From 10 Nov to 17 Nov two associates and I stayed at the hotel. Very convenient location for business with the Lagos government. High security and extremely attentive service.

This hotel is excellently located, being only a short walk from the Ikeja City Mall, where Rhapsody’s is to be recommended for surf and turf and good draft beer. The rooms are clean and the beds comfortable. And the club sandwich in the bar is fine. The first time I stayed here I had to share a room with a... More

I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights between June 12 and June 14 2013. The hotel is a clean and well managed. The waiters at the bar and in the restaurant are very friendly and try to make you happy. The room was clean but the airco was very noisy. I had to cut the power during night. The... More

This relatively new hotel is good for the business traveller being located in the business district and quite close to all the state government offices. Its attractions are the proximity to the new Ikeja shopping mall, the local and international airports and the Lagos Ibadan Expressway. Unfortunately this makes it a noisy location for a person traveling for leisure or... More

It's a nice hotel and well decorated. I love the city view from the room, which is always a nice alternative to the always problematic TV channels (I've been to this property at least three times). Hotel is clean and there's very easy access to transportation- if you don't want to use the costly ones provided by the hotel. Food... More

Tough place to stay and do business as internet is spotty. The shower pressure is terrible and literally had to take military showers every day. The food is below average but there is a saving grace to this property. It is located right next to the Ikeja mall. The mall has a great restaurant called Rhapsody, South African owned. Great...

Anyone expecting Western standards in West African hotels is likely to be disappointed (unless you've very deep pockets). I recently spent 9 weeks in the de Renaissance, so good and bad points. Don't stay above the 3rd floor - the water pressure doesn't make it. My room was large and well cleaned every day ( except for the window sills).... More

The manager and his wife creepily sit in the lobby as one of the reviewers mentioned and watch as the front desk staff flat out refuse to address any problems/ issues of concerns to their guests/clients.
