We stayed just two nights here but wished we had booked a few more. The Rising Phoenix is in Ushertown, not far from James Town, in Accra. The hotel is right on the cliffs edge and the morning views are great. The owner is very helpful and friendly as was Cesar who works at the hotel as a guide showing guests the local area. It's very reasonable and as such the rooms are basic, but they are clean which is all we were looking for. Food is vegan and very good and influenced by the owner's time spent in india, but all the Ghanaian food is available too. There's quite a hippy vibe here and lots of people come into the restaurant/bar area at night to relax and drink beer. The area could appear a bit unsafe at first appearances, but is absolutely fine and nothing to worry about. Good idea to arrive in daylight if poss so you can find it easily but if not just arrange for the staff to collect you. Great, cheap and relaxing place to stay in Accra - walking distance from most things you'll want to see.
