The location of the hotel is unmatched. It is a walking distance to Gare De Dakar, Independence Place, and the ferry to Goree Island.
The staff were courteous (initially), and the owner,Jean Micheal, was helpful. When we couldn’t charge our gadgets, he bought us a universal adapter.
The free breakfast was also really good. I particularly enjoyed the fresh bread and eggs.
When you need to iron, you have to take it down to the staff, and they iron your clothes for you… which is an awesome service. However, the girl burnt my pants and did not say anything. It was later while I was out in town that I saw that my pants had a hole from iron burns. I would have appreciated her owning up to it.
Lastly!! This hotel needs to do better in the area of food cleanliness. Several times, I saw the staff use their FINGERS to put ice in glasses for patrons.The first time was the guy who makes cocktails. I saw him use his bare hands to put ice in a cup while making cocktails for a guest! This is unacceptable, and it turned me off majorly. I also saw one of the young girls in the restaurants do the same. It is appalling (esp in covid times). No one knows where your hands have been! I hope management corrects this immediately.
Other than this, I enjoyed my stay here. The price was right, hotel was comfortable, and location, amazing! I will definitely stay here again.
