The Federal Palace Hotel, Lagos is a hidden gem. This foremost 5 star hotel is a must have luxury experience. I love the size, ambience, serenity despite its strategic location, service and cuisine. The hotel caters mainly for business people and has up to date world class facilities to make your stay in Lagos fulfilling.
