far away from centre - the beach is not nice - expensive for the level, the bed is very bad, sometimes it brakes down. The staff ist friendly. It is noisy in the morning, you can hear every word which is spoken in the courtyard - the windows are to the aigle, so there is also less fresh air. To... More

Comming back out of the noisy, colourful chaos of bustling Dakar city I always enjoyed the quiet and homelike atmospere of this little hotel. You can sit together with Ruth the friendly owner sipping together a glas of red vine and listen to her experiences and advices from Senegal. She was all over! As well I had easily contact to...

The auberge is further from the city than I had realised (about 19 kms from downtown) and that is both a positive and a negative. It does mean a bit of time & money spent on taxis, but it also means staying in an area that is safe, peaceful and far from the madding crowd. Ruth and Ibra are terrific,... More

This small hotel of 10 rooms is in Parcelles Assainies, about 30 minutes away from Dakar city centre – 3000 CFA in a taxi. It is just a minutes walk from Yoff's Atlantic beach which stretches endlessly in both directions. The ten rooms are on two floors, set around a small courtyard where you can take drinks or eat snacks.... More

The Keur Diame Auberge is a safe haven in one of the beach suburbs of Dakar. The nearby beach itself is spectacular, but not for lying in the sun and bathing - the currents are too dangerous for swimming, but it is good for walks. The Auberge is very airy with lots of light coming from a central atrium that... More

Situated a short taxi drive from the city centre, this seaside guest house is a wonderful, and cheap place to stay. Owned bu a swiss lady, Ruth Isenschmid, who is non resident but visits often, this clean and welcoming auberge is suited to backpackers and travellers looking for a clean african guest house. Hot Shower, and the essential "english style"... More
