After every checks on various hotel along the airport I manage to give this hotel a go but it all came out to be a very terrible decision. I paid N31000 for a superior room which is just too much after the terrible experience. the room number is 203 and it all started with the Wifi going off in the room, I reported thrice before they could change the room for me. and after changing the room another issue with the bath tub so I was finally giving a 4th floor with a sad view and very stuffy, rusty bins, unsafe shower, dust flying everywhere. On the next morning I went for breakfast to be surprised I saw nothing but 3 types of hotdogs, breads, 4 plates of fruits & vegs, fried egg, rice,? and I asked where is yam but they say is not on there rosta for that day and they call it "breakfast buffet". I went to the management to inform but all they could say is they are sorry crap. I will strongly advise travellers to be cautious of this hotel and not be deceived by the big building from the look. is dirty, old, staffs are cold. If you work to earn your money this hotel is not a place for you too have a safe lodge to enjoy your stay in Lagos.
My stay at Welcome centre was indeed awesome. Accommodation perfect, though the food is a NO-NO for me, I was able to drive out to get food for myself. All amenities are in good condition and the cable channels are as clear as expected.
the hotel is located less than 10 mins from the Lagos international airport. Its clean, staff is friendly, check in / check out process is ok, WiFi works on all floors, it feels safe and there are several buffet meals. The hotel has a pool, bar, gym, valleyball field, multipurpose hall and computers room. Rooms are big enough, bathrooms are good. Some rooms get the noise from the power generator, but its not too loud.
I had good time during my stay in this hotel, really don't have any complain. Security wise very good. Customer service very good both check in and check out. I will stay in this hotel next time I visit Lagos. My wife and I had really good time all through our stay in this hotel.
this would have been much better if the promise of airport transport were fulfilled. spent a lot of time and money calling both the hotel and their booking agents who also called several times to organise transport from the domestic airport to the hotel, the only reason to stay there was to handle the layover between connecting flights safely and comfortably. i would have been in serious trouble if I didn't find kind fellow travellers at the airport to get me to the hotel in their own taxi. i was assured several times the driver would be waiting for me, identified. no such thing happened, the airport officials had no idea what hotel i was referring to nor where they waited for passengers in other words the promise of a transport was a joke. worse yet the phone number on the internet and quoted by the agent and in the emails from the concierge WAS OUT OF ORDER, no answer. called many times from airport, nothing. The next morning the transport back to the airport was done all ad hoc. not prepared in advance. but front desk was very nice and tried hard in attitude to compensate for the failure of service promised. the breakfast buffet was really below par, i don't understand where TA reviewers have been to praise this offering to the skies but no matter again everyone friendly enough Trying to get an extra tea bag in my room having pre-tipped yielded a ridiculous altercation with a bell-man who actually refused to provide the tea bag in his hand because I already had one in the tea service in the room. Marvelously petty. Worthy of Fawlty Towers. The ugusi soup wasn't bad but way overpriced, the desserts on the menu were not available in fact. Hot water took about 20 minutes to emerge so the shower I so looked forward to was not to be. Most of the water landed on the floor, poor bathroom infrastructure. The glass shelf over the wash basin on a 45 degree slant, though unlikely to fall off completely. I guess. The DSTV worked really well, though, and the staff were generally very nice, apart from the stupid bell hop with the tea bag You could do a lot worse and now that i know how to manage the transport pickup i would go back to these folks if I needed to stay again near the airport, sure I would. Attitude is ten times more important than infrastructure; that's especially true in Lagos, the NYC of West Africa. Brace yourself for the fellow guests, however, a snottier and derisive attitude among Americans in general is hard to come by. worthy of a sociological study.
Friendly staff... Restaurant choices very limited... large rooms and beds, good conditions for Nigeria, The Welcome Centre Hotel offers good service. Hotel is very close to Lagos airport - which makes this a must-stay considering the traffic situation in Lagos. Taxi service always available
As a regular visitor I appreciate the efficient checking-in process and friendly staff. The rooms are comfortable, roomy and clean with good shower facilities. Good wi-fi and the provision of a kettle and coffee in the room is not something you routinely find in Nigeria and is much appreciated. Being close to the airport is an added bonus.
It was our first time at the hotel and our experience was very positive. The hotel is neat, very close to the airport and the staff members are very courteous and prompt to their responsibilities. The rooms are spacious and neat and comparable to what is obtainable in Europe and else where. We will certainly use the hotel when next we are Nigeria.
The Welcome Centre Hotel offers great service, good food and breakfast which is incorporated into the room price. Hotel is very close to Lagos' International and Domestic airports - which makes this a must-stay considering the traffic situation in Lagos. Taxi service readily available outside.
Was disappointed cos I expected better value for my money. The space in the room was small and the bathroom was even smaller. Staff attitude was appalling (front desk and restaurant). Only plus was the place seemed safe. I certainly would not visit again
