We are visitors from the United States staying in the Novotel for three days. First let me say that the hotel is decent, not what I would consider four stars. The rooms are small, and there was construction going on that woke us up every morning. We were over billed for room service, the waiter stole money from us, and...

The rooms and lobby are standard business quality. Wifi worked pretty well in the room. Restaurant is fine, nothing exceptional. Breakfast is mostly a lot of bread and fruit, with some cheese, bacon, etc. There is no one to make you an omelet if you expect that sort of thing. Best part is the ocean view - make sure you...

From welcome, check in, room service to restaurant and housekeeping, the Novotel Dakar seems to really have put itself on another level compared to most of the middle level chain hotels in Africa. The check in was fast, proffesional and very friendly. The rooms are nice, large and equiped with everything you need for an enjoyable stay. the beds are...

Went to Dakar for Christmas '11. We got exactly what we wanted peace and quiet, just me and my husband. Considering senegal is not predominatly Christian we knew to expect this. Right from the airport, the services were polite and curtious. Even the driver purposely drove us past landmark areas that we could take pictures and come back and see...

We arrived late in Dakar and our intial Restaurat has been cancelled due to the recencent events in Dakar. Theotel service was excellent, the Restaurant has been reopened for our group and the food was fine. the Wfi is free and work fine. The prize for the drinks are resonable. The Room respects the Bovotl normes and was very clean....

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights after a long trip to Mali. It was a welcome oasis! We arranged for the shuttle to pick us up from the airport, and after our flight arrived an hour late at midnight I was pleased that they waited for us. The hotel is well situated across from the beach, and...

The Novotel is a great option for downtown Dakar -- clean and well-styled rooms, fantastic central location for exploring the plateau and Ile de Goree, and beautiful views on the Atlantic. The bar is quite an ex-pat see-and-be-scene, the pool is lovely, and there's free WiFi (which worked perfectly well for us) and an ATM in the lobby. Especially compared...

This is my second in Dakar, previously I stayed at Pullman, compared to that I've found out that it's much better at Novotel than Pullman, the place is more relaxed and best of all the design is more modern and newer. About the food it's much better, loved the seafood here.
