10/10 Exceptional

Perfect St Louis Hotel
Awesome hotel in the historic part of St Louis. It's conveniently located near the bridge and is walkable to the whole island. The decor is all from the days of the French West African mail routes and you can definitely feel the history. There's a good restaurant and bar plus a pool owned by the hotel situated across the street on a prominad overlooking the river. Highly recommend!

2/10 Poor

Terrible hotel, staff lied about why we couldn't have the room requested and confirmed, terrible hotel environment, with the constant, aggressive harassment by men right outside the hotel and in the restaurant. Parking was right in front, and people were sitting on and looking into my car windows. 'Security' and staff didn't care, especially about the constant, aggressive harassment- men demanding money for 'washing' my car or watching over it day after day, when I told them to stay away and stop messing with it. Ironic that my car was scratched after telling the guy to stop harassing me constantly. Super stressful stay and dangerous environment, ruined weekend.

Hotel de la Poste charming and friendly
The Hotel de la Poste is a charming hotel famous as the hangout of the first transatlantic aviators of the 1930s. It is well located at the foot of historic Faidherbe Bridge in Saint-Louis of Senegal. The room was clean and comfortable, with A/C, but brong your own shampoo as they didn't provide any. We did not eat their breakfast. The restaurant was closed and they used a related one on the river across the street, where the locale (and the hotel's pool) was great but the service was disappointing. Saint Louis is charming with New Orleans style architecture though much of it is crumbling, and there are a number of good places to eat. Fresh fish thanks to the teeming fishing town just across from the isle, also worth visiting. There is an active nightlife, but shows start late.

The hotel had a lot of character and was comfortable. We didn’t like the parking which was at the front on the street and you are bombarded by people wanting money or trying to sell things.

A bit dated, but very comfortable!
Rooms are old and a bit dated, but the courtyard is amazing. Great location and very quiet, and the staff is very nice. The hotel is a really neat historic place too!

Pretty, good location
A pretty hotel in a very good location to explore the island part of Saint Louis. The hot water did not work in our room, but staff eventually moved us to a different room where the hot water worked. The bar is expensive and poorly stocked, so maybe take a walk to one of many other restaurants close by instead. The history of the hotel itself and the aeropostale pilots who give it its name are interesting.
