Ranked #50 of 53 Hotels in Lagos
Reviewed 14 October 2013

the hotel was in a good location to the beach and the shops and resturants however the hotel does need a big update. it could be cleaner and the bathroom was very dirty and old decor. breakfast was average but be varied though and the signal for the wifi is very more as you go to higher levels. the room had a balcony that had didnt have much of a view and it can get very noisy at night.

Just in centre of Lagos, right next to all bars and restaurants. But still it wasn´t noisy at all. We had a room in the upper layer so our balcony was pretty windy. So don´t dry your towel in the balcony although you´ll loose it ;) Nice hotel, clean and comfy rooms. The beach is about 10-15 minutes walking distance.

The advantage of this hotel is the location in the city centre. The room was fine but could be cleaner and chambermaids could work harder. We ate every day for 6 days the same breakfast... However staff was good. We also couldnt conect wifi in the room (3th floor).

Close to the downtown area where all the fun is. It's a nice hotel, old-looking but comfortable. The rooms aren't huge, but you shouldn't expect much in Portugal. The elevator broke on the first night (no one inside), but they fixed within a couple of hours. The most important thing is that the location was good, and for a good price!

The Hotel is in the centre of Lagos in a great location close to all the shops and restaurants though this also means it can be noisy outside at night as there are a few bars on the same street. The breakfast didn't have much choice apart from bread rolls, cheese and ham plus cereal, though halfway through the week they had yogurts, eggs and fruit as well. Rooms are ok size with a balcony at front looking onto the streets, but a bit dated. cold water didnt work in the sink of the bathroom but did in shower/bath. Rooms cleaned everyday. Staff were friendly and there was free wifi. good for the price as it was one of the cheapest in lagos but not perfect.

stayed for one night in may, great location for the Lagos nightlife, but front of hotel faces onto very noisy street into the early hours. breakfast included , adequate, very nice lady serving, infact all staff very helpful and polite. Room clean and air conditioned with a balcony.
the hotel is not the easiest to find by car but has free parking outside...I would return.

Room Tip: quite rooms at the back but no balcony

The hotel looks very old, iron staircase, rusty dusty window cover...an awful smell of bugs spray in the room! Not the best choice, avoid if you care at all about the hotel state...on the other hand, right in the middle of the brit-like party zone...if you like getting blind-drunk in the streets with lots of woozy light dressed youngsters, a close by room will come in handy.
