Good hotel with easy checkin/out, helpful staff, comfy lobby + bar area for meetings friends/colleagues. Room was pretty small and old furnishings--- towels+sheets were very old. Nice view from smallish window 1 m long to see the gorgeous ocean. Good breakfast buffet included in my room price. Wifi was free-- really nice option, although sometimes pretty slow in evenings. The outside terrace and pool area are beautiful---and nice place for drinks/snacks. You can go out the back gate to walk to the beach and/or great restaurant Lagoon--- but don't walk alone on that road, as it's very dangerous, esp at night. Overall---good business hotel for short stays. Kudos especially to the staff--- they're top notch on service and friendliness.

Room Tip: ask for room facing ocean--- -such a beautiful view

Dear Guest

thank you for your positives comments.
concerning the towels, we made a full inventory and changed the needed ones.
about the walk in front of the sea, Dakar is globaly a secured city, but it is always good to be carefull.

Waiting to have the pleasure to welcome you again.

best regards
Thomas

A good business class hotel. Very convenient location. As I had to visit port it was very close to same. Breakfast buffet was sumptuous. Average room size, ok for single person. If travelling with family or as a couple, room may be a bit cramped.

Room Tip: Specify it during reservation, if looking for smoking room.

Good hotel staff. Clean room. Something was broken in my room and they repair immediately.
This hotel is well recommeded and great place to stay.

Room Tip: The building have 10 stories and if you want a nice and quiet room take one from 7th floor or higher. East side have ocean view and west have city view.

Although the rooms are small but they are clean and well maintained with all the basic amenities provided in the room. The only trouble was the check-in. The people at the check-in are very slow to complete the check-in process and allot the rooms. Rest everything is perfect from the rooms tot the staff to the breakfast. Breakfast has ample of dishes to offer both for vegetarians and non-vegetarians. Food is good as well and it does have a lounge kind of sitting area where you can have business meeting. Business people are very much aware of the Hotel Novotel but they don't know Ibis which is adjacent to this in the same compound.

I would suggest to stay in this hotel for business traveler only instead in case of holidaying.

This is a Sofitel, but you're in Dakar. Not Paris.

Taken that, this is a great place to stay. The pool rocks, the food is decent, and the staff is ok. The staff also helped with a car service, which was a huge boon to our work. Just make sure you either arrive early or bring a PRINTED reservation confirmation with you.
