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.
