Where to stay in Lagos

Plans for grand resorts and hotels in Lagos are underway thanks to the nation's economic boom; otherwise, visitors have mostly three-star and four-star hotels to choose from. However, you can splurge on a luxurious hotel styled by a Swedish hospitality designer on Victoria Island's waterfront, in the city's business hub. Among midrange hotels, explore the four-star hotels on Victoria Island, a 20-minute drive to the beach. You can also find many different well-equipped inns, guesthouses, and motels offering airport pick-up services.
