I stayed at this hotel for a few nights after arriving in Lagos. It is distinctly hidden away in Omole phase one. The location is central so you can get to anywhere in Lagos pretty much within an hour (if travelling at off-peak times) so very good for local attractions like the fela shrine and so on. Staff were courteous,... More

THE BASICS: This is lodge has a resort feel. I stayed in the standard room which was great. It has American must-haves such as power generator, hot shower from the tap (doesn't require turning on a point of use water heater and waiting), fan (this is to keep the air circulating), and air conditioner. The shower is located in a... More

Finding a hotel (or hostel, had there been one) in Lagos that I could afford was challenging but I'm so glad I booked here. Airport pickup was reasonably priced (although if you've not been to Lagos before, be warned that it can be hard to find people!) and, like most things in Lagos, rates were negotiable. My bed had clearly... More

Visited my favourite Lagos lodging after about 13 months and had to write a review. On arrival, I still got the sense of being in a secure home, the staff were welcoming and very efficient. One of the best features of the lodge is the feeling of being a welcome guest in a home. Paid N11,000 (I think) for my... More

I stayed several days and in several rooms at African Garden Lodge in July and August 2012. The theme of African art is expressed every where in the hotel, from the walkways, to the lobby and the rooms. If you are a lover of art you will find this place interesting. My favorite thing about it is the location and... More

My wife and I stayed for 7 nights whilst doing some sight seeing, visiting family and a little business. It's location is more central than the major hotels on Victoria Island which enabled us to to get to most parts of Lagos within an hour or so. Situated in a safe, walled houing estate,it's a small hotel with 3 bars.... More

As seen on the website www.africangardenlodge.com this place is the real deal, for that superb African experience AGL is the place to stay. I have stayed in many hotels in Lagos none have the unique style or authenticity of the African Garden Lodge. A must try!

I used this hotel as a base while doing some business in Nigeria. Most of the hotels I stayed in during this trip were lamentably bad but this one was different. The staff are very friendly, the food quite good and the rooms spacious and pretty clean. The hotel is small and unobtrusive and feels very safe. It is pretty... More
