I have been a regular visitor to Lagos Nigeria since 2005 an extremely challenging environment for many travellers unfamiliar with this centre.
However, I have discovered the recently opened Protea Westwood Hotel in Ikoyi which provides a very efficient service in a relaxing and secure environment in very comfortable surroundings. The hotel itself is set on the river in the heart of Lagos with its own launch and has a quiet terrace - a place where one can read a book or enjoy lunch or dinner.
The newly re-furbished lounge enables the business traveller to relax or to meet visitors from other countries many of whom visit the hotel on a regular basis and the hotel is especially popular with both British and South African guests. There is also super-fast internet available through-out the hotel.
The hotel provides a meet and greet service at Mohammed Murtala Airport and airport transfers which are essential to make getting to and from this airport less stressful. The hotel also has dedicated drivers to take you to appointments that wait for you and bring you back due to the absence of official taxis and public transport services. The hotel itself and its rooms are immaculately clean and the food is well up to international standards.
Now that I have found this hotel I believe it is well worth sharing with other travellers to Lagos.
