If you want to hide from the hustle and bustle of Lagos, this is the hotel to be. Tucked in a side street off ikeja, the hotel, though medium sized is well designed. I loved the brick wall that separated the bathroom from the main room, I love hotels that pay attention to details and they definitely did with a... More

From pre-arrival to post-departure my team and I were very well-treated in this comfortable, secure, and pleasant environment. We felt very valued and this property has become our "go-to" hotel in Lagos from here on out.

The hotel is rather small but cozy. The staff is very kind and friendly. Always ready to assist in a professional manner. ( Kingsley was very nice, approachable, smiley and easy to talk to. He has demonstrated a very good customer service) I recommend this hotel who look for a intimate atmosphere . Ps.The place is very safe.

In over 25 years of my traveling experience I can say, I have seen most of it. This hotel was booked for me by 3rd party and I did not have any expectation whatsoever.

I agree with the consensus sentiment: this hotel generally exceeds expectations. It's not a five-star, to be sure, but the facilities are surprisingly good. The standard King I stayed in was clean and well laid out. The location, for a business hotel, was good: close to the airport in busy Ikeja but nestled in a quiet street off the main... More

I travel frequently on business, necessity dictates that often it is to stressful locations. When I am in Lagos it is comforting to be greeted with a smile (sometimes by name), in a safe, secure environment with all the comforts of home. The Staff are awesome, led by a strong Management team that personally talks to guest. I strongly recommend... More

Maybe this hotel was good when just built. Now it needs heavy work. My room was big but was way run down. I couldnt close the bathroom door. Furniture and bed linens were old.
