Good location

My sister and I stayed at the Protea in GRA for a week - March 2017. This was our second time at this hotel, due to its close proximity to our parents. The location, if you need to be on the mainland instead of the island, is great (we've stayed at the Wheatbaker in Ikoyi on previous visits but didn't fancy tackling the Lagos traffic this time). The suite we stayed in was tired and needed updating (cleaners did their best but couldn't cover up the dirty carpets and shabby bathroom). The waiters in the restaurant were sleepy, at best, and nonchalant at worst. On every occasion we had to call them over to take our drinks order etc. They seemed more interested in chatting amongst themselves. If you don't need to be in the Ikeja area, I'd head for the Wheatbaker in Ikoyi. There, you'll experience quality customer service - at least by local standards. (No, I am neither a member of staff or relative to anyone at the Wheatbaker, just a discerning traveller who recognises and appreciates good guest experience). Wifi is slow but it's fair to say this is a common problem in many establishments in Lagos.

Excellent Stay

I stayed here with my husband and bridal party during my wedding weekend. I was upgraded because I was the bride, this was highly appreciated by me. My guests from the U.S all had a marvelous stay. They have a great breakfast buffet offering. I never really tried lunch but my friends gave great recommendation for the taste and quality. I would definitely visit again when given the opportunity! The rooms are clean, heavenly and the hotel decor and lighting is of great quality. It's a Very secured and security conscious premises!

Good place to stay in Lagos

This hotel has a nice, large, new-looking lobby area, restaurant and bar, with lots of places to sit and meet. There are security guards out front, and the hotel is surrounded by high walls and security wire. Vehicles are checked coming in. Very nice staff, if a bit chaotic at the front desk on our arrival. I found that the standard rooms are of mixed quality – my first one (205) was dark, with old windows facing the front street (with sound of car horns), musty old carpet, heavy old drapes that were a real pain to move aside to let in any light, old furniture, iffy AC, but a nice bathroom (with a fantastic big shower). My colleague’s room (next door in 204!) was more renovated, much brighter, with new carpet and curtains, and a better configuration/shape (less cramped). The large bed was comfortable, with good linens. After a few nights, I moved to room 110 on the ground floor, which had a better configuration/shape (though some very odd features including light switches only on one side of the bed) and newer carpets, but old windows (as in 205) with newer drapes but with no mechanism to hold them open (as if you want drapes completely closed all the time), and still not great sound-proofing. There were numerous power outages, usually brief (generators and inverters kicked in within a minute), but one long outage one Saturday, lasting an hour, with no lights, AC, and also no running water. The TV had several channels, including CNN, Sky News, BBC, NatGeo, and several movie channels as well as Nigerian news, sport, etc. The Wifi was a bit up and down, with a frustrating voucher system necessitating frequent signing in (multiple times a day), and time limits. On my phone, I had to sign in (re-entering the codes) 10 or so times per day - silly system. The rooms have a small fridge, coffee and tea kettle (although in quirky room 205, I had to plug in my kettle across the room at the desk area, because it would not reach the plug nearby). The pool area is small, with the small pool elevated in the center of what is more a meeting and drinks place than a swimming-oriented pool area (not comfortable to swim there, surrounded by people having their drinks)….It looks more like a large fountain feature. Too bad, in this hot and sticky weather, not to have a more discreet and accessible pool. The gym is quite good, with a very nice manager on duty. But it’s in a strange long space (really a long open hallway), with some broken equipment (one treadmill, one elliptical not working), one newer treadmill which worked well, several stationary bikes which were ok, one rower (weirdly in the middle of the room), barbells, weight machines, and sets of free weights. Open 24 hours a day. This was a welcome place to get some exercise at the beginning or end of the day, although it could be better. The space was also rather dirty (the floor and machines), and needs more regular cleaning. The restaurant is nice, and food is very good, high quality, with some good wines including small (individual serving) bottles. The dinner buffet is pricey by Nigeria standards, but includes a wide variety of salad dishes, soups, meats, veg, and others…both Nigerian and international fare. The breakfast buffet was very good with fruits, cereals, yogurt, breads, lots of hot dishes, and omelets/eggs made to order. It would be nice to see them get rid of the canned fruits, and offer more fresh fruit options such as mangoes, bananas and other fruits that you see around town. The room service menu was ok, but very limited, and for a stay of longer than a week, it gets very old. The hotel should add more dishes to the room service options.

Business Trip to Lagos

This was my 2nd stay at the Protea Hotel in Ikeja. As the one in Maryland is no longer open, I had to move over. The rooms are clean and there is enough space. I prefer the ones on the 1st Floor. The management is perfect. Very supportive. Thank you very much guys! The restaurant is also good. If you stay there for 10 days, it would be nice to have a bigger variety. I also would like to see more options on the wine list. The bar is very nice and the staff very good. Will come back!
