That hotel has a soul. And its shown in every corner. Old books are placed on high shelves reaching up to the ceiling. Books are different and depending on your interests, select what you're interested in and read it while lying on a lounger by the pool. On Valentine's Day I got a red rose. So lovely gift! Thank you!... More

I've been traveling to Lagos for 15 years and nothing can beat the Protea Leadway in Ikeja for personalised service, excellent food and location. All guaranteed by the personal attention to detail that the GM Dean Ogilvy and his team give. Don't bother trying anything else, but book early.

I stayed here in January 2015 while I was in Lagos on business. This is a great little hotel, cool, calm, peaceful. Has everything you'd want. Really relaxing if you've been out in the city all day. All very clean and safe. Staff are friendly but not OTT. The lady who'd handled my booking came out from the office to... More

I spent a night here in December 2014. I have done so before but didn't bother to review this place. The serene is ok, the room is nice. I love the vent spreading noiseless cold air into the room. The bed is soft and makes sleeping a paradise for dreamers......

Very very nice service, always polite and helpful. Delicious food in the hotel restaurant.. Although, internet connection in the room is reconnecting very often. But they do apologise for inconvenience and try to repair it.
