“Good hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

This is the standard Ibis Hotel, such as you will find in France. Rooms are fairly small, but clean and comfortable, and the price is fair by Dakar standards (Dakar is an expensive city). The buffet breakfast is adequate, although staff were slow replenishing coffee and other items which ran out. For other meals, you have to go next door to the Novotel, which provides pretty average, and rather expensive, hotel food. The Ibis and the Novotel share a swimming pool, which is very pleasant and a nice place to cool off at the end of the day.

This is a great choice in Dakar. The hotel is next to the Novotel and they share some amenities such as the swimming pool, bars, etc. There is a taxi rank right outside the hotel gate as well as restaurants and you can walk to the ferry as well. The rooms are very clean, not luxurious, but have all the things you might want, tv, wifi, mini bar, toiletries, safe, etc. The front desk changed money and there is a small cafe and extensive hot/cold buffet breakfast. Other than breakfast, I didn't eat at the hotel, but found plenty of restaurants within walking distance. On my last night, having a beer poolside with the neon lighting on the palm trees and the full moon shining on the water....I didn't want to leave!

I don't want to say too much. SImply that Ibis Dakar is a very godd hotel with a correct cleanliness rooms. I was in a room that have a direct view to the sea, and i can tell you that i was simply great.
Moreover, since i was in a professionnal trip, i was easly able to work in a good confort with an easy internet access (high flow).
They bed can helps you rest so well and feel very good at your waking up.
The taxis given to me to drive me back to the airport was not so confortable as i would like (as the hotel for instance). For that i would suggest Ibis to have a better taxi services in order to make their guests feel kings from their arrival to their departure.
Ibis Dakar is a very good place, well located. You have to try it. The rooms fare are affordable.
I do like your hotel and for any of my work trip to dakar, i will choose Ibis (best price and high confort)
Thanks..

I stayed one night at the end of a business trip, because the other hotel had no availability on that particular night. It was half the price - and this was reflected in the overall space, budget toiletries etc. But the bed was very comfortable, there was satellite TV, a good shower, all very clean - and the breakfast was very good. Better than I had expected. My only gripe was that there were no tea/coffee making facilities, nor bottled water in the room. But for the price, it was much better value than where I had been staying. I'd happily stay again on a business trip.

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.
