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

The Protea Hotel, Ikeja was a great base on my recent business trip to Lagos. Impressed with the level of security and service. My room has a great bed, wonderful bath and shower room. The suite had a separate lounge with it's own toilet. TVs in both rooms. It was very comfortable. The restaurant was fine but nothing to write... More

I was in Lagos on business and booked one night at this hotel through Expedia, having spent several days at the wonderful Radisson Blu on Victoria Island.

Tucked in the GRA area of ikeja some 15mins or so away from the international airport, this hotel is simply beautiful. Its slightly more expensive than its cousin in Maryland but my family feels the extra cost is worth it, I differ on that.
