Stayed for two weeks for work. Modern and clean, staff very friendly and nice food at the restaurant. Not much around the hotel, you need to move away for shops/restaurants/etc. Would definitively stay here again!

This is a very small and fancy hotel downtown Dakar. Great service, good food, modern and clean. The staff was always concerned for making us feel comfortable. The hotel doesn't have an ocean view, but doesn't really matter since the ocean is in walkable distance. If you get bored of the hotel restaurant, nearby there's a really good sushi place... More

Good hotel. Walking distance to UN offices. Some language issues with staff however management was quick to act. Only issue was checking in at 3am and checking out at 6 am where the night staff on duty and had no clue about negotiated rates and procedures

I really wanted to give this hotel a 4 or 5 rating, but I can't. As described in other reviews - the hotel is modern, rooms are very, very nice and the hotel, overall, is stylish. However, if you are only English speaking it is a problem because most of the staff does not speak English - tough to get... More

Rysara restaurant is a very modern, stylish design place in a residential area. For lunch, it was a perfect place, with a very modern decoration, nice staff and delicious dishes. Food was very tasty, nicely presented, with delicate flavours... French cuisine with an exotic touch. The restaurant was 2/3 empty, the other customers looked like upper class business men and...

A very modern, chic hotel - stacked stone, glass and chrome. It is a small boutique hotel in the southern area of the city in the "embassy zone" where a lot of the embassies, consulates and consular staff residences are. It offers you a nice escape from the gritty reality of African travel. Keep the shades in your room closed... More
