Bad hotels are everywhere, good hotels are barely there, but great hotels? They are few and in between. I’ve stayed in a lot of hotels and AirBnB’s around the world, so I think I know a bit of how to differentiate a good hotel from a bad one. This list below is of THE BEST hotels in Abuja – amenities, qualities and most importantly – CLASS. You know they will be a bit pricey, but it’s definitely worth it.
In a not so scary order here’s my list of BEST hotels in Abuja:
- Transcorp Hilton
- Fraser suites
- Nordic Villa
- Sheraton Hotels
- The Envoy Hotel
- The Wells Carlton
1. Transcorp Hilton
This hotel is arguably one of the finest I’ve been into in Abuja – and I’ve been to quite a few. I love their attention to detail and all the flex, and also how seriously they seem to take themselves.
Transcorp Hilton Hotel offers exquisite facilities like 3 tennis courts, volleyball courts, 3 squash courts and a basketball court, an outdoor pool, a really dope fitness centre, business centre with internet access, suites and six restaurants. These restaurants offer a variety of Mediterranean and Nigerian delicacies.
2. Frasier Suites
Fraser Suites Abuja presents a wide range of hotel apartments, from studios to 4-bedroom penthouses, each offering spectacular views across the lush city landscape or the impressive central atrium. All units have been exquisitely appointed with contemporary interiors and luxurious finishes, while also featuring avantgarde kitchenettes, internet-enabled Smart TVs, Nespresso machines and L’Occitane bathroom amenities.
3. Nordic Villa Hotel
Nordic Villa is furnished in a modern Scandinavian style and offers suites and rooms in a peaceful and safe environment suited for both business and leisure travelers.
Located at Mike Akhigbe Way, Jabi, Abuja, I love the scenic experience.
4. Abuja Continental Hotel (Formerly Sheraton Abuja Hotel)
Located in the heart of Abuja, in Zone 4, Sheraton Abuja has been around for a while. It has spacious rooms, private balconies, signature bed and an all round ambience you are sure to love. I have stayed there and would love to do that again and again. There’s also airport shuttle, a fitness center, state of the art pool and a really nice relaxation bar.
5. The Envoy Hotel
The Envoy Hotel is nestled within the business hub on Diplomatic Drive, not so far from the US Embassy. I’ve been there a couple of times, and I love it. It offers 59 rooms comprising of 50 Luxury Suites, four Diplomatic Suites, four VIP Suites and one Presidential Suite.It’s stylish amenities, generous hospitality and world-class security will provide the ideal meeting place for diplomats, envoys and businessmen alike.
