“Not a bad hotel for the price.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2012

I stayed at this hotel on July 3,2012 at 11pm and I got a nice ocean front room basic room for 19,000cfa which is around $35 per night, the regular price for the basic room is 36,000cfa. which is $67 per night , which is still cheap. Its about a 4 star hotel. I live in the U.S. But I talked her down on the rate cause the hotel was very empty. The taxi rate was 1000, I have now learned how to negotiate like they do. lol. When they tell you a price, you say no, and give them your price, it they so no to your price, then act like you are walking away. Chances are they will say ok or tell you to come back. (If they really need the money). This works anywhere you go. I couldn't enjoy opening up my window to feel the ocean breeze because the mosquito"s rush in and will hide out in your room. Bring plenty of spray and tissue for the bathroom.

The hotel is very clean, the environment safe and conveniently close to the Airport for business travellers on transit.

When arriving in Dakar, it is often in the middle of the night. Even to the seasoned traveller, what awaits on the outside of the airport doors is not a pretty sight, especially at 4 am!

We have stayed a few times at Le Virage hotel -- a 2 min taxi ride from the airport.

The rooms are clean, the staff very friendly, the decor fine, it's close to the airport and has a fair price (vs. the "top" Dakar hotels).

Jad Chaoul, the director, is friendly and very helpful.

PLEASE remember that the REAL taxi fare from airport to the hotel should be about 1000 - 1500 cfa (we paid 3000 cfa just so we could get to bed! The driver wanted 7000 and we heard about a lady who was charged 20,000 cfa!! BE CAREFUL!).

Call or email the hotel to have them send you a taxi (speak with Jad).

I am happy to recommend Hotel Le Virage, even if it is just for the night you arrive.
