Surprised at the quality but a little bit let down by the front desk staff. Room: Medium size but well appointed, nice decor and large screen TV. Ac just a little too noisy for me because I am a light sleeper. Shower and Toilet were spot on. therefore, if you are a Toilet and bathroom phobia like me, you needn't worry. Lobby cool nothing extravagant, Restaurant is fine, honestly very surprised at the variety of the breakfast, they even have PROPER beef sausages. I loved the breakfast, varieties was good, really good. We ate at the buffet dinner once, it was really nice. We also ate from the A la carte menu a few times. One was disappointing but, the chef made up for it by making a fresh one by himself for us on the house (good customer service). Gym and Sauna... Wow!! The Gym was well equipped To my Surprise, the have a proper sauna. OK it is too big but an hotel with a sauna in Lagos, well that is my first encounter. Overall, the place is really good for the price that we paid and I would definitely stay there again. Front Desk staff (Reception) get your acts together because little foxes spoil the vine. Remember there are competitions out there. You are appear to be busy but NOT well coordinated. I have to say this because you are the first point of contact, you can either make people calm or make people boil. Remember that! To those who are travelling from abroad and I say this because I live in the UK and I've worked for the Emirates Airline for 17yrs therefore, I do know a little bit about hospitality. This is a Top end 3* hotel but in Nigeria a Top end 4* hotel. You will definitely enjoy staying in this hotel because of its surprise elements. The Hotel is very safe, comfortable and relaxing. This is a classic Hotel While, we there there, we noticed a few private functions but all were well mannered and everyone carried themselves with dignity. No 'Obesere' style. We have stayed in Federal Palace Hotel before which is a UK Top end 4*(Nigeria 5*) hotel. If I have choose between the two of them, I would have to toss a coin for different reasons. Conclusion Southern City Hotel Keep up the good works.
