Hillcrest Hotel
Ranked #76 of 438 Lagos B&B and Inns
Reviewed April 20, 2011

I liked this hotel largely because of its size and proximity to the airport. It was small and quaint and in a quiet neighborhood...which is hard to find in Lagos! The staff were okay but the food was pretty good. I stayed in one of the suites and found it pretty roomy compared to other small hotels in Lagos. Also decently decorated.

The major problem with this hotel was the parking, that was abysmal. Also there are no real amenities like a pool or sports bar. The bar in the lobby is okay but the drinks were pretty expensive.

All in all I'd go back because its great for business trips and a quick turnaround.

This is definately a hotel that you only want to visit once in your life. Either stay just one night as I did, move to another one immediately or don't even go here at all. The rooms are old, dirty and it all stinks and just looks horrible. Even for African standards, or let's be honest, even for Nigerian standards, this is just unacceptable really. Rooms need urgent renovation! Rest is pretty ok, lobby & restaurant for example,but hardly a 2*/3* level. Rooms shouldn't even be called rooms, and the bathrooms, well.....you've probably not seen someting like that in your life before. That must be minus 3* !

lobby was ok, food and drinks also. No problem with breakfast. However, the room (410) was very old-fashioned, no mini-bar (there was an empty fridge), old carpet, but the bed was ok. Very noisy and smelly air-co. Bathroom was in very bad shape (I could see under the bath and all the pipes under). The water came brown and there was a 5 cm long cockroach in the room... Also, the lift had some problems, stopping for up to one minute between two floors, a bit scary.

Fortunately I have only spent one night there.
