Though I've never actually stayed at Prince Hotel, I've had the pleasure of dining at Calypso Restaurant many times over the past 20 years. I've been coming here since I was a newly wed, and have very pleasant memories of Kano's most enduring restaurant. Service at Calypso is always 'cool, calm and collected'! Staff are polite, kind and very professional, not to mention very neatly dressed in formal attire. Ambience has always been lovely; seemingly for a mature crowd and a place where you will seldom encounter noise and unrulines. The decoration has changed over the years, yet the decor always exudes class, grace and finesse. There's a nice bar area and a beautiful aquarium. Tables are impeccably laid and toilets are excruciatingly clean! I've mostly had lunch at Calypso, with my entire family in tow. They have a decent selection of local, and intercontinental dishes, (with a big focus on Lebanese cuisine). Prices are a bit steep at Calypso, but the fixed prices for breakfast are a good deal. The food always tasted delicious, (some dishes more so than others). At times, their food lacks flavor or seasining. This time we went there in the morning- a party of 5. Only breakfast was available, (as a set menu), with 4 options on offer. We ordered the Calypso Breakfast, which includes Seasonal Fruit Segments or Fresh Orange Juice, 2 Eggs done to your taste served with Kidney Sauce, Fried Plantain and French Fries, Toast served with Butter & Jam, and a choice of Tea or Coffee. We also got the Arabic Breakfast, which is a choice of Seasonal Fruit Segments or Orange Juice as well, Foul Moudames served with Mozzarella Cheese, Labneh with Olive Oil, Fresh Vegetables & Pickles with Arabic Bread, and choice of Tea or Coffee. We also ordered the English Breakfast. This came with the same Seasonal Fruit or Juice option, choice between Cereal or Porridge, 2 Eggs cooked how you like, served with Chicken Sausages, Baked Beans and Kidney Sauce, and the Toast with Butter and Jam, plus the Tea or Coffee option. We substituted the Kidney Sauce for French Fries. Everything tasted good and was presented very elegantly. I did however feel a bit cheated/short-changed when my Arabic Breakfast was served without the Labneh. I'm sure they didn't have it, but at least the waiter should have mentioned it to me, if not for anything, but out of pure courtesy. After all, it was listed as part of the set menu, so it should have been included. I just decided to let it go and not say anything about this. The breakfast was rich, tasty, filling, and satisfying. We really enjoyed every yummy morsel. I just wished they would include water in these set menus, because nothing 'washes down' a hale and hearty breakfast like a good gulp of H20! Calypso Restaurant has stood the test of time, and is one of the best restaurants in Kano as far as I'm concerned. I will continue to dine here as much as I can because everything is remarkably organised, well maintained and smoothly run. I highly, highly recommend Calypso Restaurant!!! 👏🏽…
This place is there since I have visited Nigeria and has been the same. Good place to stay when on a business trip to Kano Nigeria. The place is neat and clean and the rooms are not big but equivalent to any business hotel around the world. The service staff is great and courteous. They are always there to help you. The place is in a quite neighbourhood and we can get a good night sleep after the business trips during the day. The weather is Kano is harsh most of the year accept during the winter months.
The location of the hotel is great; close to the city centre. The rooms look clean but the furniture aren't modern. The standard room is tiny so if you need space, avoid it. No free wifi. You have to pay. The food is overpriced too.
I had a wonderful stay at Prince hotel located at the city center not far away from the bank road and other major center s. Spacious rooms friendly staffs and management. I recommend you to visit when ever you are in Kano state.
The hotel is very well maintained and most pleasant outside with vegetation, overall "village" aspect. Various accomodation available (villas a great if you're there for a few days) and a nice swimming pool areas.
