“Charmless and Overpriced!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2010

Booked 3 nights based on a favorable review in Lonely Planet., but only stayed one night. We got the largest room, but it was devoid of furniture and completely lacking in charm--stained towels, bad mattress, no drinking glasses or soap. In the 24 hours we were there none of the staff had a smile or a kind word. I was delighted to find another hotel just down the beach (Cap Saint Louis) that was completely the opposite, and cheaper--we ended up staying 5 nights. Be aware that they tack on 4% if you pay your bill with a credit card.

Saint Louis, Hotel Mermoz ,April 17,18,19 2009
This hotel is located on the peninsula,about 2 to 3 kilometers from dowtown Saint-Louis and is much cleaner than the area in general ! It has a direct access to the sea and a nice swimming pool. The rooms are cool and clean .
You have to go across the fish market,besides the boats to access it so you do get a very strong local flavor every time go travel back and forth to the hotel.
It is far enough to the market to be quiet and very safe. There were many children and young people during our stay.
Breakfast is offered with fruit juices,eggs,cheese,croissants, pastries and good coffee .
Friendly atmosphere with good service.
