The young women who run this place create a truly lovely friendly place to stay. Would be great for single traveler. Food is slightly overpriced, but delicious. Very clean. Only complaint would be that the driver attached to the hotel is a jerk. He didn't turn up in the morning to meet our flight as promised and that's a big deal because Dakar airport is NOT for the faint of heart. Every taxi will take you to town for 2000 except the hotel's drive, who acts insulted when you offer that price. In a city full of lovely personalities they need to find a new driver. But I've gone on too much about that one negative, when the hotel is really wonderful and well worth staying in. Try their monkfish cassoulet (better yet, share it with someone cause the servings are huge). Ask Gilberte, a delightful young woman who works as a waitress here to take you on a guided tour of the city. She represents everything that makes African women great. You'll love her.
