It is known to be one of the best hotels in VI but i have realized during my last stay that the hotel will need a renovation soon. The bathrooms especially. In general the rooms are small but the beds ar extra compfy :) the ourdoor area is good and the service is better than average. If you are booking... More

From start to finish I have been blown away by the service of the team at Federal Palace. Over the past 2 weeks I have had the opportunity of staying at The Federal Palace twice in two weeks. I found the rooms to be very comfortable and very clean. Loved the fact that they have a walk/running parth set in... More

The Intercontinental couldn't accommodate me on a prepaid booking so I went to Federal Palace. From the beginning to end it was a pleasant experience. I had chosen not to stay at this hotel in the beginning but I will certainly stay here again because everything worked well and it was an all round good experience.

I founf the entrance hall impressive. The check in was easy. I found the room small, but adequate. I was warned not to eat at the hotel unless I had to. I enjoyed breakfast. Both in room meals I ordered, was not good value and neither was it good quality. Compared to other 5 star hotels, I was disappointed. The... More

This hotel is a gem away from from the hustle and bustle of Lagos city. It's gardens and pool area are one of the few green spots in Lagos and provides that breathe of fresh air that is often needed when travelling in a chaotic place. The hotel is expensive but compares favourably with the other upper end hotels in... More

Had dinner at the hotel restaurant and the food was top quality. Room was great with sea views. Would definitely recommend. Grounds also have a pool and... More

I do not think that this is a 5 star quality hotel and it is certainly not worth the money which they are asking for it. Starting with the booking process, I requested a car pickup and airport “Protocol” service. This resulted in a separate form arriving requesting a lot of personal information (e.g. date of birth) and a photocopy... More

I have stayed in most of the upper end hotels in Lagos. The FP is probably relatively value for money but it feels old and past it's best... It is well located and has a great feel with lawns and channel to the port in front. Rooms small but comfortable
