The hotel is situated on the center of Dakar and this is basically all good I can say about it. The noise isolation is awful - you are waking up with the morning pray from the Muslim church. The furniture is quite old and there is a feeling that it is not very clean. You also need to ask for... More

I stayed two nights in this hotel recently and here are the highlights. -It is tastefully decorated. -The architecture is intriguing with zigzag corridors. The rooms either overlooked the central courtyard with the outdoor pool, or overlooked the streets. I got one overlooking the courtyard and was greeted at dawn with chirping of birds. -It was said to be famous... More

2nd time I stayed at this hotel. For the price (for Dakar) it's decent and centrally located. Walking distance to the ferries going to Ile de Goree. Had a big room and nice view from the 5th floor of the city with all its different sounds. A nice small pool, friendly staff and nice breakfast. Will also stay a 3rd... More

You will be paying for the central location rather than quality of rooms. Hotel Faidherbe is in the neighbourhood Plateau in the city of Dakar and should cost no more than 5000 CFA from the airport by Taxi (we paid 8000 CFA - and you will have to be a top haggler and stand your ground - and speak some...

This hotel is located in the very centre which can be a boon (short distances to other places in the centre) or a disadvantage (traffic). The inside of the building is considerably better than the street-facing facade, and the garden with its pool is an oasis of tranquility and really lovely. The rooms are clean but a bit dated, that... More

The review says average but what I meant is good, too bad that option isn't available. This is a nice little hotel near a bustling local market and the port. The area may seem to be a bit rough in appearance to people who haven't traveled extensively in Africa so first timers might feel a bit intimidated. They have a... More

This is a very good hotel with very nice staff except for one barmaid by the name of "Angelique". For this woman the customers are a nuisance and treats them in a very discourteous manner.
