If I were planning a trip to Senegal, I would plan my itinerary around the availability of this lovely hotel. This is easily one of the best hotels that I have ever stayed in, for so many reasons. First, there is owner Marie-Caroline. Second, there is Marie-Caroline. Third, there is the cocktail hour. She has created a beautiful and atmospheric... More

I stayed at this charming haven of calm back in May 2016. It was the absolute highlight of my trip. Saint Louis is hectic and dirty--but very interesting. But after a long day of heat, haggling and horse poo, coming back to Au Fil du Fleuve was heaven. Gorgeously decorated, wonderful rooms that have little details like design books and... More

We loved Au Fil du Fleuve. The rooms are comfortable, cool, & clean. The en suite bathrooms are spa-like, with a variety of local soaps & scrubs to try. The terrace & other spaces for relaxing are so comfortable that you may forget your other plans & end up staying in for the day. But, as others have noted, hostess... More

This is a beautiful guest house, but what makes it outstanding is the host, Marie-Caroline. She spent much time talking to us about St Louis, Senegal and herself, which really added to our experience. She made top-notch suggestions for things to do and places to go during our two night stay, including organising taxis and guides where we needed it.... More

Marie Caroline is a fantastic hostess with a wealth of information about food, culture and traditions, which she shares around apero and breakfast. In the morning, she serves local fruit, home made Senegalese jams and juices. Her guesthouse is tastefully decorated and features artwork by local artists. The only slight glitch is about practical details: lighting in the rooms is... More

Au Fil du Fleuve is such homey and beautiful B&B, every design detail was perfectly crafted using local Saint Louis artistry. The host Mme Camara is so generous and kind and welcomed us with open arms, she makes it a point to enhance your learning experience of the town. She takes into consideration every single client need. My family and... More

This place is all that you are longing for when you are 'on the road'. Beautiful place, the owner Marie-Caroline who knows St. Louis very well and could guide you to all the special places, friendly staff, clean rooms and tastefully decorated. Breakfast is amazing.

It's not like another glowing review is necessary--every other review has rightly praised Marie-Caroline's home for its subtle charm, abundant hospitality, and warm welcome. I'm writing only because all those glowing reviews made us a little suspicious if they were real. But they seemed legitimate and now we're glad they won us over...as wonderful as the breakfasts and the details... More

This place has a nice breakfast and they offer apertifs in the evening. They're in a convenient location and the entire place is stylishly done. Their staff is friendly and helpful and provided excellent recommendations for places to eat, guides (we liked Moussa Ka), and directions on how to actually get to the b&b. We'll recommend this place to other... More

From the warm, late night greeting upon arrival to the constant attention to detail, this Maison d'hotes is a wonderful find. Marie-Caroline will take care of your every need from mapping out a self-guided walking tour to letting you know where the new Creperie is which makes a perfect lunch stop.
