“Great place, great staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

I spent a week in this hotel. I loved the location for its peaceful/serene atmosphere. The room was very comfortable, and was cleaned daily. The equipment all worked. The one time power was interrupted the generator was put into action within minutes. So I was able to relax in the air conditioned comfort. Don't remember seeing or hearing any Mosquitos, which was great even though I had a ground floor room. The staff were very helpful, and very accommodating with regard to coming to breakfast late, or helping to get me my favorite dishes at dinner. The red snapper and tilapia dishes were the best, especially with the side dish of kelewele (fried plantain).
Both Julie and Charles, the couple that owns the place, were extremely pleasant and took an interest to engage, despite their busy schedule. I would not hesitate to stay there again on my next trip to Accra should I need to camp in a hotel. Lovely, peaceful and clean facilities.

We had traveled to Ghana for the trade fair and stayed at Charleston for 15 days. We are glad we made the right choice. Big spacious rooms, a beautiful swimming pool and great food at the restaurant. We tried a lot of different things on the menu and were not disappointed even once by the Chef, everything was so good.

The location of the hotel is perfect for you to unwind after a long tiring day. You can chill by the pool or just hang out in your room or one the many balconies. The hotel has an arrangement with the Tesano Sports Club which is right next to the hotel, where the guests can use the facilities of the Club at no extra cost.

The owners, Charles & Juliana take special personal care and are always ready to help.

I am definitely going to stay here on my next visit to Ghana.

This quiet peaceful place is the best kept secret in Accra. Run by owners Charles and Julie ,semi retired Ghanaian s from Texas (where folk are very friendly too). The area and surroundings are traffic free and very quiet. The hotel was built and designed by Charles with material meticulously chosen and imported from the USA.
The staff are extremely friendly and helpful and nothing is too much trouble. Charles and Julie are on hand all day to tend to every need. The hotel is cleaned all day, every day and is spotless.
Security is great.
There is a lovely sports club (Tesano Sports Club) next door with a gym ,squash courts , badminton court ,4 tennis courts and a great pool for training laps and a very good restaurant that is open from 8 am till 10 pm daily and very well run and clean. lovely relaxing lawned pool area .
Use of facilities for hotel guests is free, the club is otherwise for members only .
The menu is however a little limited but on request a day in advance anything will be acquired and prepared . My second extended stay here.

Charleston is a jewel of a property owned and operated by the gracious Julie and Charles. The rooms are large, the staff is friendly and the food is cooked to order and delicious. (Try the tilapia and banko. Great!) The staff was extremely attentive and the owners make you feel like a guest in their home, not a patron of a faceless hotel chain. Very hospitable. Located in the quiet Tesano area, the hotel encourages you to enjoy a drink by the pool or in Julie's Bar or work out at the sports club next door. Relaxation was the theme for me and my husband but I saw quite a few business travelers during my stay as well. I will return here every time I visit Accra.

Room Tip: The penthouse has a great sitting room and view of the city.

A very nice hotel I found in Accra Charleston Hotel . The hotel has really nice, big and precious rooms with very nice beds and amenities . Hotel's restaurant and bar serves amazing and different cuisine of food and alcoholic and nonalcoholic drinks. They serve authentic Ghanian dishes and continental food. Although they can serve the food of your choice if you inform the chef. Chef in kitchen is really very good. Most important this Hotel is located just next to Tesano sport club (tennis, squash, badminton, gym).

Hotel's taxi service is also very fast and whenever you need taxi for you they can provide.
All staffs are very friendly, soft spoken and ready to serve you. Hotel also have 24*7 security, electricity back up, and wi fi internet facility.

Most important the place is very cool, no traffic, no violence, no noise pollution.

If you plan to visit Accra or Ghana , I think this is the best hotel for you and your family. You want to visit again again and again after your first visit.


I recommend the hotel to everybody who stays in Accra or want to visit Accra.

Room Tip: Go for executive rooms for you or if you are with family you should go for pent house or twin room.

Charleston is a nice, small and well kept & managed hotel in a quiet, but still easy to reach, area of Accra. The prices are reasonable and they give you a good feelng of being welcome. It is located adjacent to a sportsclub with facilities that are unmatched in Accra, so you can work, relax and exercise in the same location. All in all a place to be recommended !

The owners, Julie and Charles, are the most hospitable and kind hosts. They went to great lengths to accommodate our ever need and made any arrangements we needed for our outings. The hotel itself was immaculately clean and the rooms were spacious. The bathrooms were always clean and the showers always had hot water and great water pressure. Whenever we returned to the hotel we were greeted by well-working, refreshing air conditioning. Julie and the chef provided wonderful, Ghanian meals and would modify any of our food requests. In addition to all of this, right outside, there is a lovely, relaxing, fresh pool perfect for escaping the heat. But nothing beats a cold Star beer or Crush soda while you sit outside.

Room Tip: Ask for a suite.
