I stayed 3 nights here on my first trip to Lagos. Safe and secure with plenty of security to make first time travelers to Nigeria feel really safe and welcome. Centrally situated to my business destinations and main city businesses. Staff are friendly, especially reception - waiters on the quiet side but still pleasant and helpful. Wi-fi free for guests and worked immediately with no hassles during my stay. Rooms are well equipped for business needs. Clean, with great shower and bath. Aircon is a must here, so was pleasant to find a really cool room and Aircon worked well throughout stay. Even with power outages, hotel would kick back on immediately - I'm assuming generator. Breakfast was a little on the light side with a limited offer on cereals and yogurts, but had a full offering of the usual hot, fried breakfast fare. Poached eggs were done to my satisfaction. The surprise was the prawn curry I ordered in my room one night - not typical Indian style, but rather a Thai type of prawn curry. Was excellent! Nice pool area for those who want to enjoy a poolside cocktail. No gym.

If you use a little bit of street savvy, Lagos can offer you a number of unique experiences. It has more night clubs and live music than just about any other West African city and is chiefly known for its music. The late Fela Kuti came from an outer suburb of Lagos. Sunny Ade, king of juju music, still calls it home as does the Afro-reggae specialist Sonny Okosun. Sunny Ade's club,Ariya Night Club, is in Yaba and is worth a visit - as is the open-air Jazz 38 where, if you've had the foresight to bring your own musical instrument with you, you might score an invitation to jam with the band. ... more less
