Stayed there in January 2014 for one night, well located and clean rooms. Furthermore, they have hot water and pressure in the showers, which is not often the case in Senegal (if I compare with the other 8 hotels I have stayed in this country..). The staff is very nice, they knew our accompanist which is very appreciated at this... More

I have stayed at this hotel for two days and I had a nice experience. It is located next to the Atlantic Ocean and it has a breath taking view. It is clean and big room, room 24, but they have only french channels.

This was a nice enough hotel in the centre of Dakar, it's in a reasonably quiet area. The room was good, reasonably priced, the restaurante and bar was good. If you want a clean, friendly and reasonably priced place in the centre of Dakar then I would recommend it.

Stayed at this hotel in Feb 2007, but felt compelled to write a review in Feb 2008 when reading other reviews for the Oceanic (in preparation for another trip to Dakar). I would not recommend this hotel to other travelers, unless you have absolutely no choice! The room was not very clean (I ended up sleeping in my clothes because... More

After checking in and cleaning up (showers had hot water and good water pressure), we emerged from our retro-70s room to find a dirty old mattress had been discarded in the hallway directly outside our door. Well, we thought to ourselves, we suppose they'll get rid of it by the time we return from dinner. Alas, the dirty old mattress... More

The Oceanic is a three story hotel in downtown Dakar. Its very cheap about 1/4th of the price of Novhotel. It is next to the Market Kermel. You need reservations in the hoilday season and in the winter months. Ideal for larger parties they have some rooms for 4-6 people. Nice restaurant and good security.
