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

I stayed at the Djoloff twice in the last couple of months: Pros: - good room, although no space to work - very nice roof top terrace - good food, ok breakfast - ok internet, sometimes badly slow (there is better internet in Dakar) - good location in Fann Hock All in all acceptable and nice for the price, but...

It was a wonderful experience. The owners are very aware of the needs of international tourists. I was there for about a week. I even had to get a room change and the managers were very accommodating. When I return to Dakar, this is the place where I will stay for sure.

I had heard and read good things about Hotel Djoloff, but I did not really expect that my experience would rise to those rave reviews. Well, I was wrong! The room was delightful - neat and clean, with a nice quiet air conditioning -- a welcome place to relax in peace and quiet after the hustle and bustle of Dakar.... More

I was already having an amazing trip in Senegal. I visited Goree Island and the Holy City of Touba. It was a spiritual kind of renaissance for me ... very emotional. Before leaving, I had a chance to stay at the Hotel Le Djoloff ... and all I can say is that I felt like I had found my long-lost... More

Stayed at Le Djoloff for a few days on a business trip. I love Dakar first of all, so being there is always a treat. The hotel was super cute, and the staff was so nice. Although we had checked out they saved us a room each so that we could shower and store our stuff before we headed to... More

This lovely roof-top restaurant specializes in tapas with an ever-changing, seasonal menu is always changing. We've been three or four times and never leave without full, happy tummies. The rooftop view is great and there are enough vegetarian options to feed the herbivores in your group.

Loved this hotel. Unusual and full of character. Good willing service. Lovely roof bar/restaurant with fine views of the sea. The positive comments of other contributors are certainly true… BUT these days I get very frustrated when a hotel's WiFi doesn't work - even though the IT guy tried re-booting the hotel modem and then came quickly to my room...

I almost didn't pubish this. I love this place so much, I would hate for it to be over run. All rooms have individual character. The staff is lovely and helfpul. Sitting and eattig on the roof is such a relaxing activity. And it's just a gorgeous spot. My favorite on the continent. I'm hoping to be competing with the... More
