I stayed here for two nights this October and I can say I had a really good time. Nice and very helpful reception staff, nice chic and spacious room with abstract decorations, located in the very heart of Dakar close to all the administrative buildings and embassies. Breakfast was nice and a decent bar for chillaxing. Will definitely stay here... More

The conference had been promised a breakfast included in the price of the rooms, which... More

The room was also smelly, aircon too loud, fortunately it was cold so i turned off the aircon so I could... More

Hotel reception is very dark inside, room fairly dated and dangerous A/C - switch was broken in my room so you have to press the fuse into place and watch the sparks jump....hmmm. Free wifi in the room - you have to get a daily voucher from reception but it seemed to work without any problem. Hotel seems to be... More
