Visited my sister in Dakar and we went several times to the upstairs bar/dining area as there was the football European Championship and Hôtel Du Phare offers big screens to watch it. I was not a guest at the hotel, so I cannot comment on the rooms, but I can say the terrace is lovely and the service is also...

We are having a hard time understanding all the rave reviews for Hotel du Phare after a five-night stay that was far from relaxing or ideal. The courtyard & roof are charming enough, but the rooms are dim & dingy, with decaying fixtures & dirty & torn bedsheets. On first arriving, I asked how the air conditioner worked. It turns...

The hotel has reasonable price and good location for taking short trips around Dakar. The airport is close by, you have less than 5 min walk to the main road where you can get a taxi to anywhere. There are also some small stores, pharmacy, bus stop, restaurant, bar in the neighbourhood. We had the room with shared bathroom and...

Went to visit my brother who lives outside of Dakar and we stayed here for the first few days of our journey. The air conditioning was good, the staff was very friendly and it's in a safe neighborhood. One of the nights we stayed there was a party up on the roof. There was music and a really good crowd!

Was advertised as good for families with spacious rooms - incorrect. Room was tiny. Constant loss of electricity. Best use of this hotel is for one night - quick in and out. Expensive neighborhood, hard to find reasonably priced food nearby. Wifi was inconsistent. It is more a bar than a hotel and music plays all night. Some of the...

I was there for 5 nights during my visit to Dakar. The place has charm and is well located near the airport, Ngor beach and Les Almeides. The basic rooms don't have bathroom. At the beginning they didn't want to accept my credit card but finally did. The employés are nice and the owner a bit distant. It's worth to...

Hotel Du Phare is away from the centre centre of Dakar but within easy reach of many good restauarants and some wonderful sites. It is only a short taxi ride in to the centre of Dakar. It is small and totally safe. Gana, who is front of house for the french couple who own the hotel, is helpful and looks...

Again, I write with the caveat that I've been living in rural Senegal for the last 3 months so everything is a change for me. Hotel du Phare is pretty great--lots of character, bright colors and friendly staff. They have an airport service for 5,000 CFA fixed, which is great for late night flights and delays. Mamelles is a sleepy...

Last time I went to Dakar I decided to go off the 'mass tourism' circle and to go for a more 'human size' thing. I definitely found it in Hotel du Phare! This a very nice family run place, the staff is really welcoming and helpful. The breakfast is simple (but quite typical: Senegalese seem to be fond of Nscafe!)...
