I stayed here after a local Nigerian friend advised me against my original booking at the Sheraton Hotel in Ikeja. I was happy for the advice as the service has been excellent, with good internet speeds and absolutely excellent food. The buffet selections at breakfast and dinner are extremely wide ranging. The wait staff are very polite and the rooms... More

I frequently stay at Protea hotel, in the Ikeja district of Lagos, Nigeria, but the past few stays have been highly disappointing. I am finding myself constantly calling reception to complain about my room being hot, intermittent power, phone not working, very few channels come in clear, and the internet being very slow or not working at all (it has...

Visited on a business trip. Smaller of the two Protea Hotels in Ikeja, but has a nice feel to the place. Friendly staff, food very good, and gym, swimming pool all nice. Rooms were fine, and bed comfortable. Only thing wrong was the poor water pressure and cold shower. But in this part of the world, its not so bad.... More

Gave 3 out of 5 because of restaurant and bar staff and service, otherwise overall the stay would be a 2. I set the bar very low for Protea hotels in general and Nigeria specifically, and they exceeded in their ability to disappoint. The place is generally in average condition but with the annoyance of always having one or two... More

A very friendly team at the hotel who were focused on providing good service, from the time of arrival right through to departure. The room size, layout and facilities were particularly impressive Also close to the airport and well situated if you... More

One of the nicest hotel on my layover. The staff are friendly, the room is comfy. I like the color for the room decoration, mostly brown- cream and wood. Just improve the electricity, so it don't blackout very often :) i had a nice stay on my first Lagos flight yesterday.

Protea Hotel Ikeja is a nice hotel right in the middle of town. The hotel is close to the airport if you are a frequent traveler. There is wifi access to the internet and the food at the hotel is superb. Value for money is good. Only downside is that the hotel seems crammed in a small location, on a... More

Stayed here with work, big comfortable room with a huge bathroom with a really good shower, staff were friendly and the food was good, only downfall is the fact that you have to pay to join the members club

I met with Derrick (GM) and Jean (Dep GM) during my recent stay in Lagos. We arrived very late from and the Hotel's Shuttle was there to collect us. The GM met with us at the hotel and made us feel really welcome. Really great service from all staff. Plus we still got dinner at that late hour. This is... More
