“Damp and Overpriced”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

I stayed three nights at the Radisson Blu while visiting Lagos for business. The hotel looked decent at first glance, and had some nice views from the bar deck out back, however, it also had a serious problem. During my visit, the hallways reeked of mildew, and my room felt like the inside of a cave. There's really no other way to describe it. The hotel was damp and muggy, and smelled like wet laundry that has been left to sit in the washer for several days.

The Radisson offers rates similar to other hotels in the area, which is to say it's wildly overpriced. The food at the restaurant and bar was alright, but also very expensive. Service was cordial, and the location was convenient for the work I was doing. Unfortunately, I really wouldn't consider staying here again unless they remedy the mildew issue.

It looks as a new hotel. Great lobby and common areas, such as deck bar.
Location is good, river front, but always depends on where you need to go.
Room is average, but nothing to complain about. No amenities, only shampoo and soap. Bathroom has a nice design.
Restaurant is good, and they managed to have gluten free items upon request. I´ve sent e-mails but only after my arrival and talked to the head chef, they provide me gluten free items, especially during breakfast.
Internet was fast, and service overall good.
The cons goes to have not been recognized as a CONCIERGE MEMBER and only got access to the Lounge after insisting at front desk. Not worthy at all. I could say terrible service, but there were no service. No food. Broken printer. Drinks locked and nobody to access.
The highlight is the attention from the deck bar, people works happy and the band during sunset is great!

Room Tip: Ask for the sea front rooms

as a frequent guest at Radisson hotels, I may be a bit biased here but, based on the opinions of others, I was nervous going to Lagos and unsure what to expect so, I was pleasantly surprised by the Radisson Blu Anchorage hotel in Lagos.

The hotel is very well positioned on Victoria Island close to most of the major businesses so is perfectly situated for business travel. I had heard many nightmare stories about hotels in Lagos but the Radisson was clean and the staff were friendly. The breakfast buffet was complete for a healthy breakfast. The staff were friendly and helpful.

If I were to complain about anything? The Wi-Fi did not support Apple iPhone and was slow throughout my stay. I question whether this was the hotel or their ISP.

Good location by the lagoon, nice restaurant, pricey though. rooms look modern. internet connection sucked. dismal breakfast, bath tub was dirty, tiles chipped, room floor had a mark of something that burnt. rooms are not sound proofed. any movement in the corridor disturbed my sleep.staff are helpful, not always though. jetty at the hotel is a plus point for guests who have a boat service to their destination.

Room Tip: choose last rooms at the end of the corridor, to avoid disturbance from other guests. NO sound proof...

I can say that this hotel is one of the best within the Lagos axis. Its got a waterfront, the rooms are clean and spacious. The decor is very lovely, and the service is not bad. They also have a live band at night that liven up the place. Breakfast is a nice buffet. The hotel is p a bit pricey, it would strain your wallet, but it's worth the price. It's also a walking distance to the lagoon restaurant. Generally, I would recommend this hotel to any tourist, provided you have a fat wallet.

Have stayed at this hotel regularly since 2012. The hotel is generally well kept with friendly staff and decent service. The bedrooms are quite clean but the bathrooms are beginning to look very tired. The Voyager restaurant is very good and the range of food on offer at both breakfast and dinner also excellent.
