Stayed here for three nights at the end of May while attending a conference at another venue in the city. The rooms are tiny but clean and neat. Showers have a uniquely "open plan" style that I haven't seen anywhere else before. Food in the restaurant is good though the menu is rather limited. Accessibility to the airport is probably the motel's biggest positive.
Would stay here again for business but definitely not for leisure.

I was in Dakar for a short 3 day business trip. Onomo was recommended for its convenience in location and excellent service. On these two fronts it was not disappointing. Although it is worth noting that it is not the most easily accessible hotel by car. This may be because there was some road construction going on during my visit.

Anyhow, the rooms are compact and very detail oriented. The design is moder and green; with a fairly minimalist touch to it. For the price however, you wouldn't get such a quality room in Dakar. The balconies are nice; overlooking the garden atrium area and the food is quite nice and fairly priced; as are the drinks.

Overall, very clean, excellent service, and well priced. Conceptually and artistically, Onomo is a very interesting idea that was executed quite excellently. Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Rooms upstairs are quieter as the downstairs balconies overlook the courtyard area where people may...

Stayed here for two nights. Is a bit like an Ikea mini showroom, but is clean and comfortable. Convenient for airport, but not much else in the immediate area. Would use again, but only for business. Is not a holiday hotel. Note there is no pool.

Went to Dakar for a business trip. The local hosts recommended to stay at the Onomo as it is outside of the city, very well connected tobthe roads. The rooms are very simple and clean. The great surprise for me were the breads in the breakfast, the frenchinfluence left vast talent for bread and pastries in Senegal. fresh fish is very good too. It has free WiFi and it works quite well allover the hotel

After entering through a compact but function lobby and been checked in resonably efficiently it sort of went down hill when I had to walk down a poorly light passage which ahd all the ambience of a prison. My "cell" while small was clean and had all the necessities. Opening the curtains onto the nice courtyard garden improved the ambience considerably. Was only there one night so only slept in the hotel so can't comment on the service.
Put simply this is a great hotel if you are in transit (it is very close to the airport and has shuttle), are in Dakar for business preferably at the airport end of town. It is NOT a place to stay on holiday. It is very good value for money for Dakar

I spent there five nights. Part of a Russian delegation, we were very pleased to discover a clean room, a good service, a nice product. What was a nice surprise, even a manager speaking some Russian! Hope we will stay at same place in our next trip to Dakar.

Would be a good idea to develop the network. To be recommended.
