“Very good value in an overpriced town”
Reviewed 17 March 2012

Lagos is ridiculously overpriced for hotels, so we decided to stay at this hotel near the airport. It was very close to both terminals, clean, and served bar food through the night (which was a relief, as we had flown non-stop from New Zealand, so were very confused about what time it was!), Staff were friendly, the pool was clean and the buffet breakfast was fantastic. Would definitely recommend as an airport stopover. Rooms were small but functional and it was really quiet. May even go back for a long weekend. Good value in Nigeria, where standards are often lower than this.

This fairly new hotel where the car registrations boast "Centre of Excellence" is exactly thsi. An Oasis in this throbbing metropolis. Since my last visit the gardens are taking shape with Bourganvilia and other tropical plants and shrubs around the pool area.
Inside the high standard of sevice and maintainance continues.
Free internet acces is continuos throughout the hotel. The rooms are clean, airconditioned which changes rapidly from normal power to generation very quickly.

The sevice remain excellent The wine kist now has more depth than on earlier visits. The Chef has become more creative offering excellent hot food at the evening Buffet.
Chapeau to Monsieur Robaix and his team. A bientot mes Amis

Room Tip: I have always had a room on the 2nd Floor overlooking the pool. No complaints

The hotel is nothing spectacular but for those travellers that require accomodation close to the airport this is one to consider. The hotel itself was clean, tidy and secure, with a walled compound and security guards on the gate.

I didn't get to use the pool, but it looked well maintained.

The food is nothing to set the world on fire, but it's ok. There is a reasonable choice at the breakfast buffet, and there is an evening buffet (which I did not try). There are bar snacks available too.

I was there on business, and with my colleague had a comfortable stay. If I was going back to Nigeria this would be a place I would consider returning to.

I ended up at the Ibis after a series of travel mishaps, so was not in a great mood. I was immediately impressed with the lobby and staff. Dinner was a buffet, with a great selection.
And to find FREE high speed internet? Wow!!! Considering the cost in Nigeria and that it is not free in a lot of hotels I've been in places like London, LA, Chicago, Rome - that is awesome!
The central A/C was great, so much so I only got to breakfast at 9.30 am! I slept beautifully. The shower was powerful and just what I needed.
Breakfast was also a buffet - well stocked, with the chef and his assistants keeping an eye on it all and making sure guests were satisfied.
Lunch was a buffet starter, and a la carte main. All selections were local and international.
The manager, Richard Robaix was greeting guests and so hospitable, I had to tell him that I thought highly of the Ibis and the way he managed his staff. That is quite an accomplishment in anywhere; more so in Lagos.
It is also a really great location for the airport and for meetings, which I ended up availing myself of that opportunity whilst on my departure from Lagos.
There has been a lot of attention to detail in its construction: insulation, sound proofing, layout and ambience. It is great to see this quality and service in Lagos, and see and hear Richard continually monitoring and improving things.
The room and meal rates are reasonable, given the environment and comparing it to other hotels in Lagos. Higher prices compared to North America (not Europe) are the norm in Lagos for a variety of reasons, so one needs to compare like with like.
The all important security is evident and comforting.
I fully intend to use the Ibis and its facilities on future trips to Lagos.
