What are the best places to stay in Lagos (Nigeria), safe, inexpensive, and with reliable electricity? I am planning a trip for two in a few weeks.
Staying in Lekki or will Victoria Island be a really good idea.
You can check Nigerian OTAs like hotels.ng for reviews etc.
Some of my favourites are Eko Hotels & Suites , Maison Fahrenheit Hotel and Radisson Blu Anchorage Hotel.
Mentioned in this answer:
From a foodies perspective, I would strongly suggest seeking out street vendors who prepare "Suya" (spicy grilled beef kabobs), and trying some of the local soups with groundnut (peanuts) and "fufu" (pounded yam).
I wasn't a fan of the soups with okra (consistency issues) but they are all delicious.
The fresh, local mangoes are amazing, too!
