“horrific, overpriced and with attitude”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2011

Temptingly close to both domestic terminals that you can walk it in 5 mins from the new terminal and only 2-300 metres from the old terminal. However this is a hotel that location as its only recommendation. Single storey, the rooms are laid out along dark corridors, and as always only the superior rooms seem to available when booking. Clean enough inside the noise from neighbouring rooms and outside is constant. We had a trumpet player at 4.00am, rail close by and TV noise.
The retaurant is vastly overpriced and staff who have no interest in serving or dealing with complaints. Both reception and restaurant clearly see guests as interuptions to an otherwise lazy day checking mobiles and watching MTV, and are happy to rinse you for up to £100 with food per day. I really resented this, and the belligerent attitude that pervades this hotel will in no way entice me back, no matter how handy it may be. The building itself and layout is actually not bad and it's a shame that in this location such a potentially useful site that avoids hacking into Lagos should have missed its mark so completely...

Budget traveler, just need to sleep? Then do this one to yourself. If you have options, DONT. Close, almost walking distance to the domestic airport, most taxis will rush to take you there because they pay the taxi drivers. So if u negotiate well, a taxi driver will take you there free and get his "tip" from the hotel. It is literally two minutes around the corner. But that is the only good thing other than there is a late restaurant where you can grab a beer and a meal. Food will be local fare--and sorry but it is for the stomach only--and to avoid starvation. Dont expect to "dine." Rooms are equivalent to a no name brand roadside motel in the USA only with less working amenities. It is a bed for the night...nothing more. And it will cost $100 minimum. Further, if the $100 rooms are booked, the idiot at the front desk (and I hope the manage fires her) will let guests walk away riather than accept $100 for the $110 room...that level of business "sense" tells you all you need to know about this place. You get what you pay for, and they give what you pay for. Avoid this unless you are deadly broke and dont have an option to sleep in the airport. You might be better off just sitting in the restaurant and drinking beer all night and doze off there rather than pay for a room. I am usually a gentle reviewer and this two star rating is more than fair.
