I'm really puzzled about all the rave reviews this place has received. We spent two nights at the Solar de Mos and, other than the very attentive staff, there is little to speak of.
First of all, I do not understand how on earth this place earned its 4 stars. This is NOT a 4-star hotel, I can see that it may have been one 20 years ago, but its glory has past a long, long time ago. Our room was dated, with mattresses that felt at least 10 years old, a closet with doors from the 70s, a "safe box" with no lock on it and a mini fridge with a permanent lock that will not open with the key provided. There was also a TV with no reception awkwardly and unevenly mounted to the wall (I guess to support the 4-star rating?) The bathroom was quite old too. Overall this place feels like an old retirement home, more so at breakfast where apparently only whispering is allowed...?
On the bright side the staff is attentive and the hotel is quite cheap. More importantly, Lagos is a very nice place definitely worth visiting. We really enjoyed its relaxed atmosphere. We will be going back to Lagos, but I certainly hope we can find a nicer place to stay...More
