Prefer Wheatbaker and Intercontinental. Better food options, nicer gym with better rooms at these other hotels. FP does have a quick and painless check in. Expensive which is the norm in Lagos. Would stay here if i had kids though as it has a good pool with slides.

There kitchen doesn't close and the chef was so friendly. The outdoor exercise area and the clean pool make my stay even more enjoyable. The wifi works all over the expansive ground and in the rooms. The beautiful rooms with great river views adds to the reasons i will go back there again. On a hot day ask for a... More

I have visited the Federal Palace hotel many times since the reopening and at one time basically lived there...this is the very best with customer service. The staff are extremely friendly and have been target for poaching by most of the hotels in Lagos. It has a superb foyer, casino and pool club that can compete with the best standards.... More

The hotel is in good shape and has an excellent view of the Atlantic Ocean; this can be savoured from the well-kept courtyard; though the peacocks at the courtyard seem to give a better welcoming smile than the reception staffs.

I like big hotels, but often find you can sort of get ignored in ne. But that isn't the case with Federal Palace. The service is great, the rooms are clean, and the have an awesome buffet lunch. Our room wasn't the biggest, but it was comfortable and perfectly adequate. There is a nice family pool on property and the... More

I went back to the Federal Palace after a few stays in other hotels and I still think it's the best option for Lagos. Easy check in, friendly staff, good food and lovely grounds. The Wi-Fi works much better now as well.

A great hotel that offers a calm and tranquil atmosphere. It has an excellent pool complex with slide. Shade was in short supply around the pool as the sun parasols were ineffective. The free crazy golf looks great fun but it was too hot for us in the sun. Also the out door fitness stations were well maintained. The hotel... More

The first time i walked into Federal Palace Hotel, I thought, this simply has to be the most beautiful hotel in Lagos and I MUST shoot here! Being a film maker I always have my eyes peeled for great locations. We approached the General Manager, Mr David Kliegl with a full on presentation and shaking in our boots because we... More

The hotel has a wonderful ambience and serenity. In a city that is characterised by lots of noise, you'll wonder about the quiet environment at the hotel. The service was excellent. I enjoyed the fine dining. I'm going back soon to enjoy those steaks again.
