A wonderful place to stay in Dakar. Lovely owners, friendly staff, and a down-to-earth vibe make for a cool, clean oasis in the middle of the big city. The suites, especially Zanzibar, are well worth the additional cost, with huge windows, comfortable beds, and large bathrooms. The rooftop terrace is a perfect place for breakfast (which was delicious, though expensive... More

We travelled to Dakar to see our son who teaches there and to meet our new daughter-in-law and her family. We made our reservations within a month of our arrival and were only able to book two nights. We felt these two nights at La Demeure would give us the opportunity to acclimatize ourselves before jumping into the City. The... More

We recently spent 5 nights at La Demeure and found it very pleasant. Our first room did not meet our expectations but they were very accommodating in making a change for us after the first night. The breakfasts on the roof terrace were a delight. Not only continental offerings but they also included a cooked pancake or omelet. The staff... More

I recently spent two nights at La Demeure (based on reviews I read on Trip Advisor) and I was not disappointed. Beds were comfortable, bathrooms clean, good hot showers, Internet, and a lovely rooftop terrace for meals. Staff was very well trained and accommodating. The breakfasts were extra, but delicious, and we were able to eat one dinner in, which... More

So This was my fifth business trip to Dakar in 4 years and I was determined NOT to stay at a bad, expensive 5 star hotel. I have tried a few and always been disappointed. I found La Demeure on Trip Adviser and while at 49000 CFA a night its not cheap- it does not disappoint. I stayed in Jakarta... More

Location is perfect if you are looking for a resting place during your transfers while travelling through Dakar - you are 10 minutes by taxi from the airport (10euros charges). Hotel can arrange for a taxi to come and pick you up or i jumped in the yellow cab - no problems (just be clear how much you are paying... More

We stayed here for seven nights on three separate occasions. This establishment deserves it’s no. 1 Tripadvisor rating. It’s a huge house tastefully decorated with African and Indonesian art, where guests can sit by a small swimming pool, sit overlooking a terrace with fine views over Dakar or in a spacious living room area. You help yourself to drinks on... More

Stayed with my family here in the Lakipia room, the apartment on the top floor, had a wonderful time and it truly felt like a home away from home, as the apartment had a full kitchen and comfortable living room with beautiful decor (and a tv with CNN, and good wifi access). In fact the entire guesthouse has very beautiful... More

I absolutely love this guest house! The property is very comfortable and beautifully appointed. We stayed in the 2 bedroom rooftop apartment and it felt like a home away from home. I didn't mind the stairs since it added to the experience of the African culture. The staff was very friendly and accommodating, including our driver to and from the... More
