I found the hotel to be really expensive for what it is. the room is not too bad although it could be much better cleaned (specially the bathroom looked a bit filthy). the room we were given was pretty noisy. the staff members were very pleasant and they helped us getting a good taxi deal to be driven to Mbour....

The restaurant saves the image of Farid Dakar. I found a pleasant atmosphere especially on the evening, a helpful and smiling team who placed this restaurant on top 5 Dakar places to visit. Cleanliness, simple and good food are the qualities that recommended this restaurant in Dakar. Small contributions on breakfast menu are welcomed. The hotel has a clean image... More

Very clean, hot water, modern and light room, reliable wifi. Decent price for Dakar. Did not have photocopier or printer we could use, something about it being a holiday. Front desk not particularly welcoming.

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...

The location is excellent, at a walking distance from Place de l'Independence and the main market in Dakar, very central; the rooms are nice and clean; the staff nice, kind and ready to help. But what is really great about this hotel is its restaurant. It is located just in face of... More

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
