“Diamond in the ruff. Loved it.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013 via mobile

Stayed here with wife and mother-n-law before and after a West African tour. This place far exceeded our expectations. We had the 2 bedroom suite on the rooftop. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. The owner Fanta made us feel like family. Thanks Able, Momi, and our personal driver Traore! Nice quite neighborhood. Several shops and restaurants within walking distance. They provide airport pickup. Highly recommended. They have a small shop onsite for gifts.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

Rooms were clean and comfortable, and the staff were very helpful. Breakfast was excellent, as was the view from the terrace. There were some issues - a/c worked intermittently through the night - but they were not too bad. The location is also a plus, being so close to the airport. Overall it was good for the price, would stay here again.

Our airport pickup arrived seriously late, exposing us to the masses in a new third-world country at midnight. We liked the room, especially sleeping under mosquito netting, and the small breakfast proved satisfying, if expensive. Dakar has far to go before before it's ready for prime time.

The service was superb. Owners and staff, including drivers, were very helpful. The location is very good and the furnishings excellent. The swimming pool and the large public areas were a real plus. Rooftop meals were excellent. I would have no hesitation in recommending La Demeure to my friends.

Room Tip: All rooms seemed equally good.

Very few of the local taxis will know where this place is, being tucked away off the main strip in Almaladies. Once you find it you will not be disappointed. It is a quiet and stylish escape and only a few minutes walk to the hustle and bustle.
Rooms are nice, roof bar is very civilized and the tiny pool an oasis to hide away with a good book.

Stayed here for a week. Stuff were friendly, breakfast was good.
There are a lot of dogs in the area so would be regularly woken by barking and fighting.
Only downside is it is very close to the mosque which is being built so be prepared for very early mornings.

FANTA T, Propriétaire at La Demeure, responded to this review, September 23, 2013
Google Translation
un grand merci pour les compliments et désolé si vous avez été reveillée par des chiens errants nous sommes en afrique et helas il y a des chiens sauvages. cela dit les chiens errants sont assez rares dans le quartier. En ce qui concerne la mosquée qui se construit tout près il s agit de ce qu on appelle ici une mosquée d honneur qui est spécialement prévue pour les grandes fetes religieuses et pour la prière du vendredi il n y a donc jamais d appel quotidien à la prière ni le matin ni le soir.
encore merci

I stayed at La Demeure twice during July 2013. What an absolute pleasure. They were both times on the spot to fetch me from the airport. The staff were very friendly and helpful. the rooms are lovely and spacious. I enjoyed every minute of my stay. In the future, this is where I will stay when I am in Dakar.
