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

Employees of our company constantly travel to Lagos and stay at this hotel. Yes you can see it's not a brand new property, but the hardworking and creative staff make up for that big time!

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. There is a very small pool. Most staff are not friendly aka rude for western standards. Breakfast was a joke, with the smallest selection of food... More

This hotel is not far from the Sheraton Hotel, Ikeja. It's in a very secure compound, and inward checks of cars and people is re-assuring. I have stayed here three times. It's a small hotel, with a small lobby. It's a place to stay if you enjoy quiet and privacy. Its not a place to be loud and be seen.... More
