Lovely, relaxing hotel in a city which is challenging. Reception staff helpful, room large and clean. Pool lovely and refreshing. That said, the food and drink were alarmingly expensive. Very good breakfast

This hotel is clean, the service is good, dining facilities are more than adequate and it's good for both business travellers as well as those on holiday. You tend to get quite a few cabin crew using this hotel as well.

I stay at the Federal Palace every time I come to Lagos given the proximity to our office. With every stay, things get better. The latest addition of the tray of 'welcome cakes' in your room on arrival is a great touch! Keep that up! And a stocked mini-bar is also a welcome addition. I have also noticed that they... More
