Lagos Continental Hotel (Formerly Intercontinental Lagos)

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I stayed here for 1.5 weeks while on a business trip in Lagos. The hotel recently lost its status as the IHG Intercontinental hotel, and it is fairly apparent why this happened. First let me say that I did receive excellent service from the front desk staff, particularly Busola. She was always extremely kind and even remembered my name and said hello when we saw each other on the property. Also, Christine who worked as a server in the Milano restaurant provided excellent service as well. With that being said, there were not really any other aspects of the hotel that impressed me. In general, service by the pool was extremely slow (if they even approached you at all) and the rooms need renovating. My first room in this hotel was acceptable, however, the second week, the room was dirty and the air conditioner did not work well and the room was very humid all the time. When I would return after work, sitting in the bed felt like the sheets were damp. If you are spending along time in Nigeria, I would perhaps check into other hotels. However, I would recommend eating here as all the food except the dinner buffet was excellent.

As expected the hotel maintains international standards. Rooms are equipped with amenities for your comfort. Extensive options to choose from for breakfast. Lovely view of Lagos when on the higher floors.

First of all, the hotel has a stinky, mouldy smell. Being located as it is, in a very humid city like Lagos, it is not suited for the thick carpeting in the corridors, which are also very poorly ventilated, leading to the perpetual smell of mould. This was my second stay in this very expensive hotel, with no value for money. When I checked in, after midnight, the hotel bedsheets had not been changed. I found some hairs and disgusting marks on them. It took housekeeoing ten calls and three hours to change them. The shower water was always lukewarm, never hot. I complained, to no avail. The staff would rummage through my things in my absence, forcing me to buy padlocks for my bags. I requested for an early breakfast for my team upon departure given our early flight, to no avail, and with no response from housekeeping. Oh, and there was a strange and annoying whirring sound that came on every night at about 2 a.m. which was not fixed, despite several requests and pleas. I and my colleagues will not be patronising this establishment ever again.

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.
