This is the most chauvinistic hotel ever and that is the only reason why i am giving it a 3 star. This is my husband's preferred hotel whenever he is in Lagos on business and i have stayed here with him many times. This time i decided to run a 3 days chauvinistic diagnostic run on the hotel staffers, from... More

I stayed at the Lagos Oriental hotel on a business trip. Check in was smooth, with no problems. Now getting to the room, it was very large but lacked character and soul, just felt very empty with all that space. However, the view of the lagoon made up for this as it was calming. The food was quite nice, I... More

I liked the stay at the hotel. I had a room with a great view at the water body. The rooms were very spacious, too spacious actually. The overall arrangement of the room can be improved as it is difficult to watch TV while on the bed.The bathrooms were immaculately clean. I had ordered a fried rice on one of... More

I had breakfast at this hotel a couple of weeks ago. I was not very impressed. I believe this hotel is rated 4 stars but the service and dining experience was 2 stars. I would expect every hotel to get breakfast right. No smoked salmon, cooked mushrooms, sauces, sausage was only chicken.....the list is endless. They had a few variety... More

I stayed here for 3 nights on a business trip. This was just about the most sparsely decorated hotel I have ever stayed in and along with the scale of the rooms and public areas this gives it all a rather impersonal feel. Room and bathroom were huge and comfortable but rather basic. No wifi in room but cable available... More

Overall Experience – I liked that there was enough parking and the hotel is in a gated space so your car is safe. I also liked that there was electricity the whole time we stayed there. The air conditioning worked the whole time. There was hot water to shower with and the water pressure was decent. On the other hand,... More

Loved the view. The room was massive with huge windows and had an upper floor accessible via stairs with a big bedroom there while the lower floor had a bar area, dining, a small guest bedroom, toilet and living room space. It was clean and the decor n furnishings were lovely.We went for a wedding in the hotel hall which... More

I have stayed here a few times and have always found it to be good value (for Lagos) and all services and amenities are ok as well. The rooms are fairly big with high ceilings (this must be the Chinese influence on the architecture!) and generally, I find this hotel to be a reliable business standard hotel with a distinctly...

I have stayed at this hotel on multiple occasions. We usually stay in a 'suite'. This means top price in order to ensure there is some comfort with the amenities. Trip duration spans 2 days to a week. I have found the facilities to be acceptable when compared to Western hotels but grossly overpriced. Then again this is the norm... More

The Lagos Oriental Hotel is a functional business hotel in Lagos that looks very Chinese in interior design. The hotel takes MC and Visa but not Amex and has two good Japanese and Chinese restaurants in house. The WiFi in room can be very limited but house keeping fixed it using a signal booster. The rooms also offer Internet by... More
