Poor 2.0
Bad hotel
Where to start. They dont have their own airport transfer. When I asked to arrange they just gave me a local number. No one to carry out your luggage from your car. Took forever to give the room. By the way prices at which I booked at the agent website was different than the prices at the hotel. So they charged me extra. The room they gave me was like stains on WC. Towels lying on the floor. Used paper tissues all over. They changed my room when I blasted on them. Went to the bar. It took 50 mns for a sandwich. And when I decided to go in my room asked the waiter to provide the sandwich there. It took me 3 hours and so many calls to get that sandwich in my room. By the way delivered stale sandwich. Wont recommend this hotel to anyone.

Comfortable and Professional
I come to Dakar on business once or twice a year and this is where I stay. Comfortable and the restaurant has food that I enjoy. Professional staff is a plus.

Very good 8.0
Comfortable, but nothing spectacular for the price. The hotel is a bit dated and worn out, though good by regional standards.

Good 6.0
The hotel was fine but the room service was very poor. I requested an iron on 3 occasions to iron my shirt but they did not deliver to the room as promised. Also the safe in the room did not work. When I asked for an engineer to come and fix, again they noted it but never did anything about it.

Convenient, well placed with good amenities
All is good, there is the pool and the music at night when you want to relax and the wifi when you want to work. It's a Novotel, not a Pullmann, so the room is good, not outstanding but the view on the sea is !

Very good 8.0
Good experience hotel + restaurant. Just a couple of remarks. Espresso machines to slow and too few at breakfast. Windows too narrow considering the sea view.
