This hotel is a 4-star Novotel unworthy: - overall very dirty hotel - standard room is 2-star equivalent - friendly personnel is very exceptional - food is below average - breakfast below 4-star average/standard - inadequate restaurant service; floors, tables and chairs general in dirty conditions - way too expensive!

The room is acceptable with some air conditioning complaints came from colleagues in certain rooms. The hotel is safe, clean and tidy but lacks the customer care. For example, laundry service is only available between 8 till 10 am, and any request to send laundry beyond this time period will not be accepted. (Not useful for aircrews) The outside restaurant...

I had to stay at this hotel because there was a big security conference going on in Dakar and it was the only "business hotel" with available rooms. The hotel room reminds you at best of a a low budget hotel in the states that needs to be updated. The lobby area is very nice, but the rooms leaves a...

The staff does an amazing job. The hotel is clean and safe. The security here is as good as it gets. The internet is really hit or miss. They are located very close to the Port of Dakar which is convenient if you're going to be doing business at the port.

While there for business I could not conduct anything dealing with the internet. I was moved from room to room to find a better wifi connection but there was none.

The building was a little bit run down, but the staff tried to make it up with good service. Food is rather limited when it comes to variety and the breakfast quality is rather poor too. I recommend you go around for breakfast (Kaiser), lunch (La Fourchette) and dinner (La Parrilla) or so many other options... There is a sizeable...
