We stayed in this hotel for a few days. Rooms are basic, yet I found the atmosphere in the hotel very pleasant. Breakfast was good, and we enjoyed the outdoor bar in the evenings. For those of you that enjoy running: the hotel has a small exit in the garden that gives onto the Petite Corniche, which is a popular...

Just spent few days in this hotel and I really wonder how this can be part of Accor Group. First the reception is busy, very busy, out of 3 counters you can find 2 receptionists if you're lucky but most of the time, one only, making long queues for check in... Entering the room, carpet is from the 90's and...

I had the chance to stay at both the Novotel and Savana Jardin during the same week so I was able to do a head to head comparison. See my review of the savanna jardin for comments. In spite of the more updated rooms and better breakfast at the Novotel, I would stay again at the Savana Jardin because of...

There was no signage to the hotel and very difficult to find. The security were useless in the hotel. Prostitutes and their pimps frequented the hotel nightly and i was asked on two occasions for money for sex. Undesirables frequented the hotel offering tourist services and selling crap which was also ridiculous. I was harrassed every time i went down...

My customer reserved a room at the Novatel Hotel for 2 nights. Since I had been to this hotel a few years earlier, I was not concerned. My original stay was decent. I arrived in Dakar after traveling for 20 hours from the US. The driver picked me up at the airport and drove me directly to the hotel where...

Stayed for four nights. The hotel is basic but comfortable enough. The staff is pleasant enough but nothing out of the ordinary. Check-in was incredibly slow. Bed linens and towels are tired looking and feeling. The air condition in my room was a bit inconsistent. Nice view if you have a sea-view room. The swimming pool is nice but officially...

I have stayed in this hotel many times. the continuous upgrades to the restaurant, menu, new Tapas bar at the poolside made my stay very enjoyable. Service and welcome are very good. the rooms are a little tired and the carpet floor is dirty. overall a good mid range hotel.

Just what you would expect from a Novotel. Nice clean rooms, a good breakfast, lovely swimming pool and a great selection for breakfast. Also situated close to the sea, a short walk from the hotel to the shore and the Lagon restaurants. A very comfortable stay
