At a few minutes walk from "Place de l'Indépendance", and 10min walk from the Goree Island terminal, this small but decent hotel welcomes you at the very center of the Plateau neighbourhood. Clean rooms and bathrooms, treated against ants, air cond. and a small tv. Don't expect much from the "business center", though. Service ok, (the receptionist and guard were... More

Though the outside may be humble, hotel Farid is a great pick. It is within walking distance to almost everything and the staff is extremely helpful and honest. The restaurant next door had tasty food and was really convenient. The rooms are super basic but immaculate. There is 24/7 free access to the Internet, which saved us a ton in... More

This is a very decent hotel. The room was clean and, surprisingly, the shower had abundant hot water, The hotel restaurant is supposedly Lebanese, but it serves a bit of everything, from fajitas to cheeseburgers. It is a bit on the pricey side, and there are better restaurants for the money, apart from a very good place that serves traditional... More

To begin with, if you are considering Senegal and Dakar as a place to visit - do NOT go. Go to Kenya or Tansania, but not to Senegal. If you want to see mountains of trash, pollution, and human misery and suffering, Dakar and Senegal are the right place (no offense intended to those who live there). My wife and... More

I booked at Farid based on the positive reviews that i saw on this page. After two weeks there I highly recommend it. If you are using a Lonely Planet guide you will find that the Hotel Farid is in walking distance from quite a few points of interest (Sandaga Market, Marche Kermel, the boat to Goree Island, etc.) I'll...

Dakar's reputation goes before it. Booking an independent hotel was a risk that I took on the strength of previous reviews. They were right. The Farid's location does not initially inspire - on a busy narrow central Dakar street. But the room was spacious, well kept, with good quality air conditioning, TV and bathroom, and a recent renovation. The hotel... More

Stayed here for a week-long workshop in Dakar. I was really impressed with the cleanliness of the rooms - the sheets were washed every day. I arrived at 5 am and they gave me a room, even though check in wasn't until the afternoon. The internet in the superior rooms was excellent- even better than mine at home. The room... More
