Check in was smooth although hotel very busy, staff were friendly and courteous. Has an amazing Gym, dinner buffet was delicious. Internet ok, slow in the rooms but the back up connection in reception was fast. Have... More

A secure setting though parking inside the compound was difficult. Check-in was problematic as was check-out. Food presentation not very appealing. Staff not very attentive or helpful. Plugs and lamps in the room faulty and hot water kettle not working but no effort to change either after 3 requests. My room was very noisy. Not a lot of choice in... More

I stayed here in November this year, just for two days. The hotel is conveniently located in a quite and serene residential area in Kano. It seems to be owned and operated by Lebanese Businessmen. It has a lovely reception and check in was very easy and fast. It has a pool area, plenty of open parking and various kinds... More

I recently stayed at your establishment for a number of days (10-15 April). Since I had an early departure on the morning of the 15th April - I wanted to check out on the night of 14 April. This is a very common occurrence world wide. Due to work commitments I was only able to do this at 21:50. The... More

It was my first visit to Nigeria. It was my first experience in a non-drinking hotel (I have stayed in non smoking hotels). The rooms were very spacious and clean. The bathroom was OK -- turning on the corner shower hosed down the entire room and there was no hot water in the morning., The WiFi is free. The electricity... More

I have always stayed in the Prince Hotel when visiting Kano but it has become very expensive. So I tried the Tahir. Spacious rooms, free wifi, and friendly/competent staff at reception. Represents much better value but if important to you, no alcohol is served, unlike at the Prince.

You do not expect this but once the gate opens, you are ushered into a kind of royal driveway where green trees are mounting guard. Each... More

The first thing that strikes you, and then assaults your mind about TAHIR or TGP is the breathtaking and lavish use of space! But once you settle in, the ambience is empowering! It's got amazing facility..the restaurant, friendly room service and the gym..which has got an amazing trainer and then a wonderful manager who humbly prefers to refer to himself... More
