Reviewed 5 December 2008

I was in this Hotel from 22/11/08 thrue 29/11/08, the place is fine, the rooms are beautiful, but the internet connexion was very slow. The food was not terrible.

But all is to expensive for this hotel.

All dishes more then 2000 ngn.

I never saw a expensive hotel like this in my life.

I was there for business.

A nice hotel in a very poor area, I stayed on business and can honestly say that i,m glad that i don't have to pay to stay there. The accomodation isn't too bad but it is let down by the food that is served - it is appalling.
