“Pleasant surprise!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2013

I arrived in Accra fearing that I would not get a reasonably priced hotel near the airport without prior booking. The man at the kiosk where hotels are booked within the arrivals area recommended the hotel. The very reasonable fee for a single room included a shuttle service and was less than that displayed in the hotel lobby. The hotel is very close to the airport, yet I heard no planes and I was given a value for money room which had clean linen, air conditioning which works and room service even though I arrived quite late. The check in staff at the front desk were well turned out and very pleasant. There is a small bar near the entrance and the hotel is obviously aware of the need to provide good service since the Trip Advisor logo was prominently displaced as one enters the hotel! The porters lugged my heavy suitcase up two flights of stair at ease. Breakfast was not very exciting but freshly made. Certainly a place I would stay at again in transit.

Room Tip: The back of the hotel e.g. room 120 was extremely quiet

I really enjoyed this hotel. I was looking for something with air conditioning, a free shuttle to the airport and food. The extra bonus was the wireless internet service. Hooray!! The staff was very friendly and helpful. I loved the air conditioned room. As my plane did not leave until 10 PM I paid a small fee to be able to check out at 7. Then the free shuttle took me directly to the airport. The driver stayed with me while my companion went to get a cart for the luggage. As a woman traveling alone I thought that was really good of him. I enjoyed the free breakfast buffet. and ate the dinner buffet as well.

Spent one night here before going to another place in Ghana. The front desk was very friendly, helpful and could exchange money. Room was large and clean and safe. The hotel restaurant was adequate for a short stay. Easy to go to the Accra Mall from here. Also very close to the airport.

The hotelrooms are excellent at a reasonable price - compared to Holiday Inn or Golden Tulip etc. Fully air conditioned. Good Room-service available. Free internet access. Very friendly and co-operative staff. Nice swimming pool with adjacent bar. Free pick-up from and return to airport. Private car with chauffeur available at reasonable cost per hour.
Restaurant is simple but will do for a short stay. When in Accra I am sure going to stay there.

I have been here imobilised for two weeks now, The same breakfast everyday if your lucky enough to get it, bread beens some sort of egg, and soggy sausage. lunch and dinner was a buffet, rice hard chicken, fish heads and tails, and on the very odd occasion CHIPS. Oh you get a selection of sause's to soften the blow as well. the rooms are ok for a day or two, but any longer dont depend on the pay channels for entertainment. the bar is ok but staff are very untrained but friendly and need to sew the holes in there shirts. All in all the hotel should should be regarded as a back packers budget accomodation facility.

We spent one night in this establishment, and were not impressed at all. We had no illusions of it being a luxury hotel before we checked in, because we'd done our research and knew that it wasn't. However, we would not stay there again, nor would we recommend it to friends. The facilities are clean but the service is poor. With the exception of the receptionist, who was warm and welcoming, other hotel staff are not professionally trained, especially in the hotel restaurant. The internal finishing of the building is also shoddy, reflecting poor quality construction. There are better hotels in relative proximity to the airport.

We stayed here for just 1 night before taking off. I don't think we made a wrong choice at all.
In term of location , it is close to the airport and interestingly there are some trees and plants around the hotel which then make the place more charming. To be honest, It's not a fancy hotel, but was very comfortable and clean.
Pls note that : the hotel provides the facilities to do currency exchange over the counter.
