“Home away from home”
Reviewed August 3, 2012

Nordic Villa offers very good value for money. It is a little out of the centre, but a taxi ride to just about anywhere will only set you back 2-3 Euros. The rooms are modern, clean and comfortable. Most rooms have a bath, but no walk-in shower, which I missed terribly. The WiFi works fine. Power cuts are common all over Nigeria, but the backup generator is reliable. For a decent meal, be sure to visit Wakkis. Ask the desk how to get there. Nordic Villa does not serve evening dinner although they can organise a take-away for you if you ask (they do breakfast, be it simple and over-priced). I went to next door Hotel Chida every now and again; they do a very decent buffet in the evening. Nearby Hotel 3J's have a decent hair dresser. Enjoy your visit. I did!

Room Tip: All rooms are of the same Scandinavian standard.

I came across the Nordic Villa on the Internet and after reading a number of reviews from previous customers I decided to send a relative to check it out. His physical assessment was fantastic and straightaway he put down a deposit for me. Next day my mother-in-law who was visiting Abuja with her friend changed her booking to Nordic Villa. We even tried to get a 3rd room for my brother-in-law but they were booked out.

I didn't have breakfast in the hotel so I can't comment on that. But I had great service from Simon who got snacks for me when I need some comfort food.

The room I stayed in (Pori) was just perfect for my needs. It was superbly clean, the bed was perfect. My only two grouses were the lack of a lock-up safe and the slow run-off of water in the shower.

But without a doubt if I am in Abuja and need hotel accommodation it will definitely be the Nordic Villa.

Thank you very much for the kind review. We are very happy that we lived up to your expectations and that you enjoyed your stay with us. We are pleased that many of our guests take their time to review us. This makes it easier for other guests to make their decision.

We are always trying to improve our hotel and making every stay the best experience possible for our guests. We are working on the water pressure in The Pori Room and also trying to find a good solution with safes. Hopefully you will see and experience this again next time we will have the pleasure of welcoming you back to The Nordic Villa.

Best,
Fortune

Simon should spend less time on a Mac and more on looking after guests. Breakfast is expensive and not value. Fortune only seems to be able to talk on the telephone and takes no pride in his work. Some rooms and open spaces look like they are under repair. All in all having discussed this with Fortune I am surprised he did not address the problems. Plus a working generator would be nice

Room Tip: On arrival make sure you know what you are paying for.

My discovery of the Nordic Villa was fortuitous, via the internet, and it has been one of my great discoveries. The picture on the internet looked too good to be true, definitely not in Abuja, I thought. Given my recent visit to one of the Scandinavian Countries the name was another pull to check it out.

I had visited several hotels and guest houses and was about to settle for less but the moment I was walking through the rooms. I knew this was where I would stay. The room rates made the decision a no brainer. Everyone was warm and pleasant from day one to the last.

I looked forwarded to going back to my room after work daily from March through June. Now I have a home at the Nordic Villa.

Room Tip: If you love space the Stockholm should be your least choice

We stayed in the Copenhagen Room and were delighted with the accommodations. Heidi found the Nordic Villa on the internet and our Nigerian hosts went by the hotel and sent us a message that her choice would be to our liking. The Nordic Villa staff is very courteous and knowledgeable, even putting together a champagne birthday party for me! We will always return to the Nordic Villa when in Abuja!

Room Tip: The Copenhagen Room afforded us the comfort to entertain guests with ease.

I stayed at the Nordic Villa for 9 days in May 2012. What a beautiful place! In contrast to the other hotels in Abuja this is HEAVEN. All the rooms and the lobby are tastefully furnished and the staff is incredibly nice and helpful. I had a driver, Didi, who was very responsible and friendly. I highly recommend this hotel. There is nothing else in Abuja that comes even close!
