The hotel is in good shape and has an excellent view of the Atlantic Ocean; this can be savoured from the well-kept courtyard; though the peacocks at the courtyard seem to give a better welcoming smile than the reception staffs.

I like big hotels, but often find you can sort of get ignored in ne. But that isn't the case with Federal Palace. The service is great, the rooms are clean, and the have an awesome buffet lunch.

I went back to the Federal Palace after a few stays in other hotels and I still think it's the best option for Lagos. Easy check in, friendly staff, good food and lovely grounds. The Wi-Fi works much better now as well.

A great hotel that offers a calm and tranquil atmosphere. It has an excellent pool complex with slide. Shade was in short supply around the pool as the sun parasols were ineffective. The free crazy golf looks great fun but it was too hot for us in the sun. Also the out door fitness stations were well maintained. The hotel...

The hotel has a wonderful ambience and serenity. In a city that is characterised by lots of noise, you'll wonder about the quiet environment at the hotel. The service was excellent. I enjoyed the fine dining. I'm going back soon to enjoy those steaks again.

The Federal Palace Hotel is one of the oldest luxury hotels in Lagos (probably in Nigeria). Refurbished in recent times, it is now a cool & calm oasis in the midst of this hustling & bustling city. Great swimming pool area, nice rooms, good restaurants and onsite casino and a whole lot more.
