I stayed here for 2 nights at the beginning of my 2-week Senegal visit and one night the day before I left. The desk staff is friendly and helpful, the location fairly convenient (we walked to the Goree Island boat in 10 minutes), and it's close enough to restaurants, shopping, banks, etc. Their restaurant, across the street, is quite classy...

This small, 29 room hotel has much to recommend it. The location is central. The restaurant, with a nice Mediterranean ambience and with live music on Thursday and Sunday nights, serves quite decent Lebanese and continental cuisine. The rooms are clean and well appointed; the cable is quite decent for francophones, but has only CNN for the rest of us.... More

A simple choise if you want to stay down town and close to the harbour, and not want to use too much money. Safe also for singel female travellers. Basic, but clean. Good kitchen. Service is slow and not very professional, but not unfriendly. Many good restaurants nearby. I have tried this several times, with and withour family, and feel... More

We had an excellent time staying at the Hotel Farid. The staff were very friendly and could not have been more helpful. On arrival our experience of Dakar airport was so painless, contrary to expectations, I'm not sure whether arranging the hotel transit was strictly necessary but it certainly made things more straightforward. The hotel is well situated, has a... More
