I have been a few times and it is one of the best in Dakar. Although there are a few faults: no fridge in the rooms is not acceptable in Africa for the price of this hotel you cannot make phone calls from the hotel which is also not acceptable. Personnel does not make you feel at home, they do... More

Lá Residence is an excellent hotel on the Corniche, close to the westest tip of Africa. It is close to the beach, where you fund many small restaurants serving excellent fish. The hotel has big rooms and big bathrooms. Everything is clean and the service irreproachabile. I have lived for two years in Senegal, travelled a lot and this is... More

A lovely place - beautiful and quiet, just a minute's walk to the beach. The management is very friendly and if you like cats, they have a few that love to be petted and play with the guests. If you don't like cats, no worries, they do leave you alone until you engage them. ;-] The breakfast, while not included... More

Stayed here for one week in March 2015, attending a conference in the King Fahd conference center across the street. This is a wonderful choice for anyone wanting to be near embassies/conference center and out of town. Quiet, friendly, spotlessly clean, only 15 rooms, each one very large; good, firm mattresses; large bathroom (shower only) with plenty of hot water.... More

This is the kind of "at home in the world" place that you almost hesitate to review - selfishly - to ensure availability for your next stay. Each room is unique and artfully designed, so check online if you are lucky enough to have a choice. The common areas, verandahs and garden poolside area extend the space, so that if... More

Nice boutique hotel in a quiet area of Dakar near the American Embassy. We didn't like Dakar too much (quite a lot of hassle) but the area of this hotel is ok. There are some nice fish restaurants nearby, on the seafront. Rooms are spacious, well designed and furnished to high standards. The pool area is relaxing, the grounds attractive... More

A bit late, but here goes my kind of ‘ubuesque’ story anyway… On 5 September at noon, the receptionist at Residence Dakar called me at work to ask if I had given my key to someone to get something in my room. Of course not, otherwise I would have advised first. She then told me to come right away as... More

I stayed here for 5 nights in December. I arrived in the early hours of the morning and after searching with the taxi driver for this place we finally found it. The security guard in the gatehouse let me in and I was taken to my room. I booked the cheapest room, which was reasonably priced but did not include... More

Great place to stay, clean, smart, staff go out of their way to please, the room was beyond expectations, wifi is excellent, beautiful garden, though breakfast was just basic for the rather high price close to most amenities, would recommend this place.

I was looking for a reasonably priced hotel in the Almadies quartier of Dakar and came across La Residence Dakar on TripAdvisor. It looked good, or at least better than any of the options available, so I took a chance and, as it turns out, lucked out in my choice. I'd classify La Residence as a cross between a Boutique...
