Found hotel charming and very clean My guests took me out nightly so I only had breakfast which was tasty and good value Found hotel safe and remember this is Lagos and one needs to dress conservatively and resist from showing jewels or watches Will definitely recommend this hotel and return on next visit

I stayed 3 nights here on my first trip to Lagos. Safe and secure with plenty of security to make first time travelers to Nigeria feel really safe and welcome. Centrally situated to my business destinations and main city businesses. Staff are friendly, especially reception - waiters on the quiet side but still pleasant and helpful. Wi-fi free for guests...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This stunning boutique hotel arguably offers the finest accommodation in downtown Lagos. Conveniently situated right in the heart of Victoria Island's hotel district, everything is near at hand, with Kuramo Waters and the Atlantic Ocean being in easy reach of the hotel. Designed for the discerning traveller, the hotel offers fine dining in elegant surroundings while the secure location ensures peace and quiet from the surrounding hustle and bustle of the city. In the normal Protea Hotels tradition, nothing is ever too much trouble to ensure our GUESTS enjoy all the facilities needed by today's traveller. If you use a little bit of street savvy, Lagos can offer you a number of unique experiences. It has more night clubs and live music than just about any other West African city and is chiefly known for its music. The late Fela Kuti came from an outer suburb of Lagos. Sunny Ade, king of juju music, still calls it home as does the Afro-reggae specialist Sonny Okosun. Sunny Ade's club,Ariya Night Club, is in Yaba and is worth a visit - as is the open-air Jazz 38 where, if you've had the foresight to bring your own musical instrument with you, you might score an invitation to jam with the band. ... more   less
