Stayed here as a guest, on my latest trip to Abuja. The rooms were standard...able to sleep though when the music was toned down. This is a busy hotel and it's noisy. The rooms are adequate and tidy. The breakfast was poor and not up the normal South African franchise enjoys down south. And the restaurant service is extremely slow...eggs... More

I read a couple of reviews and the word "tatty" seems to come up very often. That may have been true in the past but the hotel is going through a complete refurbishment process and the new rooms have nothing tatty about them. (As I write the second and third floor are fully refurbished, the first floor is the only... More

Stayed at this hotel twice now and they are slowly making improvements. Breakfast is quite good and staff very pleasant and plenty of visible security. Rooms are ok, a bit dark and my view was a corrugated roof and a few large gas canisters? A bit too close for my liking! The aircon unit is great but it's unfortunately situated... More

This little boutique hotel is an absolute gem. Small, well appointed, great friendly staff who make it a home from home. Restaurant has great food thanks to Chris the Chef. It is well located but in a quiet neighbourhood. Close to business areas and government departments. I will be back, in fact next week.
