Good food. Internet is available for a token. Quiet! friendly service but I think they can do better and then we can compare them to Hotels in other parts of the country. Best place to stay when visiting Kano.

This is a regular haunt for many expats and Nigerians and while not perfect is generally pretty good by Nigerian standards. Plus points are that it serves alcohol (although not particularly cheap) where most hotels in Kano do not. Second is the standard of the rooms, although small is OK (beds not very comfortable) and they are kept clean. The... More

Keep in mind you are in Nigeria! Rooms are kept clean and sizes are ok. Bathroom is clean but I not had really hot water for shower. Poer cuts are normal in this area. Hotel has an generator so you are always just few minutes without power. Internet is available but not free and the speed is very slow. I... More

This should be a really good hotel. It isn't. While the hotel is pleasant and clean, the customer is definitely not king. Food is particularly disappointing. It should be easy to cook a fried egg but mine was probably the worst I have ever had - and that's an achievement - but consistently so each morning. The restaurant food was... More

I have been staying at the Prince since 2005. This time (March 2015) I wondered why we all bother with the place. One night, I ordered room service which never arrived. I called to check and there was no answer. I also got I'm pretty sure it was the restaurant food, though I can't prove it. (The food didn't seem... More

I have staid in this hotel in February 2008. The hotel was very nice, breakfast was good, rooms large and clean and I felt safe due to the guards all around hotel. At that time it was a very good place to stay in Kano.

Accommodation in this charming hotel is offered in various forms from the main block to chalets and cottages in a well-maintained garden setting. We had a cottage with a large reception room, kitchen and two bedrooms. The rooms were comfortable without being luxurious. My only complaint would be that a hotel of this standard/price range should provide free WiFi and... More

Prince Hotel is nestled in a quiet,safe corner of the northern Nigerian city of Kano. It is clean and very well maintained. The best thing about its maintenance is the attention given to keeping the environment green and serene. The staff are great and the rooms, especially the Villa and Suites are spacious and neat. The only downside is the... More

We have a company rate at Prince hotel so I stayed there for a few nights on a recent trip to Kano. It's clean, quiet, and very well maintained. The staff are friendly and grounds calm. The restaurant is so-so as the menu is limited and the service is quite slow. Other than that, this is a great place to... More
