I had the opportunity to stay at la Demeure several times over the last year. For business reasons or more recently with my family. it was just perfect. Rooms are very comfortable and spacious, the AC is efficient and quite (hard to find in Dakar). Breakfast is fantastic although you ll have to skip the lunch because portions are big... More

I stayed 4 nights at la Demeure and would recommend it to anyone traveling to Dakar. First, it is ideally located, a few minute drive away from the airport (the staff arranged airport pickup for me, which was very handy). It is also in a quiet neighbourhood, nevertheless very close to many bars and restaurants on the waterfront. Second, it... More

The main reason I decided to stay at this small hotel was the advertised proximity to a beach. The website says one can walk to the beach. I love to swim and wanted to walk to the beach. Well guess what? The beach is now closed, it is a place of prayer. The other aspects of this hotel are still... More

First time in Dakar and was impressed by our stay at La Demeure. It was cosy, felt safe, was relaxing and gave sense of freedom and more like being at home than in larger hotels that can tend to feel sterile, which is fine in some circumstances - but La Demeure worked best for this stage of the trip. Particularly... More

Fantastic location (5 min from the airport and a couple of blocks from the beach). Almadies is one of the nicest/safest areas of Dakar. Nobody harasses you in the daytime or night time. As pointed out by many reviewers, there are a number of great restaurants only a few blocks away. Kudos to Dina (receptionist/caretaker) who helped me solve any... More

On the surface, La Demeure is one of the cosiest hotels I've ever visited. Lots of lounge areas where you can chill in comfortable chairs. Rooftop terrace. Pool. You name it. DAY ONE We arrived after 6 o'clock p.m. Reception closed, no one to ask how things work here. No wifi. Not possible to use all the nice lounge areas... More

I stayed here for an extended time while apartment hunting- it was a very welcome change after staying at the King Fahd as the rooms are nicer, more comfortable, and there is more room to move around the space with common areas, kitchens, and extremely friendly staff. Fanta, the owner, has excellent taste and the whole place has stylish decor.... More

As others have mentioned, this is a lovely guesthouse in an excellent location (Almadies). It is within walking distance of several good restaurants, and is in a very safe community. (An excellent supermarket is a 10 minute walk.) The rooftop breakfast area is a nice place to relax. The pool is quite small (but I'm not a pool person!) The... More

I stayed at this hotel with my wife and daughter who is working in Senegal as Peace Corps Volunteer. We were upgraded to the spacious Zanzibar Suite at no extra cost. The hotel is very intimate, having only 7 rooms. There are many sitting rooms and a large kitchen available to guests. The roof garden was delightful had a fully... More
