La Demeure is located in a lovely, residential neighborhood, yet still convenient to the main road, restaurants and taxis. My husband and I stayed in the Laikipia room for close to 2 weeks while visiting our daughter who was studying in Dakar. The Laikipia room is wonderful. It is on the top floor of the hotel and equivalent to a...

Overall a good value, but just not great or special. Rooms feel claustrophobic with small, high windows, Pool is super small and no sun for much of the day, no room to sit near pool and watch your child swim. Limited presence of staff, almost feels like you're completely alone. Close to the airport but a bit of a distance...

I hesitate to order coffee as I keep getting burnt coffee, or too strong, or just not good enough to want me sit and enjoy the cup of coffee. Maybe it was the company I had, but the coffee, and food was very good. I've been trying to get over there again!!!

The place is very authentic, lovely and warm.. terrace was nice to stay at and open all day, breakfast was good but for dinner you have to inform them before 6 pm, all the team is very friendly and extremly helpful, specially the receptionist Dina. I really recommend it and will come again for sure .

This is a very nice place in Dakar. Staff is helpful and friendly !! It's located in a residential area which gave me the feeling of being home. They have a small pool in the garden and a great rooftop terrace where they serve breakfast, drinks and dinner (on request).

I stayed here for one night....had the feel of a B+B as I arrived on Sunday and there was only the caretaker around. Drinks were on an honesty basis from a communal fridge! The room was fine, good air conditioning and quiet...but hardly luxurious!. Best part was breakfast on the roof top terrace...once i found out where to go!

We stayed in the suite on the top floor with two bedrooms, a kitchenette and living room. It was lovely! There is a beautiful rooftop area to have breakfast, a sunset beer or lounge and read one of the many magazines and books. There are wonderful touches of art everywhere. The breakfast is large and delicious with excellent coffee. The...

Rooms are very comfortable and spacious, the AC is efficient and quite (hard to find in Dakar). Breakfast is fantastic although you ll have to skip the lunch because portions are big...

I stayed 4 nights at la Demeure and would recommend it to anyone traveling to Dakar. First, it is ideally located, a few minute drive away from the airport (the staff arranged airport pickup for me, which was very handy). It is also in a quiet neighbourhood, nevertheless very close to many bars and restaurants on the waterfront. Second, it...

The main reason I decided to stay at this small hotel was the advertised proximity to a beach. The website says one can walk to the beach. I love to swim and wanted to walk to the beach. Well guess what? The beach is now closed, it is a place of prayer. The other aspects of this hotel are still...

“Zanzibar (large space, one bed and one bathroom) and Laikipia (two bedroom apartment style) are the best rooms in the place in my opinion, but Laikipia has the added advantage of being like the penthouse suite with a kitchenette and spacious living room overlooking the ocean (and the roof deck right outside)”
