This was my first time to Accra, Ghana so I decided to stay at a no-frills hotel within the vicinity of my client's premises. Since I have a couple of friends in Accra, they recommended Hotel Mariset which was in the same area but my colleague and I begrudingly accepted to put at Deon Hotel since the hotel pickup did not know the general direction of Hotel Mariset. We were warmly received by the ever-smiling and ultra-helpful Amelia. The check-in was swift and uneventful, after haggling over the rack rate on offer. The breakfast was filing though the breakfast area was small and could only accomodate a few people at a time.
The only problem I had with the hotel is that they had an automatic pump which would go off a couple of times in the middle of the night. This was sorted out after I complained the following morning amidst serious eye bags! Alongside that, my colleague and I learnt the hard way not to pay in foreign currency as the exchange rate on offer never seems to favour the guest (the hotel is in business after all! What were we thinking?). So, always pay in local currency as a rule of thumb.
