“Home Away From Home”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

I feel truly blessed to have had the opportunity to stay at the Nordic Villa for 2 weeks. Mr. Fortune and the staff made me feel so welcome for my first time visiting Nigeria...people have many negative opinions about Nigeria but the country is like any other place...we all have problems. Me being a citizen from the United States I can honestly say that the people are beautiful and very polite...At the Nordic the rooms were very clean and service was excellent if I could have stayed longer I would have. The interior as well and the exterior of the Villa is very modern and it makes you feel like your at home in the US. It was nice to see a style that is familiar to me in the comfort of Abuja Breakfast is included in your stay and you feel so at home til you don't want to leave. The only request that I have is that lunch and dinner be served at the Villa as well....it's a hinder when you are so comfortable being at the Villa then you have to leave to find evening dinning. Overall, on my next visit to Nigeria I will be back at the Villa...there's no other place I whether be.

My last stay in May was my 2nd, albeit my 1st was at their sister hotel The Nordic Residence. I would say this one is better. The hotel is mostly very well kept, the rooms are cleaned well, they have a nice staff and Fortune Abah, the manager is really great. He is always smiling. I usually stay at the name brands when I travel, but in Abuja you want to lay low and this is the place to be. Highly recommend it. TS.

I like this place so much that I keep going back to stay there, every time I am in Abuja. Great ambience and friendly staff, all in an accessible location. Highly recommended.

PS: They should consider having a full-fledged kitchen for food throughout the day. The breakfasts are great at this point of time.

For those who don;t want to pay $400 plus for the Sheraton or Hilton, this is an excellent choice. Quiet location and nice rooms starting about $135. Internet among the best in Abuja, by all accounts, and a good breakfast. Evening meals are limited but the idea is that you order in from a nearby restaurant, the Cabana, which has a huge range of good Western & local food. Staff polite & helpful.
My only suggestion for an improvement would a be a little bar area, which might be nice!

I heard so much about this place and so I decided to give it a try, based on the rave reviews. I like the interior setup, for a small, boutique hotel it's well structured. Standard room is typical. There is no food, apart from a basic breakfast that bores you after the first time you have it. You have to order meals, which turn out to be expensive and include a delivery fee. Staff are friendly and helpful though - that's the hotel's strong point, in a country where customer service is lacking.
One incident put me off though - one of the owners came in to the main lounge and assuming I was one of the staff (I guess because I'm black), barked at me to turn down the volume on the TV. It might say a lot about his view of his staff.
Overall I don't see the hype. It's hard to get a reservation and when you eventually do, the experience is only average - at best, only slightly better than other Nigerian hotels

On the whole our experience at the Nordic Villa was very pleasant as we found the staff to be both welcoming and accommodating. We were impressed with the decor of the hotel generally, however, the bathroom didn't quite match the standard of the room that we stayed in. Staff were pleasant and we enjoyed the car service offered by the hotel. Just be warned, though, that if you do have an early morning flight to catch, don't expect to receive an early morning wake up call if you request one the night before because you won't get one.

Very calm, very serene, very nice time at nordic villa this easter but I think they should redesign the bathroom. The water heater and liquid soap dispensers are too close to the bathing person, the shower curtain is too long. Other than that, everything else is thumbs up.
