“reasonable, average, normal”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2014

Food was very expensive. Services were regular too bad… Rooms are normal size and they were basically cleaned.
Basically too much "normal", nice stay but overrated for sure. If they don’t reduce price, i will not return.

Room Tip: nothing special to say (thats not good in my opinion)

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2014

The Novotel offers a good location in the city center, comfortable rooms with nothing outstanding but also nothing very bad. The view on the see is pleasant.
The restaurant was acceptable. The swimming pool area was nice a night.

This is a fine hotel for a night or two, with a nice view of the water and a decent pool area. The rooms are small and clean, but nothing great. The restaurant serves a good breakfast, with a fair number of choices. Overall this a utilitarian hotel that works fine for business travel or a brief stay.

The hotel is ok, but basic.
The rooms look like a French camping from the 1970s, not attractive.
The breakfast is very basic, and serve canned pineapple, while fresh pineapple is almost for free in Senegal :-(

I try to stay at an Accor chain hotel wherever I go so Novotel Dakar is like home coming away from home.

This hotel is a no brainer: if you go elsewhere you are wasting precious time and money.

Together with the Novotel Cotonou and Pullmann Lomé the Novotel Dakar is in my top 3!

Tip: Ask Pape Biramé for a ocean view room, he will do everything possible to help you with a constant smile and have a coffee at the bar with Mr. Meissa or colleagues Dado or Marie for an excellent service and some great tips about the city!
