If you don't want to stay in the centre of Dakar this is a very good option. The hotel has everything you need and for a very cheap price compared to other hotels in Dakar. Staff is friendly, rooms are clean, atmosphere is warm and it has a nice terrace on the roof.
Breakfast could perhaps be a bit more elaborated.
A small, very welcoming hotel away from the noise and pollution of central Dakar. It was spotlessly clean and we felt very safe. There are a number of excellent restaurants within a short taxi ride and simple but good, meals are served at the hotel. I would recommend the Hotel du Phare to anyone.
No fresh fruit at breakfast.
The rooms are adequate if you're looking for a bed and a place to put your luggage. The location is convenient. Staff appeared friendly and helpful.
rooftop bar for world cup watching; bright, colorful decor;
loss of power on floor 2, where we were staying, when it was still on downstairs and up.
Great location. Lovely boutique style decoration. Great staff
Only 1 toilet and shower to share between many people.. was hard to get a chance in
Loved the hotel, from the common area, roof top to the rooms. The atmosphere was really friendly and chilled. Excellent staff, they were ever so helpful they really did make our stay. Great location, easy access to beach, markets, Dakar Plateau, etc...
Nothing, everything was really great.
We arrived at the hotel after a delayed flight at 3:30 a.m.. The staff went out of their way to be welcoming and continued to be so for the duration of our stay. The hotel is perfectly located to be able to easily walk to both some excellent restaurants and an incredible surf spot (Secret Spot) and the food and ambiance are wonderful.
Low key hotel, nicely decorated, located in a neighborhood and not on the main road.
I had a mosquito bothering me all night. I think it would be good to provide nets in the rooms.
The calm and nice location close to the sea.
Prior to my arrival I had called and even though the Guest House does not have airport pickup they were very helpful in getting me a trusted taxi driver to pick me up. The checking in was smooth and both receptionist Gana & I believe Mariatou or jainaba were extremely professional and helpful. If you are looking for a 4 star hotel this is not the place but if are looking for a nice clean place with basic facilities and a friendly environment this is the place for you. The food was reasonable and nice as expected of African food. The plus however for me was its proximity to the airport. I have no hesitation to recommend Du Phare. It was a pleasure staying there.
The atmosphere was very peaceful and relaxing. The location was great and in walking distance to banks, grocery stores, and the lighthouse.
There was some confusion with how much to pay for the airport shuttle. I paid for two cab fares and when booking the shuttle was under the impression it would just be a one way price.
Everything staff , comfort, cleanliness, location etc
