The rooms are dark, and a bit on the smaller side. Sleep quality is ok, not the greatest. Shower is hot, and shower power is good. Internet is free and good. Breakfast is a good spread. One thing I enjoyed about this hotel is the pool side area and having drinks there, but generally, I think the hotel is over priced for the quality and services.
It is right in the middle of town (plateau).
One irritating thing is that they can have loud events late into the night and one hears the noise from the room.

Good service, well kept building and rooms. If you are considering taking breakfast, I would recommend you take a walk to a cafe in the city centre (a healthy 10-15 min morning walk).

Nice pool, good views and close enough to several restaurants and cafes.

Stayed here for work for a whole week,on the 5th floor.

Airport shuttle will set you back 25k but it was prompt and comfortable.

The Accor welcome evening drinks/get together was a nice touch and it was great t mingle.

Wide variety of breakfast options but I found the a la carte menus for lunch and dinner quite limited. The crepes were cold as they were left out (unheated) as opposed to being made on individual orders. I had the marmite aux crevettes several times for dinner and did not get fed up of it!

Pool is inviting but only opens from 10 to 7pm which is not ideal for us business travellers who tend to be up early and return late to the hotel.

The cleaners do a great job. TV channels are limited for Anglophones, nothing much in English.

All staff (waiting, cleaning, restaurant, reception, security etc) were approachable, helpful and welcoming. Hotel is located in the same complex as Hotel Ibis and is about 70m from the French embassy.

Hotel is also walking distance to the spa at Pullman hotel. Much cheaper to stay here and walk to the spa, will take you about 10 - 15 mins. Place de l'Independance and a large Casino supermarket are a stone's throw away.

Thinking of the environment, hotel could invest in wall mounted soap dispensers instead of the the daily use of plastic tubes for shampoo, lotion etc.

It was my first time at Novotel Ibis Dakar for 5 working days.
I appreciated the team reactivity and pragmatism. Had no problems with the WIFI in the meeting rooms; and IT Team is always providing a solution to problems.
And the restaurant, was just perfect ! Plenty and tasty food.
Looking for a week-end to enjoy the swimming pool now, lol !
