I usually like to transit and fly from Lagos international airport just like most travelers. Mainly because it has more daily flights, better rates and many carriers than other international airports in Nigeria. No wonder Lagos is a transit point for most travelers with more transit hotels, one of such is Ibis hotel ikeja,Lagos.
My friend and I checked into ibis hotel for a transit stay to catch a connecting flight to some destination in Nigeria. It was my second transit stay at this hotel, yet another experience to look forward to its hospitality.
Here is my take on transiting at ibis hotel Lagos as a traveler and guest
Ibis hotel Lagos
Its a brand on Accor hotels portfolio which is well known for over 20 complimentary brands in resorts,hotels and vacation properties globally. Ibis Lagos is a 3 star affordable accommodation with air-conditioned rooms, bed and breakfast,free WiFi, 2 bars, outdoor pool and a gym.
We booked through booking.com website https://www.booking.com/ there are other platforms such as hotels.ng https://hotels.ng/ – you can also book directly with reservation desk which operates 24-hours. At the time we booked,we got a weekend rate less than NGN21,000 – average weekly rate is from NGN20,000 to NGN25,000 depends on the outlet as there are two of this brand in Lagos.
We stayed at Ibis toyin street, its a 165 air-conditioned rooms with free WiFi, bed and breakfast. All rooms are standard with 1 double bed, same design and size. The room size are small but spacious to move around with flat screen TV, satellite channels, minibar,coffee machine, private bathrooms with warm water and a shower, no bathtub nor balcony. Its not a VIP setting nothing fancy, just the basic you need for a short stay, the rooms are neat and very cozy.
Food and Drinks
Breakfast is buffet and complimentary with an option of local and international cuisine for guest to enjoy and start a productive day. Breakfast starts at 4am, this is well planned by the hotel – as it serves the needs of guests who may have early flight to catch or morning business meetings to attend.
Lunch and dinner are served at the restaurants or you can order room service with varieties of drinks at the bar. There is also an outdoor bar by the pool, a spot to relax with good music and drinks.
Airport transfer and parking
The parking space for guests is just adequate with an underground provision and well secured.There is a hotel shuttle and transfer to the airport.
There are two brands in Lagos situated strategically to both airports with access to other places on the mainland. Although both hotels sit in busy areas, the quiet and calmness of the property is soothing.
Personally, the hotel is ideal for business travelers and passengers on transit mainly because of its room size and location. The overall standard of the hotel is impressive with basic amenities and right atmosphere. Traffic in Lagos can be unbearable most times, staying at hotels with proximity to your destination is the most sensible thing to do.
