"Convenient hotel close to airport but average rooms and service"
Hotel located a ten minutes ride from the airport and 20 minutes from the main financial and administrative locations (with average trafic). The rooms are average with OK decoration, no wifi (but the hotel pretends there is), and average cleanliness. The morning breakfast is average, and the food served in the evening (one try when arriving from my flight) is below average. The lobby is small and groups the reception, bar, dining room and business center in the same location, then it's noisy but the only place where one can work with the wifi. Lots of oil&gas industry people everywhere, few tourists. To use when on a business trip and one needs to be close to the airport. Check-out may take long, and even longer...
staying for long duration more than one time. amazing helpful friendly staff is the best thing in this place. good food although limited options. major complaint is the noise house keeping make while cleaning the rooms. if you are planning to sleep late or relax at your room on a weekend you will wake up even if you have the do not disturb sign on the door from how hard they shut the doors tens of times while cleaning surrounding rooms around you which will wake you up thinking there is an earthquake and this will last till afternoon. hope they can work without smashing the doors as if they want to bring the building down.
Under no circumstances underestimate how hot the weather in Senegal can be. While being from Guatemala, I thought that just as a country in the tropics the weather was going to be the same, until I suffered a heat stroke in Saint Louis and came back rushing back from Saint Louis to Dakar. All I can say is that Onomo Hotel was truly a life saver for someone recovering from heat stroke (e.g. dehydration, severe headaches, stomach problems, weakness and muscle pain). The staff at Onomo, especially Ibrahim and Bubakar, treated me with lots of patience and good food, aiming for a quick recovery. In fact, all I can say that if I wouldn't have had stayed at Onomo for 5 nights--and where the food was great by the day, very clean--I would of probably ended up at the Hospital in Dakar. Onomo is great for a couple of day to a night since it is close to the airport--or whether you are feeling under the weather and need to sleep and rest.
"Terrible service "
I reported a faulty room air conditioner at the reception. It took 1h30 before a so called technician arrived at my room. The technician stayed approximately 3 minutes and disappeared. Next reception phone to tell me that is what the air conditioning is like and I will have to deal with it. When I asked how they expected me to sleep in a now sauna I was informed that I must deal with it and what do I expect them to do. Terrible terrible terrible service.
"Ok for a stopover"
Stayed for a one night stopover enroute. Good points - close to airport, airport shuttle easy to find, staff speak English, wifi excellent, room clean. Bad points - drains blocked (I've found this to be very common in Africa). Breakfast pretty simple but sufficient.
