I'm an expat and I periodically work in Nigeria. I feel secure and safe in Abuja and in Lagos for that matter. But the recent rash of terrorists attacks by Islamic fundamentalist on the UN and Nigerian government buildings forces one to think carefully about living and working arrangements. According to recent warnings by the US Embassy in Abuja, the two main hotels favored by the expatriate community, the Sheraton and the Hilton, may be considered targets for terrorists attacks. This gives me another reason to shun the big hotels in favor of the small boutique hotels in Abuja, of which there are several, the Reiz Continental among them. This is an adquate, clean and secure hotel which primarily serves a Nigerian clientele. The number of expats staying here is increasing; I hope not so many that this place will become a target like the Hilton. The price is right, the location fine. I am still not crazy about the food but I typically eat out at night or have a simple room service meal like the Nigerian pepper soup which I love. I continue to endorse this hotel. I will try some of the other small independent hotels and review them as well.
