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.
Hotel des Almadies is pretty good. It is undergoing a renovation -- or doing new construction that should make it better. Rooms are clean and adequate. Shower worked and had warm water. The sink had poor water pressure.
When I arrived, they did not have my reservation. This was for a major conference and all of Dakar was booked. But they managed to get me a room by noon, so I was pleased to have a room.
The hotel is right across from the US Embassy and soon USAID (under construction). It has a beautiful view of the ocean and a pool (did not swim). Lots of mosquitoes in and around the hotel. Internet is in the lobby...so you can get eaten up without bug spray. My room had a bed net, so I had not problems. And almost no mosquitoes in the room.
