My first visit to Ghana and the location of the hotel was a genuine plus being so close to the airport. I later discovered that this hotel is the choice of most airlines to put their cabin crew up at, so if no one gets up to dance on live music evenings, you now know why !
The price is way over the top for what the hotel is and this is the only experience I have ever had where you have to pay in stages. On arrival we paid for three days then had a note shoved under the door saying that our "credit had been exceeded and please contact the main desk" where we had to pay for another three days and then on departure we paid for the final two. Quite what this was all about I don't know. The biggest mess occurred when we got back to London and found out that we had been charged three times for the last payment ( a staff error by putting the credit card through three times) it took a lot of hassle to get this refunded.
My main complaints were the overpricing and the general haphazardness, but also there were obviously "ladies of the night" operating on the premises ( a lot of expat skilled workers stay here) and some of the staff told us they lived on tips alone which later turned out to be false.
In a nutshell, it's not a bad place to stay if you can ignore the shortcomings, but I wouldn't choose to go back.
