I spent a day and a half at this hotel and was shocked by the attitude of the staff - more so after hearing rave reviews about 'Lagos' most expensive hotel'. I don't think this hotel is worthy of a review but I have to list just some of the issues I experienced: - The banqueting staff refused access to... More

Grand hotel based in Victoria island. If your in Nigeria on a business trip I would definitely recommend it. For those on holiday like myself don’t expect a personal feel however, staff are courteous and friendly. I stayed in a standard suite in the new wing, the view of Lagos lagoon was exceptional. In terms of space rooms are extremely... More

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...
