“good budget place in Accra”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 March 2012

At 70 cedi for a large room with your own bathroom and shower, the Ampax must be one of the best places to stay in Central Accra if you're on a budget. There were also smaller rooms available at 60 cedi.

Our room was large, as was the bed. There was airconditioning, but it was stuck on 24° and the staff politely asked me not to try and change it, as this could result in a total breakdown. So the room was cooler than outside, but not really cool. The shower worked fine, but flushing the toilet was a bit problematic.

There was only one towel and no bed sheet, but the staff brought some when we asked for them. Cleanliness could have been better, but a lot worse too. Don't expect the staff to be very enthusiastic, but they do what you ask for.

The Ampax Hotel is well located in Asylum Down, a rather quiet neighbourhood of Accra. From the large balcony you can watch the activity on the street. It's only a short taxi ride away from the main sights and transportation hubs (if traffic is fluid).

In short: if you have a lot of money to spend, there are probably more luxurious places around. But if you're travelling on a budget, the Ampax offers value for your money and we would definately recommend it.

Watch out, there's another Ampax Hotel in the suburb of Pokuase (which is a lot further away from the city center). The right website for the Ampax in Asylum Down reviewed here is: www.ampaxhotelaccra.com.
