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.

The Federal Palace Hotel is one of the oldest luxury hotels in Lagos (probably in Nigeria). Refurbished in recent times, it is now a cool & calm oasis in the midst of this hustling & bustling city. Great swimming pool area, nice rooms, good restaurants and onsite casino and a whole lot more.

Very secure and peaceful hotel in the busyness of Lagos. Everything you need done is taken care of by friendly staff. Casino and gym available. The view from the rooms of harbour from the island it's unbelievable that one is in Lagos.

Sun International has hidden a wonderful casino in the old wing of Federal Palace Hotel and have a kitchen and restaurant befitting of royalty. The compliment breakfast is really worth coming down for in morning.

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
