Go up the street and buy them cheaply at the super market and place them in your mini fridge. A cold one is essential in West Africa! The higher floors are... More

I was forced to take his 1/2star hotel since my agent couldn't find anything else. I was put off by the fact that the place smelled of urine and smoke. The checkin desk was completely covered in old sweat and sticky Attached some pictures of the room. If a hotel is clean, it is acceptable, but brown stains on white... More

I stayed there for the matter of hours, but I slept very well and I realized that the location is perfect, very near to Sandaga market and you can get everything cheaply from the shops around. The price was good as well, I believe.

We return to the Hotel Al Baraka every year. Why? Because the staff are very friendly and helpful and look after us so well. The rooms are of a good standard, the hotel is in a great central location, and the price is good value for a mid range hotel. You will struggle to find a better option in Dakar!
