Lagos Hotels 2nd Most Expensive Globally – Research By The Hogg Robinson Group by wills(m): 10:40am On Aug 19, 2012
A recent research by the Hogg Robinson Group (HRG) has ranked hotels in Lagos as the second most expensive in the world behind Moscow, which oligarchs and bling reputation, pushed to first on the ranking.

According to the results of a poll conducted in 50 cities worldwide, a hotel room in Lagos cost an average of £217.05.

The report claimed the high rate of hotel rooms in the state could be attributed to the 'high volume of inbound business travel connected with the oil industry'.

It added security concerns in the security forces travellers to stay in five-star accommodation.

Behind Lagos in third place was Geneva with rooms priced at an average of £215.92, the survey said that hotel prices across the Eurozone had 'either fallen or remained flat'.

The survey also found that prices of hotel rooms had increased in both Tokyo and Dubai as they recovered from last year's earthquake, tsunami and Arab Spring.

Done twice a year, the HRG research looks at hotel room prices for key business destinations.

For the shitty services some of the so called 5 star hotels in Lagos and Abuja provide, plus the poor salary it pays its staff and horrendous condition of service. I will say the management of these hotels(their foreign collaborators and local partners) are simply profiteering.

Its Lagos, its Nigeria... consumers are always at the mercy of any greedy business men.. The government care less about regulation or ensuring people get value for Money, after all if people in this Government like Oronto Douglas, have a room in trans-crop Hilton he has kept for year now,see source http://www.economist.com/blogs/baobab/2012/08/nigeria?zid=309&ah=80dcf288b8561b012f603b9fd9577f0e So tell me who cares what people pay ? .....

Lagos Hotels. I thought Lagos Hotels were the most expensive. So we are second. The facilities are world class. Lagos happens to be the best City to enjoy money in terms of cash and carry enjoyment. And no comfortable Nigerian lives abroad. Except those who are expatriates and need to work for 20 yrs to be able to afford a terrace duplex in the Lekki, Ikoyi and Victoria Island. I love Lagos, home and homely.

GUY, This is Home Gate Hotel in Lekki Phase 1. I love the beds in home gate and rooms have good lighting. But its one of the cheapest at average of $200 per night. Its a good comparison in terms of the price but not by infrastructure. Uproot that Dubai Hotel to Nigeria, am sure it will be $1000 per night.

It didnt call for judgement on the sources of income. It simply judges the prices of reservations.

Everytime Lagos, wetin? $217 per night, that's over 30 Gs? What will they say about Abuja hotels then? Did they get their statistics from P. Diddy and Rihanna?

The thread didn't call for comparisons on standards of structures and designs, its just illumination on how money is spent in Lagos and the cost of Hotels. When you compare American Hotels with Nigerian Hotels, you chose to ignore the fact that America is more than 235yrs old and almost 52yrs. Sometimes I wonder if most of you use constructive reasoning before you insult your country while enslaving yourselves abroad.

Like i said it's call for.... And living abroad does not mean slaves if thats your own definition of abroad. most of the 4 and 5 star hotels in vegas were completed in this new millenium... And plz sir, we're talking about hotels not university... I have been to SA, GH, BOTSWANA, and their hotel are way better than room and parlour you called hotels in nigeria. Kindly look for ways to travel out and see things yourself rather than sitting at home listening to the garbage your hunry fellas are giving you.

So only the emboldened goes for 28k in Lagos? You'd better get your priority right and stop fooling yourself. I can list hotels that charge that amount for their 'standard rooms'. Go to opebi, Ikoyi, many others in Lekki phase 1, magodo, etc. You're a mongrel that jumps at every thread to display your inane foolishness.

In Nigeria / Lagos,

- you have to generate your own security (40% increase in cost)

- you have to generate your own power (40% increase in cost)

- you have to generate your own water (20% increase in cost)
