2/10 Poor

I am a fan of the Novotel at Suvarnabhumi airport in Bangkok so I had high hopes. This is among the most expensive hotels in Dakar yet the food service is cafeteria quality ..not up to restaurant standards ..and yet much more expensive than comparable hotels around Dakar. On arriving I was told my room included breakfast so I had the buffet. At checkout this was denied and they insisted I pay a very inflated price for the buffet I would not have taken if not for the statement of their employee. I complained vigorously but amazingly they would not own up to their own mistake. Do not waste you money at this old tired overpriced hotel with terrible service.

old port and beyond
There was a high level event in Dakar this week. Hotel was fully booked by very demanding guests, leaving early and coming back after 8pm. Hotel team was up to the situation and even organise fine music in bar at pool area. Kudos to them! I read complaints on forums, hotel is OK, maybe Dakar is not for you. Great metropolis in making.

Please change the carpets in the rooms
I was given the choice to get either a room with carpet or laminated floor, carpet was very old not so clean. That needs to be changed. Laminated floor was pretty new.
