Good ambience for a meeting. Coffee breaks by the pool, fantastic. Especially when you get the feel of waves by the beach, very soothing to a hardworked brain. Evening dinner, superb with a pianist serenading my meals. You wanna know more, spend a night there.

I arrived around 11pm at the hotel and was exhausted, but after being greeted by all the friendly smiles, seeing my very spacious, comfortable room with an enormous shower and a great dinner I not only felt at home, I felt revived.

I've stayed at Protea Hotel VI a couple of times. Absolutely great little hotel and feels homey. The staff is great, it's not far from anything and there's always someone ready to help.

I have stayed at the Protea VI many times over the years and it's a great option for a business hotel in Victoria Island. It half as expensive as the top hotels in the area and it is almost as good. The service levels are now excellent, check-ins are quick and easy, waiters are friendly. The rooms have been refurbished... More

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.

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.

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.
