Central hotel has 2 branches km away one to each other. My contact in Ghana recommended one in Ridge area - close to British High Commission, as good value for money (120$/night). Only good point of this hotel is location that is close to Oxford street, close to main Government buildings which is really advantage because heavy traffic could be issue in Accra. Staff seems completely disinterested for the smallest guests complains and request - like provide bottle of water (fridge in the room empty)!? Breakfast is poor - egg albumen, filter coffee and fruit only, but not in perfect eating condition. The furniture look as is collected form 5 different yard sales. But the biggest remark is unacceptable level of cleanliness in the room! I'm sure that my linens was not change before my arrival, room smell bad and look very dirty. Bathroom curtains broken, no hair dryer, no shampoos and only one towel again smell bad. A/C so loud that does not allow you sleeping. I got the room in older part of the hotel, and can not judge about newer one - but considering behavior of the staff I don't believe can be much better. Because I arrived late and couldn't find the option immediately after check inn I left this place next morning and move to Holiday Inn, and was so happy to spend additional 150$/night! If you are used on European standards of hotels, and you expect clean and well maintained place - THIS IS NOT PLACE FOR YOU, STAY AWAY!
