Stayed here for a week on business. The location is generally decent, it is within walking distance to the US embassy if that matters to you. Check in was easy though the rooms were pretty bland. Biggest disappointment was the internet which was very slow throughout the hotel. The staff were courteous though hardly friendly. There is a beach area... More

My family and I spent a really wonderful Saturday by the pool at King Fahd's. We have a 19th month old and we were given lounge chairs and umbrellas right by the, nice sized, children's pool. We got there about 11am and had the are, almost, to ourselves for an hour before people started arriving. Next time we plan to... More

Well the King has some pros and cons; the hotel has seen better days with the rooms needing some updates. Staff is very good and quick to respond, towels and sheets are clean, but the musty rooms need work. This hotel would get better reviews if they replaced the carpet and upgraded the air conditioning.

Stayed there late July for three nights. Pleasant staff, food OK. Breakfast based more on a continental style, and plentiful with good fruit. Cooked breakfast is available though. Rooms are OK, clean and comfortable. Air conditioning perhaps too good, my bedroom was at time cold. I would use the hotel again.

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 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.
