My husband and I stayed with Sineta (owner) in Dakar back in November 2011. I start this review of SenegalStyle B&B this way because being there felt like visiting an old friend after all the communications prior to our arrival. Everything was just as advertised and more. Airport pickup, meals, sightseeing tours, Ali, Pape, Bada (guides) were all a pleasure and memorable. This is not a five star hotel, but a clean, cozy, well run bed and breakfast, with an energetic hostess who shares her inside knowledge about Senegal and Gambia. It is located in a neighborhood so you see everyday life of the people. People-watching from her ground floor window was one of my favorite and relaxing things to do. Great views from the roof of the building as well. I HIGHLY recommend SenegalStyle, especially if this is your first trip to Dakar and would like some personal attention with reasonable rates. I would definetly return, for Sineta's cooking and to visit my "old friend".
