It's certainly not the worst hotel in Africa, but I paid US$130 a night and its not worth that, but then all prices in Accra are crazy at the moment. So the positives; the swimming pool was very clean and large. The restaurant has a great mix of local and European food - all to a high standard. The rooms are large with a balcony and the bed was ok - despite all the other reviews. I'll explain why below. There are some decent bars and restaurants nearby and the hotel staff were friendly and helpful.
The negatives; despite asking 3 times, I didn't get a remote for the TV. The wifi....... it didn't work and I really had to complain a lot - the IT manager didn't seem to hot on how to fix it. I was given a cable but even then it didn't work. Anyway it did get fixed the next day and it was fine, but it's weak and takes a lot of hassle to get it. I also had to ask for some soap in my bathroom.
And the bed? Well the mattress is like steel, but on top of mine was a soft cover that meant the bed was really nice. I guess the other beds just don't have the cover, but I'm sure you can get one...
Don't change money there - the rates are rubbish - walk down the road.
Overall it was ok, but expensive. I think some of these other reviews on this hotel are harsh.
