I chose to spend two nights at this hotel with my husband because we were looking for an inexpensive hotel, but a classy one which is in this area. We probably would not have chosen to spend the night here if we had read the previous review, but at the end, we have no regrets. The rooms are very neat, my husband and I shared a pizza which was the best we have eaten in Accra. The best of our time there apart from our dinners was our sleep. Surprisingly, even though the hotel is located in an area where residents appear to be a little below the average Ghanaian class, the hotel is very quiet and the atmosphere serene.
We paid in US Dollars since we already knew that it is always better to pay in the currency in which you are charged in Ghana. My husband and I being being business folks, we also make our exchange rates slightly higher than the bank rate because the Ghanaian Cedi could drop by morning before you get to the bank. So we always carry some forex when we travel out of town. The hotel staff appear to be very courteous and are smart. It also appears some polishing up is still going on which the manager who also met us at the restaurant on our first night confirmed. The hotel, however has no swimming pool or any recreational facility, but has nice conference facilities and high speed internet free. It is typically a good hotel for a business traveller.
