You will be paying for the central location rather than quality of rooms. Hotel Faidherbe is in the neighbourhood Plateau in the city of Dakar and should cost no more than 5000 CFA from the airport by Taxi (we paid 8000 CFA - and you will have to be a top haggler and stand your ground - and speak some...

This hotel is located in the very centre which can be a boon (short distances to other places in the centre) or a disadvantage (traffic). The inside of the building is considerably better than the street-facing facade, and the garden with its pool is an oasis of tranquility and really lovely. The rooms are clean but a bit dated, that... More

The review says average but what I meant is good, too bad that option isn't available. This is a nice little hotel near a bustling local market and the port. The area may seem to be a bit rough in appearance to people who haven't traveled extensively in Africa so first timers might feel a bit intimidated. They have a... More

What I can say about this hotel is just this: a bad experience. The hotel is located in a popular area of ​​Dakar where it is dangerous go out not only during the night but also during the day. I was robbed of my mobile during the day in front of the hotel entrance. The hotel for the price that... More

This is a very good hotel with very nice staff except for one barmaid by the name of "Angelique". For this woman the customers are a nuisance and treats them in a very discourteous manner. I was residing in this hotel for nearly three months and I encountered several embarrasing experiences with this barmaid and on the last day of... More

Overall, The Faidherbe is a decent hotel in Dakar. The hotel is centrally located and offers very reasonable room rates. It's a 5 to 10 minute walk to get to the port and within walking distance to the markets. The rooms are basic but relatively clean and air conditioned. There is a pool behind the hotel on the fenced-in hotel... More
