Tips on Getting a Good Hotel Accommodation in Nigeria

Where you will be staying after your arrival in Nigeria is perhaps one of the most important things that you have to plan if you are thinking of visiting Nigeria. Getting a hotel might be the thing to do if you are visiting Nigeria after staying abroad for a while. BUT, getting a decent hotel accommodation is often a daunting task because most of the time, is it is hard to find useful information. Here are some effective tips on getting a hotel accommodation in Nigeria to help your planning of visiting Nigeria.

TIPS ON GETTING A GOOD HOTEL ACCOMMODATION IN NIGERIA

Location- How close is it from the airport? The very first thing to consider when booking your hotel is its location. Since you have been away for some time, going out in the middle of the night is always possible and to prevent any danger after a night out, a hotel that is accessible is the best to stay.

Booking Online- Can you book online? This is another important question, especially if you are landing in the middle of the night. You need to be able to book your hotel online as it will make your movement from the airport to the hotel easier. With online booking, even before you leave from abroad, you can book your hotel and then move to your hotel immediately after your arrival in Nigeria.

Free transportation- In addition to accommodation, some hotels also has airport shuttles that will take their guests from the airport straight to the hotel. This will save you the hassle of having to hire your own taxi or cab.

 

Hotel Rate- Before booking, make sure that you get enough information especially on how much you will be charged as hotel’s room rates differ depending on its type and setting . For instance, in House J Suites, they have the following prices for some of their hotel rooms:

ROOM TYPE

The inclusive rates quoted above are the room rates per night which include breakfast, free use of the internet, gym and swimming pool. In addition, the hotels also render airport shuttle services. A pick up from the airport is N5, 000. However, you will need to give them the details of your flight so that they can come and pick you up at the right time.
