Hotels with international standards of comfort, service and convenience provide both business travelers and vacationers with a warm welcome and reflect the state’s rising aspirations and efforts to attract visitors
Set in landscaped gardens in the Guili area of Sokoto City and appointed to match the high standards set by international hotel chains, the Giginya Coral Hotel provides visitors with the warmest of welcomes and is tangible evidence of how the state is on the rise. Opened in 2011, the modern, 269-room, 26-suite hotel prides itself on its attentive 24-hour service and range of facilities on offer. All rooms are equipped with services such as satellite TV, mini-fridge, WiFi Internet, private bathrooms, and air-conditioning. In addition, each room in the four-wing hotel features an open-air balcony, affording great views of the outdoor pool, gardens, city or golf course next to the hotel.
Its Lavender restaurant serves both traditional Nigerian and continental cuisine, and its banqueting hall caters for up to 300 people, while its meeting room can hold up to 80 conventioners.
A sister hotel, the Shukura Coral Hotel, opened a year earlier on Kano Road, also in the Guili district of the capital. It too offers equally impressive facilities and a mix of chalet, room and suite accommodation of the same high standard.
As Sokoto develops both its business and tourism offer, demand for such accommodation will undoubtedly continue to grow.
