This is one of the oldest established hotels on the Island. It still retains this old charm and character. There is a recent addition to one part of it that gives it a new and modern ambience. We checked a colleague into the room. It was clean, spacious and comfortable. It costs about $500 USD per night. We made use... More

I was in rush to enter my car after the driver came up the car port. This was precisely at 9:55 a.m. Local time (GMT +1) on the 8th of December 2014. I suddenly went down on my back and buttocks as my legs suddenly slipped forward. I took stock of what happened and observed a bevel on the tarmacadam... More

I stayed at the Federal Palace on business from Nov. 9th to 14th and had a fantastic stay. Great room, great swimming pool, great service from all staff in all areas, housekeeping, reservations, car booking, restaurants etc. The location is also ideal. There was only a slight misstep when I settled my bill. My card was rejected due to a... More

I am in Lagos conducting customer service training and happened to stay in the Federal Palace Hotel. My staff made the right decision. We have stayed in a number of Lagos hotels and have to say FP is the best so far. The customer service in FP far exceeds what we usually receive. The Internet was not as strong as... More

Amongst all the good hotels and places to stay in Lagos, this is by far one of my favorites. The bedding is very confortable and the rooms are quite spacious, the lobby área is vast and very welcoming as well as the check-in facilities (no a counter but rather a private desk), then the food at the restaurant is great...

I was very pleased with all the staff and management. Everyone was very kind, pleasant, and helped me to feel at home. The food was very good at all meals, and if I ever desired something that was not on the menu they were eager to accommodate. I was very impressed with the chicken curry, and asked the chef for...

I've stayed at the Palace several times. The rooms are good. Water view (request it) is great. Breakfast is incredible but pricey -$35. Wonderful pool - huge, water slide. Kids love it. Good gym and game room for kids. And the view from the balcony on the back side of the restaurant is gorgeous. Apapa ports, container ships sliding past... More
