Southern Sun is a well positioned hotel with a great team who provide excellent service. It's easy to go to mainland Lagos or to Victoria Island. The staff is very well trained and polite and made my stay a very pleasant one especially as it was a long trip . Truly good value for money .

Three nights in Lagos and not a single complaint. I suppose that actually deserves 5 stars... The room was good, breakfasts did what they said on the box and there is a decent gym and swimming pool. I'll definitely stay there again.

This is my third stay in the past 10 months. I like breakfast choices. Sleeping comfort is very good. I used Gym facility and it was good. Definitely I will recommend. Not very great for Vegetarians though. I like the gesture by hotels General Manager. They sent a complimentary Hennesey for the weekend :).

Nice, clean and well-kept hotel in Lagos' prime location. Friendly people, good security. Bathrooms very small but water very hot at good pressure. No international TV channels such as BBC, CNN or TV5 Food relatively monotonous, breakfast excellent, cozy bar.

Southern sun has the best buffet for any restaurant in Lagos! Pretty small rooms and staff that renind you of the typical workers that expect to be tipped for doing nothing. Overall, was a good stay. Check in was smooth and so was check out. Stress free

Friendly courteous staff and helpful. The food was great, catering for African to international dishes. Not a good idea to use carpets in rooms due to high humidity and associated problems. Very clean linen etc. the a Wifi was of high speed and quality allowing the connection of up to 3 terminals.

While i only stayed one night at the hotel it is a great hotel for business purposes. The rooms are good and the breakfast spread was vast and very good. The only negative I experienced was checking out was extremely slow and when you are in a rusj to get the day off to a good start this is annoying

Most comforting beddings ever. I don't like lodging here since the sleep is always so soothing and the color makes it even more comforting. Or maybe am just speaking for myself. Each time, I oversleep while at this hotel. I do love me some comforting, soft duvet and some soothing pillow.
