Stayed with my family here in the Lakipia room, the apartment on the top floor, had a wonderful time and it truly felt like a home away from home, as the apartment had a full kitchen and comfortable living room with beautiful decor (and a tv with CNN, and good wifi access). In fact the entire guesthouse has very beautiful...

I absolutely love this guest house! The property is very comfortable and beautifully appointed. We stayed in the 2 bedroom rooftop apartment and it felt like a home away from home. I didn't mind the stairs since it added to the experience of the African culture. The staff was very friendly and accommodating, including our driver to and from the...

World class decor, contemporary wood and brass furnishings and art that could grace any 5 star hotel anywhere! So spacious, everything worked well, facilities second to none, and quite unusually excellent from our other African experiences. Beautiful, creative architecture. Very welcoming. Can't say enough good things about it. Stay here if you can!

Stayed here with wife and mother-n-law before and after a West African tour. This place far exceeded our expectations. We had the 2 bedroom suite on the rooftop. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. The owner Fanta made us feel like family. Thanks Able, Momi, and our personal driver Traore! Nice quite neighborhood. Several shops and restaurants within walking...

Rooms were clean and comfortable, and the staff were very helpful. Breakfast was excellent, as was the view from the terrace. There were some issues - a/c worked intermittently through the night - but they were not too bad. The location is also a plus, being so close to the airport. Overall it was good for the price, would stay...

Our airport pickup arrived seriously late, exposing us to the masses in a new third-world country at midnight. We liked the room, especially sleeping under mosquito netting, and the small breakfast proved satisfying, if expensive. Dakar has far to go before before it's ready for prime time.

The service was superb. Owners and staff, including drivers, were very helpful. The location is very good and the furnishings excellent. The swimming pool and the large public areas were a real plus. Rooftop meals were excellent. I would have no hesitation in recommending La Demeure to my friends.

Very few of the local taxis will know where this place is, being tucked away off the main strip in Almaladies. Once you find it you will not be disappointed. It is a quiet and stylish escape and only a few minutes walk to the hustle and bustle. Rooms are nice, roof bar is very civilized and the tiny pool...

Stayed here for a week. Stuff were friendly, breakfast was good. There are a lot of dogs in the area so would be regularly woken by barking and fighting. Only downside is it is very close to the mosque which is being built so be prepared for very early mornings.

I stayed at La Demeure twice during July 2013. What an absolute pleasure. They were both times on the spot to fetch me from the airport. The staff were very friendly and helpful. the rooms are lovely and spacious. I enjoyed every minute of my stay. In the future, this is where I will stay when I am in Dakar.

“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)”
