Myself (white Irish female in 30s) & my partner (black Nigerian male in 40s) stayed at House J Suites twice on our recent trip to Lagos for a total of 4 nights. It was my first time in Nigeria & my partner was worried about security but the hotel was very safe & secure. We paid for the hotel pick up & an armed guard was in the car on both occasions. I had no problem sleeping in this hotel. The pillows are light & felt clean. I brought my own pillow cases & this was the only hotel I didn't feel the need to use them. The restaurant is beautiful. The food is very expensive (as with all hotels) but there is a restaurant across the road, KFC is near by & also a fixed price supermarket a 5 minute walk away which we only discovered on our last day (they sell scoops of icecream upstairs!). We were able to use the swimming pool at the sister hotel, Hotel J, across the road and the pool area was lovely with very nice furniture. Our first room was huge with the biggest bathroom I've ever seen and a jacuzzi bath, but this was just a tease as there was no bath plug so we couldn't use it. Our second room when we returned at the end of our trip wasn't to our liking but they changed us to a nicer room with no problem. There is a small seating area outside where we drank our beers at night & listened to music. We decided to go to the night club across the road on our last night & paid a ridiculous amount of money in only to discover it's a lap dancing club!! So be warned. We had asked many people in advance about the club & nobody mentioned this to us which is strange but we were able to laugh it off as a learning experience. I really love the grey colour scheme of this hotel, it's very classy. The rooms seem expensive but we walked around other hotels in the area to compare prices & all were a good bit more expensive so I would stay in House J Suites again. The hotel has aromatic oil diffusers in the corridors which is a nice touch. For anyone who hasn't been to Nigeria before, when they say that breakfast is included in the room rate they only mean for 1 person. I've travelled to many countries & this was my first time to encounter this but we stayed in other hotels across Nigeria & all only include 1 breakfast, 1 towel, etc. even if you're a couple. It would be useful to state this on the advertised prices so guests are aware of this to avoid any confusion. Breakfast was a choice of eggs or eggs! Seems to be a Nigerian thing too. The menu advertised a glass of wine which I ordered & was told they only sell by the bottle; again this appears to be a Nigerian thing but it would make sense to only have a bottle on the menu & delete the glass option. Electricity was always very quick to return in this hotel & staff were nice & friendly but not overpowering. Overall, a very pleasurable experience & we will definitely stay here again if in Lagos.
