I was thoroughly impressed with the Hotel. It's always easy to find something to grumble about, in this case the room allocated was not what was booked, but other than that the service was good, all staff spoke good English. The restaurants were excellent - the fine dining experience with fresh fish from the display, to the thin crust Pizza's at the bar. Great location too.

I was in Dakar to research a novel and the Novotel was absolutely perfect--quiet enough for me to work in my room for hours on end, great food delivered to my room by courteous staff, helpful connections to local tour guides. I couldn't have asked for more. Worth every dime!
Hotel Madrague is perfect for people traveling in or out of Dakar. It is very close to the airport (about 15 minutes), and the rooms are decent and clean, surprisingly so for Dakar. It isn't fancy or particularly spectacular, but it is perfectly comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful. I wouldn't necessarily want to stay longer than a night, but for a quick overnight stop in the midst of travel it's perfect.
This hotel is close to our office, so I'm writing this from a business user perspective. We work in international development, so we don't have large budgets for 5* hotels - we just need somewhere clean, comfortable, with decent internet and, if possible, also serves food.
This hotel was excellent on all those points. The staff also really went the extra mile - I didn't have change to buy something from the convenience store opposite (just a large denomination note) - the staff asked me what I wanted, then went out for an hour, got change from someone, bought it for me, and brought everything up to my room. They also got a better price that I'd been offered.
Only consideration: I don't speak great French, but enough to get buy. You'll need to be at least at this level - don't expect them to speak great English. But since Senegal is a French speaking country, this really shouldn't be a surprise.
I stayed in this hotel for more than one week and I enjoyed every moment of it. The rooms are constantly kept clean, the staffs are very nice and helpful, and the restaurant clean and comfortable. I will certainly lodge here the next time I visit Dakar. Don't forget to tip the staff, it raises their morals and you will find that they really deserve it.
