I didn't even stay at this hotel but the service was crap from the minute we walked in!!! Doesn't seem like a friendly/welcoming place to stay. Please beware. Our booking was given out even though we called weeks before and still called the confirm several times up until the day we were to arrive.. Only to be given attitude when... More

Was visiting Calabar for a family event so only spent two nights at this hotel. The rooms were clean and decent and the staff were relatively nice for the short interaction I had with them. The two issues I had were the noise from the highway, which was bearable and the breakfast. The breakfast was more of an issue for... More

We came for meeting with business partners a few weeks ago. No light, no electricity. This is a bad condition for a big Hotel with international customers. Power house is completely collapsed. Very annoying. We were sitting in the darkness and we could not continue our meeting. We slept in alternative accommodation. Last week we came again for a Meeting.... More

Stayed here for two nights while on business. The room was neat and tidy, with excellent air conditioning. They even offered free Wi-Fi, and a complimentary continental breakfast. Price point was excellent. The quality of the rooms - they could use a lick of paint to address typical musty issues, power fluctuations are common, and the seal of the bathtub... More

I stayed there for 3 months for business. The staff is very friendly and housekeeping does a good job. The bar was always understaffed but friendly. Nice pool. The restaurant has a decent menu and it was always prepared well. The place is showing it's age and the rooms are pretty bare. Comfortable enough for a business stay. The area... More

The first impression I got was a good and lasting one, I guess It rubbed off on every other thing. the reception was very warm and effective, my room was neat and the food was really tasty and affordable. The two nights I spent was worth every amount I spent.

I have stayed here twice and will go back next time in Calabar. The rooms are clean and adequately serviced, as usual the finish of the bathrooms could be better but this is a problem with most middle of the road hotels in Nigeria. Having said that the shower over bath was good and never ending supply of hot water.... More

I checked in after making a phone reservation. The hotel is located along a major highway, quite accessible for people doing business in the city. Front desk service was prompt, and there is ample parking space. Wifi is fairly good in certain areas of the hotel. NIce pool, gym is just OK too. Bathrooms were just OK too, though I... More

The Service in AXARI is unacceptable for a Hotel like that. Especially in the pool bar area. every evening you must wait for a long time that someone is coming to serve you!! Nobody of their Service employee is really interested to do their Job. And when your drink is served you are forgotten. You as a guest have to... More

This is Nigeria. You are never going to get perfection or real value for money. But compared to most hotels in Abuja, this is pretty good. Clean, spacious rooms; wifi; a well kept pool and the best hotel food I've eaten in the country. OK, so the reception staff can be surly, there is noise from the main road outside... More
