Memo Hotel & Suites: Probably the best decent budget hotel

I haven´t stayed here but checked it up. A fresh and clean 50 room hotel in buzzling western part of Lagos Island, just beside Balogun Market, the largest market in Nigeria. The best thing is that there a both a restaurant and bar so you don´t need to venture the unlight streets of Lagos at nighttime. Also WiFi - and AC of cource. They also provide bus transport for the airport as well within the city. The real advantage of living on Lagos Island istead on Victorira Island or Ikoyi is that you can walk everywehere (on VI and on Ikoyi everything is so spread out so you need a car) and it´s much safer to walk here in the crouds than on empty sidewalks on VI! Plus it soo much more fascinating on Lagos Island. Remeber to ask for dscount! Picture of the hotel here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/nkiru/2575615441/in/faves-32000501@N03/ (the 18 storey building)

I will stay here next time I go to Lagos!

Famoss Guest House: A really cheap basic central hotel

Bar at street floor, friendly keeper watching everbody pass up to the rooms, but no receptionl. You can´t make a reservation, no phone? Very small simple rooms - basically just a big bed and nothing more, clean sheeths (bring your own mosquito net!), bathroom very simple but functional - you use a bucket of water and poor over you for shower as well as flushing the toilet. Generator just during nighttime, so no AC daytime, therefore it´s not useable during daytime due to the extreme humid heat. Lots of prostritutes living there (not working there) - they don´t bother you and are kind if you treat them respectully. There are no lockers.

Hampton Inn and Suites: Nice but a little overpriced

Stayed here for a week. Felt safe as the hotel is not advertised from the road. You have to know where you are going to know that is a hotel. The hotel is nicely decorated and the rooms are comfortable and clean. There was a large flat screen TV, airconditioning and hot shower.

The staff are very helpful and will try and cater to your every need as best as they can

Synergy suites limited: A quiet house with a pool

The hotel used to be a private house still five years ago. As a hotel this makes it rather small. The size of the rooms are small, but that seems to be the tendency. However, the area is a quiet area as the hotel is situated in Apapa GRA, Government restricted area.
The existence of the armed guards made one feel even better.

The pool area is the place where any guests to someone staying at the hotel should come and meet the person. That seems to work well, too, as in the evenings there were a number of people who were having a good time drinking at the pool area.
Yet, however, at least in Synergy, the night time was peaceful during the week, and only slightly noisier at the weekend.
The price of the hotle rooms is in categories, and I have the strong feeling our room cost close to 7000Naira for one night. It was a double room with its own bathroom.

Federal Palace Hotel

A reasonably safe hotel although anything of value is always at risk. Air conditioners when working, rumble through the night so you may get more sleep without it - well worth checking the state of the air conditioner before accepting the room as many have the Db of a 747

In spite of confirmed reservations you may be required to "dash" the folk on the front desk to get your room.

Extensive grounds for walking in the daytime but certainly not at night

House J: House J

Lagos is frightfully expensive for decent hotel options. Or at least that was our experience there.
But after much debate and deliberation, we picked up our bags from the Sheraton, where we were scheduled to stay (crazy room rates- and the rooms were very average), and headed out to this new place that someone had recommended. `The House J'...

The difference was clearly noticable. Much more personal, the staff smiled, the rooms were comfortable and the rates were a fraction of what the sheraton cost.
Also, the hotel is a recently built property, so everything works and nothing is stained or falling apart:P
