Located in a very quite area in Ikeja

4/5 Good

Liked: Staff & service, room comfort
The staff were friendly and most were quite attentive and willing to help. The food was good. The rooms were clean and the beds (including pillows) were very comfortable but I had problems with the shower room. The shower cubicle itself was cleaned daily to a fairly good standard, but the walls of the shower room itself had stains on them, with cobwebs and dark smudges up in the corners close to the ceiling. The extractor fan did not work throughout my stay (and was not fixed despite being reported as faulty and being promised that it would be looked at) leaving me with no choice but to leave the window open.

2/5 Poor

The property is okay however there is no synergy between Expedia and the hotel, i was turned back for not having a reservation reason being that expedia was informed of no space and i was told. Very embarrassing and frustrating situation coming from a tired trip. 👎
