I try to stay at an Accor chain hotel wherever I go so Novotel Dakar is like home coming away from home. This hotel is a no brainer: if you go elsewhere you are wasting precious time and money. Together with the Novotel Cotonou and Pullmann Lomé the Novotel Dakar is in my top 3! Tip: Ask Pape Biramé for... More

So on arrival the kitchen was closed. So no hot food just sandwiches. They knew that we were arriving late and they knew that we are on a late flight. But the kitchen can't stay open for another 30mins. So that was a bit poor. However apart from that the room was very clean the bed firm the view from... More

The problems began early. I asked the hotel for an airport pick-up and had my travel agent re-confirm but it was not there. Dakar airport arrival is a terrible experience, more so if you are travelling alone and find you must negotiate a taxi late at night (hard-to-find in an extremely intimidating environment). At reception I was rudely told that... More

This was my first experience in Africa after a 30 year absence. I was amazed by all the amenities at this hotel, including the lobby which I found very pleasant, especially with all of the whimsical figures made from wire, wood, and beads. I was astounded by the clean modern bathrooms. The carpet was truly disgusting and needs to be... More

Business vibe. Bkfast was just ok. Lots of breads and greasy stuff. Ppl seating alone at tables for two (business travellers) made for an interesting view every morning. Room was mediocre. Dirty carpet. Run down. Tiny window. Lunch buffet was good. La Fourchette restaurant nearby is great. Didn't try the pool, which just like the rest is just ok. Nothing... More

Novotel-the name speaks itself. Since i am a frequent business traveller so wherever i go i first locate the novotel as i am generally satisfied with overall experience. Unfortunately, the rooms of Dakar Novotel was a bit low what i had expected but nevertheless other things were surplus. Like the lobby, pool area and the atlantic view from the room.... More

I recently stayed in Novotel Dakar for 3 weeks on a business trip. The hotel is conveniently located with the Atlantic providing a magnificient backdrop. Rooms are comfortable though they may not be the largest compared to similar category hotels. The pool area at the backyard is a perfect place to unwind at the end of a hard day's work.... More

The rooms are very comfortable and we even had a kettle.The situation is convenient for visiting the city and the pool area and gardens are very pleasant. We had a good breakfast and... More

I love coming here for conferences and workshops. The staff are so friendly and helpful, and everything works. The wifi is good, but best of all is the lunch buffet. An amazing array of salads complemented by hot dishes that cater for both local and western tastes. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the terrace was made even more... More
