This hotel is bad from the second you arrive until the second you leave. Receptionist (no mask) could not find my booking so ordered, not requested, me to sit and wait. When eventually got room it was with no thank yous or enjoy your stay, just more contempt for me daring to be a guest in the hotel. Room on second floor was down a dimly lit corridor and it saw to say had seen better days. Probably in about 1980 as the air con unit, which was like having a generator on the room due to the noise, was certainly the oldest I have ever seen. No water supplied in room nor any kind of room menu so had to get Uber to a supermarket to get water. Shower was a trickle at best and the variety of condiments left was a bar of soap and body lotion. Hair shampoo doesn’t exist here. The lumpy bed, fuzzy tv and threadbare carpet completed the room! After a limited sleep night due to aforementioned air con, tried turning it off but the loud dripping from it turned it from a generator to a Chinese water torture device, went to go to breakfast. Only one lift working out of 2. First time lift come it was full of a laundry cart being used by staff. Second lift come and people not wearing masks entered and refused to cover face. Observed same people going into breakfast along with others leaving breakfast without masks and totally unchallenged by staff. Giving the infection levels still high in Nigeria breakfast was then a danger! Refund as couldn’t get breakfast…. I chance! Avoid this dump!

Stay at Chelsea Hotel Abuja -worthwhile experience
It was a nice clean room, friendly staff and reasonably COVID 19 compliant. Nicely located at the heart of the city. Could easily take sight seeing walks to nearby places of attraction like the International Conference Centre and some of the foreign embassies. However, there is need to ensure some of the offers given properly align with that of the hotel in order to meet guest's expectations and avoid embarrassment to all the parties involved with the booking.
