Respect! It's a lovely and special place, every corner has it's own story. Simone (the owner of this hotel) is very nice, she spent hours explaining the history of this place. I recommend this hotel for every person who loves ART! It's a unique masterpiece!

I was delighted by the location and people I met there. Excellent hotel to relax and have a good meal. The view is extraordinary. A friend of mine took at least one hundred picture in front of the hotel ! There is a touch of fine art everywhere you are in the hotel. Very nice place to be in Dakar.

I had the opportunity to stay at the Sokhamon Hotel while on business trip in Dakar Senegal. As a business traveller I usually stay in your typical 4 stars hotel but most of the business hotels in Dakar are in the inner city with no view nor access to the beach. I decided to take a chance on a "boutique"... More

My first time in Dakar and I landed perhaps one of the best places in town. Although Hotel Sokhamon is not exactly near the new commercial area of Dakar it’s close enough by taxi ±10 mins. The hotel is in a residential area and on the sea cliffs overlooking the sea. The hotel has some classic furniture and it looks... More

I spent a month at Sokhamon and thoroughly enjoyed it. The place is a work of art, designed by the owner herself. Really interesting. You can dine and have drinks with a great ocean view. It is located right next to downtown but is quiet and peaceful. There are yoga classes a couple of nights a week and also salsa... More

My husband and myself had a very good experience at the hotel. The staff was very friendly and although the whole hotel is very particular we found it interesting. The rooms are fine and the sea view is superb. The food had too little choices but was good and well served. Breakfast has a good variety of foods. We would... More

Dining on the terrace, with the wind blowing in our hair, is quite a delight after a day of walking in heat and humidity. Food is adequate but the chocolate cream is amazing, so rich and dark and tasty. Staff is eager to assist. This morning they obtained a guide for us who took us around the city and Gorey... More

I stayed at the Sokhamon for slightly over a month on business in Dakar, along with a few colleagues. While at first I found the hotel a bit weird ('quirky' gone wrong), the place really did grow on me. If you're looking for something that is entirely NOT a typical western business hotel (e.g., Radisson Blu), this is the place... More

With our family we stayed 3 nights and we were very happy here. We had spacious clean rooms with magnificent ocean view and panorama on Island Madeleine... The staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was more than correct! The panoramic open bar area is a pleasant place to drink the apero late afternoon before dinner. The magnificent sunset you... More

Sokhamon means "if you only knew" from the outside it might look strange, but once you go down al the stairs and you see the magnificent view, you understand why it's called Sokhamon. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was simple but very fresh with warm croissants and fresh fruits and good coffee. The rooms were not... More
