Stay was ok Staff friendly but room is basic although clean but not what I would expect from a four star hotel Biggest concerns are that one of my credit cards were used to pay for some of the stay although at check in I did not have enough credit on the card to reserve the full requested amount and used another card and far more worryingly two other cards that I used in an ATM in the hotel, one of which I have not used anywhere else were subsequently fraudulently used on line I cannot with 100 % fidelity confirm that the use in the ATM is the cause of subsequent fraudulent use but as stated above this is the only location where I have in the past few months used both and I have not had previous issues with these cards

Lots of potential, bad service

Customer review rating 4.0/5

Sara M. Business - 15/02/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

The hotel has a perfect location, beautiful view. Unfortunately the service is so bad it makes you feel very much unwelcome. Terrible pillows, i actually complained to the director anx he promisdd to send new pillows, nothing was done. Breakfast was improved but is still miles away from being worthy of a 4star hotel, especially that the novotel brand is usually excellent in terms of food, and i have tested more novotel hotels in other countries. Novotel dakar is the exception, every rule, restriction makes you feel like you re staying there as a favor. There is no customer satisfaction culture, only what costs less, and whats less troublesome. I sincerely hope they improve it. Also the only novotel i know that doesnt have a gym!!

Dear Sara m., Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience at the Novotel Dakar. I am sorry that your experience did not meet your expectations; please allow me to express our sincerest apologies. About pillows, we thank you for letting us know and please, note that the housekeeper is dealing it in order to change all pillows. Necessary measures will be taken about cleaning staff so that such a situation does not happen again. The GYM is schedule for this year. We have taken note of your various constructive comments and please be assured that we value all our guests' feedback to be of utmost importance to us and will ensure that the necessary corrective measures are taken accordingly to avoid any similar situations in the future. Yours sincerely, Management Team.

Service delivery was ok and the hotel ideally located by the shore line that provides a nice view to guests. The only issue is that all the power sockets are double-pin instead of three-pin power sockets.

Dear Abdul F., We very much appreciate your comments regarding your stay at the Novotel Dakar. It is always a pleasure to receive your feedback. I will share your comments with our team. I am sure that this feedback will serve as an encouragement to all of our staff as we strive to continuously improve the quality of our services. About the issue linked to power sockets, please accept our sincerest appologies. We inform you, for the next time, to ask at the reception as there are avalable adaptators for three-pin. Thank you again for sharing your experience, and we hope your next visit will be better than the previous one. Yours sincerely, Management Team.

The hotel is at a good location , situated in downtown Dakar. Its very suitable location for business travellers as most of the government offices are just a stone throw distance. Most of the time the hotel is full so if you want to book the hotel, do it on time.

Disappointed in communication from Accor regarding need to amended reservation

Customer review rating 4.0/5

Anonymous Business - 09/12/2019 Confirmed reviews ALL

My stay got off to a bad start when I asked to add one night to the start of my reservation given unexpected travel one day early due to weather in the US. At end of first flight I got email from Accor saying all properties in Dakar were booked and my request could not be accommodated. I began searching Hotels.com and the Pullman was offered there so I pre paid and made the reservation. At the end of my second leg of flight, on arrival to Dakar now I had an email from Novatel with a reservation confirmation for the additional night! I went to Novatel to see if I could in fact check in and stay for the whole 4 night stay and could they assist me to cancel the Pullman. Unfortunately, because I booked through Hotels.com the Novatel could not cancel the PUllman and so recommended that I do stay at the PUllman. I of course would never have made the Pullman reservation had I not received the email from Accor saying all properties booked for my extra night. So I checked in and out of two hotels during my stay, not ideal!

Dear Louise M., Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience at the Novotel Dakar. I am sorry that your experience did not meet your expectations; please allow me to express my sincerest apologies. Actually when you made the reservation, the hotel was full. When we had availability, we thought of you. And since your reservation at Pullman is made via an agency, we could not cancel it. Our apologies once again for this inconvenience Yours sincerely, Management Team
