Lagos offers a myriad of choice hotels but The Southern Sun establishment is dedicated to providing exemplary guest relations. The professionalism and friendliness of the staff makes for a pleasant and comfortable stay. Though the facility could use a few upgrades the ambience exudes timeless elegance and convenience.

The helpful friendly staff at the Southern Sun Ikoyi is their biggest asset. I have stayed a couple of times in recent months and found the customer service to be fantastic on both visits. The rooms and buffet breakfast are also of a good quality. Easy access makes the Southern Sun a good choice to avoid the traffic on Victoria... More

I enjoyed a one week stay. the rooms are very good. Service was good and the employees are warm and welcoming. The only thing I didn't like and maybe its because am Kenyan is the booking team insisting that I had to pay before I got a room. Otherwise everything else was ok.

The Reception was pleasant, however the room was nothing to write home about for a 4* hotel to say the least i was disappointed with Southern Sun. The food was awful no much of a choice and i was shocked when asked to pay NGN 6800 for an eleven child breakfast. Overall my stay wasnt as pleasant has i expected.

Many of the people who work here have been kind however many have also been rude. I witnessed my driver be talked down to by the men who work in the entrance. I guess they do not want cars that are not BMW's in the front of their hotel longer than a minute. At night the staff seem to become... More

Very convenient, quiet and friendly staff. High point was check in allowed as early as 6am provided room is availablebif jotel is notified in advance while it can still be done from 11am. Nice food. Awesome breakfast. Good wifi. No complaints really. Bathmats should be provided in bathtubs though to reduce risk of slipping in the bath.

Once a while you will find a smaller hotel, but very cozy not too boutique. The staff are excellent and recognise you throughout your stay. Food at restaurant are great, gym and other facilities above average.

Friendly service, efficient internet connectivity and all the ammenities make this an ideal hotel for the business person. Location excellent for travel in Ikoyi or Victoria Island. Security, which is important in this part of the world, is really good. Home away from home.
