The hotel is small but very clean and have beautiful cosy rooms. Their seafood is amazing too. Good for a night or 2...I'd definitely go back. Their bar too or sitting out by the pool is lovely for a chilled evening.

I haven't yet found the ideal Lagos hotel for business but I'm sure that I will it isn't the Protea Isaac John Street Ikeja. Some elements of this hotel were astonishingly terrible i.e. at almost £300 per night for a room for 6 nights, the hotel staff were very defensively stingy about bottled water. They resolutely held back from providing... More

This smaller hotel in Africa offers a truly welcome change of the "normal" African hotel scene of outdated 4-5 star chain hotels and dodgy beach resorts. The hotel is almost to be considered as a Boutique hotel in Africa. Only three floors high, with exceptionally clean rooms and bathrooms with clean and hot water.( Africa travelers will know what I... More

I have stayed at this hotel four times now whilst away on business. My employer previously accommodated me at The Sheraton across the street, but took a new contract with this hotel a few years back. I love the Protea. I spend a lot of time in Africa and this has to be one of my favourites. The staff here... More

I landed in Lagos at about 9pm and took a sixt taxi to the Protea Hotel Ikeja. The welcoming was very warm and the rooms on the second floor are extremely big. The suits are very nicely designed and I love the open bath tub. There is an outdoor pool and you can go outside for a smoke. I did... More

Three nights here for a seminar, comfortable rooms, reliable wireless, good electric back up when the power failed, ok food in the restaurant (enough fresh salad to be useful), adequate security ... not at lot of ambience, but just fine for a business trip.

Stopped here when rotating in and out for work. Really great food and a well stocked bar but can be expensive, make sure you ask the price of spirits before drinking. Rooms clean and comfortable, and we'll laid out. Place is secure and well guarded.

Good hotel, close to airport, with many expats. Rooms are relatively small but comfortable. Beds are exceptionally good. Internet quite slow, many power cuts.Bathroom ok, but no hand shower. Air conditioning noisy. Breakfast is sufficient but not outstanding. Personnel is diligent and friendly. There is a small but nice sports room, all in a quiet area of bustling Lagos.

When you have to choose you don't have several option therefore you have to pay at least USD 300 for bed & breakfast. Concerning the rooms they are decent and clean and they do buffet for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Its also secure for those who have security concerns
