I have been to many hotels in Dakar. Also I have been to many hotels in the United States and France. This has to be in my top 2 favorite hotels of all of them! Sincerely, the place is so unique and cozy. It is really close to the airport and away from all of the noise (yet just enough...

First time in Dakar and was impressed by our stay at La Demeure. It was cosy, felt safe, was relaxing and gave sense of freedom and more like being at home than in larger hotels that can tend to feel sterile, which is fine in some circumstances - but La Demeure worked best for this stage of the trip. Particularly...

Fantastic location (5 min from the airport and a couple of blocks from the beach). Almadies is one of the nicest/safest areas of Dakar. Nobody harasses you in the daytime or night time. As pointed out by many reviewers, there are a number of great restaurants only a few blocks away. Kudos to Dina (receptionist/caretaker) who helped me solve any...

On the surface, La Demeure is one of the cosiest hotels I've ever visited. Lots of lounge areas where you can chill in comfortable chairs. Rooftop terrace. Pool. You name it. DAY ONE We arrived after 6 o'clock p.m. Reception closed, no one to ask how things work here. No wifi. Not possible to use all the nice lounge areas...

I stayed here for an extended time while apartment hunting- it was a very welcome change after staying at the King Fahd as the rooms are nicer, more comfortable, and there is more room to move around the space with common areas, kitchens, and extremely friendly staff. Fanta, the owner, has excellent taste and the whole place has stylish decor....

As others have mentioned, this is a lovely guesthouse in an excellent location (Almadies). It is within walking distance of several good restaurants, and is in a very safe community. (An excellent supermarket is a 10 minute walk.) The rooftop breakfast area is a nice place to relax. The pool is quite small (but I'm not a pool person!) The...

I stayed at this hotel with my wife and daughter who is working in Senegal as Peace Corps Volunteer. We were upgraded to the spacious Zanzibar Suite at no extra cost. The hotel is very intimate, having only 7 rooms. There are many sitting rooms and a large kitchen available to guests. The roof garden was delightful had a fully...

This guest house was FANTASTIC! A very inviting place and the staff is so nice! Even though we missed our overnight, we had dinner and showered here, they were so nice to us, because our flight was very delayed, and we only had limited time, we were happy we had the pleasure of being there.

I stayed at La Demeure for six nights in March 2014 and enjoyed it immensely. It's a small, nattily-decorated hotel with a very kind and helpful staff. I stayed first in the Guekedou room for two nights, before moving to the two-bedroom apartment on the top floor. Guekedou was fine, though there were mosquitoes in the room every day, I...

“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)”
