This small hotel with only four rooms is surely the best spot to stay in Saint-Louis. Housed in an old building renovated with style, decorated with local artifacts, and filled with interesting books, Hotel Jamm provides a marvelous entry into Saint-Louis. The proprietor, Yves Lamour, speaks English as well as French, and can set you up with knowledgeable guides for whatever interests you: walking the city, birding in the national parks, even visiting local artisans. He also arranged for someone to take us from Dakar to Saint-Denis and four days later, to drive us back to Dakar. The food and company was so good at Jamm that we had breakfast and dinner with the proprietor and his lovely wife, Dior, all four days.
