“Excellent choice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

I live in lagos, Nigeria. I had a meeting in Ibadan late last year and decided to stay at kakanfo Inn. I must say, I am very impressed. From the minute I stepped into the front desk area until check out, was quite a positive experience. The entire staff that I interacted with were very polite and courteous. The bell boy, the waitresses in the restaurant, room service and laundry personnel were all pleasant. kakanfo Inn is now my hotel of choice whenever I am visiting Ibadan. I look forward to my next stay there.

We are British but live in Cyprus. We were very impressed with the hospitality shown to us at the Kakanfo and would recommend this hotel without reservation if you have reason to stay in Ibadon. We stayed in a an executive double which was huge and had plenty of space to entertain our friends (and our 2 year old daughter) when they came to visit us. The hotel room was clean and had running hot water and there were two airconditioners in the room as well as two flat screen TVs with access to BBC world and CNN. When a couple of minor of things went wrong with the shower they were fixed immediately by the technical staff. All the staff were exceptionally polite and friendly and very well dressed, many in spotless traditional African dress. This was old fashioned service at its best - nothing was too much trouble for them. The quality of the food was good, it was freshly cooked and we had the choice of room service (24hrs) or the use of the resturant. We ate from the Indian menu which was as good as you would get in a good quality Indian resturant in the UK. The food was not cheap even by european standards but to get good quality food in Ibadan is the exception rather than the rule so it was well worth paying for it. The helpings were also very generous. There is a service charge added to the bill which resolves the problem of tipping. Parts of the hotel were under refurbishment including the gym and the outside pool area which when finished will add to the attraction of the hotel.

Prices at the hotel are as stated on the website and there is no attempt to charge guests extra. Even the dollar/naira exchange rate given by the hotel was reasonable.

All in all we were delighted with the standard of service and the ambiance of the hotel. Don't hesitate to use it if you are in Ibadan or the surrrounding area. The location is good and due attention is paid to security.

We (my wife & I) have had course to visit Ibadan (ancient city) in the past on many occassions but never expected what we discovered with Kakanfo Inn when we decided to stay there on Dec.18th 2012 on the recommendation of a friend. Our experience from the security personnel at the door to the front desk officers was very electrifying.
The appearance of their staff speaks volume of a brand that any african will be very proud of. Neat, smart and courteous in their traditional attire.
In honesty, we were very proud to be africans. Well, we wouldn't have felt less, going by the experiences in other hotels in various parts of the western world.
Kakanfo is a brand. The meal was very good in taste, quality and quantity. We had our dinner and the dinner inspired us to ask for breakfast before leaving the hotel. Oh mine... we were not disappointed.
The room was very clean and neat. The atmosphere was very quiet and peaceful despite the fact that a part of the hotel is undergoing renovation which one hardly noticed, anyway.
We couldn't leave without promising them to come back anytime we find ourselves in Ibadan.

I stayed at Kakanfo Inn for four nights in February 2012.
It was such a wonderful experience for the staff were
very hospitable and the food was delicious and was of
different varieties from local Nigeria food to Indian, European
and American dishes.
The hotel also provides many facilities such as pool, massage and gym which keeps you
active and engaged.
Last but no the least, it has many world class multipurpose conference rooms for both small and large groups.

I was a guest at Kakanfo Inn for more than five weeks in November/December 2011. The entire experience was truly wonderful - complete facilities including great meals in a very friendly dining room with a varied and delicious menu; clean and inviting pool, massage and gym facilities, and clean, comfortable rooms. The staff was eager to make my stay a pleasure and did so. The adjacent Conference Center was fully capable to host groups from tens of guests to hundreds to nearly 2000 seated for meals. Parking is convenient and security confidence-inspiring. Kakanfo Inn will be my destination whenever I am in Ibadan.

Room Tip: I occupied the same suite during my entire visit, and was highly pleased with it.

I have stayed at this facility on four occassions. Firstly, It is the only hotel in Nigeria with a world class conference center on its premises. It offers Nigerian, European and American dishes and has all the amenities that a busines or group hotel would have in the United States. This is a well run product and brgain for the price when compared to the accomodations in Lagos. The rooms are etremely large and comfortable and the staff is very friendly.

For additional relaation, try the spa and get a quality massage.
