Spent just a night here while in Dakar for business. The room was a tad smaller than I would expect for the price being paid. The wifi internet was good and the bathroom towels and beddings were clean. The room itself was on the small side and may be just right for a single occupancy and I found the design of separate rooms for toilet and bathroom a bit strange. Breakfast was just ok.

Went here for a conference - the hotel is clean, the restaurant has a good selection of local and western dishes, and the wifi signal is strong and free! Amenities are standard Novotel, and the bed is comfortable. Laundry service is available in same day or next day format. The pool is also very nice. There is a shuttle from the airport - BUT, if your flight comes in late(after 10:30pm) arrange something or you will have to take a taxi and negotiate a price.

Also, in walking distance from the hotel: a Casino supermarket(French chain) about 5 min away.

If you have time to go out, you can walk out from the hotel from the back and turn right - keep walking for about 10 min and they have some great local vendors selling nice baskets, and other locally made items(and they take euros, dollars and CFA-or in my case a mix of the three!) You can pack up big baskets at the airport in plastic for 4USD. Most people wrap their luggage as well for peace of mind.

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.
