The staff here at Novotel Dakar are very switched on. Nothing seems to be too much: always ready to allocate you another room when not pleased, without a fuss. Would like to give a special mention to Safiétou at the checkout desk. Breakfast is superb, with a good selection of patisserie, fruit salad, cooked breakfast. The Supervisory Team are very alert and at the ready to help during breakfast. There is a particular lady who brought my son a cafetière of Kenkeliba, when requested, again without hesitation. No wonder breakfast at Novotel Dakar is very popular.

i have always enjoyed my stay at Novotel so my rating of stay is a good service by the various departments of the hotel. my only concern has to do with occasions when there was a party that went beyond 1am that make sleeping a bit difficult. other than that i would stay my stay was very good by all standards.

Nice patio and swimming pool but rooms very disappointing. Hardly a window (mine was so dirty, one could barely see through it), spartiate furniture. Malfunctioning air-conditioning. Middle range group tourism destination, with late night live music, etc. Made the big mistake to stay there as a business traveller and really should have chosen the Pullman instead, only marginally more expensive but infinitely nicer. Breakfast very average. Positioning of this hotel quite unclear. It may not be that old but seems neglected and calls for a serious refurb. Right next to an Ibis on same location.

Overall, i had a very good experience with Novotel. The room was spacious and always clean. The staff are all great! Front desk staff - Lessong mbodji- is extremely pleasant, helpful and will go above and beyond to make your stay comfortable. @Novotel management, Lessong should get an award.
