Park Inn By Radisson Abeokuta

Radisson Blu Anchorage Hotel is not the only hotel Radisson in Nigeria. Park Inn by Radisson in Abeokuta, located around 100 km from Lagos, is another one. It is not up to the standards of the Lagos hotel, but it is a very comfortable hotel that certainly is up to Park Inn’s standards. 
The hotel located in a different state than Lagos and it was interesting to see a different part of Nigeria. The staff is very friendly and the food is excellent. Jonathan Yusuf is a talented chef and I loved his roasted potatoes.
I can highly recommend combining a visit to Lagos with a day or two in Abeokuta. It will also give you the chance to experience Olumo Rock, a beautiful tourist attraction I enjoyed and recommend.
