The rooms are an okay size but so dark and gloomy. The alarm kept going off early morning and in the middle of the night. The internet barely worked and they change the password twice a day. The buffet is the same same same sad offering every night and the a la carte menu takes eons. The gym was gross;...

Good Day Anuka9 Thank you very much in sharing your thoughts and comments with us. I do apologize if you did not find our food very appetizing, I will most definitely speak to our Chef for more rotation on the buffets. With regards to our gym, our public cleaning TEAM cleans the gym thoroughly every day, but will monitor this...

I highly recommend this hotel. Close to the airport and safe place to stay. Facilities excellent, everything what a business traveller is looking for, staff friendly. I enjoyed sitting in the patio in the evening. Very relaxed atmosphere.

I only spent one night in this hotel as I was in transit to Abuja. I paid handsomely for my couple of hours, which I think wasn’t worth the short stay. I would, however, return for a longer stay as the room was good and the breakfast was also sufficient. TV – No access to HDMI or USB ports. I...

The hotel is small but very clean and have beautiful cosy rooms. Their seafood is amazing too. Good for a night or 2...I'd definitely go back. Their bar too or sitting out by the pool is lovely for a chilled evening.

I haven't yet found the ideal Lagos hotel for business but I'm sure that I will it isn't the Protea Isaac John Street Ikeja. Some elements of this hotel were astonishingly terrible i.e. at almost £300 per night for a room for 6 nights, the hotel staff were very defensively stingy about bottled water. They resolutely held back from providing...

This smaller hotel in Africa offers a truly welcome change of the "normal" African hotel scene of outdated 4-5 star chain hotels and dodgy beach resorts. The hotel is almost to be considered as a Boutique hotel in Africa. Only three floors high, with exceptionally clean rooms and bathrooms with clean and hot water.( Africa travelers will know what I...

I have stayed at this hotel four times now whilst away on business. My employer previously accommodated me at The Sheraton across the street, but took a new contract with this hotel a few years back.

I landed in Lagos at about 9pm and took a sixt taxi to the Protea Hotel Ikeja. The welcoming was very warm and the rooms on the second floor are extremely big. The suits are very nicely designed and I love the open bath tub. There is an outdoor pool and you can go outside for a smoke. I did...

Three nights here for a seminar, comfortable rooms, reliable wireless, good electric back up when the power failed, ok food in the restaurant (enough fresh salad to be useful), adequate security ... not at lot of ambience, but just fine for a business trip.

Stopped here when rotating in and out for work. Really great food and a well stocked bar but can be expensive, make sure you ask the price of spirits before drinking. Rooms clean and comfortable, and we'll laid out. Place is secure and well guarded.
