The Djoloff is a good base from which to explore Dakar. It is an excellent location near the ocean with amazing views from the roof-top terrace. My room was on the inside corridor and did not have an exterior window, which made it a bit darker than I would have liked during the daytime. Otherwise, the room was decorated in...

This is a wonderful place with a gorgeous view of the city and the ocean from the rooftop breakfast room. It's near the medina, and is both simple and stylish. It's a perfect introduction to Dakar and Senegal, with "terranga" very much in evidence. But most of all it feels very much a part of the country. While most of...

Pros: Nice simple rooms, friendly service, great location (1 street from la corniche, 45 minute walk from independence place), great ambiance on the terrace (restaurant), great value for money comparing to other hotels in Dakar. Wifi available everywhere, however (could be my phone) reception was definitely better on main floor, I couldn't get any in my room on 1st floor...

This stylish hotel has recently been expanded: ochre walls in traditional style, an exterior balcony with bougainvillea, an interior courtyard. All done with taste. The high point is the roof-top terrace, where breakfast is quite decent, and on can watch the sun rise over Dakar, enjoying a cool breeze. it's early January, and the golden globe appears at 7:40 a.m....

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Djoloff Hotel. I stayed there for 3 nights in October 2016, and I highly recommend it. I've traveled extensively in Africa and when you hear 'boutique hotel', it could go either way and in the case of the Djoloff, it was accurate and a total hit. The hotel is clean, quiet and safe...

I have stayed at a few (luxury) hotels in Dakar and can say without hesitation that this is my fave (boutique) place to stay and this is where I would stay the next time I come through. Great rooftop terrace views, evening cocktails, and charming little rooms.

I loved this hotel. The staff were all very friendly, very willing to help. There is security at night, the grounds are beautiful, the food is delicious. I would come here and stay again and again. Unfortunately it is 2016 and a place with a weak internet/WIFI connection is a game changer. There were a number of times I could...

The most special thing about the Hotel Le Djoloff is the people. They are friendly and helpful and will make staying a joy. The location is ideal. Situated near the ocean, it is close to the university and a short taxi ride downtown. Perhaps the best part of the hotel is the rooftop terrace. It is a nice place to...

Stayed here for the first time, can't imagine a better place! The staff is great! Breakfast, lunch and dinner are great. WiFi is a little shotty, but certain places have really strong connections. Nice little store in the lobby. Can't recommend it enough!

I've eaten here a few times, and am SO pleased to see an expansion of their vegetarian tapa options - I'll definitely be back more often now! It's tasty food served in a tranquil, natural clay though stylish rooftop terrace, by zen servers. What more can one ask for? The options are also imaginative beyond most places in town -...
