There is little fear that Hans Botel will show up on anyone's list of best hotels. The rooms are small and plain, the food is fair to poor and the drinks watered down. However, until live crocodiles are allowed to wander freely among the guests at your nearby Hilton, Hans will have one over on them. You read that right.... More

Went here with work colleagues for lunch on a Sunday. The food was good but not spectacular. The service was OK too. What draws you to the place are the crocodiles in the pond by and around the restaurant. If you pay a bit, one of the staff will go and feed them. There is NO protection to keep the... More

After staying in Ghana for 3 weeks having showers from a bucket of cold water I was made up to have an actual shower with hot running water at Hans cottage. Although I would say the hotel was quite average overall (and probably wouldn't be enjoyable for someone who is used to 5* hotels), the beds were comfy and clean,... More

Firstly, after being in Ghana for 3 weeks with no running water, the mere fact Hans Botel had flushing toilets and a running shower already earned it near top marks. The staff were extremely friendly, helpful and went out of their way to ensure we had all we needed. The pool was clean and refreshing, in a nice setting. We... More

I have stayed in this hotel twice before with my family but this recent visit was the worst experience of my stay in Ghana. It's not the hotel itself but the one supervisor in the restaurant that made my breakfast experience like having a root canal! This woman supervisor comes sweeps the restaurant while people are having breakfast, does not... More

Spent the night here en route to Kakum National Park. The rooms are very basic (and cheap) but have a bed, a shower and a loo which all work. There is a very pleasant open sided public area for eating, drinking and lounging to watch the birds and crocodiles in the lake around which the Botel is built. There is... More

This was a nice respite from a couple of weeks i Ghana. If youve traveled in C Africa a bit, you know all about the power outages. Over 3 days here, their generator worked during every outage. In of itself, that is great! The rooms were a bit above Central Africa standards. The grounds were excellent with great birdwatching around... More

While I have not stayed at the hotel Hans is a must visit while in Cape Coast. Beautiful setting with lots of bird viewing. Most of all you can feed and pet a real crocodile. Have a good meal in a pleasant setting. When traveling I always bring teams there for a fun visit.

First, the address they give is misleading. We could only find the place after a long time of asking locals for directions, for google maps took us to the city centre. The place is well known, though, so we managed to get there. Secondly, the pictures on the website must have been taken long ago, Now, the pond and the... More

Decent stopover traveling along the coast. Stayed here one night only, to eat and sleep before moving on. The place is a bit worn down, but not without charisma. The free running crocs is an interesting feature. Don't stroll around on the dark paths in the evening! Food and beverages is decent and overall the pricing is ok. There is... More
