As others have mentioned, this is a lovely guesthouse in an excellent location (Almadies). It is within walking distance of several good restaurants, and is in a very safe community. (An excellent supermarket is a 10 minute walk.) The rooftop breakfast area is a nice place to relax. The pool is quite small (but I'm not a pool person!) The... More

I stayed at this hotel with my wife and daughter who is working in Senegal as Peace Corps Volunteer. We were upgraded to the spacious Zanzibar Suite at no extra cost. The hotel is very intimate, having only 7 rooms. There are many sitting rooms and a large kitchen available to guests. The roof garden was delightful had a fully... More

This guest house was FANTASTIC! A very inviting place and the staff is so nice! Even though we missed our overnight, we had dinner and showered here, they were so nice to us, because our flight was very delayed, and we only had limited time, we were happy we had the pleasure of being there. What a wonderful place to... More

I stayed at La Demeure for six nights in March 2014 and enjoyed it immensely. It's a small, nattily-decorated hotel with a very kind and helpful staff. I stayed first in the Guekedou room for two nights, before moving to the two-bedroom apartment on the top floor. Guekedou was fine, though there were mosquitoes in the room every day, I... More

We stayed for 3 nights at La Demeure and thought that overall it was fabulous. The townhouse is stylish, with cool white tile floors and many beautiful and tasteful African art pieces throughout. The common room could be in a style magazine. There's a small pool, much appreciated in muggy Dakar, with nice outdoor sofas. The rooftop lounge gives a... More

The shop is better than the hotel; if they put the same effort into the hotel as they have done for the shop it would be amazing. The shop is fabulous and full of local design items you will definitely stock up on. We loved the linen shirts. However, the hotel itself is an opportunity unfulfilled and they could do... More

The room was clean and large, the rooftop breakfast area was lovely. The staff wasn't really equipped to help tourists (suggest having maps, more suggestions for restaurants and sightseeing) but did try.

The first time I stayed in Dakar I was at the Radisson Blu, which was nice enough, but impersonal, and so this time I wanted something a bit cozier (and less expensive!). I found La Demeure, and spent a total of seven nights in two stays (with a trip to Saint Louis in the middle), where I was quite happy.... More

“Zanzibar (large space, one bed and one bathroom) and Laikipia (two bedroom apartment style) are the best rooms in the place in my opinion, but Laikipia has the added advantage of being like the penthouse suite with a kitchenette and spacious living room overlooking the ocean (and the roof deck right outside)”
