The Ibis Lagos Ikeja is a fantastic budget option in an overly expensive city (Around USD$185/night OR $155 if you book online at the IBIS website). Rooms are very clean and well served with the very basic needs anyone would require in a hotel... A comfy bed, clean sheets, clean toilet, Hot/Cold water in the shower, a tiny TV and a fridge.
If you're looking for a 4-5 star experience then this is not for you. Like an Ibis anywhere in the world, its targeted at the budget traveller.
The downsides of the hotel however are
(1) The food prices - A burger is sold for N2600 ($15) which is already a high price in a budget establishment - I called room service one evening and was told i'll be required to pay an additional N1000 ($6) as room service charge... If I wanted to pay these prices, I would have stayed at the Intercontinental.
(2) Tiny rooms - I stayed in a standard room which is probably 20 sq metres and works perfectly for a single traveller, If you're travelling as a couple or with children, I'll advise that you get a bigger room.
(3) The hotel intentionally doesn't come with an Iron & a pressing board so that you are forced to use the in house laundry ---Unless, they review the prices for the services provided, thats a rip -off!
Besides these, Its an ok hotel compared to other budget establishments in Lagos.
