Even though I paid for 8 nights in the hotel I couldn't bear to spend my entire stay there. I technically checked out after 2 nights but knowing that they wouldn't offer a refund I left the hotel after two nights and left some unwanted belongings so that they wouldn't give out a room I have already paid for to another guest. I had to pay again to stay in another hotel (I have receipts to prove it) Lighting in the room of this PINK-painted hotel is VERY POOR - no wall lamps, no ceiling lamps - You have to manage with the bedside lamp and an improvised standing lamp which was generating too much heat. Reading or doing anything that needs good lighting is a struggle. The breakfast was very poor and if your rate didn't include breakfast it is very expensive (about $11 - 4,000 Nigerian Naira) compared to what better and more highly-rated hotels are charging in the same location. And at $20 (7,000 Nigerian Naira), lunch is also very expensive compared to what is charged by higher-rated hotels. The hotel has a very poor ambience and lacks the tranquility you need for a restful stay. In summary if I didn't, regrettably, paid in advanced I would have turned back at the hotel entrance without entering the premises at all. Don't allow the choreographed photographs on the Internet to deceive you.

The outside is painted pink🤨😟, almost made me turn back, inside, uhn!!! Not too catchy, rooms in main building are big but old , the new ones are small but have nicer bathrooms. Very very noisy at night 😤, food is expensive. But if ur looking for an affordable hotel, it’s just OK!

I spent one night here with a friend. It’s a well known budget hotel on the island, one of the more affordable ones. Rooms are alright, comfortable enough but the lighting is very poor. It’s ok for a short stay. Cleanliness could be improved. Breakfast isn’t great. If you need an affordable place to stay on the island, here if fine for a couple of days.

I chose The Blowfish Hotel based on recommendation from a friend. I can after almost 2 weeks stay at the hotel pass on this recommendation. Location is perfect for business in Lagos. The overall atmosphere is friendly and homy. You don't get the "hotel" feeling and staff is friendly and service minded. Rooms are good and value for money. There are several restaurants and a wide selection of food. Breakfast is the buffet type and even though quality is ok there is not too much variance when you stay at the hotel for longer periods. But just a minor issue. I will surely be back again next time to Lagos.

The hotel offers a decent stay for business travellers. The rooms are clean, however the lobby and restaurants can be lot more cleaner and decent. The staff also needs training in welcoming the guests and making them feel home at the hotel.

This is a pleasant place to hang out , if you like to swim and also appreciate good food. It's decent , surely you will have no regrets about the venue or the services provided. The surrounding environment is also secure , and there is a mall nearby to help you out with your shopping.

Really pleasant stay at Blowfish. It’s convenient for business travelers with comfortable and clean rooms, at least 5 restaurants to choose from, supermarket, n really friendly & professional staff...

I love this hotel. I stayed here with my girlfriend for a week in February 2019 and I cannot speak highly enough of the Blowfish. The staff were so friendly and the room was very clean and comfortable. The staff cleaned it thoroughly every day and stocked the fridge with water. The AC was great and the shower had hot water every time. The staff went out of their way to make you feel at home and would even go to the supermarket over the road if you needed something. They were very polite and cheerful and really made the stay so wonderful. They were able to negotiate drivers who also acted as tour guides for a very reasonable price. The pool is nice and cool and there's a great vibe around it at night without ever being loud or hectic. There is an international crowd staying there, some on their travels and some on business. The breakfast had a huge variety available and ran for a good amount of time every morning. I was able to order meals, snacks and drinks whenever I wanted them. Seriously love this hotel and would stay again.

I have been staying at the Blowfish for short and extended stays the last 8 years. I have stayed at every luxury hotel in Lagos and find the this boutique paradise is hands down the best. I had had the pleasure of dining at every restaurant within the hotels venue and dare anyone to find a better selection of local, continental, Indian, Japanese, Italian and Lebanese fare anywhere in Lagos. The staff, from management, servers, bar staff, front desk, housekeeping and maintenance are exceptional, most of whom are long term employees which is testament to management and ownership. The pool area is an unexpected oasis and repose generally available at only 5-Star hotels. If I had to offer one critical comment, it would be the laundry prices; however, the exemplary quality of service almost makes it worth the expense. My one regret is that this hidden gem of Lagos will be discovered and the value will erode. This rating is -5 Stars for pricing, convenience, location, management, staff, food, cleanliness, guest attention and overall ambience. Well done and keep up the good work.

Guys, i am frequent traveler at Lagos for business meetings. so had a good experience to stay in different hotels in Lagos. but really to be honest, staying in The Blowfish hotel is a great experience for me till now. with a reasonable price rooms with interior even lobby ambience makes you feel it is worth of paying this rates.so value for money. rooms are very good. house keeping services and cleaning is really awesome. very much satisfied with the service and facility getting in this hotel. you can get continental,Italian as well as very good Indian food at good rates. best thing is safety for foreigners. As Hotel is situated at heart of Lagos means Victoria Island so there is no issue with security. even super market is also part of Hotel group. All daily use required items are easily available. So for me it is really worth and excellent feeling to stay at this hotel.
