Having stayed in many hotels in Lagos without doubt The Oriental is the best. Typically rooms elsewhere tend to be rather small and very dated in their appearance and in the levels of maintenance, not so here.
The German manager ensures that if you do have a question or an issue that needs resolving then it is, immediately. I wonder if he ever sleeps, he is the consumate professional.
Lovely large rooms, usually with views of the lagoon, and a free mini-bar which is restocked daily!
My favourite was Protea Hotels, and if you want a smaller hotel then stay there, but for me the room sizes and bathrooms steer me here every time.

Room Tip: I think the smallest classic room is 60sqm, each bathroom has 2 wash basins 2 bathrobes with slippers; huge walk in showers and sunken baths. This gives you an idea if you are thinking of upgrading.

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.
