“Good Hotel and its safe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2011

I stayed in this hotel on my way to warri in Nigeria. The rooms are clean, safe and got all the facilities. There is free wifi available at a very good speed.
The food is also very nice.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2011

I stayed at this hotel over xmas period with friends. We had three rooms. This hotel is more like a boutique style hotel. It is in a large compound with 24 hour manned security gates. The hotel is based in Lekki Phase 1 and the location is perfect if you want to stay in this area, in that you can get out of the Island very quickly without much traffic or having to deal with traffic from VGC, also easy to get to VGC, Ikoyi and other parts of VI.

The rooms were of good standard, clean with king size bed, and double size wardrobes, and TV showing all chanels including sports, news, movies e.t.c. The bathroom is basic (according to Western Standard) but clean. Also you get free wireless internet, so bring your laptop. Theres also free parking. We couldnt believe the cars, Hummer, Ferraris (yes in lagos!) Range Rovers, X5, Muranos, e.t.c seems everyone has a 4X4 in lagos.

The service is amazing, as nothing is too much or too little. Their food is the best food i had in teh whole of Lagos and i tried a few so called really good restaurants, and nothing beats the food of this hotel.

They have an airconditioend gym, and a pool which we didnt use, although it looked tempting, but my family lives round the corner and they have a pool so we didnt swim at the hotel.

The only bad things are there is a church in the building on the other side inside the hotel, and one afternoon i could hear the singing, while trying to sleep. However my friends and family that came to visit went to the church twice whilst we were there. I guess they got seduced by the songs.

Also, laundry is too expensive. I had one blouse ironed and it cost more than buying 3 irons, so bring your own travel iron.

Closeby are so many amazing bars, cafes, restaurants and very hip and cool nightclubs, but be warned, Lagos is expensive.

One other good thing is i felt extremely safe staying here. and would definitely stay there again and recommend this hotel.
