Quiet and convenient location, close to the airport, a quick walk to the ocean, and a quick drive to Almadies nightlife area. Hotel was clean and well taken care of - we loved the interior design and the wooden furniture, colorful fabrics and modern style. Fatou Sowe was incredibly friendly and the breakfast was excellent. All of the food was...

Nice small hotel somewhat close to airport. Room was nice and food was simple but good. Staff was very attentive and helpful. Little challenging for taxi driver to find and he wanted to overcharge. Guard from hotel came to help with luggage and he went back to correct price which was 5,000 cfa. Looks plain from outside but inside is...

Spent 3 nights at La Residence Dakar and enjoyed the stay a lot. I do agree the sliding doors and a major safety issue. I realized the door was unlocked when I checked in at 2am. Once I figured out how to lock it I felt fine. When I returned to my room the next day after being out the...

Location is perfect if you are looking for somewhere close to good food, along with the Embassy. The group of us which were traveling for an extended period of time for work, spent a little bit over two months there in total, and the staff could not be nicer. The food was great, and it was nice to have a...

I had a really lovely stay at this hotel. The staff was friendly and polite and their English was fine. There was no air-conditioning in hotel lobby/stairway/hall - but this is normal in more areas of the country but it was HOT. The room was beautiful - beautifully decorated, nice, large size, nice bathroom, balcony along length of room which...

We stayed at La Residence for 11 days in July. We were a group of 11 people including younger kids and teens.

Who wouldn't stay here over King Fahd, Radisson Blu, or Terrou Bi? It's nice, quiet, has a lovely pool, and a generous, kind staff. The homemade breakfast was yummy and the cocktail bar quite responsive. Great place for a quick s. dip!

It's a nice hotel with a few rooms a couple of streets away from avenue Almadies, just surrounded by residency buildings of ambassadors.

“Ask for a room overlooking the pool. Don't let the outside of the hotel fool you as it's not much to look at.”

“Don't worry about rooms on the construction side - it's relatively quiet, and the quiet inside terrace and/or sea view makes up for it.”
