Looking back on it I can now laugh but at the time it was terrible. When we arrived the hotel looked ok and was clean enough in the communal areas. In my room it was frankly disgusting! I like to have a firm mattress but the bed was hard as a board and there were insects crawling over the floor.... More

Stayed two nights (standard room, ground floor) in Mirage Calabar. The hotel location is ok. There is a good chinese restaurant and nightclub next to the hotel. Anyway, Calabar is a small city and it is easy to get around by taxis. Our room smelled of mould and the toilet looked a bit rough (bare lightbulb hanging from ceiling etc.),... More

The rooms with rug have a... More

The Mirage is an OK hotel but with little in the way of creature comforts. There are two restaurants – one being the ubiquitous Chinese Restaurant as is found in most Nigerian hotels. Calabar is a relatively safe town in Nigeria so getting around isn’t a real problem here. I have stayed at the Mirage on two occasions. As said... More
