“A lot of hype about the hotel apartment - leaves you with an anti-climax when you visit”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2012

Nice hotel apartment in a bad location, at the edge of a slum. We generally had a nice holiday, though, as we arranged for a car hire to pick us up and return us to within the premises throughout our ten-day holiday. The location was so unexpected that we did not feel safe strolling round the premises. Thus, we missed the usual evening strolls that we take whenever we are on holidays abroad. There was a stench from the so called sea-side/beach (which was just a stretch of blackish clay/muddy soil, that the staff claimed used to be a stable); and especially from an open drainage that ran behind the fence where our apartment was located. The remedy was that we maintained closed windows throughout. Luckily, the airconditioners were in very good condition. The staff had an air of false friendliness around her, too. The same hotel-apartment in an excellent location would have been truly paradise.

Room Tip: All the rooms are generally good; just as long as you do not look over the perimeter fence of the pr...

We had a very good stay at La Paradis Inn . Being in Accra for the first time we were excellently guided by Donna about where to go and what to see. The atmosphere at the house was always nice ,welcoming and serviceminded. You could eiher make your food or eat in the restaurant. Mostly European cooking, which we enjoyed!

We stayed at La Paradise Inn on our recent stay in Ghana. It was a slice of paradise, a cozy inn (that feels like a B&B ) with terrific, personable staff. It is in a quiet location, big, clean, air conditioned rooms with kitchenettes and Donna and all the staff were a huge help to us during our 4 day stay. They helped us get a great driver (Eric) who took us to the Elima, the Cape Coast and Kakum National Park and also toured us around Accra. They borrowed us some Ghana $$ until we could get to a bank and even let us use their personal phones for a work emergency. They will provide terrific meals if interested and sage advice. This place is a gem and I would highly recommend it....it is an oasis!

Wonderful B&B near the beach in Accra. Rooms are large, clean and air-conditioned and the garden is a quiet green oasis to relax away from the hustle and bustle of Accra. The owner, Donna, is fabulously friendly, always up for a chat, and provided a stack of good sightseeing ideas including Jamestown as well as the Artists Alliance Gallery and Lapadi Beach and La Pleasure Beach, the last three being under five minutes away by taxi. Security and food were good and the area felt quite safe (being my first trip to Accra). Also appreciated the free upgrade to a one-bedroom apartment. Really, quite a little gem and will definitely return.

If you define excellence as a typical hotel with a focus on American amenities this b and b may not be for you. However, if a pleasant and clean room with owners that care very much that you enjoy your stay matters, this is the place. They engage with you from moment one, creating an environment where you get to know them (Donna, for example, walked with me for an hour to find what I needed to buy and helped me make the purchase.) and where you can meet other guests if you choose to as you dine by the pool.

Room Tip: There are rooms with ocean views and rooms without.

We stayed at La Paradise Inn for a few nights when we first arrived in Accra. Donna (the owner) is very pleasant and greeted us warmly. It's a small place, but with surprisingly large, comfortable rooms, a nice pool and a small terrace for an afternoon drink. The property is very private, without feeling like you're sealed off. It isn't the most central location, but it is in a residential area, so what you lose in location, you gain in peace. A good area for restaurants (Oxford Street and around) is about a 10 minute cab ride away. Overall, a great place to stay.

My wife, daughter and I spent four wonderful says a La-Paradise, and frankly, this place was a splendid oasis from the noise and traffic of Accra. I have traveled a great deal, but have never - and I mean never - found the proprietors of any inn or hotel as warm and helpful as Donna and Vitto. They were just great. The rooms were large and the air conditioning provided a relief that is rare in Ghana. Everything was clean, and everything worked! The general atmosphere was truly one of a family. There is a little courtyard where guests can get to know each other, and this almost inevitably leads to very pleasant and informative relationships. It is my pleasure actually to call Donna and Vitto my friends. I honestly cannot praise La-Paradise Inn enough.
