This small, 29 room hotel has much to recommend it. The location is central. The restaurant, with a nice Mediterranean ambience and with live music on Thursday and Sunday nights, serves quite decent Lebanese and continental cuisine. The rooms are clean and well appointed; the cable is quite decent for francophones, but has only CNN for the rest of us.... More

A simple choise if you want to stay down town and close to the harbour, and not want to use too much money. Safe also for singel female travellers. Basic, but clean. Good kitchen. Service is slow and not very professional, but not unfriendly. Many good restaurants nearby. I have tried this several times, with and withour family, and feel... More

The expression 'damning by faint praise' comes to mind with this hotel! Yes it's less expensive than others, yes it's near the market and close enough to the centre, yes the WiFi works in your room, yes the restaurant serves reasonably priced food for dinner and has an edible breakfast, yes the staff speak sufficient english, yes the rooms are...

Quite a decent place and can lay claim to having one of the best restaurants in town too. Conveniently located and reasonably priced too. Rooms - neat and clean. friendly staff and multilingual too- english, spanish, French etc. Can organise for late night airport pick ups and other such arrangements.

We had an excellent time staying at the Hotel Farid. The staff were very friendly and could not have been more helpful. On arrival our experience of Dakar airport was so painless, contrary to expectations, I'm not sure whether arranging the hotel transit was strictly necessary but it certainly made things more straightforward. The hotel is well situated, has a... More

We stayed here three times last year, over a two week period. Excellent mid-class option. Lobby staff are really friendly and helpful. We initially arrived late in the night, like 3 or 4 a.m., without incident: after ringing a bell, someone opened the door and checked us in. Clean rooms, well organized, no complaints. On our last visit, they were... More
