I have stayed here a few time over recent months and there is nothing wrong with this hotel other than the price (although this is comparable to other 'upper end' hotels) but there is nothing exceptional about it. The rooms are good, the food is okay, the staff are on the whole helpful, and the airport shuttle is also reliable. I wouldn't particularly want to stay here for prolonged periods however it is more than adequate for short stop overs.

Stayed: May 2013, traveled on business

The hotel is situated in a very convenient location for both the airport and many of the commercial offices in the city. Hence this was my preferred choice for business when compared to the "airport hotels". The ambiance is airy and spacious in the lobby although there is a pervasive "brown" colour which makes the hotel feel very dated and is oppressive.

The rooms are very basic and far too tatty for the high price-tag with overly stringent limitations on bottled water, towels, tea and coffee amenities and a complete lack of milk cartons (not unusual since the English tea-habits are unique!). The pillows were of poor quality and the beds very narrow indeed.

There is a nice outdoor seating area and a beautiful pool which an essential escape from the unwelcome continuation of the "brown" theme from the lobby throughout the entirety of the hotel's inside space.

Breakfast buffet and bar food were all fine, good variety and well prepared. Staff are welcoming, beautifully turned-out and maintained professionalism, great service and flexibility throughout my stay. Gladys in the bar downstairs was a particular high spot with her friendly, welcoming smile and service. It is the staff that really make this hotel!

Dear Madam,

Thank you for sharing your experience at our hotel. We appreciate your positive comments and assure you action was taken on the areas of concern.

The colour theme throughout the hotel was earth colours in line with the Corporate design philosophy.

Accommodation in Accra is not cheap with the room rate of approx $US260/night at the Golden Tulip for a double room.

On the upside, the rooms are clean, comfortable with all your basic amenities provided for including free wi-fi. The staff were friendly and attentive to ones needs. There are two well maintained hard court tennis courts, a (shallow) swimming pool that is surrounded by the terrace restaurant, and a piano lounge - inner restaurant area. The lunch/dinner food is good value for what it is compared to other hotels and restaurants in Accra too, although the breakfast needs a slight revamp. The conference room is a bit narrow with poles in the way, but it can comfortably fit in up to 60 people. The free airport shuttle is an excellent service especially as the hotel is also very close to the airport.

On the downside - the room doors are quite thin and you can easily hear people walking by, talking, cleaning and also hear other doors closing. So perhaps if you are a heavy sleeper this won't pose a problem during the night/early morning. The wi-fi can be a bit slow at times especially in the evenings. Scratches on the walls of the hotel room, and the slightly dated brown furnishings were just cosmetic nuances.

Had I not been woken up several times during my stay, I would say it was a very good hotel that suited my needs very well.

Room Tip: Quieter rooms are those that face away from the swimming pool as sometimes there are bands playing on the terrace.

The casino is a small, but busy establishment, there are no frills. Here, when a player plays with a certain nominal amount, they get their drinks and food for free (on the house). The staff are numerous, and players can play from slot machines to blackjack. There is a nice mix of different cultures and a game for everyone. The service is prompt and friendly. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for an evening in a casino.

Golden Tulip is THE place to stay when you visit Accra, whether it would be for business or for vacation - kind staff, clean rooms and a wide variety of facilities.
A very romantic ambiance at night due to the lighting up of the pool and live music.
Don't forget to visit the inhouse Beauty Salon for a massage as well.
