This is a very nice place, not cheap for Dakar standards, but in an "upmarket" area which partially explains this. Stayed in Djakharta suite, separate bedroom for the parents, two beds for children. Breakfast is excellent and served in rooftop terrace. There are different 'living' rooms in the building where you can also sit / relax / read if this...

The hotel location is decent - the terrasse on the top has a lovely view and is done very nice (although pretty much windy in February for taking breakfast there every morning with small kids). We expected to get two sleeping rooms and a small living room. In the end the casablanca "suite" turned out to have one nice sleeping...

This place is great for brunch in the sun on a nice little cosy rooftop terrasse. The food is ok, it's more a matter of the ambiance and also there is not much choice for breakfast in Dakar. The only really bad thing about this place is that you eat on the rooftop (3 stories up) and the bathroom is...

I stayed for a night rather than the planned 3 nights through no fault of the hotel. The decor of the hotel is gorgeous - loads of statement pieces and artwork. We stayed in a suite which was lovely, quaint and had a real romantic feel. As others have said breakfast is huge and filling.

Dakar doesn't have too many places you can visit for breakfast and on this Tuesday morning we'd decided to have a family breakfast out, sadly our first choice is closed on a Tuesday which was a shame, but then I remembered La Demeure, we climbed the stairs towards the roof terrace and had a nice view of the sea in...

This place is quiet and peaceful. It has a really beautiful view of the sea from the top floor which is a great place to relax in the evening. It also has a hidden pool that is very enjoyable for hot afternoons. It is near some food options but best not walked to alone in the evenings. Mostly a residential...

Three years ago I stayed at this small almost bed and breakfast-like hotel in Dakar. I was pleased back in 2013 (and wrote a review) and was equally pleased this second time around. This time I especially wanted to avoid more western style big chain type hotels given some of the incidents that have happened this past year in other...

I stayed here for a week in a room on the 1st floor. Previously in Dakar I had stayed at a hotel that was more expensive and not nearly as nice. The air conditioner does work very well here which definitely nice. The room I stayed in was spacious and had plenty of windows; however, I had a choice of...

“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)”
