Stayed @ the villa, quite serene with a beautiful environment. The food is nice, somewhat costly and sometimes takes forever to come.The room is spacious and the ac works very well. i totally enjoy my stay.

Facilities are just adequate for a short stay. The power is not constant but the generator backs up more at night (not sure about during the day as I am usually out) and the WiFi is not always reliable. But you can expect to feel secure here.

I have nothing good to say about this hotel. Is located in Nigeria so you can't expect much from it. The electricity is always going down, the internet is very slow, the only thing good is that the a/c works very fine when there is power and I had always hot water upon my stay. The staff is nice.

The hotel has managed to maintain it's standard which is commendable given the severe economic downtown in Nigeria. I travelled with my 2 sons, 17 and 14 and chose an executive room. We were obliged a spare mattress on request. Also, give the low patronage these days, we were given a 10% discount without asking. This would not have been... More

One of the better hotels I've stayed in in Nigeria, or Africa for that matter. Lovely spacious chalet type rooms, clean and comfortable with good bathrooms. Very nicely laid out in well kept gardens. Wi-fi works reasonably well. Restaurant reasonable,though service a bit slow. Definitely recommend it and would use again.

The Prince Hotel although would rate probably a 3* in Eirope , is the best in town. It is very clean , comfortable and friendly service. The food is good but the service is very very slow. Don't ask for a poached egg and expect it to be soft, they tell me they only do soft poached eggs on request... More

Good food! Internet speed is not bad. Courteous staff and it is in a serene neighbourhood. Kano town itself is a quiet place and the dwellers are friendly as well. Everyone comes out to the Garden at night to enjoy the breeze and have drinks.

The very good standards the hotel has been known for since 1990s have been maintained and even improved upon. But there's need to stop charges on wifi which is available in the rooms. Key cards should be used instead of the traditional keys too ancient and cumbersome. Otherwise an extremely good hotel by all standards
