Ikoyi is quickly becoming the most exclusive neighborhood in Lagos and the Three Arms Hotel is buried in the center of that growth. While most hotels here have security on the perimeter of the property, visitors have to pass through one checkpoint at the edge of the neighborhood then another at the hotel, so it’s safe to say that security is fairly tight.
Once inside, residents will find a personable, boutique hotel with only 22 rooms. Each of the rooms has a different footprint, but most are fairly cozy with only a little bit of extra room beyond the bed. A small flat-screen TV with a half-dozen channels and a minibar share the desk, leaving ample room to work. To that end, there’s a modest Wi-Fi signal canvassing the entire property, though it’s not strong in every room; it’s best to ask at the front desk during check-in if there’s a concern.
Three Arms’ real strength comes in its public area, which is tastefully decorated in Victorian furniture and elegant fixtures. Since the capacity of the hotel is so small, common areas of the area feel more like a shared public space, and the staff and visitors become quite sociable. The Wi-Fi signal may be undetectable in some of the rooms, but it works well in the café and outdoors, and many use this area to be productive. In addition, various office functions can be facilitated through the front desk, although there isn’t a dedicated business center. There are also two conference rooms available for booking.
Since the hotel is fairly deep within Ikoyi, visitors won’t find much worth seeing in the immediate area around the hotel. To stay busy, there’s a modest outdoor pool with a handful of lounge chairs and a small workout room adjacent. The restaurant at Three Arms is one of the few in the area that doesn’t enforce a buffet during dinner hours. Instead, diners can order from a variety of Nigerian dishes as well as standard western favorites such as T-bone steaks. The selection isn’t enormous, but the dishes are quite tasty.
