conference. I was pleasantly surprised by this place: everything was clean, rooms were very very nice, and internet worked incredibly well (contrary to what I had imagined when traveling to Senegal). The...
