Stayed there for business for a few nights in March. For Lagos standards absolutely superb with decent value for money offerings. Felt very safe which is an added bonus in Lagos. Clean rooms with a tasteful interior and a good bed. Value for money is good. Conveniently located when your have business in Ikeja and close enough to the airport.... More

Stayed for a few days. Rooms are big enough, nice beds, breakfast is not bad. Staff are super friendly. Gym is basic but adequate, and the pool was very welcome in the Lagos heat. Location was good for business in Lagos but not if you need to get to the island. NB ask for a room away from the generator.
