Stayed for 6 nights and basically enjoyed the stay. The breakfast is good and the dinner buffet is not ( although I had a very good steak during the last night ). It must be great when the hotel opened many years ago and now it is aging reasonably well. Service is good but beware of exchange rate when settle... More

Nice place to stay. Clean. Helpful staff, good food. The swimming pool and allied activities are good. Probably one of a kind in Lagos. Location is convenient from shopping and restaurants. I think the staff can be a bit more welcoming, smile more.

I've stayed here a number of times. I still find this to be an excellent business hotel - the rooms are nicely appointed, quiet (very NB), with decent air conditioning. Room service also pretty decent - had an excellent burger after checking in late (after 11pm) on a Sunday evening. Only disappointment was that mini-bar was not stocked. But the... More

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
