I reviewed this hotel previously, and have since stayed there a few more times - plus some other hotels in Accra. I'm happy with my first review - which marked the hotel well. I noticed a good few remarks regarding costs and facilities from other reviewers.
Costs - I agree the costs are too high. Unfortunately however, the costs are too high all over Accra (and many African countries). It's hard to understand how it works - but getting a room less than $160/$200 is tough. I don't see this as a Mahogany issue however. I booked in there originally to avoid the extortionate charges in the Holiday Inn - which where $300 - $400 for a soul less mediocre hotel room.
Amenities - I agree also there is little in the way of restaurants and bars close by. I have visited Captain Hooks a few times - which is a 10 minute walk. That is a very expensive spot however. I tend to grab a cab into town to eat - which is much more interesting than staying in the hotel. It costs me about 5 Cedi (€3).
For me - the winner here is the people. They are really nice. It's very close to the Airport. No probs catching cabs. Its relatively competitive (Note - not cheap!). The rooms are clean. The breakfast is plentiful and tasty.
Well worth your consideration.
