Stayed at this hotel in Feb 2007, but felt compelled to write a review in Feb 2008 when reading other reviews for the Oceanic (in preparation for another trip to Dakar). I would not recommend this hotel to other travelers, unless you have absolutely no choice! The room was not very clean (I ended up sleeping in my clothes because I didn't want to sleep on the sheets). There was a mildew smell and everything seemed a little damp. The worst part was that I'm almost positive that the place was being used as a brothel because I kept seeing women coming and going. The tell-tale sign, however, was the man with the gold chains, gold rings, and lots of money, who seemed to know all of the women. I guess this will teach me to always by the updated version of "Lonely Planet" instead of using older versions (which said this was a clean, cheap place to stay).
