Again, I write with the caveat that I've been living in rural Senegal for the last 3 months so everything is a change for me. Hotel du Phare is pretty great--lots of character, bright colors and friendly staff. They have an airport service for 5,000 CFA fixed, which is great for late night flights and delays. Mamelles is a sleepy... More

Last time I went to Dakar I decided to go off the 'mass tourism' circle and to go for a more 'human size' thing. I definitely found it in Hotel du Phare! This a very nice family run place, the staff is really welcoming and helpful. The breakfast is simple (but quite typical: Senegalese seem to be fond of Nscafe!)... More

My husband and I stayed two weeks in Senegal, and we had the best time thanks to the lovely Hotel du Phare's team: they warmly welcomed us and gave the best advices for trips and visits. We really enjoyed to get back to our cosy fresh room (and very clean compare to most of the other hotels we tested in... More

After booking for this Guest house from booking.com, I called the hotel and requested they make airport pick arrangements for me and this was perfectly done. I got to the guest house and like most reviewers said the place is nice and clean with a unique African decor. My daughter and I tried their grilled fish and Chicken Yassa and... More

Got to the hotel in the evening, completely exhausted after a long flight. Coming form the airport and off the main road into a rusty road, and I go like, really???. Where is this I've been booked? But to my surprise the staff were very friendly and the room I got was the biggest (so I was told) and very... More

I stayed at the Hotel du Phare in spring 2012. It was charming with a cool kitschy interior, charming helpful staff, and decent affordable food. I would have given it 4 stars with a high recommendation for the great rapport between price/quality. However this year things had drastically changed. We were unable to eat lunch 2 days as the electricity... More

My husband and I began our journey into Senegal in Dakar and found Hotel du Phare for our first night. We arrrived late, around 11:30 or 12 midnight and were greeting by kind staff who were ready to accomodate us. The rooms are small and quaint but felt very cozy. We crashed the first night before deciding how we would... More

Clean, simple rooms. Helpful staff. Lovely little courtyard bar. Quiet neighbourhood. Close to airport and not far from Dakar proper.

I have been to Dakar several times and he Hotel du Phare is the best hotel i've stayed at. Very clean, comfortable and big rooms and extremely helpful staff. Plus it is very well located, in a calm area not far from the airport, the restaurants/bars area and the city centre. Excellent value for the price. I am back to... More
