ViaVia Senegal Dakar - Hostel/Backpacker

A great location and place

I stayed here on a few day trip to Senegal. I was quite impressed with the entire place. The neighborhood of Yoff is a nice and special place, and it is not too far from the city center. The room was nice, and had western appliances. Additionally, there are mosquito nets and a good and working fan. The included breakfast is good.

Yaas Hotel Dakar Almadies

Great hotel

Great hotel very friendly and helpful staff - the facility was modern, breakfast was great the rooms are very clean and incredibly comfortable - located 20 min drive from the airport and a walk away from the beach. Lots of good dining options around - great experience will go back for sure if I'm ever in Dakar again

Radisson Blu Hotel

not a hotel for business

I stay in a lot of hotels, and my travel is for business. I have traveled a lot in Africa and the developing world, so i'm not spoiled, though. this is an expensive hotel and part of a good chain, I would expect excellent, friendly service. I found that it was simply impossible to get the attention of waiters or the people at the bar. the servers would stand around in groups and chat with their backs to the customers, and if you didn't stand up and walk over and tap somebody on the back, you couldn't get service. now, if I was there for a week vacation and I wasn't in a hurry about anything then that isn't a problem. when you are trying to get stuff done it is. I also had some bug experiences - not horrible but again for the price I paid I would expect better. I had ants on my plate in the restaurant and when I pointed it out to the hostess she shrugged and gave me anew plate.

Terrou-Bi Beach & Casino Resort

The hotel is very nice, but over priced

The location on the beach is nice. The hotel is high-end but overpriced. The staff could have been a bit more helpful.
