I had an excellent stay here and will be returning.

Rooms are modern, clean and comfortable. Staff are exceptionally friendly.

Excellent communal facilities that allow guest to work and socialise in the villa.

I will surely return here again whenever I am in town.

The breakfast is good value but the only drawback is there is a lack of items on the menu for and evening meal. This is not a problem is you plan to eat out.

I would thoroughly recommend the Nordic Villa.

Dear Kevin C

Thank you very much for a kind review. We are pleased that you took your time to review The Nordic Villa.

We always strive to create the best stay for our guests and give them the best service possible.

We will take the comment on breakfast into consideration. Already, we have from 1 September included the breakfast in the room rate to do a little extra for our guests.

Best regards,
Fortune

I've stayed here multiple times since we discovered it last year. For a boutique style property, this is probably the best in the country. The most appealing factor is the simplicity in design which is a rare find in Nigeria where more is usually deemed better. Staff is attentive and very happy to go the extra mile, prices are incredibly affordable by any standards. I would never sleep anywhere else in Abuja unless rooms are unavailable at the Nordic villa. Its just a beautiful property.

I arrived from Frankfurt at 5pm on a Saturday - The Nordic Villa is at it tells you a Villa but you need to know the Number of the street to find the villa - Number 52 - It has no Hotel sign or even a Villa Sign and nothing tells you it is the Nordic Villa - Strange - I tried to book it on line - it stated it was full - however having sent an e-mail I got a room confirmed - the most expensive as it turned out however in a City where the Hilton is Euro 280 a night and not the best looking Hilton I have ever been in and the Sheraton ( which is a broken down dirty Dump ) charges Euro 200 plus the Nordic villa is only Euro 137 - the rooms are clean - it is like a show room of ikea - the staff are friendly and the food and drink limited however you will not starve ! - The TV works as long as the power lasts - it goes on and off - but that is Abuja -Would I stay again - yes - be warned though they want cash at the end of the stay - No credit cards - even though the web site tells you other wise! - Buy the way I only saw one other person in the Hotel over my two days - so I don t think the online reservation systems works either - always send an e-mail ! - the rates go up in September so count on Euro 150 per night Band B - If you want a Taxi go out onto the street and grab one - The Hotel car a Golf of about 25 years old was a death trap and the driver had a death wish !- An experience !!

Room Tip: All the room are the same you just pay more for the bigger rooms !

Dear TOPCAT010

Thank you very much for taking your time to review The Nordic Villa. We take all reviews seriously and go through them with our staff to ensure that we can learn from any observations raised from our guests.

The Nordic Villa is a private boutique hotel - we cherish our guests and their privacy. We would like to keep The Nordic Villa a quiet and private hotel where our guests can relax and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere. I’m sure that's why you didn’t meet too many guests in the hallways. Our guests are always more than welcome to spend time in our lobby and watch TV or browse on our free high-speed Internet while perhaps enjoying a cold drink and a snack.

We are proud to say that we experience high interest in The Nordic Villa and are typically fully booked weeks in advance. So far we have not experienced any errors in our online booking system. We do however sometimes get cancellations and if we do not manually remove these bookings immediately from the online booking system the availability will not show. We are terribly sorry that you’ve had this experience, but we can see in our system that this is what you have experienced when you got the message that we were fully booked.

Regarding your comment on the credit card issue we are only able to take credit cards at the time of booking for guests coming from outside Nigeria. Paypal our secure online payment gateway does unfortunately not allow us to process cards in Nigeria. We will take action and make this more clear on our website.

Regarding your comment on the hotel car being a 25 year old Golf I can comfortably say that this is not our car. We do have a couple of cars that we use for our guests - all are 2011 models with AC and very responsible drivers.

We hope to see you back at The Nordic Villa another time.

Best,
Fortune
Manager

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.
