“Good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

Ibis hotel is Ibis hotel wherever you are.
Not fantastic, but clean, eficient and not as much expensive as others in the same range.
This hotel is expensive, because all Dakar hotels are expensive. But, comparing to others, Ibis is a good deal.
It is recent, it is clean, it as a (common with Novotel) nice swimming-pool, rooms are on the small side but they are ok, staff is very friendly, breakfast is very decent.
It is in a waking distance from Independence Square, downtown and there are taxis everywhere (be prepared to bargain a lot,otherwhise they will rip you off).

Just built, new clean but basic. The advantage is that it shares all the facilities of the Novotel which is located literally next store. This is the budget hotel of the accord group but because it is new you don't feel like you are scrimping but at the time far from a 4 star hotel. Ideally located for the business traveller.

We stayed here for the first few days of our holiday in Senegal. The hotel is comfortable, extremely clean and provides everything you need as a base to explore Dakar. The staff are all friendly and helpful. The included breakfast is a plentiful buffet with lots of choice- something for everyone. The Novotel pool is luxurious and provides a lovely alternative to sightseeing in Dakar when you need it.

What a great hotel. Perfect for business travelers or anyone really. The service was exceptional. The rooms were tidy and had good wifi and the pool out back was lovely. It was also nice to be able to walk right to the center of town to be able to enjoy many of the great restaurants available in Dakar as well as the shops and markets.

Ibis hotel has been operating less than one year and is situated adjacent to a sister Accor property, Novotel. For unknown reasons, Ibis does not show up via Expedia and I only discovered it during a previous stay at the Novotel. Booking through the Accor online site I received a rate half that of the Novotel and decided to go for it. While waiting for my luggage I telephoned the hotel and they confirmed the shuttle was waiting outside. After a bit of confusion regarding whether the driver would collect me from inside or not, I made my way across the street, found the bus and was at the hotel in less than 20 minutes. Check in was easy, despite the fact that I arrived before lunchtime, and the staff was friendly and eager to be of assistance. The staff consistently speaks the best English of any of the hotels I’ve stayed in while visiting Dakar. The room is small, think European business hotel or Holiday Inn Express Light, but it is clean and comfortable and the bed especially so. Walk out the back terrace of the hotel and guests share the lovely Novotel pool. The pool / lawn / garden area is very enjoyable and a great way to spend the day unwinding after a long flight. The Novotel has an outdoor area with sofas and pergolas where guests can enjoy a light meal, a cool drink or just unwind with a novel. The Ibis has a 24 hour light menu and bar and the continental breakfast buffet is included in the room rate. The internet works well.

Room Tip: Be sure to get a room facing the sea and overlooking the pool.

The hotel is located central in the town and has a benefit of being next to novotel, where IBIS guest can take advantage of their restaurant, lounge, bar etc. IBIS at dakar stands to its name, is a perfect business hotel for the budget class business traveler. Enjoyed my stay of 3 days over here. staff was well mannered and friendly

Room Tip: all the rooms seemed good and nice to me

Brand new hotel, thrown up in a matter of weeks. I stayed at the Novotel next door in June and didn't notice construction - to be honest I didn't think there was space for it! Rooms are small but furniture is practical and well distributed. Aircon works and isn't too noisy. Wifi coverage great in the rooms - however internet access was intermittent. Breakfast very good. Bed was comfy and TV with channels in any number of languages. Best part is that it was less than half the price of the novotel and you have all the benefits - airport shuttle, pool, restaurants on the doorstep and less 'africa hassle' outside the front door. Staff smile sweetly - that's all I want. My key worked first time and I saw no sign whatsoever of 'prostitution au sein de l'hotel'. Highly recommended.
