Dakar doesn't have too many places you can visit for breakfast and on this Tuesday morning we'd decided to have a family breakfast out, sadly our first choice is closed on a Tuesday which was a shame, but then I remembered La Demeure, we climbed the stairs towards the roof terrace and had a nice view of the sea in...

This place is quiet and peaceful. It has a really beautiful view of the sea from the top floor which is a great place to relax in the evening. It also has a hidden pool that is very enjoyable for hot afternoons. It is near some food options but best not walked to alone in the evenings. Mostly a residential...

Three years ago I stayed at this small almost bed and breakfast-like hotel in Dakar. I was pleased back in 2013 (and wrote a review) and was equally pleased this second time around. This time I especially wanted to avoid more western style big chain type hotels given some of the incidents that have happened this past year in other...

I stayed here for a week in a room on the 1st floor. Previously in Dakar I had stayed at a hotel that was more expensive and not nearly as nice. The air conditioner does work very well here which definitely nice. The room I stayed in was spacious and had plenty of windows; however, I had a choice of...

La Demeure is located in a lovely, residential neighborhood, yet still convenient to the main road, restaurants and taxis. My husband and I stayed in the Laikipia room for close to 2 weeks while visiting our daughter who was studying in Dakar. The Laikipia room is wonderful. It is on the top floor of the hotel and equivalent to a...

Overall a good value, but just not great or special. Rooms feel claustrophobic with small, high windows, Pool is super small and no sun for much of the day, no room to sit near pool and watch your child swim. Limited presence of staff, almost feels like you're completely alone. Close to the airport but a bit of a distance...

I hesitate to order coffee as I keep getting burnt coffee, or too strong, or just not good enough to want me sit and enjoy the cup of coffee. Maybe it was the company I had, but the coffee, and food was very good. I've been trying to get over there again!!!

The place is very authentic, lovely and warm.. terrace was nice to stay at and open all day, breakfast was good but for dinner you have to inform them before 6 pm, all the team is very friendly and extremly helpful, specially the receptionist Dina.

This is a very nice place in Dakar. Staff is helpful and friendly !! It's located in a residential area which gave me the feeling of being home. They have a small pool in the garden and a great rooftop terrace where they serve breakfast, drinks and dinner (on request).

“Zanzibar (large space, one bed and one bathroom) and Laikipia (two bedroom apartment style) are the best rooms in the place in my opinion, but Laikipia has the added advantage of being like the penthouse suite with a kitchenette and spacious living room overlooking the ocean (and the roof deck right outside)”
