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

I loved out stay here. The hotel has been decorated in a supposedly traditional ochre red colour. The rooms have nice features and we had a very comfortable bed (no twin rooms were available so we just shared a double). The rooftop restaurant had a lovely view and decent food with a fantastic bar. As a first impression of Senegal... More

Helpful staff at this hotel. Warm atmosphere. Not fancy mind you, likely a 3-star outfit but the prices are appropriate, making it an excellent value hotel. Breakfast is included, buffet-style and is served in the rooftop resto. That same rooftop resto offers nice view of sunsets over cocktails, and of course dinner. Rooms differ. You may want to check for... More

We stayed for two nights at the beginning of our trip. Rooms are simply furnished and quite small as is the bathroom. The staff are welcoming and friendly. Breakfast is continental, although I think eggs are available if you want. Be aware, there are no lifts and breakfast/dinner is in the roof terrace restaurant. There is either a wide spiral... More

This is a great local hotel in Dakar. I stayed there for a week while I was at a conference. The roof-top cafe/bar has an excellent view of the coast and it is a relaxing place to spend some time in the morning or after a day in the city.
