Rooms are nice compared to the city around the hotel. Staff are courteous and helpful, enough so to go out and get two electrical adaptors for me. The buffet offered in the restaurant are delightful and delicious. Fresh fish are on hand everyday. The bathrooms are small, just like in France. Go figure. I was able to view a Senegalese... More

Nothing special, but for a business hotel good enough. Airport pick-up worked well. Room was clean, staff were friendly enough and there was a good selection at breakfast. I didn't eat dinner in the hotel but discovered a handful of good restaurants within a short walk.

Its not my first stay at the Novotel. The reason for my return visits are simple. The hotel is efficient, rooms are clean and up to standard, food is nice and staff are friendly. Everything works in this hotel and that is very important with regards to my frequent business travels. Agreed that there are not great culinary surprises here... More

As with all hotel chains the Novotel Dakar has a certain anonymity but it is also very welcome after many hours driving and warm temperatures. In the centre of the city close to banks, shopping and restaurants. On our arrival our group of twelve found plenty of parking for our vehicles within the grounds and reception staff quickly and efficiently... More

This by African standards is a very good hotel. The staff are friendly and efficient and the rooms are clean and well maintained. It is a real plus to have cable tv with a good selection of channels. The pool is nice and there is a free shuttle bus to and from the airport, which is far better than chancing... More

Ibis and Novotel share the same compound and is right next to the Central bank of West Africa. though located in central Dakar, the hotel is quite and peaceful. Rooms are good, but the comfort level is... More

Food was very expensive. Services were regular too bad… Rooms are normal size and they were basically cleaned. Basically too much "normal", nice stay but overrated for sure. If they don’t reduce price, i will not return.
