I stayed there for 3 months for business. The staff is very friendly and housekeeping does a good job. The bar was always understaffed but friendly. Nice pool. The restaurant has a decent menu and it was always prepared well. The place is showing it's age and the rooms are pretty bare. Comfortable enough for a business stay. The area... More

The first impression I got was a good and lasting one, I guess It rubbed off on every other thing. the reception was very warm and effective, my room was neat and the food was really tasty and affordable. The two nights I spent was worth every amount I spent.

I have stayed here twice and will go back next time in Calabar. The rooms are clean and adequately serviced, as usual the finish of the bathrooms could be better but this is a problem with most middle of the road hotels in Nigeria. Having said that the shower over bath was good and never ending supply of hot water.... More

I checked in after making a phone reservation. The hotel is located along a major highway, quite accessible for people doing business in the city. Front desk service was prompt, and there is ample parking space. Wifi is fairly good in certain areas of the hotel. NIce pool, gym is just OK too. Bathrooms were just OK too, though I... More

The Service in AXARI is unacceptable for a Hotel like that. Especially in the pool bar area. every evening you must wait for a long time that someone is coming to serve you!! Nobody of their Service employee is really interested to do their Job. And when your drink is served you are forgotten. You as a guest have to... More

This is Nigeria. You are never going to get perfection or real value for money. But compared to most hotels in Abuja, this is pretty good. Clean, spacious rooms; wifi; a well kept pool and the best hotel food I've eaten in the country. OK, so the reception staff can be surly, there is noise from the main road outside... More

I stayed at the Axari calabar with some friends from the 25th to 28th August 2013. We had booked three rooms and a suite but had to cancel the reservation for the suite ahead of our travel because the fourth person could not travel. The rooms were niece and neat except that my room was close to the generator which... More

Thank you for the review. The points raised were duly noted. I apologise for the delay in the refund, but the refund was paid back one week after you checked out from the hotel. The delay was due to the banking reforms. The hotel is working towards making sure that refunds are paid back automatically. Thank you More

Rooms that face the swimming pool get a nice view but can be a bit noisy because of the bar. Wi-fi and electricity are reliable compared to the city average. Location is a somehow far from dowtown, which means you may miss some of the town action.

I've stayed in many hotels in Calabar during business trips from Lagos, and this hotel is way ahead of the supposed "International standard" hotels in Calabar which attract double the room rates of Axari. The rooms are well kept, the showers work, tastefully furnished, and a TV service to cater for local and international visitors, good international food menu at... More

Stayed at the Axari Hotel for three nights in May 2013. I was in Calabar for a conference. Nice comfortable hotel. I had a suite overlooking the pool, which was nice, but my room seemed to be close to the generator and so it was quite noisy at night. The bed was very comfortable though, so slept well in spite...
