I normally stay at the Hilton in Abuja but a change in company policy finds me here! What a nice experience, the staff are fantastic, the service prompt and they have a real can do attitude. Security is excellent and have really had a relaxing time here. I really recommend this hotel in Abuja. I see there are lots of... More

It's a small hotel that would be worthy of the label 'boutique' if it was a little better presented. The main entrance, lobby bar and rooms are nicely kept but the hallway carpet is tired in places and completely threadbare outside the roof terrace entrance. My room was comfortable, clean and have good airconditioning. Power comes and goes as you'd... More

I paid a whooping 85000 naira to stay in this place. It was horrible. The bathrooms were very dirty,the rooms dusty, had to pay extra for breakfast which was oil soaked and the staff completely out of touch. For a Protea tag on your door? You need to wake up.

This hotel is very small and the facilities are not good. rooms are not clean and look very depressing. the good thing about this hotel is that is safe and the only one around. the food is average and staff are friendly.

When you visit some where like Abuja, the most important thing on your mind is SAFETY. This hotel offers full security, fully secure and fenced complex as well as the location being fairly safe, or as safe as Nigeria can really offer. Baring this in mind my interpretation of areas being dangerous could be different to yours, however I have... More

I stayed here for two nights for business. It seems to be centrally located and in a safe neighbourhood. There was visible security and staff went out of their way to assist us. Room was big enough and very clean. AC worked well and if we had power outages I didn't notice. Breakfast was the full works, and tasty too.... More

This hotel is pretty much as described by others below. And like anything in life, you get out what you put in. I enjoyed my stay but I can understand why those more used to European standards might find it frustrating. Power outages can be frequent (a plug that cuts out when this happens will save your laptop), although the... More

I have a stayed in a number of hotels across the world but this place will stick in my memory. This is small hotel in an upscale part of town on a residential street. During my stay (3 nights) there were no keys. Every time you wanted to get into your room you had to go to the front desk... More

This is a great hotel with excellent customer service. From the moment we arrived at the hotel with the security guards, to the smooth, quick and welcoming check-in process. This hotel really shows that if management really train their staff and motivate their employees that they will attract repeat customers. Small and intimate hotel, location is very secure and very...
