Good service and friendly staff at hotel. Even returned the tip I left for housekeeping. Kindly let me use a meeting room free of charge. Good restaurant space where I was able to do some other meetings. Facility safe and clean. Internet works surprisingly well, even for streaming Netflix. Food decent, with breakfast buffet. Not many vegetables on offer and did feel a little ill after a green salad one night. Hot water plentiful in room, but via bucket as shower head not working. A/C worked fine and good generator backup. Bed decently comfortable. Good screens on windows, so nice to be able to get some fresh air. A couple of mosquitoes in the room, a little smell in the bathroom, but not bad given location. Reasonably priced. Will definitely stay here again when in the area.
I regret staying in this hotel. I stayed 5 night in this hotel on my last day my wallet that contain all my ATM cards, money and vital documents was taken away. I wouldn't say the wallet was stollen outside the hotel because I used my ATM card to pay for my last night in the hotel before I went to bed. The next day in the morning a cleaner came in to clean my room, in less than an hour after I could find my wallet anymore. It was so deverstating and frustrating. I called the manager's attention but nothing was done to recover my stollen wallet. This hotel is tagged 4star just to make a name, I would prefer to stay in a 3star hotel with my things safe. *I will never stay in this hotel again*
This is a hotel with two conference rooms, some outdoor seating for about 20 people, and what looks like three floors of about 30 rooms. The service is excellent and the staff attentive. Taking into account but this is upcountry in Nigeria the accommodation at Dankani is as good as it gets. The rooms are large, have good AC, they are freshened daily, have multi-station satellite TV including, for example, CNN, Al Jazeera , Star-UK, and suchlike. This is the location used by the state government and accordingly they have instituted some security measures for those entering the compound. The restaurant is fairly limited; Sokoto city will likely never be a foodies destination. There is an adequate African-style breakfast buffet, Nescafe, and some coolers with carbonated beverages and water. Add a pinch and with a respectful request you can get toast and scrambled egg and other items as an alternative to the exotica. Wi-Fi is available and part of the accommodation charge, as is breakfast. The Wi-Fi is relatively fast and available in all rooms as well as reception. The location is convenient for access to/from the airport and to the five local universities, plus government offices. For those perhaps concerned about 'safety' ~ this territory is overseen by the Sultan who serves as the religious and administrative ruler over all Muslims in northwest Nigeria. He is revered and has set a non-violence tone throughout Sokoto state and city. This is, for example, a perfectly safe place to walk around unaccompanied during the day without harassment or in fact without anything except smiles and respectful nods from the Sokoto-residents.

Stayed here for a week whilst in Sokoto. Hotel was fine, room spacious and clean, reasonable wifi for the location, but best of all the service was excellent. Staff on reception, laundry, cleaners and restaurant all very helpful, and made my stay hassle free. Recommended for any business traveller visiting Sokoto.
With 20k naira, you get the service of a 40-50k hotel in Lagos or Abuja. It gets filled up quickly and it is about 10 mins from the airport and 5 mins from Usman Dan Fodio Teaching Hospital. The best bits of the breakfast finishes at 9a.m. Ambience is very good, a lot of outdoor spaces for the night time discussions. Rooms were clean, spacious & well furnished. Attendants are warm, courteous & ready to help, from reception to restaurant. Room service may take a while (45mins). Always ask for what is available before ordering. The food is generally salty. The fried rice is more like curried rice and the chicken was deep fried. Salad is just a handful of mixed vegetables. It was a pleasant surprise and I will choose Dankani next time.
