I have stayed at Fana Hotel several times. Every room has been clean and comfortable and staff is always responsive to my needs. The pool and bar area is an added bonus, but I would stay here even without it. The price for the area is also exceptional. It is well located close to the corniche des almadies and plenty of bars and restaurants in the area.

Spent 5 nights at Fana Hotel while attending a conference. Good communication following booking and they arranged a driver to collect me at the airport who was waiting when I arrived. The hotel is nicely laid out with areas to sit. WiFi was generally good although signal fluctuated a bit. The gardens are nice although the pool was empty due to some maintenance. Nice bar / restaurant area. Breakfast is charged as extra but is good with plenty of choice - coffee, tea, juices, pastries, bread, fruit and eggs cooked to order. Ordered dinner and the food was good and meal very large. All staff were friendly and helpful. Good location for the conference I was attending at King Fahd Hotel as I could walk in 15 minutes. There is a convenience store and other restaurants nearby. Taxis available outside the hotel. All in all, very happy with my stay here.

The main part of the hotel is pleasant with a little pool set within a garden and the bar and dining area. But some parts of the hotel are too dilapidated and just a mess, or under reconstruction and repair. The part where our first room was situated felt more like a hangar than a hotel and the room to my horror had no openable windows. We changed rooms to one overlooking the garden. But my original choice of accommodation was unclear from the Booking.com website and the photos didn't match what we were shown. As a result I felt considerably overcharged but didn't feel up to the whole issue of explaining and renegotiation due to circumstances at that moment. The staff were generally pleasant but the place was overpriced for what was on offer.

I went for this hotel to save a some money on my trip, I am self employed. First appearances aren't great, I arrived late, it's down a dusty side road. Reception is dark and not very appealing. The hotel is tired and needs investment. Putting that aside, I LOVED my stay here. All of the staff are so friendly and helpful. Even the night porters are helpful and friendly. Importantly...best wifi in Dakar and friendliest place to stay . The food is affordable and nicely cooked and fresh. The bar and small pool are really cool places to chill out and relax. Clean and quirky. I have stayed in four much more expensive hotels in Dakar but this is the one I would return to. The hotel is very convenient for the Almadies strip but the longer I stayed the less I went out. The place has a really welcoming and has a laid back feel about it that works. I would rather stay here than the more expensive hotels close by. Nice place and great ambience guys. Thanks for your hospitality.
