I ended up at the Ibis after a series of travel mishaps, so was not in a great mood. I was immediately impressed with the lobby and staff. Dinner was a buffet, with a great selection.
And to find FREE high speed internet? Wow!!! Considering the cost in Nigeria and that it is not free in a lot of hotels I've been in places like London, LA, Chicago, Rome - that is awesome!
The central A/C was great, so much so I only got to breakfast at 9.30 am! I slept beautifully. The shower was powerful and just what I needed.
Breakfast was also a buffet - well stocked, with the chef and his assistants keeping an eye on it all and making sure guests were satisfied.
Lunch was a buffet starter, and a la carte main. All selections were local and international.
The manager, Richard Robaix was greeting guests and so hospitable, I had to tell him that I thought highly of the Ibis and the way he managed his staff. That is quite an accomplishment in anywhere; more so in Lagos.
It is also a really great location for the airport and for meetings, which I ended up availing myself of that opportunity whilst on my departure from Lagos.
There has been a lot of attention to detail in its construction: insulation, sound proofing, layout and ambience. It is great to see this quality and service in Lagos, and see and hear Richard continually monitoring and improving things.
The room and meal rates are reasonable, given the environment and comparing it to other hotels in Lagos. Higher prices compared to North America (not Europe) are the norm in Lagos for a variety of reasons, so one needs to compare like with like.
The all important security is evident and comforting.
I fully intend to use the Ibis and its facilities on future trips to Lagos.
