If you want a solid boutique hotel with great staff, nice comfortable rooms & well made food, then the wheat baker is the choice to make. It's located in a quiet part of ikoyi, yeah there are quiet areas in Lagos, the ambience is quite good and for a busy hotel, you don't bump into people unless you want to,

The Wheatbaker is a true luxury hotel in the centre Lagos. Rooms are modern and comfortable, food is excellent and staff are friendly. Gym is well equipped with everything you need.

I am writing this review into the second week of my second stay at the Wheatbaker. The first time was a couple of weeks ago. It was then my first visit to Nigeria, and I did not know what to expect.

Two of us went early one evening for dinner. It's good for couples or quiet business discussions and the food and service was international standard. The wheatbaker is a boutique hotel in Ikoyi close to Banana Island so it's in the most upmarket part of the town and the door reflects all that. Prices are pretty high too but not... More

A beautiful, tastefully furnished hotel located in a quite part of Ikoyi, Lagos. It has some of the most amazing hotel food ever, especially for meat lovers.

This was my first visit - business - to Nigeria (and to the African continent). I must admit that the trip was with some apprehension. And this hotel put me at ease. Clean, excellent service, and well-secured. I would definitely stay here again.
