I have stayed here before, and prefer its location to either of the Golden Tulip and the Labadi Beach.
The rooms are well appointed, with WiFi (would be better to have one log in for the stay rather than having to create new ones every 24 hours) and are clean.
This time stayed on the seventh floor over looking the pool, the only issue was the air conditioning unit seemed very loud.
Check-in was difficult, despite being collected by their shuttle from the airport the room was not ready and this seemed to throw the staff, as was the request to amend the booking (cancelling two nights as I was travelling out of the city) this request took two staff 25 minutes to resolve.
The restaurant and bar are not bad, service a bit hit and miss, but don't ask to have a tab in the bar, if you are sharing a table (I was with a client and we were splitting the bill for the night) as this can't be done they just make it one bill and no amount of explanation will change this.
A good stay, but standards have slipped from its excellent rating on opening but it is still probably best hotel in Accra.
