The shop is better than the hotel; if they put the same effort into the hotel as they have done for the shop it would be amazing. The shop is fabulous and full of local design items you will definitely stock up on. We loved the linen shirts. However, the hotel itself is an opportunity unfulfilled and they could do... More

The room was clean and large, the rooftop breakfast area was lovely. The staff wasn't really equipped to help tourists (suggest having maps, more suggestions for restaurants and sightseeing) but did try.

I just could not wait to get home to post this, I had to do it now, while Im still at the Hotel. It is fantastic!!! I feel so at home, wonderful décor, relaxing environment in a quiet suburb and very affordable. I had to spend two days at another hotel before moving here and I feel so cheated. If... More

The first time I stayed in Dakar I was at the Radisson Blu, which was nice enough, but impersonal, and so this time I wanted something a bit cozier (and less expensive!). I found La Demeure, and spent a total of seven nights in two stays (with a trip to Saint Louis in the middle), where I was quite happy.... More

Really nice place to stay in Dakar. Very tastefully decorated and the owner has exquisit taste. Situated in a quiet residential neighbourhood. Just make sure you have printed a map of where the hotel is located as taxi drivers struggled to find this without a map. Once I had a map it was easy.

A beautiful little hotel in the quiet neighborhood of Almedies. Comfortable, stylish and staffed by wonderful people. Other reviews haven't mentioned how close this is to the airport-- little over five minutes away. It's not often that one finds a beautiful place to stay in a quiet and trendy neighborhood so close to an international airport! If you stay here... More

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
