You cant go wrong staying here. The staff are supppppper friendly. The food is very good especially in the Calypso restaurant. The hotel is very clean and looked really nice even in the hallways. Cant complain about this property and I highly recomend it. I will stay away from the standard room and opt for either the deluxe as those... More

I was on a business trip and stayed here. The general manager Mr. chukri sioufi was very kind, generous and helpful. The hotel was neat and tidy. The owner of the hotel is Lebanese. The food out here tasted great!

Great place. The rooms were clean and tidy. I would have appreciated a kettle and a new bottle of water each day, as is the norm in most hotels. Staff were friendly, helpful and polite. Even when there was a misunderstanding with the bill, the manger was professional and polite. Breakfast and dinner at the restaurant was excellent, although the... More

This hotel is awesome. This is like an oasis in the desert. It is clean, natural and have a superb restaurant. However, additional parking spaces for vehicles and amenities ( like kettle, free internet etc) in the rooms need to be provided

Very happy with the Prince. Comfy rooms, courteous staff, good restaurant, pretty reliable wifi. I would recommend this hotel to any Kano travellers. Only gripes were the very low set shower (no one's that short) and the ill fitting door. The hotel is secure, but the rooms in the Graceland Villas, less so.

Being a predominantly Muslim state and fairly sparse with modern accommodation, I was pleasantly surprised with this little hotel. Friendly and efficient staff, the hotel boasts beautiful gardens which is why I referred to it as an oasis in this something hot and dry region. Wi-fi available for N500 which is okay considering you are in a fairly remote area.... More

This hotel is a series of well maintained 'villa' rooms, with main access to each room from immaculately kept courtyards. The rooms are spacious and clean, with TV, phone, and internet access (N500 per 24 hours). I did find my bed to be very hard and uncomfortable, but that said, I had a reasonable night's sleep, and rested easily in... More

I stayed at the Prince Hotel Kano during one of my recent business trips to the City of Kano and what a surprise it was for me, the hotel is clean, and well managed all the amenities worked. But you have to pay N500 Naira (approx. $3) to use the internet which I gladly declined since I have my mobile... More

This is the first time I stayed in This Hotel. I was told that it is an old hotel but it looks new and the rooms are specious. The staff are well trained and the restaurant offer some good Lebanese food as well. But the main attraction to me was that there is a bar in this hotel which is... More

I visit Kano every 2-3 months and I stay there for 1-2 nights. Everybody is very kind and ready to serve you. For guests who had spent lot of time in West Africa the standards of this hotel are above average. The rooms are big, clean but sometimes mosquitos are more than enough. Calypso restaurant is the only decent one... More
