I stayed at this hotel last year on a business trip to Lagos. The hotel was spotlessly clean, the food wonderful and the service impeccable. Nothing was too much trouble and smiles from team members were in abundance. I would recommend to anyone visiting Lagos to use Southern Sun Ikoyi

I can't complain about the hospitality nor service. The room is just about 'fine'. Absolutely not for the price you pay, but then who comes here on their own expense?! Breakfast is ok, normal and comparable for any other hotel worldwide. But my one and biggest qualm I have of this hotel. If you don't have a lunch or buffet... More

Lagos Hotels are horribly expensive - so do not compare this to similar priced hotels in other countries or you will be extremely disappointed. Price aside, the service is excellent, staff are attentive and very friendly, and security is high. Breakfast is excellent with a very broad and high quality selection. The lunch and dinner menus are Lagos hotel prices... More

Very nice hotel, good food , service and friendly vibe in bar. One felt very safe in the hotel with gates well access controlled. A nice touch was having a `guard`/watcher on each floor during the day thus preventing easy access to the rooms during the day. The Business Center was also very helpful.

For service one of the best hotels in the world. Needs to refurbished though. Despite this great staff with a sense of humour. The awesome welcome from the concierge is genuine and now that they wear their native attire is inspirational.
