8/10 Very good

First trip to Senegal
Generally the hotel was clean and well located. The rooms are a decent size and the pool is nice. The absence of a gym was a surprise and means I won’t return. The staff were also quite abrupt, almost rude. Breakfast is expensive.

10/10 Exceptional

The staff were so lovely and kind and friendly, nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were average but mostly clean and neat. The food was amazing and buying the breakfasts all in was the best decision we made. All in all this is a lovely little hotel which felt very safe and was comfortable, relaxed and friendly.

2/10 Poor

I am a fan of the Novotel at Suvarnabhumi airport in Bangkok so I had high hopes. This is among the most expensive hotels in Dakar yet the food service is cafeteria quality ..not up to restaurant standards ..and yet much more expensive than comparable hotels around Dakar. On arriving I was told my room included breakfast so I had the buffet. At checkout this was denied and they insisted I pay a very inflated price for the buffet I would not have taken if not for the statement of their employee. I complained vigorously but amazingly they would not own up to their own mistake. Do not waste you money at this old tired overpriced hotel with terrible service.

old port and beyond
There was a high level event in Dakar this week. Hotel was fully booked by very demanding guests, leaving early and coming back after 8pm. Hotel team was up to the situation and even organise fine music in bar at pool area. Kudos to them! I read complaints on forums, hotel is OK, maybe Dakar is not for you. Great metropolis in making.
