“Acacia guest lodge North Legon”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

There are two Acacia Guest Lodges, one is in North Kanashie and the other one, where I stayed, is in North Legon. The guest house is quite far from the aiport ( 20 - 25 minutes) and there was a misunderstanding regarding the free shuttle service. It seems that only the pick up from the aiport is free and that guests have to pay for the taxi from the guesthouse to the airport. As this was not mentioned anywhere on the website, the owner agreed that I did not have to pay for the taxi and promised to correct it. The guesthouse itself is basic, very clean with a beautiful garden, and the staff extremely helpful and friendly. As I used the lodge for a transit on my way to Monrovia, it is too far from the airport but I would recommend it for a longer stay as the price is reasonable compared to other hotels/accommodation in Accra. Breakfast was included (great!)but when I asked for something to eat upon my arrival at 22.30 hrs, the kitchen was closed and no food available.

Acacia Guest Lodge in North Kanashie is about 20-25mins away from the Accra airport. Our standard room was spacious, decent and clean. The staff cleaned our room and made our bed daily. However, some of the amenities were not functioning (i.e. mini fridge, TV, etc.) and some needed maintenance. For instance, the towel hanger fell apart the first night we got there and the top piece of the faucet head over the sink fell off. But these things did not bother us much since we were happy with the free WiFi access and the AC was working. We enjoyed our daily continental breakfast served in our room or at the hotel restaurant (per your own preference). In addition, we also appreciated the free airport pickup by the hotel when we first arrived at Accra (this needs to be arranged with the hotel by calling in advance before your arrival. The hotel booking we had only provided a p.o. box address for the hotel). We had to pay for our taxi ride when leaving for the airport from the hotel (it was a nominal amount: 10 cetis). We also experienced a blackout during our last day there, which lasted for a few hours. Fortunately, we were out sightseeing for the most part of the blackout and the electricity was back when we returned.

One needs to know that Acacia Guest Lodge has two locations and sometimes taxi drivers may get confused with the two locations. Be sure to have the hotel's number and address with you at all times. That way, you won't get lost even though it may take some time to get there. Please also note that Acacia Guest Lodge is located in an average Ghanaian neighborhood and you will see dirt roads and cobble grounds. At night, you will see locals coming out and hanging out at the bars (Benitos' Bar & Grill) and shops a couple blocks away. Overall, it is in a safe area and the staff are helpful.

I stayed at Acacia Lodge with friends for a week. The service is way below local standards in Accra.... My main focus in this review is that my money was stolen from a locked cabinet inside my locked room and NOTHING was done about it. They offered no compensation or even to do anything about it!! I advise you to think twice before staying at Acacia Lodge!

My husband and I stayed here for two nights and were very impressed with the hotel room especially the balcony which had great views over Accra and was great to have breakfast. The owner Elizabeth went out of her way to assist us when we had some issues with immigration. For this we thank her very much. I definately recommend the hotel.

Always difficult to find good addresses when you come for the first time to a country ...I have booked this fine guest lodge through the net, and was pleasently surprised by the quick and professional respond to my questions.
Airport service included (thanks Albert), and allthough a bit far from Accra centre (not in distance, but due to traffic jams) is was an excellent departure point for day trips in busy Accra : the lodge is situated in residential area and offers a quite environment.
The rooms are very comfortable, and the staff is very friendly ..good price / quality relation...
