Friendly and very helpful staff who went out of their way to get us the right room set up (3 kids). Nice quiet area, with however little to no restaurants, but several 'bars' and small shops. Hotel restaurant had very limited items available and no other guests, so we ended up having dinner at the Pink Hostel (5' walk). Rooms... More

This at first would appear to be a B&B but is a small cosy hotel with a small self sufficient restaurant. Located in the Asylum Down neighborhood in Accra - this is a 10 min taxi drive from Osu, 20/25 min drive from Airport and a 3 minute drive from National Musueam. The rooms are clean, spacious and the wi-fi... More

The Gye Nyame (pronounced "gee nee-a-me") is a sweet, friendly, comfortable hotel. The staff are all welcoming and helpful, and the Asylum Down location provides easy access to different parts of Accra. The quiet residential neighborhood has sidewalks and streetlights--a nice break from the crowding and traffic in some parts of the city. Although when we arrived we initially thought... More

My sister and I stayed at the Gye Nyame Hotel for 9 days, in which they gave us a discount because of our long stay. They were a very pleasant staff. One gentleman at the desk staff was very personable and was very devoted in making sure everything was going smoothly (not in an annoying way either) He informed me... More

Located in the Asylum Down area of Accra, the Gye Nyame Hotel is very well located. In a quiet residential area, but nevertheless close to everything. The rooms have seen better days. Price/quality wise there must be better places (such as the Ampax Hotel a few blocks away, see my review of that hotel). But the rooms are specious, rather... More

Great price, more than the basic comforts, and very reliable. Air conditioning, super comfortable bed, hot water, desk and stool, TV and fridge. Nothing broken. I will definitely return here. Not fancy, but excellent bang for your buck, and great staff.

MY Overnight stay was pleasant. After the chaos at the airport I was PLEASANTLY SURPRISED at the professionalism of the staff from the receptionists to the room attendants.

“A word of advice - do not leave valuables/cash in the room or deposit them with the reception. I have had one bad incident of $300 gone missing but I still came back to this place as I took that incident as a learning experience.”
