So I stayed at the hotel once again due to business and I got to say that this hotel in my opinion is just good it's not that excellent but when it comes to security I guess it's really good, the north American embassy is just 100 mts away. The hotel seems to be in renovation...the rooms are bit old,... More

Rooms : They are getting a little outdated but roomy. Air conditioning did not work quite right. Location: Great view over the ocean. Close to the airport. But a little bit far from the city main attractions, restaurants and other entertainment venues. Amenities: Perfect for a business meeting with the adjacent convention facility. Checking : The front desk staff need... More

This is a very nice hotel. Large and has a roomy feeling throughout. A little dated with dark colors and wood but clean and well maintained. It is roomy and adjacent for a convention facility. Perfect for a business meeting. Less so for vacation. Lots of building in Dakar. Hotels are scattered. Taxis are necessary to local travel for this... More

If you want a good hotel to cool your heals at in Dakar, I suggest you stay at this hotel. My stay was relaxing, clean, none frustrating and the food was excellent. Internet was adequate to complete my daily reports for work, Skype was poor, but the voice was usable. The rooms were a little outdated but roomy, I'm sure... More

It probably used to be a great hotel, but beside the pompous entrance, the rest of the hotel is poorly managed. No breakfast included, no real amenities, awful rooms and terrible management. In Dakar there are other high class hotel, so why come here? restaurants aren't great and the '80 business style doesn't help to make it palatable. Location is... More

This is a very good hotel and comparisons to 5 star hotels in Europe or North America are not fair. The place is huge and feels very secure. Breakfast buffet is hard to beat and is copious. Rooms are decent. Looking for the Ritz Carlton or a Club Med resort? You are a few thousand miles off.

In certain parts of the world feeling safe in a hotel is important. This hotel gives you that. The hotel from the outside is not that impressive but inside it is 5 star. Very good service from all the staff I have encounted. Very nice breakfast, be careful of the chilli sauce with the omelette it is on the hot... More

I do not even know where to begin or how to express my displeasure in this forsaken place! From black mold growing in your hotel rooms and on your clothes and luggage to the rude housekeeping/hotel staff. For starters the hotel was undergoing major renovations during my stay (which they did not mention when reservations took place) and the noise... More
