I had always wanted to go to Ghana and found that looking for hotels was a very long process...i searched and found the popular hotels were too expensive and was not the 'african experience' i required. Then i saw the Afia Hotel website and new straight away that was the one to choose.
My husband and i stayed there for 10 days. When we arrived it was very, very humid. We had booked a standard room, it was clean had a tv (with some satellite channels too), air conditioning, fan, fridge - everything we would need. The view from our window was beautiful, we could see the sea, locals exercising along the beach, sunrise - perfect.
The staff couldnt be friendlier! They were very professional, very polite and honest! I have been to other parts of Africa and must say that the locals are very humble, friendly people. The location of the hotel is right near the centre of everything in Accra. When u reach the main road from the hotel 8 minute walk to city centre (to the left), and to the right to Little Oxford (named after Oxford Street in London). We took a can because of heat!
Also if you walk from the hotel to the main road turn left as going into town you see a market full of local art, instruments, etc, whereby you can use your bartering skills.
Food at the hotel was lovely, a good variety and tried almost everything on the menu. Food was reasonably priced. I plan to return to Ghana and would most definitely stay there again. The main thing i loved about this hotel was the location, it was peaceful, clean and honestly priced.
