“Nice but...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2012

I only stayed here for one night. It is quite expensive and doesn't quite live up to the charge. However it is a nice clean upscale hotel. The rooms are very spacious and the bathroom is massive with an enclosed shower stall as well as a tub. The bed is the best thing about the room, you could sleep for 24 hours straight. The room arrangement was not well thought out, there is no socket close enough to plug in the bedside lamp, and light switches are way across the room from the bed so I had to get out of bed switch off the lights and then grope my way back in the dark. The hotel is located in a safe and easily accessible area right by the Lekki tollgate.

Stayed here on business in May 2012. Just to echo what most of the other reviewers say, the general quality of the hotel is very high for Nigerian standards. The best things for me were the incredibly large rooms, the breakfast, the gym and the good attitude of the staff. It's very expensive but that's true of most places in Nigeria. The difference here is that you almost get what you paid for!

The Oriental Hotel is a beautiful property - not just for Lagos standards. All of the rooms are very large. Even the basic rooms are very spacious. All of the rooms feature lovely chandeliers, flat screen tv's, and large comfortable beds. The washrooms are huge. Each of them has a glass enclosed shower and a sunken or stand alone claw foot tub. There are dual sinks and the hotel automatically provides you with basic toiletry necessities including toothbrushes and toothpaste. They also provide you with slippers which is a nice touch.

The restaurant and room service food is delicious. The service is a bit slow at times but you just have to call your waiter over to get whatever you want. I found this to be true for most Nigerian establishments. Patrons should keep in mind that the person serving them in any location in Lagos may have never eaten in a restaurant themselves and not know what proper restaurant service should be like (even with training!) My favorite is the Japanese restaurant's teppanyaki prawns. Just awesome. The pool area of the hotel is also very nice and overlooking the river. It's a popular spot for early evening cocktails.

I've been to all the other nice hotels in Lagos and this one is the most esthetically pleasing with the nicest rooms.

This hotel offers luxury and space. I could not believe the size of the room we had and this was a basic room. The rooms all have great views over the river. the room comes with everything you would expect. it also comes with complementary soft drinks and beer in the mini-bar. This is very unusual from my experience of Nigerian Hotels. The staff are very attentive and courtious and went out of their way to make our stay very comfortable.

The rooms are spacious and nicely furnished. The hotel has an outdoor swimming pool, and a gym. The view overlooks the lagoon to one side and the highway to the other. Breakfast was OK, The drinks in the mini bar were complimentary. It was interesting to note that the staff who took me to my room informed me about the foreign cuisine on offer in detail but made no mention of the Nigerian menu until I asked for it. It's quite pricey by Nigerian living standards, but has all you need for a comfortable stay in Lagos.

Room Tip: The ones higher than the 6th floor have more of a panoramic view.

My sister and I spent the night before her wedding at the Oriental Hotel. We checked into one of the suites and the first thing I though was "nice but too small to be tagged a suite".

The room was a nice size, though a fraction of the size of a suite at most top class hotels. The reception area was larger than the bedroom and they were separated only by a floor to sealing partition. Not much for privacy because anyone in the reception could see into the bedroom.

The bed was large and very comfortable. It faced the window with a view overlooking the road (not much of a view). The bathroom was the best part. It was large with a nice sized shower and separate bathtub. The staff were pleasant and friendly. Management gave us a complimentary breakfast and a discounted rate because of the special occasion. Breakfast was nice.

The price tag is a bit steep but then so are most hotels that are tagged "top class" in the VI-Ikoyi-Lekki area of Lagos. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who is looking for a central location to stay in Lagos.
