The rooms are a bit small but hey, it's a city centre hotel. This was a last minute booking for a work engagement that dragged on for longer than planned. Staff were extremely courteous and very helpful. The hotel was clean. View wasn't so bad although there was a construction site next door. The highlight for me was the breakfast...

The welcome was a little muted but as the week went on we found that staff were helpful and good humored. Perhaps the rooms are a...

Awesome experience at the Southern Sun Hotel. I had a swell time and I must say, I didn't expect the personalized music and birthday song from the hotel staff. It was a fabulous time with my Hubby and I. Thanks for an awesome experience and kudos to the waiters and chefs. The seafoods...mamamia...The best.

Getting to the hotel, I was greeted really well so no complaints there. I checked in but I had to go and look for the room myself. No porter? Getting into the room, the smell that met me was awful. It had that muggy, mildew, mouldy smell. This is room 321 by the way. The AC was already on sounding...

I enjoyed their breakfast buffet at the hotel with lot of variety to select from. The hotel is neat despite the age meaning the Engineering team and Hotel management are doing a good work. The room was comfortable and relaxing, good housekeeping staff. In all, I enjoyed my stay. Still one of the best in Lagos.

Within the 'chaos' of Lagos, this has been a little oasis of delight. The staff are all friendly, and nothing seems to be too much for them.

Loved the people, the food (especially breakfast!!!) and the location. There was a bit of a mixup with the room type so be sure to reiterate specifics such as Two Beds if sharing... all in all. No complaints here!
