Mirage Hotel
Ranked #11 of 49 Calabar B&B and Inns
Reviewed March 5, 2012

The Mirage is an OK hotel but with little in the way of creature comforts. There are two restaurants – one being the ubiquitous Chinese Restaurant as is found in most Nigerian hotels.
Calabar is a relatively safe town in Nigeria so getting around isn’t a real problem here. I have stayed at the Mirage on two occasions. As said there are two eateries – one European / International and one Chinese. Both are OK but they don’t always have what is on the menu.
The AC in most of the rooms are window units and don’t seem to do the job very well. My bathroom was a real eye opener with pipe work running across the floor and mould around the bath and no mirror! (see pics). There are two bars in the hotel and a nightclub. The airport is just a short drive away and there are plenty of small ‘supermarkets’ to get essentials close by. The River View Hotel, next door, is a better option and has a good poolside bar.
All in all a pretty average place but safe and adequate,
