Been staying here for going on 4 years since I first started doing business in Nigeria. A good hotel, well run, great staff, clean, two pools and a small but well equipped gym and the food is good with a varied international and local menu. Ideal position to get around Ikoyi, Victoria Island and over to Lekki. Always recommend it... More

I have stayed at this hotel several time and each time the staff from restaurant staff to manages always remembers me and can tell me when I was last visiting. The service throughout is excellent. The food is out of this world and I always feel like I am coming home when I stay there.

This Protea is in a good location on VI right opposite the massive Eko Hotel once Lagos's most prestigious hotel. The rooms are good but showing a little wear and tear at the edges. Not quite up to Protea Standards and actually not part of the aquisition of Protea by Marriot so I think things are on hold until the... More

This is not my first trip to Nigeria, neither my first stay at the Hotel. I have stayed an various hotels in the area, but this one is the best choice as a home away from home.

The staff are friendly and helpful. The manager, Tim, was always close by and made you feel welcomed. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The wifi can get a bit strained at peak hours.

Rooms are big, but old and dirty. Food and drinks are crazy expensive for what you get. Service is crap. I will not stay here again. There are way better hotels for the price they are charging that have much better facilities.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This stunning boutique hotel arguably offers the finest accommodation in downtown Lagos. Conveniently situated right in the heart of Victoria Island's hotel district, everything is near at hand, with Kuramo Waters and the Atlantic Ocean being in easy reach of the hotel. Designed for the discerning traveller, the hotel offers fine dining in elegant surroundings while the secure location ensures peace and quiet from the surrounding hustle and bustle of the city. In the normal Protea Hotels tradition, nothing is ever too much trouble to ensure our GUESTS enjoy all the facilities needed by today's traveller. If you use a little bit of street savvy, Lagos can offer you a number of unique experiences. It has more night clubs and live music than just about any other West African city and is chiefly known for its music. The late Fela Kuti came from an outer suburb of Lagos. Sunny Ade, king of juju music, still calls it home as does the Afro-reggae specialist Sonny Okosun. Sunny Ade's club,Ariya Night Club, is in Yaba and is worth a visit - as is the open-air Jazz 38 where, if you've had the foresight to bring your own musical instrument with you, you might score an invitation to jam with the band. ... more   less
