“Great rooftop restaurant”
Reviewed December 30, 2013 via mobile

Le Djoloff is always a great place to go for a sunset and tapas. One has to go with a sense of adventure though as this is Africa and the unexpected can be expected. The bar was out of lemon juice which meant that all but one cocktail were no available. A new building now partially blocks the view on the sea, but the tapas is still the best in town. The decoration isnice and service good, so it's a good place to go.

Stayed December 2013, traveled with friends

Wonderful, well done boutique style hotel in Dakar. The rooms are simple, but done in a very artful way. The rooftop is the gem with a great breakfast/dinner/bar area for enjoying the views and just hanging out. Stayed here for four nights for a conference and it was well worth it.

Room Tip: May want to avoid street side rooms on main road.

What marks this hotel out is the staff. They are very efficient and friendly. The terrace is also great for all meals and is very relaxing after a day in Dakar (especially the markets). The rooms are fine. Bathrooms are small and there seems to be a problem with the drains at times, but again mention it to reception and they swing into action to sort it out. For business customers the conference room is pleaseant and well equipped and has a/c. Free wifi in all the rooms is also a plus.

Room Tip: There are interior rooms which have the advantage of sound insualation from the dawn call to prayer...

Found this hotel on TripAdvisor and the reviews are right on. Staff was very helpful, not only with reservation but also with arranging car service for pickup at the airport. The rooms are clean and nicely furnished. It is located in a quiet neighborhood, but a taxi stand is right outside the hotel, so that downtown and most other destinations in Dakar are a short taxi ride away. Highly recommended.

Stayed September 2013, traveled as a couple

A very friendly, efficient and beautiful hotel - in a great location- and there is a patisserie just down the road - easy to get to the airport, markets and generally out and about. Overall, it is the staff that make the experience so positive and the interesting décor and furniture inside.

Room Tip: ask for a room with a balcony - I was in room 7 - perfect

The Djoloff provided an excellent experience for my week in Dakar. The staff are amazing and exude 'teranga' that the Senegalese are known for. It's a comfortable, cozy place well positioned near UCAD and the corniche in Fann-Hock. The rooftop bar, la Terrasse, is a lovely spot for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or drinks anytime. Thanks to the entire staff for a memorable and enjoyable stay.

Room Tip: A balcony room is suggested. Some inside-facing rooms can be dark.
