I had a lovely stay at this hotel. The staff was very friendly and the breakfast was ample and delicious, well worth the price. One of the servers also brought some mafe for us to enjoy for a reasonable price. The room (a basic room) was spacious and the air conditioning worked well. The bathroom was a good size and... More

It's a nice hotel with a few rooms a couple of streets away from avenue Almadies, just surrounded by residency buildings of ambassadors. The rooms are spacious and nicely equipped, wifi and AC works properly. During my stay the shower needed repair, which I had to request at least twice to get it done. Food is tasty but breakfast is... More

Have been visiting Dakar since late 1990s on business but this was the first stay over at La Residence. Was recommended to me by an old colleague from France since I wished to be in close proximity to the Fahd Conference Center where I was attending meetings. The title of the venue is most appropriate and exceptional value for money.... More

This hotel was fine but after seeing all the four and five star reviews, I was a bit disappointed. No taxi drivers in Dakar knew where it was, making it difficult to get around. My room had a view only of the buildings opposite. There was just one option for the evening meal and it was always meat-based, which was... More

We stayed at La Residence for our anniversary weekend and loved it! The hotel is extremely quiet and we rarely saw other guests, making it feel as though we were staying in a private mansion almost all to ourselves! The rooms are very clean, the breakfasts are delicious and include omelets made to order, fresh fruit, pastries, and homemade yogurt.... More

La Residence is located in the well off district of Almadies, very near the ocean, but a ways from the heart of the city of Dakar. It is in a quiet location on a small back street, which is still unpaved, but serviceable, with several new buildings nearby, and close to the main roads, and several very enjoyable restaurants. The... More

This hotel was excellent. Not having any experience about traveling abroad in Senegal and being unsure about where to stay, this hotel was recommended to us. I'm glad as it was very, very nice. Don't hesitate to select this clean, modern, and welcoming hotel. The breakfast was excellent. Croissants, homemade yogurt, fresh fruit, eggs, and great coffee. Served on the... More

Beautiful, uniquely appointed rooms and common space. Feels like (and likely was) a senior diplomat's grand home. Ultra quiet: the little dirt road across from the Ghanaian and next to the Malaysian ambassadors, few guests (all business-like), walled-in courtyard, 24-hour security guard at the door, largely unused pool area, helpful staff. Plenty of hot water, AC, and a simple French-style... More

We really enjoyed staying at La Residence. The staff is accommodating and always trying to help out. We especially enjoyed the four legged 'staff'! Breakfast was delicious and the location of this hotel is very nice especially for walking to dinner. The room was nice and roomy but the bathroom was less than desirable.

Good variety of rooms, clean and well equipped. Excellent wifi, backup generator restaurant, swimming pool and helpful staff although English bit limited. Breakfasts are delicious. Nice lounge area for when needing change of atmosphere. Would recommend.
