Checkin in the 7th Feb 21. Was upgraded to a junior suite. Not a bad place to stay especially if you have a patient at the hospitals in the neighbourhood. Rooms need more cleaning and new towels is a must. Am sure the hotel is hit by the Covid 19 pandemic also. Everything else is perfect.

The Rysara Hotel is a delighful Oasis in a quiet neighborhood of Downtown Dakar (Plateau). The rooms are very comfortable, of good size, perfectly tidy, and very well furnished and maintained. The staff at front desk as well as the chamber maids are very friendly, professional, attentive and helpful. There is a restaurant with indoor and patio seating on site. Only disappointment was the breakfast, as there were not options. However, management promised an update of the breakfast concept and expansion of options, so this should already be in effect at the time of publishing this review. In summary, the Rysara is definitely a recommendable place for business and leisure travelers.

Not a very big hotel, but certainly worth considering. It has spacious rooms, everything seems clean and the hotel is located in a reasonably quiet area. You can lunch and dine in the hotel restaurant. Staff in the restaurant/breakfast area could do with a customer training. Some of them were not really friendly - it was as if they didn't like working there. Breakfast is very small. No buffet, no choice. Two slices of toasted bread, a croissant and two pieces of toasted baguettes, accompanied by some butter, a small quantity of jam (barely enough to spread the two slices of toasted bread) and a yoghurt. The room has a television, but with only 5 or 6 channels, almost all of them French spoken. (TF1, CNews, RTS...) No English spoken channels. Unfortunately, I had some issues with the airconditioning unit in the room. I could not operate it remotely. They said they would take alook at it when I mentioned it at the reception, but by the time I left, the problem was still not solved. No complimentary bottle of water in the room.

The rooms are spacious and the hotel is well lit, well located and overall more than adequate. It is not special though, the fittings in the room are odd in places. Just not finished properly. It is attention to detail, I had an already opened and used mini jam pot for breakfast, did not receive the right order when placed...I could go on but I felt the staff just need more training or closer management.

Lets start with the good, Hotel is is convieniently situated in the quiet part of Le Plateau, so you are mostly guarded from the hustle and bustle of the traffic that can get quite hectic, its not too far from the City Center, infact it should take you around 15 minutes if you are walking. Room prices are reasonable starting at 80 000franc. The Hotel itself only has 16 rooms, so over crowding is not a problem, the staff are extremely helpful even with the language barrier (Sarrifang and Jasmine tried their best to accommodate my specific technical requests) The owner Nabiel Dallank was also on hand and extremely helpful. On to the areas where i feel could use improvement, the breakfasts are small...bread rolls, some pastries and omlette on request. Their is no pool, no gym, limited tv bouquet. The internet could do with an upgrade, though wifi coverage is good in the hotel, when we were broadcasting we used all available bandwidth, making the experience for other guests less than satisfactory. Though not a fault of the hotel, there are limited resturants in the area, apart from the hotel kitchen (which is good) the only other place is the sushi joint around the corner. there's also a pizza place further towards the city if you feeling adventurous. I feel what made this stay a pleasure, was the staff at the hotel, thank you Rysara we will see you next time.
