I am on a business trip and found this nice little hotel in front of the UN offices. Friendly staff, very helpful although all is very minimal. Internet is working well and fast. Overall a very good price quality offer.

I was in Dakar during a period when there were several conferences ongoing. All hotels were fully booked. I went from hotel to hotel looking for a room and came to The Lodge. Excellent location, on the main road to several other hotels and UN offices. The staff received me with highest professionalism and compassion to my situation. They managed to rearrange a few things and offer me a room. The room is very good, clean, very comfortable bed, super fast Wi FI, and clean bathroom with hot water at all times. Great breakfast and beautifully decorated restaurant. Only one down side: No English language channels on the TV except for CNN. I would Highly recommend the hotel.

I stayed here one night as they only had availability for one and most of the hotels near my work were booked. I was more than pleasantly surprised. The staff was friendly though I arrived quite late, the room was clean, and they even provided an airport pick up. The price is well worth it for Dakar for what you get.

Very basic rooms. Hard/thin mattresses. TV had a problem. "The kitchen staff went on leave for 1 month", so no restaurant, no food room service, poor breakfast. But wifi was good (maybe because the hotel was quasi empty)

This is, not my first visit to Dakar nor to the Lodge des Almadies. The room was large and comfortable. It had a Flat TV, a desk and a small refrigerator. It has free Wi-Fi which was excellent for the first week but terrible in the second. I had to get a dongle from Orange to access the internet and be able to do my work and access servers overseas. That was mentioned to the reception staff but nothing was done about it. I was not downloading video/film or the like either!! One aspect that I did not appreciate was that my balcony's door was unsecured. Although, the area is reasonably safe, being unable to lock you balcony doors is not good! Having said that the management appeared to have installed additional sliding balcony doors. Considering that my room was facing the main street, it helps to reduce the traffic noise and was appreciated. Room cleaning was done every day, albeit quite late in the afternoon. One would think that the staff would try to do all room cleaning in the morning knowing that the guest could return for lunch and do some work. You may want to make sure you bring your own shampoo and conditioner and a well as a soap because the shower has an all-purpose body/shampoo/conditioner container. Call me old fashion but I can't see this being fit for purpose and a cheap attempt at saving money. I had one instance of bed bugs. As soon as I reported it, the management took swift action and removed all beddings etc... and sprayed the room. That fixed the problem straight away. The restaurant was in the other building and provided some good lunches. The breakfast, on the other hand, does not commensurate with the price charged. It was cheap and nasty. Fortunately, you have a nearby coffee shop with decent coffee and croissants etc... And the local lady supervising the breakfast needs an attitude check when being bossy bordering on being rude. I had some laundry done with mixed results. Brand new white cotton singlet returned "grey" obviously washed with coloured garments. All in all, my stay was ok only spoiled by some basic details.
