The hotel staff were very helpful and do their best however the standard of the accommodation is not what you would expect of a Protea hotel. My colleagues and I experienced dirty, mouldy rooms. On the plus side I had room service which was very good. Good internet connection although power kept going off. Efficient air conditioning. I would look... More

I liked the hotel. It is very small (only 28 rooms) and in the embassy district. Most of the guests seem to be crew of a major european airline. Rooms are spread over three floors and there is a lift. Staff are friendly and plentiful (I saw more staff than guests!). The room was fine, a little rough around the... More

First stay here, hotel chosen by my company. Staff are a total delight. Very happy smiley and helpful. I had room service in the evening. Chicken noodles were tasty and hot. On the down side , room 206 was a bit grubby around the edges. Grout in bathroom needs attention , quite a bit of mold . Long black hairs... More

The best thing about this hotel are the staff. Nothing was too much trouble and they were very friendly and helpful. The security was also good and I did feel safe there. The bedrooms are in very urgent need of a "deep clean" as there was dust and mould all over the place. The bathroom was awful and the sink... More

My room has so much dust behind the furniture I'm shocked. Indeed everywhere you look is filthy . The bathroom has discoloured... More

Small hotel with loads of security everywhere. The restaurant is under some work, so between 11am and 5 pm we can't sleep at all. The room is ok, clean and big enough, quite dated but to be honest we cannot expect much more from Abuja. The breakfast is limited, small. My only big issue with this hotel is the wifi.... More

Nice, cute, conservative hotel hidden in a well manicured corner of the city. Nice beds, lovely rooms, warm staff, but very limited food in the small restaurants. I have stayed here at least ten times within the last four years and never felt the good standards deteriorate. Safety is also not in question here as Maitama is one of the... More

My credit card was skimmed in the reception. The room was ok with Nigerian standards, but very poor with European dito. Expensive (even more so when they skimm your card) but still one of the better hotels in Abuja

When working in Nigeria, Abuja is way more safe than the turbulent south, and if you need government ministries or the big financial institutes, it's the place. The city is (comparatively) new and the infrastructure is better than in Lagos, That doesn't mean it's good, I averaged 8 power outs a day... The hotel is adjacent to the police HQ,... More

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
