This is a very acceptable hotel in Abuja, with sensible room rates, the restaurant is fine and the staff very helpful and friendly. Went with a strict vegetarian and they went out of their way to do bespoke food just for him - excellent. The rooms are comfy and clean, although the bathrooms could do with a little work. However,... More

New and shiny, but don't be deceived. Service is poor (ok, nonexistent!). My colleague was actually told he couldn't have more oatmeal for breakfast (free buffet!). Overpriced. Things in rooms are already starting to break. Go elsewhere....

Not sure of the general standards of hotels in Abuja but I found this one pretty horrible. The rooms are old and grotty, the bedlinen smelt terrible and had bodily secretions embedded in it. Food was horrible - they have an all day buffet and it pretty much looks like it has been there all day. Avoid.

Located in Area 11 off Gymbia Street, on Port Harcourt Crescent. A busy nightclub area so lots of places to sit outside for a drink, food, music or a soccer game on tv. Basic accomodation, but clean, reliable water, electricity and best internet that I have found in Nigeria! Staff are very cheerful, great Nigerian food. Supermarket across the street... More

a fairly good hotel, especially if compared with the 7 or 8 other hotels I checked before choosing the Crystall Palace. A good trade-off between price and overall quality. rooms are clean enough, internet, although slow is available in the rooms, the restaurant provides cheap food at all times and one can get a discount for stays longer than 3...

I was most put off this hotel by the lazy, slow reacting staff who smile and seem polite but are unhelpful generally. I phoned for help and it took over an hour for someone to come up to the room- which I wanted to change. I was promised a change but it never came, eventually exhausted I tried to sleep.... More

The Crystal Palace is a home from home in Abuja for VSO volunteers in Nigeria. The staff have always made us extremely welcome and 'really try' to help. In the past few months many of the rooms have been modernised and are looking sleek although don't look too closely at some of the workmanship (a general piece of advice for... More

Of the 5 hotels I tried this was the cheapest by far at £58 for the best room in the house! It may have been the cheapest but it wasn't the worst. It was in my opinion the best value for money. You would need to be fairly independent and willing to go out of the hotel to find good... More
