I stayed for 4 nights on business. The view from the back of the hotel is beautiful, overlooking a green lawn with some trees and the ocean/harbour. There is an outdoor swimming pool with slides, which unfortunately I did not get to use. The hotel is somewhat dated and the rooms are small but adequate. They are very clean, which... More

I stayed at the FPH with my wife and kids over 5 days from the end of July into August 2016. I must say I was very impressed with the hotel which is now managed by Sun International. The hotel is set in very large grounds, a beautiful lawn, a peacock and then a pool club with water slides which... More

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
