I had been regular Business Traveler to Dakar - Senegal. One of the Hotel i used to stay regularly and do meetings was at Hotel Cafe du Rome. Stay experience was never value for money but i was preferring as it was near to my work meetings and was not sure about other nearby hotels. Been regular customer does not help as they dont value it as hotel feels they are always in demand so they take customer for granted. They have increased room rates which is not worth. also if you try to extend your stay by hour or two, reception will charge you for day. Today they lost regular customer.
This very centrally hotel is just perfect. With a 24/7 reception that is very helpful. Staff customer service oriented. Room new and spotless. Parking at the doorstep managed and guarded by hotel security. Good exchange rates. Very good WiFi. Excellent TV reception. Soundproof windows to keep noisy traffic out. A spacious balcony to watch bubbly life going by. Shops, restaurants and pharmacies at walking distance. A special thanks to security guard Simon for arranging the ataya and the taxi driver arranged by the reception that drove us back and forth to the consulate and embassy.
Location is perfect: near the Presidential Palace, the Place de l'Independance, the ferry to Goree Island and the Sandaga Market. The room is spacious, modern, comfortable with a balcony. The restaurant in the basement is perfect for breakfast, lunch and dinner, too.
I booked a room with a view on the main street (rue de la république) rather than an ordinary room and I was happy with my choice. There is 1 such room on each floor with an extra large balcony (room 21, 31, 41...) and the view on the street is nice with the 3 level's restaurant Caesar's in front, a school, and beautiful old trees. You can put armchairs and a table from the room and feel well connected with the pulse of the city. Of course, it can be noisy with the traffic, but the rooms are properly isolated when windows are closed. Worth paying a little extra for this room if you plan to stay some time at the hotel.
Important to note that most of the staff on duty were friendly and very helpful. Security is 100% professional. However: 1. Poor WifI: I was surprised to learn that wifi connectivity problems (causing me to miss a holiday dinner invite via WhatsApp!) were nothing new to the hotel staff. They said they've had many guest complaints about poor wifi - but apparently didn't fix it. 2. When other minor hotel problems added up to warrant a conversation with the hotel manager - he was nowhere to be found. Over three days, he wasn't there - and front desk staff said they had no contact information for him (he's new, they said). The second-in-charge was alerted, but didn't follow up. 3. Avoid the hotel restaurant waiter with heavy booze on his breath, as he wasn't sober enough to describe menu items and later, the wrong order came to my table. When I called him out for smelling like alcohol, I was surprised that other hotel staff were already aware the waiter had a liquor problem. Hey - I don't want anyone to lose their job - maybe consider putting the tipsy waiter in the kitchen or back office? 4. My reservation said a holiday "Gala Dinner" was included in the rate. There was no gala dinner. There wasn't even a regular dinner included for the price. Be sure to confirm. 5. At check-in, my room looked nothing like the photos on the website. However, when I went back downstairs to ask why - they moved me to one of the renovated rooms, with a nice view of the main street and all the action at "Ceasar's Restaurant" across the street. The hotel location is - perfect - and is very well secured. Housekeeping wonderful. Flexible checkout.…
