“Quite good.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

Had a two day layover after encountering flight difficulties. Check in was smooth, meals and services were prompt with courteous staff. Bearings and sleep quality was good. The red light district is just in front of the hotel though outside it's gates. Overall a good place to stay. Will definitely stay again.

Good place to stay if you are flying in and going somewhere west or north of Lagos. Best option as airport hotel, even if ti si 20 mins drive. Otherwise long way from facilities.
Rooms spacious and clean, restaurant adequate ( good by Nigerian standards ! ), bar was open but deserted. Most importantly you feel safe.
Price was not expensive by Lagos standards

Room Tip: No issues noticed

First of all, safety is first priority in city Lagos, therefore if you are safe do not worry about cleanliness, breakfast, staff etc. The hotel is not close to the airport, approximately 20-25 minutes driving distance. When you enter at the hotel, you see that you are in a safe place isolated from city. Probably one of the biggest building in the city, mainly constructed for foreigners. Sleep quality is ok, paprika, pepper, cinnamon type smell in the room, clean bath but dirty towels, clean but light smelly pillows. Has internet but with fee, safe box as well.
What to bring; bring a device plugged in to electricity to keep you from mosquitos, bugs. Do not open windows, careful about other animals. Apart from that, the hotel is ok. Lastly two parallel flat pins with ground pin converter for your electrical devices like laptop, charger etc.

Stayed in this hotel for a 4-day retreat by the senate of a post graduate college. The rooms are adequately roomy, clean with efficient room service. The hotel is in a spacious ground in the Festac/Agboju Amuwo area of Lagos, Nigeria. There 2 approaches- one from the Festac axis and the other from the mile2 / low cost axis both fully functional. The buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner were quite rich with reasonable range of continental, African, Asian and other exotic options. Very nice food indeed. Beautiful art works adorn different arrears of the hotel with shops and a bank in-house. However the bar service is a little bit on the expensive side compared to other hotels in it's cartegory. There are no nearby eateries or cafes thus the need to take a taxi if you require out of hotel services. I will happily stay in this hotel again when I visit that part of Lagos in the future. All in all, sweet experience.

Room Tip: Choose a room overlooking the pool area and the canal behind it. It is about the best view.

Wow, a place so unlike what you find in Nigeria. This Hotel is one of the best i have come across in terms of service in Africa so far. This hotel is fairly new property located in a not so urban a location but it is better than all those i have heard of from people i met on my way to nigeria. There is so much negative being talked about the service levels, hygiene, expensive accommodation that finding a good hotel has become an act of god.
I wish this hotel would help arrest the negativity and would help the nigerian hospitality industry get back on track.
The meals cost are on the higher side and I thought i could have tried different places on the island instead of having it in the hotel but the traffic would not permit me to do so.

Room Tip: Up...Up towards the pool if you want to have some entertainment! Two quick suggestions: Drink bott...
