With the name imagined a 4/5 star experience. The lobby areas are very nice. Rooms are average and smell of mildew. Bathrooms are very nice. Food is fine. Pros: Proximity to airport and waterfront. Has a/c. Good bath products. Nice lobby area and restaurant. Took in large group of travelers after an emergency in the air over the Sahara. Excellent... More

I was there in May.I like the suites very big suite 3rd floor. I mean that was a suite. My boss suite was 5th floor bigger more like a two bedroom apartment. I like the arrangement in thr rooms they had good room service. It's very classic luxury mainly for official. It's the formerly meridian hotel now bought by middle... More

Probably the best western hotel in Dakar. Great facilities like a golf course, tennis courts, lovely pool and play area for kids. Obviously pricey but you get everything you need. Breakfast is French style of course. It's laid back so don't expect super fast service.

Excellent location on the edge of the city with great views of the ocean. The building shows its age from the outside but that is offset by well appointed interior and very friendly and helpful staff. Had dinner at beach side restaurant and was happy with quality and quantity of food as well as service. Pool area very pleasant indeed... More

I was last in Dakar in 2008 and the next visit was 6th April, 2015 and the experience has not been as mind blowing as that in 2008. At the airport there are Ebola testing gadgets as you enter the airport but there is also a new system of obtaining your visa. You can pay for it online (which is... More

It's known to be one of the best hotels in Senegal but compared to other hotels in the world it's not a 5 star hotel, just suitable for a family holiday and visit and contains a business center. It's too expensive for it standard.

King Fahd its a hotel nicely located in the coast of Senegal. Its in a premium area, highly secured, and that a big "yes" for North Africa. But thats pretty much it. The staff lacks training and attitude in terms of what the hotel tries to offer. The lobby and the corridors are massive, with decent rooms (the old ones)... More
