This place is a dump. Only stayed there because we were misguided and other hotels in town were full due to a conference. This is a 1.5 star place at best. Wifi and AC did not work. They were nice enough to give me a standing fan though and had very firm beds which I liked. Breakfast was horrible and... More

Despite its convenient proximity to Abuja's International Conference Centre, the Chelsea is disappointingly tired and in need of updating and a good cleaning. Carpets should be replaced, there were no batteries in the room safes; some of the electrical outlets and lights in my room did not work. There was a foul odor in the corridor, and some guests were... More

Popular with the military top brass, we were put in this hotel because it was judged to have robust security. It was quite fun seeing all the high-ranking officers in their dress uniform one evening as they assembled for a dinner. The buffets at breakfast and dinner have fresh, good quality food on offer, but are definitely more geared to... More

Very friendly staff trying to serve in a good way. Average breakfast. But the rooms definitely need a brush up. The location is not too bad. They do have a small pool and gym. Enough to do some workout.

Not a bad place at all. Friendly reception staff. Everyone doing their best - even the wifi guy who does his best to keep things going. Wifi fine at weekend but when a conference comes calling....! Liked the bar snacks at the pool - and a reasonable price. The rooms could do with a bit of maintenance e.g. a well... More

MAYBE 2.9? The Chelsea has the mod cons and good security, a must in today’s Nigeria. Their modest breakfast offerings have much to be modest about. TV is OK, though they lack the BBC. Problems: 1) Sporadic connectivity. Sometimes the wireless works; sometimes, the LAN cable. Sometimes, neither. 2) Mostly cold water in the shower 3) The restaurant and room... More

At the start not good, many complaints but the guest relations lady seemed to get most things sorted within 24hrs, even a free bottle of red wine. The Wifi is better when in the lobby area than in the room but when in the room especially floors 4 & 5 use the cable, still seems a reasonable speed for Nigeria... More

The best thing about this hotel is the friendliness of front desk and restaurant staff. But as for the management, they have no clue how to run a hotel. They seem to have a lot of 'no' policies but don't hold your breath waiting for anyone to tell you what they are; it's when you need an iron, or a... More
