Good basic hotel

A good basic hotel, very clean, friendly staff, but the breakfast could be an awful lot better, don't expect too much choice, because there isn't any. Basement garage is great to have, but some spots are difficult to access. WiFi available in the foyer only.

The best thing about my stay was...

Convenient to town centre

Enjoyable stay at this hotel

I arrived at this hotel on Sunday morning and found that check-in was at 2pm. I was given a room just off reception on 1st floor. The room and hotel was comfortable and reception staff were very good answering my queries and got to know me whilst i stayed there for 9 days. I couldn't fault anything about my stay and had breakfast continental style along with a cup of chocolate each morning. It was a 10 to 15 minute walk to centre of town. If in Lagos again I would happily stay here again and have no hesitation in recommending hotel for visitors to Lagos.

The best thing about my stay was...

Comfortable hotel.

Relaxed & pleasant

Nice hotel. Breakfast was basic with croissants, bread rolls, cereal etc but set you up for the morning. Rooms were cleaned thoroughly each day with fresh towels. Reception staff very friendly. Wifi in reception. About a 10 minute walk into town. Really nice stay.

Beautiful beaches & lovely town

Good experience

We were staying at Hotel Montemar for 2 weeks. Before we get there we more less knew it will be a 3 star budget hotel so we didn't expect 5 star quality. During our stay we didn't have any problems with our room or in the hotel itself. Maids were coming everyday to clean the room and to change bath towels and other stuff if it was necessary The only minus that we could point was the style of breakfast. It's very, very simply continental style but if you want to bring your own extra food there will be no problem with it. We would like to thank especially the staff from the reception. They were very helpful and they helped us with all our needs and questions. The young gentleman from the reception with blond hair was absolutely great. An apology to him but but I've forgotten his name. Coming to the end if you looking for a budget 3 star hotel with friendly stuff almost in the centre of Lagos but away from the crowds you can choose this one as we did.

The best thing about my stay was...

Friendly, helpful reception staff and appropriate 3 star quality of the place

Had a great time

Stayed here for the first time, didn't expect much because it was so cheap but was very surprised, it was extremely clean, nice room with tv, air con, beds, shower and toilet, what more do you need? Good location to town centre and friendly staff, the only thing we wasn't keen on but was still ok for the price was the breakfast, the coffee tasted funny and the cheese and ham sandwiches were a bit bland but all in all it did the trick of sobering us up, lagos is brilliant so get yourself there, call in to Zanzi bar for amazing cocktails at only 3 euros, wow

A good base to explore Lagos

I have stayed at the Montemar four times as a solo traveler,the rooms are quite small and a bit dated but are kept clean.Lots of fresh towels and plenty of hot water in the bathroom.Breakfast is included in the room price which is the same every day but is perfectly O.K. The hotel is in a good location not too far from the town center and quite close to the beaches. If you do not want to walk into town there are restaurants within 100 mtrs. Overall a budget hotel but value for money.

The best thing about my stay was...

Portugues people are genuienly friendly

Great Value

we stayed at the Montemar October 2013, and found it fantastic value for money, rooms were cleaned,and fresh towels daily,staff were very friendly, even served us at the bar, 2am. Breakfast was the same every morning, but fresh and edible.The Montemar is a bit of a walk into town, but we picked up a free map which is dotted around Lagos, and found a quicker route without the steep hill. Overall we enjoyed our stay at the Montemar,it was very quite,and had sea views. and would stay here again.

The best thing about my stay was...

Quiet at Night

comfortable friendly convenient reasonably priced

2nd time we have stayed . A good hotel in a convenient location . Excellent staff.Rooms are a good size and comfortable , but en suite facilities a little tired needing a spot of upgrading , but ok . Price-wise - well worth the money . Location easy to find nr huge suspended ball roundabout . Walking distance to beaches and marina and old part of Lagos which is downhill from hotel and a reasonably steep walk back ! Car park below hotel a little difficult to negotiate , but you get used to it and seems very safe and secure . Overall a pleasant hotel and we enjoyed our stay. Breakfast was good also .

The best thing about my stay was...

very relaxed atmosphere and our room at back very quiet .

Enjoyable time in Lagos

THIS IS MY 3RD STAY IN THIS HOTEL. THE ROOM IS CLEANED AND THE TOWELS CHANGED EVERY DAY. THE STAFF ARE HELPFUL AND WILL TRY TO DO THEIR BEST FOR YOU. THE BREAKFAST IS QUITE BASIC, ROLLS, CROISSANTS, CEREALS, JUICE ETC. BUT IT IS ALL FRESH. FOR THE PRICE IT IS VERY GOOD VALUE, OR I WOULD'NT HAVE STAYED MORE THAN ONCE.

The best thing about my stay was...

FRIENDLY LOCALS
