After traveling for many hours it was great to arrive at La Residence, with the cool breezy in the reception area and a table waiting for us in the restaurant. Great food, friendly staff and the rooms are small but comfortable. We had breakfast, lunch and dinner at the hotel and it was all good! Love the bar as well,...

Having been here a couple of times I can say that it is one of the nicest places to stay/eat in St Louis. The decor is lovely, the food great and the staff are very friendly. A lot of Europeans tend to eat in the restaurant here and the place has a really nice vibe. I would recommend.

It is a must to visit Saint Louis when in Senegal. Its colonial architecture, its cafes and its streets have something magical to it, as if you were in Antigua Guatemala, but in the West African version of. Hotel La Residence is THE hotel--close to everything, with great food and service and awesome tours if you want to take them....

This is a great place to stay in Saint Louis as it is close to walk around and in a safe area. The suites are great for two people and are clean. Make sure you check out the rooftop, it is beautiful to have a beer in the evening and look down on Saint Louis. The only thing that made...

I stayed here in March of this year but due to one thing and another I have only just got around to writing about it now. I have written about St Louis, (plus a hotel), before, but staying in the Hotel La Residence made the journey back there to this very special place even more pleasurable. The Hotel La Residence,...

Steeped in history, this hotel is very nice and conveniently located place in town. The staff is warm and welcoming. The restaurant is a very good address. Rooms, concise and simple, remain comfortable for a short stay. Some of the reviews say the hotel is dirty and dilapidated. I dont agree, I'd consise. This's not the kind of hotel where...

Stayed here on a school trip visiting from the United States. As an aficionado of colonial architecture and history, this hotel does not disappoint! It helps to have a working knowledge of the French language to smooth your visit to Hotel La Residence. The rooms were clean, and the staff pleasant. The restaurant is very pleasant, and an excellent way...

We did not stay at the hotel la residence but simply ate at the restaurant. It was disappointing to say the least. 1. The service: maybe one of the worse ever seen. We had to wait over 30 min to get drinks. We asked if the air conditioning device that was right above our table could be switched off and...

The hotel is in the middle of the St. Louis Island, so location is central and great. The old-style colonial decoration, with pictures of the times gone-by and posters and news from those times, makes an inviting atmosphere. The restaurant serves fantastic food and internet was ok. However, there was a black-out in a series of rooms in the only...

I loved the stay. Its a very charming atmosphere, colonial style, staff very friendly and right in the city centre. We had to cancel one night at short notice (one day before) and they were very understanding and didnt charge us. The upstairs terrace has really good views.l and the downstairs terraces hosts some good concerts if you are lucky....
