Favorite Boutique Hotels in Lagos
I really enjoy mixing my stays between brand name hotels and boutique hotels. Boutique hotels offer you some sort of private and quiet feel that you sometimes may not get with brand hotels especially in Lagos. Boutique hotels are a great way to save money on accommodation in Lagos and honestly, you’re getting good value for your money. Also, sometimes you just want to get away from the overcrowded chain hotels. Here are some of Lagos hidden boutique hotels that offer you great service and that homely feel you’re looking for
1. Morning Spa & Suites – Located on Etim Inyang, very close to Cool FM & Chocolate Royale. I like the location of this place because of its close proximity to restaurants and banks and its cozy feel. They serve breakfast daily as well.
2. Angle Villa – Located in Lekki Phase 1, off Admiralty Way, this chic boutique hotel is favored among Nigerian celebrities and the contemporary style gives it a nice feel. It is close enough to the main street but far enough that it feels like you’re not in Lagos. They also have a nice restaurant downstairs with good cocktails. I love the Yam chips here – yummy + worth it!
3. Maple Cottage – Located in Lekki Phase 1, this off the beaten path hotel is not on the radar but offers you the privacy you are looking for in Lagos. It has a nice restaurant that serves the best “fisherman jollof rice” – it is a must try.
4. Maison Fareinheit – Located in Victoria Island, opposite Eko Hotel & Suites, this chic and modern hotel offers you an unprecedented view of the city and a great access to restaurants and bars in the area. It has a nice rooftop bar.
