Value for money. Personalized service, great interior decor and good breakfast. The hotel definitely lives up to its reputation. Loved everything about. Its definitely pricey, but worth the premium you pay.

A nice upgrade from Another hotel in town. Elegant, clean and with great service. The views from the hotel are beautiful - able to see across Victoria Island and into Lagos proper. Brunch on Sunday also has a live band. Great place!

I was quite astonished to find a hotel like this in Nigeria. It has a good western standard, the staff is very nice, rooms are big and clean. Water in the rooms has a strong Chlor smell but better with than without it. The gym is in comparison to other hotels a real good one. It has a lot of Precor stuff in it. For all fitness freaks: you will love it. Free water bottles are included. The hotel itself has several restaurants. We visited a couple of them. All were quite good. The room gets, when you turn off the a/c a rather strange smell but I turned it off anyway. All in all it was a comfortable stay. I expected less.

As an IHG platinum member I have stayed in this hotel since it first opened. It was great when it first opened with great indoor and outdoor space and a cracking pool. Fast forward 4 years. It has no atmosphere most of the outdoor space is closed or under used. The swimming pool is regularly closed. The downstairs bar/club closed. The prices remain high - a complete downgrade in in room amenities and no mini bar. It now always feels empty. Fixtures and fittings are getting tired and worn and not replaced. Much better at the Radisson Blue down the road. Cheaper, nicer and it has atmosphere!

The hotel is based in a nice modern building. The service from the staff was good and very friendly. A quite nice Italian restaurant is there with an additional Chinese restaurant. Rooms are comfortable and clean.

This hotel typifies the Intercontinental reputation, nice clean rooms equipped with modern amenities, good food, beautiful views and most important a friendly and welcoming staff! Travelled on a business trip and despite arriving late in the day , was early received and check in was smooth and quick. The hotel serves a tasty breakfast and is well located in close proximity to many businesses in Victoria Island , Lagos.

Do not throw money My stay November 10th, 2017 Honestly hardly will I ever leave a review on a hotel that is negative but this one is just too bad. I and my wife where visiting Lagos and decided that we would stay a night at the intercontinental hotel Lagos. Being disappointed is to say the least. if you are thinking of watching TV while relaxing in the hotel room. Forget it the TV is not working in the room.. The staff is not pleasant and will not follow through on inquires from guest regarding basic cleaning of thier rooms. Just calling staff to assist in cleaning the room is an issue. The worst experience I had was dealing with the receptionist Tope she was extremely rude. She wanted me to sign a document I looked at the document and asked a simple question " what am I signing" she proceed to yell at Me and said " I said you should sign. Signing a document without reading does not really make much sense. But to this employee she could care less because that is the standard of the hotel. This hotel is charging a 5 star price for 3 star equivalent service. I will gladly pay for value any where in the world. But be treated like crap for services that are not free does not make any sense. A hotel without working TV, friendly and helpful staff and a clean and comfortable environment is not really a hotel. I would not recommend this hotel to friend.

Sometimes you take the city you have lived almost all your life for granted. It is even worse when all you see and hear in the media is the traffic, the crime and the noise of Lagos. I celebrated my 50th birthday at the Intercontinental and my husband and I stayed at the hotel for the night. Though not my first stay at this hotel, it was the first time I bothered to look out of the window from the VIP eating lounge on the top floor. The view of Victoria Island Lagos from that level is simply breathtaking!

First impressions are good with a nice, well appointed lobby and friendly reception staff. The communal areas in general are well looked after. The room itself was clean and spacious although had the lingering smell of damp / mould which I believe was coming from the air conditioning unit. This hung in the air my entire stay. The bathroom was also clean but the fixtures were clearly dated with the flush button actually coming apart from the cistern in the toilet and differing water temperature depending on when you showered. The restaurant was nice and breakfast was good serving a mix of Nigerian and Western cuisine. Waiting staff were attentive. Service in general was hit and miss. I was told by the concierge twice that I did not have a package until reception had to intervene to tell them I definitely had a package and they should look harder. The lady on the phone taking a room service order definitely did not want to talk to me. Overall it's clean and safe and you could do a lot worse. On the other hand they have room for improvement.

The room was amazing with big washroom and bathtub, but the yellow water still a problem in all Lagos, the panorama view at the night from the room takes me to a different world, I didn't close the curtains during the night to see that amazing view. and the breakfast service was nice, the young lady welcoming you in the morning was very nice and here smile and friendly welcome and traditional dress is the best thing in the day, I think her name was Christy as I remember I don't like the variety of the food in the breakfast but it was OK The gym was nice and contains a complete set of machines, The room service is nice and they brought to me an espresso machine in my room, the food menu is fine but need more varieties I recommend this hotel and I will stay on it again
