The Federal Palace is definitely my favorite hotel in Lagos. It's in a great location near in my opinion, some of the best restaurants and clubs in Lagos. While the Federal Palace isn't the most modern hotel, its definitely a classic. The hotel is definitely not as modern and cutting edge as a lot of newer hotels but its charming.... More

Great attention to guest needs. I had an exceptionally pleasant welcome beginning from the bellman to the receptionist. A complimentary glass of pineapple juice was served while check-in was in process and everyone was very polite and eager to help. The room I stayed in was clean with a comfortable bed and fantastic view of Victoria Island. I ordered room... More

A good 4 star it can be, if the Management decides to upgrade the property. No doubt about the location, it is beautiful overlooking the waters provided you get a room facing it. The security, entrance and lobby is good, warm welcome by staff is good, but had a dirty linen on my bed, stained curtains, dusty lamps, etc. put... More

I stayed here for two nights. Overall, not bad, but certainly not memorable. For the price I had higher expectations. The room was a good size, and bed was comfortable. However, the bath was missing its plug, and I battled to communicate with housekeeping to get one. I found the pillows too high, and having requested a flatter pillow, I... More

Had a Business Lunch at the Federal Palace Hotel on a weekend (Saturday) and it was a very wonderful experience that surpassed my general expectations. It was time to have our lunch and the meals were hot and tasty. The staff on duty were cautious and very professional in their conduct. I hope to visit this restaurant very soon!

Had a breakfast meeting and was pleased at the variety of choices served at the buffet. You have a choice to either dine in or outside. Dining outside gives you a view of the river and the peacocks prancing all around you. Lovely experience and would love to spend some more time there.
