The staff were absolutely delightful at Hotel Mar Azul. They were incredibly helpful and friendly; they offered good suggestions of restaurants and activities in Lagos. They were also happy to make changes to the length of our stay with no added fee. The room was basic but clean; which is perfect as we were out most of the time anyway.... More

The Hotel Mar Azul is a good hotel, there is nothing bad or great about it. The positives of the hotel is the location and the room was tidy and clean. The drawbacks are it can be noisy at night (depending on which room you get, I recommend a balcony room), it is very basic, and you have to pay... More

Exactly as advertised! Clean, comfortable, reasonable, with a light free breakfast located in the old city center next to dozens of restaurants, bars, and shops. Run by a husband/wife team, it was very affordable while delivering the modern conveniences, but most importantly not trying to be more than it was. If you want to be at the heart of it... More

A pleasant stay with staff that's friendly and helpfull. Room was clean and proper. Modern airconditioning, only the bathroom had no air-extraction. We didn't had breakfast but it lookes good. And of course the location of this hotel is marvelous right in the city center.

We stayed at Mar Azul for 4 nights while visiting Lagos and loved it (young couple from Canada). It's really a "gem of Lagos" like lonely planet describes it to be. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. The rooms are big, clean and modern. It almost feels like a resort but it really has the BEST location of any... More

Hotel Mar Azul is right in the heart of the town center of Lagos and just a 15-minute walk from the bus station. The place has just 16 rooms, so it is small and intimate. Our room was a bit tiny, but was very clean and modern. We were in Lagos in April --- before the high season. In July... More

After staying here for three night I can not recommend this place more highly, the owner could not have been nicer without being overpowering. If you want very reasonable, clean, and comfortable accommodation then don't hesitate booking this hotel. The location is right in the centre of old town Lagos but not disturbed by outside noise.

Hotel Marazul-Lagos Location Location Location Good: Please bare in mind the price you are paying is for a budget hotel and not a 5 star hotel, so don't have expectation of 5 star. If this floats your boat keep reading else stop. This is a privately run family business. Good stuff The best location you can get in town. Clean... More
