    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.

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

    3.7star.. Accurate rating

    In general, it was ok. Likes: bfast buffet was good, drinks and food were good value Don't Likes: extremely slow service ( like they are trying to avoid you), and can't get any fresh air in the rooms (windows blocked) so air in the room is stale and does not smell to great. Took room with 2 single beds and they were hard as rocks..

    Good hotel. Clean, safe and comfortable.

    I stayed here for 5 nights with several colleagues attending a conference and we had a good stay. Rooms are clean and well-appointed with comfortable beds and good showers. Bar, breakfast and food were all excellent, if a little pricey. There are lots of good reataurants, a little tourist market and a good supermarket within a 10 minute walk. The hotel has very good, but friendly, security staff. My favourite thing was the outside bar area and the pool. The pool was very clean, nice temperature and the pool attendant was so lovely and really helpful. I would definitely recommend the Novotel.
