Perhaps my judgement is impaired by my previous night's stay in the Royal Richester but I thought the Movenpick was truly excellent and it;s my preferred choice for Accra from now on.
Everything you;d expect plus a few welcome embellishments. I stayed in an Exec room with lounge access which was worth every penny and included nice touches such as two shirts ironed for free on arrival, complimentary use of the board room for up to 8 people up to 3 hours - very helpful. Late check out at 5pm at no extra cost - I rest my case.
Food was good, tasty burgers at the poolside served by waiters on roller skates. Massive breakfast buffet. Free snack and evening canapes in the exec lounge, served with free booze of course - the lobster cigars were especially nice!
In fact I'd rate the exec lounge on a par with that of the Hilton Canary Wharf in London, which was my previous favorite! The Movenpick benefits from a large balcony on which to smoke!
I found the wifi to be rapid and reliable as was the airport shuttle, we'll maybe not so rapid during rush hour (the shuttle that is!)
Top marks - top class hotel.
