This is Nigeria. What this means is that nothing ever goes as expected. Even if it starts well at first, it will still go north at some point. Looking for serviced apartments in Nigeria? Prepare for the following things.
1. First of all, prepare to pay with your inheritance.
Serviced apartments are quite pricey. But that should be a good thing if they are doing what you expect of them, right? WRONG.
2. Poor power supply.
Imagine renting a serviced apartment to escape the power issues in Nigeria and the serviced apartment still gives you the same power troubles. Things are happening, my dear.
3. Water issues.
Poor power supply will happen and you think your water supply will not be affected? Lol. Serviced apartment in the mud.
4. Expect to buy your own generator.
Or your inverter. Because at some point, water will pass garri.
5. Or perhaps prepare to contribute for fuel.
Even after paying for service charge oh. Of course, they will give you an explanation for it. But will it make complete sense? No. Will you contribute for the fuel? Yes.
6. If the building runs on a solar system, it will surely become weak.
And you’re back to numbers 2, 3, 4, and 5. Don’t say we did not tell you.
7. Buy a standing fan. AC will probably act up at some point.
Not that we are wishing you bad oh, but if the other fuck ups can happen, what is an ordinary AC that won’t act up?
8. Expect your neighbours to move mad.
Service apartment pay doesn’t include service charge for good neighbours, unfortunately.
So, do with this information what you like. We wish you the very best in your serviced apartment.
