This hotel charges ridiculously high prices (more than $330/night) for rooms that are shabby and internet service that MIGHT work if you go sit in the lobby, but never worked in my room (a 5 day stay). Hot water definitely was in short supply, as noted by another review. Breakfast is a mind-boggling $38 for a very average buffet. Check-in for 2 people never took less than 45 minutes (we checked in and out more than once due to internal trips in Nigeria), though the staff was always friendly. They just couldn't seem to work out how to get this done faster--probably because of all the other people coming to the desk to ask what happened to their laundry, or why the internet still didn't work. This is clearly a place that knows it doesn't have competition in its area, and thus extorts money from hapless travelers who don't have a choice.
