Reviewed 14 July 2013

For years this hotel has been my first place of choice any time am in Abuja. I spend several nights in this hotel mainly because of its strategic location which make it very easy to reach almost all government offices in abuja within the shortest possible time. the hotel Security structure, the good restaurant/ shopping mall directly opposite the hotel is an added advantage. The staff are quite helpful.

Room Tip: Make sure the tv are on and the tv are clear. Some of the tv in the rooms re not so clear. Avoid the...

This is the second time I stayed at the Summerset. I enjoy staying here. It is comfortable, rooms are large and the internet generally works. They were replacing/installing carpets while I was there - I wish they would just leave the ceramic tile or wooden floors - so much cleaner and fresher. The complimentary breakfast is simple, but adequate, staff are helpful and the pool is clean. The location is good (not far from the Hilton) and in an area that is pleasant to walk in, should you desire. The Summerset is a nice, boutique type hotel, offering comfortable accommodation at a reasonable price (for Nigeria).

I checked into the same room (011) where my colleague had a terrible experience more than 12 months ago and the situation was worse. On the 1st day I complained seriously about a terrible damp stench. Nothing was done. 2nd day air humidifier was brought in the morning. By the following morning it was gone, leaving the room smelling more with visible mould under the veneered floor.

Never returned, on the 3rd day after a hard day's job I had to beg for 45 mins b4 the air cleaner was brought back (please see picture). 5 mins later I made to use the bed and almost got thrown out - the bed had disintegrated - it was like a trap. It took my walking to shout at the front desk b4 someone was sent to set it up again. I got a call later apologizing and asking if there was another complaint. I said I hoped not. But 10mins later there I was complaining that the air conditioner wasn't cooling. I requested for some repairs and left for the piano bar at Nicon hotel to enable them work.

I returned 2.5hrs later and saw a fan by my bed with explanation that the air conditioner will be worked on the next day.

Tourists, business travelers, families and lovers of decent places, please you be the judge. Goodluck if you want to come here.

Room Tip: Choose wherever you want if you want to come here.

I stayed at the Summerset Continental a few weeks back and i had a really pleasurable stay. The environment was serene and the staff were very friendly and attentive. Overall the quality of service received was worth it. :)

Room Tip: Rooms on the first floor facing the poolside are lovely and quiet.

Third visit to Abuja on Business, decided to try something different than the Hilton. A local friend
recommend the Summerset. Upon my arrival after a late flight, the room was not ready: hotel
personnel was installing drapery in the room and cleaning the room at 10pm. The bathroom was not clean and the water coming out of the faucet was smelly and brownish in color and their was no toilet paper in the bathroom. The entire room smells like mothball. Also, the closet didn't have any hangers. I communicated my dissatisfaction to the night manager, she did her best to resolve the problems, but next days new issues arise: no water in the room during the morning, no cable signal, no internet, and the room safe was never unlocked by the previous guest and the management was not able to unlock the safe. Additionally, security service in the gate was not efficient nor professional. Breakfast food was tasteless and tasted old.
