I had stayed at this hotel at a state of disrepair some 4 years ago. It was then repaired and revamped and the place looks really nice now however the staff in the Reception do not belong in the hospitality industry. No smiles, no welcome almost as if they were doing you a favour to be there.t

Recently stayed at the Protea Hotel Ikeja whilst on a business trip to Nigeria. The hotel is located on Isaac John Street in GRA Ikeja. A nice hotel with good infrastructure, it is ideal for the airline staff because of it's proximity to the airport (being n the Mainland)

Hotel is very nice, with very friendly staff. Food -- the buffet, al carte menu, and bar menu are all good, but dinner buffet is much better than the breakfast buffet. Rooms are nice but my (Deluxe) room didn't have bed lamps on either side of the bed, so you had to get up to turn lights on/off. And the... More

This is a cool and welcoming place to lounge; good environment, respectful and helping staffs, and a place for real travellers, located in one of the busiest and commercial site in Lagos. Got lots of restaurants, shopping malls and cinemas close by. Though I went for a business meeting, but we were spoken to with care and respect.

The service was awesome,friendly staff and lovely swimming pool in the middle of the Hotel. Meal was good and price is reasonable. The environment is good for business meetings and close to the International Airport. No big car pack space if there is heavy function in the Hotel.
