My husband and I stayed at Protea on Isaac John St. from 11/25 - 11/28 2016 (Rm309) and the service was amazing. My husband and I travel a lot, but we honestly didn't expect to have this level or service, cleanliness of the staff and an overall world-class ambiance. We had shopped around for other hotels, but i was convinced...

I've stayed several nights on a couple of recent occasions while on business in Lagos. When the basics are right in a hotel, what I look for next is a bit of buzz. Even if a hotel does not always get the basics right for some reason, it's nice to be able to give the management the opportunity to fix...

My first stay at this hotel was privately in 2007 I believe, and later on business in 2013. On both occasions I found the property above par. The service was great and the ambience well worth the price (which wasn't cheap). Managed at the time by the Protea Group great attention was paid to detail. The buffet meals always had...

I had a great stay at the Protea Hotel - will definitely book to stay here again. The service here was excellent and wifi was reliable. A wide selection of food and a good location. The only downside is the aircon was difficult to control so quite cold at times.
