Most of the staff including security staff very friendly and helpful. Had room on 2nd floor, a bit odd room numbers are 300 plus. Getting into elevator it was confusing that there is no 3rd floor button. Room pretty nice only down side was that the only working air conditioning was in the lounge area of room. So had to...

Bad. Filthy, smelly rooms. Rooms facing the streets are very noisy. Bad breakfast, bad dinner with same limited choice every night. Internet doesn't work. Front desk people rather unfriendly. The pool area reminds me on a prison. Very bad experience!

Good Day JimLeonard1, We have received your comments on TripAdvisor. Thank you for your input. Could you kindly advise us which dates specifically you stayed with us and perhaps the correct name as we can't find your stay on our system. We also don't recognize the photos posted. Could it be that it was perhaps a different hotel? Kindly forward... More

Stunning rooms, the photos don't do it justice. It was one of the nicest rooms I've stayed in, especially if you are on a business trip and you don't plan to leave the hotel. The shower was huge, I felt so comfortable in my short stay. The staff were welcoming upon arrival, but upon check out, the woman at the... More

Hotel appeared clean, rooms were of good size and bed also. Bathroom was nice with big shower. What disappointed me was there was no iron or ironing board facilities. Calling up housekeeping and 1.5hrs later still waiting for the ironing board and iron. Ended up leaving without ironing my shirt. Gym is pretty old and dated and the pool is... More

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

I have recently stayed at this hotel and was really impressed by the rooms, the restaurant and bar. 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
