“Perfect tranquil African hotel in Accra”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

The Mahogany Lodge, owned by a local Ghanian couple, is not hip, not pretentious, and does not pretend to be anything more than what it is. But what it is, is exactly what you need in Accra:
A quiet refuge in the tranquil Cantonments area with good qualty at a reasonable (for Africa) price. The smiles from Faustina at the front desk propagate outwards to the porter, to the maid, and so on. The rooms are not particularly stylish, but are very clean, the bathrooms are sparkling , the linen is comfortable, and the aircon discreet. The small pool is ideal for a quick cooling off. Unlike La Villa (where I stayed previously) where sunglass clad hipsters lounge poolside while trance music plays too loudly, and where the veneer is wearing off the too chic furnishings, the Mahogany lodge is a friendly, quiet, honest African hotel in Accra ... and about USD 35 cheaper per night than La Villa ... and with a free airport shuttle to boot. This is a hotel that I will come back to.

We stayed for 2 nights in November. We wanted a hotel in Accra which was small, quiet with good meals and not too far a drive from the airport. We couldn’t have chosen better.. The staff were extremely good and it was one of the top 2 places in terms of food – menus, decor, and hygiene- during our 14 day stay. The Hotel and its rooms were small but stylish and comfortable and the rooms were situated, cloister - like, round a small swimming pool.

Its remarkable how cool the Mahogany lodge is.Small and very personal.I was an in house guest and the complementary breakfast tops it all.The staff are very friendly,Babara and Faustina are just what you need to get a direction,the true taxi fare and just about anything you want.Always smiling and very professional.I had a great time staying at the Mahogany.Sometimes the room service is slow but other services make you forget about that.Hope you keep up the good work.The manager is a superb lady very polite.I hope to come stay there again sometime soon.

Certainly nice clean rooms but not cheap! Internet was fine and better by many standards. Ate breakfast at the restaurant, which is kind of average and service could be slow if a bunch of folks show-up at the same time for meals. The hotel is in a nice quiet neighborhood away from Accra's worsening traffic and hustle and bustle.....which aslo means you really need to figure out transport to and from the hotel, which is not a big deal.

Room Tip: choose the ones on the top floor overlooking the pools indoor and avoid the ones facing the roads ou...

Mahogany Lodge is a small, 14-room hotel near the airport but also close to many embassies and businesses. The lodge has mainly ground floor rooms, with a few rooms upstairs on the second floor. A center area has a nice swimming pool and a covered sitting area for drinks and snacks. The lodge is a friendly, almost intimate place, with clean rooms and a helpful staff. Wi-fi connection is excellent. You can relax here and feel at home. I recommend it highly.

A very friendly and secure hotel in Accra where the staff always 'go the extra mile' to ensure your stay is pleasant.
The wireless broadband speed is exceptional for this part of the world.
The restaurant is adequate if not exceptional but the hotel is located close to other restaurants.

I have stayed now four times at the Mahogany Lodge. The rooms are always very clean, the internet-connection is included in the room-rate and works very decently. The staff is/was always very friendly. Last time Faustina went to great lengths to organize a taxi for me and to explain very much in detail to the driver where he has to take me to. She even negotiated a better price for the ride on my behalf.
The food served is always of good quality and they offer a large breakfast. I would definitely say that it is a good location for business-travellers and the lodge does not have the very expensive rates of the Holiday Inn in Accra. WIll visit again.
