Situated right above Lagos iconic meeting place "Mimar snack bar", at the very heart of Lagos old town. This Historic building was once a primary school for girls, renovated keeping some of the old features perfectly integrated to it's new funstion. Lovely retro decor, confortable and fun !!
We own and run Mimar Snack Bar, downstairs from Old School B&B. Attending to guest is our way of living and we love it !!
