House of Awele on Olayinka Omololu street, Victoria Island, Lagos is no longer open to the public, according to my sources. This is such a pity! No doubt the company that took it over were seduced by its charms.

My cousins iPod also went missing the day after, very unfortunate because the place is nice, peaceful and hidden but the staff there are very disappointing, the... More

I recall when last I stayed at this hotel in July. There was some re construction going on and the place was quite noisy and dusty. I complained to the management and they apologised and said they were trying to beautify the small boutique hotel and make it more endearing to its loyal clientele. I ventured in staying there for...

What a relief to be welcomed by such friendly and helpful staff after a tiring trip of about three hours from the international airport. Your first impression is the clean and organised entrance hall. The sitting room and well-arranged dining room with its need bar. Everything in its place and very clean. The second is the quick check-in not the... More

The hotel is a chic, boutique hotel tucked away in a noise proof area of Victoria Island, perfect for business without the hustle of big hotels and their lobby activity. The staff are nice and will take care of you in a personal way. Their laundry service is exceptional Catering is homely and they will cater to your menu needs... More

I have had the pleasure of spending a few nights at the House Of Awele since my last review and I'm pleased to note that the facilities and service are still excellent. Maintenance of both infrastructure and standards is often a problem with many hotels however House Of Awele is demonstrably in a class of it's own in this respect... More

My wife and I spent a night at this hotel following a long trip from the US. We were impressed right away with its ambiance, facility and service. Front desk staff was delightful and checked us into our room in a snap. The suite we booked was clean and all resources were beyond our expectation; including the welcome drinks. Dinner... More

I had the pleasure of staying in the House Of Awele and was very impressed with the facilities along with the warmth and professionalism of the staff. The hotel is ideally located in VI close to the business district of Lagos but set in a quiet cul-de-sac thus guaranteeing a very quiet and restful night. The food was top notch... More
