On the surface, La Demeure is one of the cosiest hotels I've ever visited. Lots of lounge areas where you can chill in comfortable chairs. Rooftop terrace. Pool. You name it. DAY ONE We arrived after 6 o'clock p.m. Reception closed, no one to ask how things work here. No wifi. Not possible to use all the nice lounge areas...

I stayed here for an extended time while apartment hunting- it was a very welcome change after staying at the King Fahd as the rooms are nicer, more comfortable, and there is more room to move around the space with common areas, kitchens, and extremely friendly staff. Fanta, the owner, has excellent taste and the whole place has stylish decor....

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

“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)”
