I spent here a couple of nights while I participate at a group tour starting from Dakar. The hotel is in the centre of Dakar and there is a restaurant where they serve also the breakfast. The hotel is not big and the service is quite good.

I only stayed in this hotel for a few hours after arriving from a flight in the late evening, and departing early the next morning. However, for a short stay the hotel for me was a good choice. The rooms overlooking an internal courtyard are quiet and in reasonable condition, with all amenities you would expect. I would request a room on the upper floor as the lower ones are probably dark, and room 15 is bigger than others in the hotel. Location is great in the centre of downtown. The only drawback is a rather poor breakfast. Overall, an acceptable choice for a short stay in Dakar.

The staff i really helpful in every way. They also speak english which for some of us make things easier. Brekfast is ok, with a little plus o the side. We stayed a fes days at the top terass and it was very nice. Everything is working good and its clean and ... good! The only ”problem” is a quite loud mosque close to the hotel. But you learn to cope with that too.
