Nice hotel with friendly staff but Internet never worked and the technician was making it seem as if I was the cost. The place will be nice for a weekend getaway where noone can find u wanna relax but not business because the wifi will never work. I left very early the next day so can't comment on food and...

I was picked up at the Airport and had a great conversation with the driver. At check in i was given fresh juice as i signed filled my forms. The room was spacious with a kitchenette, although there wasn't much of a view, it was nice. Everything was pretty clean, although age showed a bit in some places. The front... More

This hotel is in a relatively new residential area of Accra, with the advantage of being fairly close to the airport and offering airport pickups. Premises are ok but not well maintained in detail. Food very average. Staff generally friendly but not always able to solve simple issues. Not an impossible venue, but not good value for money by international... More

Not so royal and certainly not worth the price. After a full day of travelling, I arrived at this hotel around 10pm ready to get some rest I am paying USD 250+ a night including taxes so one would expect a minimum level of service and facility to match the price.  Issue no 1: they couldn't find my booking (...

courteous staff....wonderful restaurant. stayed at the hotel for five nights days back. the Internet was intermediate initially but the IT guys helped resolved it by installing a booster near my room. the Friday live band was impressive and the customer service is great

I stayed here for four days on business. The reception was great and airport pick up really smooth. Staff were amazingly helpful and cooperative. I lobe their food and could afford three meals per day. Rooms are spacious and generally I was happy. However disappointing was the extremely poor internet connection. I could barely download documents. In addition, the swimming... More

Visited 6 years ago when almost new. Now a shabby excuse for a hotel. Needs serious makeover. Room ok. Room safe broken. Mold and black mildew in shower. Shower drain backs up over your feet while showering. Buffet breakfast adequate choice. Hot food cold. Had to ask for stuff that should be automatically on display-butter, juice. Nice pool but dirty.... More

A good welcome by the staff. I had my 6 yr old son with me. The rooms we as clean as clean. Everything was at the right place. The staff (from the cleaner to the managers) were very friendly. I had some goat soup for dinner and it was delicious. The price, $180 for a night was worth it.

Stayed here on business. Hotel is clean and relatively modern. Outside has a pool area that is nice during winter. Summer it gets too humid and hot to sit outside. The rooms are clean with aircon. Television in my room only had French channels. The wifi is terribly slow and constantly asks for the password to be re-entered on your... More
