“Greatly Improved”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

Eko suite hotel
Wifi vouchers not at reception. Have to go to business center
Bath tub old. Whole bath room Could do with refurbishment
Room neat and well furnished
One device on wifi at a go
No wifi access in sky bar
Shower or bath in darkness. No light on side of bathtub
No master switch for lights. Have to switch off 7 switches


I last stayed at Eko Hotel sometime in 2005 and was expecting to find lots of fault based on my experience then when I had to move from one room to another multiple times due to damp carpets. However, the only thing I can find fault with now is the wifi connectivity which leaves a lot to be desired, the fact that you can only get wifi vouchers at the business center and you cant connect more than one device at at time. Nearly impossible to get wifi connectivity anywhere other than at the main reception where its very good. Very poor or almost non existent connectivity in Sky bar and at the bars on the ground floor. The carpets are mostly gone and rooms are simple but tastefully furnished with comfortable beds. The bathroom gives the impression that it could do better with a bit of refurbishment (esp the bathtub in 601) and the light in the bathroom doesn't cover the side of the bathtub so it's like having a bath in the dark. Food at Sky was great. Can't really complain in general but poor wifi, broken socket in room 601, stained bathtub and fridges at the Sky bar that need to be held shut by pieces of cardboard take away a lot of positives in this very large hotel complex that has greatly improved over time. Could also do better with one master switch in the room instead of the 6 different switches needed to turn off the lights.

The Eko location, by the sea, is great. The hotel complex being furthermore large, it helps foreign travellers feeling less "trapped" if they do not want to go outside by night. So when I was told I'd be staying at the Eko, I liked the idea. And my first contact with the hotel was nice, the reception area being outdoor (of course protected from the rain).
Check-in was smooth. I got a room almost at the top of the hotel. When getting to my floor though, I found the corridor very faded. The door of the room was quite loose (although it locked well). The room was very oldish. While the bed was all right and the bathroom somewhat refurbished, I had the overall impression it was 30+ years old (i.e. from the late 70s when the hotel was built). The windows wasn't furthermore closing properly. Quite poor.
The swimming pool is large and nice.
Breakfast was all right with lots of choice, by the pool. I had furthermore a couple of dinners there, at the Sky restaurant on the top floor (see my review there: http://www.tripadvisor.com/Restaurant_Review-g304026-d4507287-Reviews-Sky_Restaurant-Lagos_Lagos_State.html) and one by the pool (Italian buffet - quite average).
Wifi all right for Nigeria.
Good service.
All in all, I'd probably stay elsewhere next time I'll be in Lagos.

Room Tip: High floor, seaview

The hotel & decor is pretty old and needs some attention. All the staff is very friendly but not very efficient, had trouble checking in and out - and you have to ask staff a couple of times before it gets done. Rooms are loud and bathroom leaks water from the shower. Lots of power cuts but that is probability the norm for Lagos. The food was pretty good, nice variety for breakfast and very good pizza! WiFi is good but you need to buy vouchers.

An average hotel - large and quite impersonal. Good selection of restaurants in its defence, with quite decent pizzas, but a bit soulless and dated / worn, and has definitely seen better days.

The Internet worked, which was a happy surprise, but I suspect there are now better options in Lagos with the arrival of Intercontinental, Southern Sun et al.

I have been there in July 2013 for one week in this hotel due to business trip. What was surprised for me is the relativly high quality of the service - I had no any issue regarding booking procedure (it was nice the welcome drink at the beginning). Room has been cleaned and fully furnitured including flat TV, the same about bathroom. I had view to the swimming pool and the sea side and I was satisfied. Breakfast is in the European/American style and dinner is the same (you are able to test the local specialitiest but be prepared that's really spicy).. Super is the bar to be used for meetings with the friends. Connectivity via prepaid WiFi is stabil without any issue (little expensive). Of course there are a lot of space to be improved that's why I thing the cost could be cheaper.

Room Tip: To ask for the view to swimming pool and non smoker room or floor.

Had a nice time.. though a little bit too e pensive for the services rendered. Bathrooms had the tendency of getting water clogged and room service took too long to arrive. Excellent view out the verranda thou floors should hv been less slippery. Main building is alittle too close to the generator building
