Nice hotel in quiet part of town. Staff very friendly. Rooftop bar nice you can just see the sea. Avoid the annex if you can its not as nice. Food superb, I mean really good. Building work not a major issue, but you are aware it us happening

The hotel is small and located in a quiet side street, close to the coast in the center of the city. staff is friendly and efficient, and the (rather dark and small) room was tastefully decorated and offered a table with chair, stable wifi, appropriate air conditioning and a comfortable bed. The bathroom was very well equipped and clean. The... More

Good location, comfortable rooms, very pleasant rooftop restaurant and bar. Dakar can be rather overwhelming, and this hotel is a pleasant, relaxing oasis from the streets. Taxi queue just down the street, a few restaurants and hotels within walking distance.

I have stayed repeatedly at Hotel Le Djoloff. I have booked large groups of colleagues at Hotel Le Djoloff. Everyone loves this place. The location is great - a bit off-the-beaten path in the neighbourhood of Fann-Hock but near plenty: the fish market, craft market, university. The hotel is beautifully appointed but certain amenities (e.g., a pool) are not to... More

Great little hotel in a nice quiet neighbourhood - but a little remote if you want to boogie etc. Also when I was there they were starting to build a tall building just behind that would really impact on the charm of the terrace.

Unfortunately, I just stayed one night at this hotel, but I was very impressed and will definitely use it again when in Dakar. The hotel is very nicely conceived and furnished, the rooms are a pleasure to be in and the rooftop restaurant is excellent. The personnel is very friendly and efficient. I really enjoyed my stay.

I just spent two weeks there, though I was initially only booked for two...nights! I found refuge in this hotel after fleeing the salubrious King Fahd. The staff is young and helpful, from the front desk, to the bus boys and the restaurant staff. They consistently go the extra mile for instance, when she noticed I only had fruit for... More

I did not stay at this hotel but ate at their rooftop restaurant with several business colleagues. It was lovely and relaxing from start to finish, with great views, casual but attentive service, and delicious food. Price quite reasonable, too!

I spent a week in the hotel while travelling to Dakar for a Seminar. The place is clean and for those who are scared of insectes no worries. The place is spread with insecticide everyday. I loved the rooftop which is according me as interesting as the rooftops one can find in NYC. The only "bad" points: the size of... More
