If you are willing to put up with an atmosphere of unfinished renovation and a few "bizarre situations", this hotel might be worth it. The staff is extremely nice and the hotel is well located in the Osu central part of Accra. You can walk to the banks, get a cab easily to go to the craft markets and other places. But prepare yourself for a rather rough stay: no regular coffee in the morning, you will get the Nescafe type. It is not possible to pay with credit card while checking out, because the "machine has a problem". Unbelievable but true. The breakfeast is a poorly toasted bread, plenty of fresh fruits, Nescafe coffee, some tasteless egg mixture, no juice. If you want to have diner or lunch, the food is acceptable and not at all expensive. The Internet signal goes off and on constantly. In conclusion, if you don't intend to spend too much time in the hotel you can go there because it is much cheaper than the others in Accra.
