“Would happily return”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2013

The service was superb. Owners and staff, including drivers, were very helpful. The location is very good and the furnishings excellent. The swimming pool and the large public areas were a real plus. Rooftop meals were excellent. I would have no hesitation in recommending La Demeure to my friends.

Room Tip: All rooms seemed equally good.

Very few of the local taxis will know where this place is, being tucked away off the main strip in Almaladies. Once you find it you will not be disappointed. It is a quiet and stylish escape and only a few minutes walk to the hustle and bustle.
Rooms are nice, roof bar is very civilized and the tiny pool an oasis to hide away with a good book.

Stayed here for a week. Stuff were friendly, breakfast was good.
There are a lot of dogs in the area so would be regularly woken by barking and fighting.
Only downside is it is very close to the mosque which is being built so be prepared for very early mornings.

un grand merci pour les compliments et désolé si vous avez été reveillée par des chiens errants nous sommes en afrique et helas il y a des chiens sauvages. cela dit les chiens errants sont assez rares dans le quartier. En ce qui concerne la mosquée qui se construit tout près il s agit de ce qu on appelle ici une mosquée d honneur qui est spécialement prévue pour les grandes fetes religieuses et pour la prière du vendredi il n y a donc jamais d appel quotidien à la prière ni le matin ni le soir.
encore merci

I stayed at La Demeure twice during July 2013. What an absolute pleasure. They were both times on the spot to fetch me from the airport. The staff were very friendly and helpful. the rooms are lovely and spacious. I enjoyed every minute of my stay. In the future, this is where I will stay when I am in Dakar.

I was traveling to Senegal with an NGO for the groundbreaking of a school some 4-5 hours from Dakar. We found this hotel through the recommendations on TripAdvisor and have to say, it was terrific. 3 of us shared a suite - -our 2 "musts" were air conditioning and WiFi. We stayed 2 nights at the front and back end of our trip - -first night the air conditioning was not great but okay in my room but great elsewhere in the suite. I didn't complain about it. The 2nd (and last) night the air conditioning was great. WiFi worked best on the rooftop by the bar (which by the way was awesome too - -great place to relax and catch up with Words with Friends!). And the breakfast was a bargain!!! Delicious and only cost a few dollars. No complaints though and I would stay there again in a heart beat. R.H.

This BnB was incredibly clean and welcoming. I was very pleased with the pool and rooftop restaurant. It was nice to be in an atmosphere where everyone felt so relaxed. The food was fantastic [thank you Mami] and my room was always cleaned so well [thank you Jean]. Fanta is a wonderful hostess and I highly recommend La Demeure to anyone who needs a break from the hustle and bustle of busy Dakar.

Room Tip: I stayed in Saint Louis and was quite pleased, but I think the other rooms may be larger. YOu will g...

The service at La Demeure, and the rooms were excellent. The roof terrace was a real treat, and the honesty bar is a nice touch. There's a lovely room of 'objets' for sale, the staff are super friendly and the breakfast was delicious. There are LOTS of mosquitoes, but the rooms come with mosquito nets and room spray. Very convenient for the airport, Almadies, the surf beaches.

Room Tip: I suspect the ground floor rooms have worse mozzies than the rooms higher up.
