My team was part of the social media team for #MotyConcert hosted at the federal palace hotel, the staffs and security are OK making you see the value of good hospitality and the hall is not really big but its one of the best event hall on the island.

Clearly the best Casino in Lagos. Good ambience though a bit on the expensive side, if you don't know how to play you would be lost as like in any place in Nigeria the people who are supposed to attend to you would not be looking at any of the customers, you have to make some sounds to get attention(I...

I've been a number of times to Lagos and tried many different hotels. This one is certainly the best so far for the following reasons: - Location by the sea - Nice very large swimming pool - Nice rooms - Good service - Nice terrasse for an evening drink Now there are a few annoying things: - The old hotel...

I ain't sure whether I have reviewed this lovely empire before but Lemie tell you those Peacocks are interesting. I took the liberty of naming them after it took us hours before I could get over my fear. Uzuri and Urembo.

I have stayed in quite a large number of hotels in Lagos over the last couple of months an can't deny that the Federal Palace Hotel is for sure one of the better ones. More expensive as well but for once... it shows off. Everything just "fits" and that is nice. Food was good, room was good and clean... Just... More

I had a very nice stay at the Federal Palace. The rooms are clean and spacious and not too damp considering it's in Lagos. The hotel is also quiet. The staff are very nice abs the food isn't bad. There is no spa which was a little disappointing. All in all I would highly recommend the hotel. The only bad... More

This is part of the Sun International group as a result when you are in the room it has the same look and feel as any other Sun international hotel. The room is comfortable and the breakfast buffet reasonable if you don't mind the same food everyday. The gym is tiny so I skipped it and ran around the hotel... More

As a business traveler I tend to travel worldwide and Lagos is certainly an experience. You want a hotel with some space from the hectic roads and your room. The Federal Palace, though somewhat dated, provides a nice buffer for short strolls and some reflection. The rooms are okay; the beds very comfortable and the restaurant and bar are good.... More
