Once again welcomed and looked after by the staff in this great Hotel in Lagos. The food on offer is plentiful and more than enough to please all. The rooms are well laid out and the beds/bedding first class, an observation is the bathroom fittings are in need of service and some previous repairs should be completed in order not... More

I stayed here for 4 nights during a business trip. The location is good (in the heart of the Island), but you need an experienced taxi driver who really knows town to get you there easily which was not a problem for me. They were installing an ATM machine right outside the hotel on my arrival,so hopefully it is up... More

I actually live in the outskirts of Lagos but I spend my weekends at The Blowfish Hotel. The rooms do vary in size but they are clean and comfortable. The new wing behind the pool is my preferred room and the bathrooms are quite nicely appointed with large showers, (the rain showerhead is a nice touch). However, the reason to... More

I stayed three times in the Blowfish in Lagos. The hotel is in Victoria Island, the safest part of the city. The staff is young and very friendly. When you get there the second time, they remember you. In my case even by name. The hotel has nice rooms with free Wifi. The best rooms are in the new building... More

First locating the place was not easy for the cab driver! Stayed here two times for a few days on business each time.The rooms vary in size. They are not to spacious, but clean and comfortable. Surprisingly there was no tea or coffee making facility in the room. Small bottled water was supplies along with bathroom amenities. Room service was... More

This gorgeous boutique hotel is my personal and favourite spot in Lagos, "it has everything" is an understatement, the architecture and interior is colorful and cozy and you could spend a whole day there without feeling it, whether it be by the pool, at the famous Italian restaurant 'La Veranda' or at 'Purple' in the lobby, the service is extremely...

Stayed here on business for 12 days and can say that it makes the difficulties experienced elsewhere in Lagos that bit easier to overlook. Excellent rooms, food and service. Gym is not on the premises but the security staff will walk you back and from the gym located 50m down the road. Full access to good quality wifi. An excellent... More

We have stayed here 4 times while on business in Lagos. I'd recommend the rooms in the back, as they are more spacious. Try to avoid a room right over the parking lot, as it can be noisy. The pool is pleasant, as is the poolside pizza restaurant. I'd recommend this to someone who is tired of cookie cutter chains.... More

When visiting Nigeria many people will be picky while booking a hotel; safety, clean rooms, good food and comfort will definitely be appreciated more here than in other places of the world. I must admit I was a little unsure about the fact I could not be booked in a well-known chain like Radisson Blu as where I'd stayed before.... More
