This is a great local hotel in Dakar. I stayed there for a week while I was at a conference. The roof-top cafe/bar has an excellent view of the coast and it is a relaxing place to spend some time in the morning or after a day in the city.

If you are planning a trip to Dakar, than Djoloff is the best place to stay. The staff is extraordinaire, very helpul and friendly, they have a great terrace to enjoy your breakfast, luch or dinner, their menu is very tasty and more of that you feel safe.

I stayed at the Djoloff for two weeks in January on a business trip. I can really say it was a perfect stay. Cosy and characterful hotel, excellent room and facilities as well as delicious and extremely varied food (such I had very limited incentives to explore options in the neighbourhood). The menu changes on a daily basis depending on...

After a 1am arrival and a 90 min drive to take us the 13km to the hotel from the airport (worth noting on a major party night/national holiday such as NYE, since it's one main road along the coast, 1000s of taxis and multiple clubs and bars en route) we arrived in a suburban street to small unassuming building which...

We arrived at Hotel Le Djoloff directly from the airport. This was our first trip to Senegal and we quickly got a taste of Senegalese hospitality (excluding the crush at the airport of course). Staff were quick to assist us with carrying our many bags upstairs and getting us settled into our two rooms. The hotel has a number of...

The hotel building, rooms, and roof terrace restaurant are all lovely and this is an oasis of calm in Dakar. Just a few things to bear in mind though. Our hotel organised our transfer from the airport and told us, by email, that the cost would be 15 euros, then tried to charge us 20 euros on arrival "because it...

Le Djoloff is always a great place to go for a sunset and tapas. One has to go with a sense of adventure though as this is Africa and the unexpected can be expected. The bar was out of lemon juice which meant that all but one cocktail were no available. A new building now partially blocks the view on...

Wonderful, well done boutique style hotel in Dakar. The rooms are simple, but done in a very artful way. The rooftop is the gem with a great breakfast/dinner/bar area for enjoying the views and just hanging out. Stayed here for four nights for a conference and it was well worth it.

What marks this hotel out is the staff. They are very efficient and friendly. The terrace is also great for all meals and is very relaxing after a day in Dakar (especially the markets). The rooms are fine. Bathrooms are small and there seems to be a problem with the drains at times, but again mention it to reception and...

Found this hotel on TripAdvisor and the reviews are right on. Staff was very helpful, not only with reservation but also with arranging car service for pickup at the airport. The rooms are clean and nicely furnished. It is located in a quiet neighborhood, but a taxi stand is right outside the hotel, so that downtown and most other destinations...
