First time I stayed at this Protea, I was taken in by the serenity, and aesthetic functional beauty of the hotel. Every little detail is thought through especially the placement of airconditioners in the rooms . This was in 2008. 2015 and it is still as well maintained as it was then. The staff are polite and exude the real... More

I didn't book this hotel, but I'm glad I stayed here. This stylish hotel augments it's image with 5 star excellent service. My room was clean and tastefully furnished and it's always a bonus to find complementary tea and coffee on hand, plus an efficient room service staff on hand 24/7. This boutique hotel, clearly prides itself on attention to... More

Had the pleasure of staying at the Protea Victoria Island for a short one night, wish it had been more! Don't be deterred by the lackluster exterior or entrance, the inside will truly delight you. Contemporary, comfortable, clean and a phenomenal staff. Rita (the property manager) greeted us with a warmth we hadn't seen in the previous 6 days of... More

Having visited the hotel on numerous occasions I keep coming back for many reasons. The nice and clean rooms, great showers, good food, excellent service, good location and peaceful atmosphere to relax after a busy day/week in Lagos. To me this hotel is almost like a second home in Lagos.

We spent 5 nights here in May and really enjoyed it. Beautiful rooms and staff were great. If we come back we'd definitely stay here. I would recommend the more expensive rooms as we looked at a few and the more you pay really did equal the quality

Overall my experience was fine at the Protea, not brilliant but not terrible. Slightly frustrating that at least once per day my key card didn't work in the door, the bathroom wasn't cleaned every day and several times at reception the staff stood chatting ignoring guests, but as a place to sleep for a business trip it was acceptable.
