Got the opportunity to stay in this place for the 1st time during my business traveling and the experience I got kept me away from adding this place into my wish list. I found that hotel room is very small, Wi-Fi connection is bad, linen were not proper and taps has murky water all through - out the day. Room... More

Dear Sir, I sincerely apologize for your experience at the Sojourner by Genesis. From the review your last visit was in February 2014, your visit was during the soft opening of the hotel and as such little mistakes would have been made by the staff and hotel during this test running period. We accept our mistakes and quality of service,... More

It was nice to discover this hotel in Ikeja after a very long day. Food was fabulous, had a Thai salad and roast chicken with sautéed vegetables and it was lovely. Bed was comfortable and after a good nights rest I was able to get up early enough and refreshed for my flight the next day.

First, the good points. Excellent gym. Quiet surroundings. A chef from Lebanon who not only really knows his business but is also a good tutor - the steak and chips I ordered was done precisely to my request and was, to be honest, one of the best steak and chips I have eaten anywhere in the world, Paris included.

I only got to spend one night in the Genesis hotel, but It was a pleasant surprise. The rooms are modern, clean and fit the purpose. The bed was very comfortable. The restaurant serves a buffet (or a la card), which was simple but good. The hotel consists of two blocks, split by a big swimmingpool. The pool area is... More

I hosted an event in this hotel for about 50 people. The check in was smooth, fast and efficient. The room was good, clean and soundproof which is a plus considering they had to use the generating set a lot. The conference facilities were ok but the area was understaffed as we had only one person seeing to the IT,... More

Returned to this hotel and now what I found was problems everywere... No hot water, leaks in the shower piping, water leaking under the shower box... All this indicates poor maintenance of the facility. Power outages are way more frequent and it is taking long to recover from them. Total disappointment.
