Enugu Hotels

Enugu has over 40 hotels and many more guesthouses within its premises. Though no international hotel chains are represented in this area, most hotels do comply with international standards and are comfortable enough for a pleasant stay. The rates are not expensive compared to the bigger cities, and the proximity to the expressway leading to Abuja, Lagos, Port Harcourt and Cameroon etc., makes it a good stopping point for long trips. Arrivals from the airport can find a place in Emene, New Haven or Thinkers Corner layout. The Enugu international trade fair provides a peak for the hotels and reservation during this period is strongly recommended.

Based on the single room rate, the hotels have been classified into five categories:

enugu hotelsModest-priced hotel or guesthouse with most basic facilities (under $8)
enugu hotelsenugu hotelsStandard hotel with facilities, such as phones, TV and AC in room ($8-$15)
enugu hotelsenugu hotelsenugu hotelsComfortable hotel, mostly with extra facilities ($15-$25)
enugu hotelsenugu hotelsenugu hotelsenugu hotelsFirst class hotels generally up to international standards ($25-$32)
enugu hotelsenugu hotelsenugu hotelsenugu hotelsenugu hotelsLuxury hotel, with a price tag attached to it (over $32)

All hotels levy a 10% service charge and 5% tax on the room rates and a deposit, at least equal to a one-night stay, is required. Also, paying the local residential rates in Naira pays off, as the credit card and foreign currency rates are substantially higher.

Each of the hotels has its range of facilities listed using the following symbols below.

The 2 tennis courts (tennis rackets and balls are available), 25 m swimming pool, basket ball court, football field, the lake and forest, park with playground facilities and benches ideal for picnic turn the hotel into a complete resort. Top floor rooms provide a view of the natural surroundings and the suites are equipped with a kitchen. The night club interior is quite nice, but unfortunately not in use anymore. You can also ask the cook to make a barbecue next to the pool. Expensive, but a very nice resort outside the town if you are looking for attractive settings, and if not already used for venues. This hotel has apparently a similar sister branch close to Nsukka.
