I often visit sub-saharan Africa for business. The improvements are visible in Dakar by naked eyes each and every time I visit this beautiful country. The last stay was 5 days for continues meetings. The conference center is perfect. If you visit sub-saharan Africa this Hotel deserves the real 5 stars. Avoid the Spa. The rooms have to be refurbished... More

It was very windy but I enjoyed my stay and even got a bIrthday cake from the hotel.... More

This hotel is really outdated despite the efforts to keep it in a working conditions. The staff is exceptional and deserves a five start for their dedication and the quality of the service provided. The location is good too. As for the restaurants, the menu choice is large enough to accommodate all tastes. Only if the amenities can be renovated.... More

We still enjoy staying at this hotel which, although is getting older by the year, has a certain dated charm about it. All the staff are extremely polite and friendly. The rooms and bathrooms are in a desperate need of modernising (considering its 5 stars). The breakfast buffet is simply glorious. You can have your eggs/omelettes cooked as ordered in... More

Nice hotel. we were there for a business trip. and it was perfect for what we needed to do. You need to locate your conference hall, or meeting hall prior to the day itself lest you want to spend 10 to 15 minutes Cchoices are wide, and so diverse. Something for everyone. staff are friendly. very friendly. and always available... More

in my opinion musn t be classified as a 5 Star -Hotel, in the rooms it was almost impossible to use wireless, but breakfast was one of the best one i have ever seen in african countries. a bit of older building has the place, but has a good swimming pool on the other hand.

I have been here twice now. First time, I had a meeting but was not staying here. I loved the food. Now, I am back and the rooms are old. For a big hotel, it could be better. The bathroom walls in my room are dirty. Haven't been scrubbed in awhile. Then, my biggest problem was the internet. I could... More

At the same price, stay at the Radisson Blu. It's one of those things you see when a five-star chain revamps their portfolio and sell off a hotel which no longer fits... in India, in Africa, around the world. The KFP is one such. Now it's mammoth rooms & grounds has a faded jaded feel about it which is just... More

Nice curteous staff, be prepared for shocking prices at the bar... A shot of laphroeg 10, which retails for 24 euro a bottle, was 16,000 funny-money, I could have bought the whole bottle for the price of one drink...stay here, but don't drink here....
