Dakar hotel

Al Baraka was fine for a West African city stopover. It was conveniently situated to look around town and other sites. Street food was cheap. You can change money at the airport. Euros are a fixed national rate 655 to the pound at present. Taxi from the chaotic airport will try to overcharge. We asked who would take us for 5 euros and got one easily. Hotel did offer breakfast (5 euros I think) but we just bought croissants at a local boulangerie. A big Supermarket wasn't too far away and there were lots of little 'supermarkets' (more like small shops) We were advised not to go out in the dark unless with a bigger group.

I do not believe this hotel is a 3 stars. It does not have a one star status.It does not deserve Hotel.com reccomendation at all. It needs total refurbishment.I think Hotel.com should delist them.The towels were as dirty as a foot mat. I had to buy my own towels for the entire stay.

Al Boroka Hotel in Dakar

Posted Mar 26, 2011 on Hotels.com
Avoid this "hotel" at all costs. It is terrible in nearly all respects. It is run very cheaply, no regard for clients and is a terrible cesspool within a garbage dump area. One of my most terrible choices out of several hundred overseas. The "restaurant" is usually devoid of people because it is terrible also. Thats why I only tried it once in 5 days. BAD,BAD,BAD,BAD,BAD
