Tivoli Lagos Hotel
Ranked #15 of 53 Hotels in Lagos
Reviewed 14 December 2013

Having a break from the summer heat in Aus, found the perfect place in Lagos. The Tivoli is very big but such a maze you don't notice, though it helps that it's not too busy at this time of year. We've found all the staff here very helpful and obliging. The buffet breakfast is extensive and very fresh- (not a hint of stale bread!). You'd have to be pretty dour not to enjoy the food. The a la carte restaurant is intimate, with nice meals at a reasonable price. The indoor pool very relaxing, the rooms clean and comfortable, with good showers.
Can't understand why anyone could find fault here. Lot's of charm and character despite the size.
Wehave a nice view of the marina and can even see the sea and beach from our balcony. What more could you want, especially at such a reasonable price- half the cost of a basic motel in Aus. Forgot to praise the central location- 5 mins walk from town centre, shops and restaurants.

On the recommendation of a friend we spent a few days in the Tivoli Lagos hotel. in late November 2013. With weather conditions like a good summer in Ireland we spent most of our time outdoors. The hotel is very impressive and comfortable and convenient to the city centre and public transport. It is not cheap but value for money.

Room Tip: Look for a club room on a high floor

We stayed here in early November, as part of a self booked two centre holiday on the Algarve. We also spent 4 nights in Tavira at the Vila Gale Tavira (also reviewed). I am surprised that some guests do not seem to like this hotel. We have stayed here many times and always enjoy our visit. The hotel was built, I believe, in the 1970's and is very cleverly designed. The rooms radiate from the upper circulation area with the main entrance below. It is not very suitable for anyone with mobility problems as some rooms are quite a walk via corridors and steps, although the porter always offers to help with luggage. We like the rooms as they have an intimate feel as you are not really aware of neighbouring guests. There is a free 'bomb site' car park or you can pay for underground parking. The hotel is one of only a few close to the town centre and it's many excellent restaurants. The hotel is clean and comfortable although occasionally the rooms do not get cleaned until late afternoon. This is not a problem for us as we are out all day. The bar prices are high, but there are several local bars nearby which are much cheaper. Breakfast is very good, and the dining room has nice views of the town.

Room Tip: Do not choose this hotel if you want to sit on the balcony in the sun. Most rooms overlook a shady...

Small but cosy room in main part of the hotel. As vegetarians there were sufficient breakfast options and soya milk could be requested. We parked our car in the free outdoor car park - be careful driving as the ground is quite rocky. There are two PC's for free internet, but join the hotel loyalty scheme for free internet vouchers to surf on your own laptop :-) The health club and room TV are not the most modern but perfectly adequate. The hotel is central with easy access to banks, shops etc and a 30 minute walk to a vey nice beach. A positive experience - we would return again.

Stayed again at the Tivoli for the third time. Staff very pleasant, helpful and accommodating . Very convenient position near the Marina , shops and restaurants. Hired a car this time . Kept it in the free secure car park in the grounds. Dining room for breakfast very relaxing . Food fresh and adequate. Bedroom quite large this time -comfortable bed. Linen changed often . Whole hotel spotless despite the fact it is not a new hotel. Had a very reasonable deal with a flight.
Bar was open but hardly anyone in it as there was only 2 nights of entertainment in 12 days we were there. That was a shame as the Jazz band is excellent .
Used the indoor pool most days . It was kept at 32 deg . Very warm. Reception changed towels at no extra cost . Free use of computer but a charge for wi fi. A shame when you could get free wifi at all the bars and cafés.
Shall stay at Tivoli again.

We returned to the hotel again and enjoyed our stay. We had a good upgraded room, Internet connection was great even round the pool. The hotel is like a warren, this time we were in block2 quite a walk from dining room and reception and on third floor. We took advantage of this as a bit of exercise after all the fabulous Lagos food. We walked up and down 3 flights of stairs instead of taking the lift all the time. Good for you and counteracts all the lazing by the pool! Only slight disappointment was the breakfasts compared to most other hotels we have stayed in. Would return. Does need updating but in ideal location for all the wonderful restaurants and the town. Love Lagos, the Marina and the people. By the way we are in our 70's and didn't find the stairs or the distance throughout the hotel a problem.

Room Tip: Get an upgraded room for more space.

We were over the moon with our choice of staying in Hotel Tivoli while visiting Lagos.

The hotel itself is lovely, really nice location, far enough away from the nightlife to be quiet but close enough for a nice evening walk to dinner.

The pool was cold, but a welcome relief from the scorching sun!

It was well kept, clean and the spa area was lovely too, a massage is a must have while staying here! The breakfast was amazing, so much, almost too much if that is possible!

The indoor pool is nice if you want to escape the sun too, but on a bed round the pool completely relaxing is the way to go!
