I travel frequently in Africa and am often dismayed to pay top dollar to stay in international chains, only to find that the actual hotels are far from the standard I would expect from those chains elsewhere in the world. Novotel Dakar is the exception to this rule - it is clean, modern, functional, has polite and efficient staff, and...

Location: This place is okay, but it's not very convenient. It's close to the USAID office and the ferry port to Gore Island, but there's no other reason to be in this part of town. The quality of the neighborhoods can change quickly within a few blocks, so there are better options nearby. Hotel Quality: The staff tried very hard...

This is a good palce in a good location at a reasonable price. Clean rooms, ok breakfast, good service at counter and good room service. But it is a place that could be anywhere in world and has no local flavour at all.

We recently stayed at the Novotel for a long 4-day weekend visit. We are American expats living in Lagos, and we wanted to have a change of scenery at a destination easy to travel to for a long weekend. The Novotel was a great choice for visiting the city. right next to the Marche Kermel market and the ferry to...

I give the Novotel a 5, it was excellent. And inexpensive. Generally when I get home, I am excited to sleep in my own bed - but this time I found myself missing the bed at Novotel. Down comforters, down pillows, high threadcount sheets, firm mattresss... the flat screen TV was also nice, although it could use more English speaking...

I travelled many times to Dakar for business. I used to stay at the Sofitel, where rooms were old (from the 70's) and smelled cigarette - but view from the restaurant and swimming pool are were wonderful. After being tired of the Sofitel, I switched to Novotel for which you get more value for a cheaper price. The hotel entrance...

I can't speak to what this hotel may have been like in the past, but based on other reviews I can only surmise that it must not be what it is today, which is a first rate hotel. It has undergone a full renovation, and I can not speak highly enough of my satisfaction with my room, the amenities, the...

The hotel is clean and modern. There is no construction anymore. Everything is really modern, you have wifi in your room and in the loby for free. Staff is helpful, and it is very well located, you can walk from here to very good restaurantes as well!
