Visited for a night, work trip Decent breakfast buffet, omelettes/ eggs made to your liking . Several juice options , and fresh fruit. Not bad for Nigeria ... Staff are friendly and very helpful... Porter assisted with my bags up several flights of stairs. Rooms are decent size with good AC, and modern Bathroom amenities are ok.

The security is well administered and the security guards polite. The hotel is in need of a makeover. The beds are the hardest that I have slept on. Normal issues such as not able to regulate the position of shower heads, electricity brown outs, internet very slow and sporadic, no gift nor necessities shop or kiosk, etc. Food reasonably good...

Protea is a very good hotel suited for business travelers. I had been hosted here with both international and local business partners. They have good Gym visited by both expatriates and locals. Their food is very good. For its category, I will rate it very good.

I stayed for 4 nights on a business trip. No complaints, it's a pretty standard business hotel: soulless but gets the job done. Staff were helpful and polite. The buffet breakfast had quite a lot of choice. Limited gym facilities are available

Hotel was clean and tidy. Staff were friendly and helpful. Food was appalling. The main problem with the hotel is that is a long way from anywhere. Fortunately, the hotel drivers were all friendly and efficient. Not cheap but they knew the best places to eat and drink.

The Protea Hotel Abuja makes you think of a very large guesthouse. For me it felt cozy and close after many a cold, tiled hotel. I felt at home. The rooms are small and there isn't much of a view. The staff are very friendly though and I was happily surprised to hear my native language, always a plus. The... More
