“Will do for the short term”
Reviewed 18 June 2012 via mobile

Spent one night here before going to another place in Ghana. The front desk was very friendly, helpful and could exchange money. Room was large and clean and safe. The hotel restaurant was adequate for a short stay. Easy to go to the Accra Mall from here. Also very close to the airport.

Stayed May 2012, travelled solo

The hotelrooms are excellent at a reasonable price - compared to Holiday Inn or Golden Tulip etc. Fully air conditioned. Good Room-service available. Free internet access. Very friendly and co-operative staff. Nice swimming pool with adjacent bar. Free pick-up from and return to airport. Private car with chauffeur available at reasonable cost per hour.
Restaurant is simple but will do for a short stay. When in Accra I am sure going to stay there.

I have been here imobilised for two weeks now, The same breakfast everyday if your lucky enough to get it, bread beens some sort of egg, and soggy sausage. lunch and dinner was a buffet, rice hard chicken, fish heads and tails, and on the very odd occasion CHIPS. Oh you get a selection of sause's to soften the blow as well. the rooms are ok for a day or two, but any longer dont depend on the pay channels for entertainment. the bar is ok but staff are very untrained but friendly and need to sew the holes in there shirts. All in all the hotel should should be regarded as a back packers budget accomodation facility.

We spent one night in this establishment, and were not impressed at all. We had no illusions of it being a luxury hotel before we checked in, because we'd done our research and knew that it wasn't. However, we would not stay there again, nor would we recommend it to friends. The facilities are clean but the service is poor. With the exception of the receptionist, who was warm and welcoming, other hotel staff are not professionally trained, especially in the hotel restaurant. The internal finishing of the building is also shoddy, reflecting poor quality construction. There are better hotels in relative proximity to the airport.

We stayed here for just 1 night before taking off. I don't think we made a wrong choice at all.
In term of location , it is close to the airport and interestingly there are some trees and plants around the hotel which then make the place more charming. To be honest, It's not a fancy hotel, but was very comfortable and clean.
Pls note that : the hotel provides the facilities to do currency exchange over the counter.

Stayed here four nights on business (newspaper reporter). As a hotel, this is probably good value as hotels are really expensive in Accra.

BUT the facilities for getting work done is so-so. The wireless coverage is good (rooms, restaurant, lobby etc), but the actual internet signal were down more than it was working.

The neighbourhood is generally quiet, except for some traffic. Didn't bother me. No noise from airport.
You need to drive to everything.
Breakfast was not too good (fried eggs'n'onions, beans, poor sausages, bad white toast, butter, jam, terrible coffee and good juice) but absolutely on the same level as most restaurants we visited.

We ate several lunches and dinners here, and they were actually pretty good. Large portions, tasty, but nothing special.

Pool was surprisingly nice, clean and large!

Compared to other options, if you are on a budget, this should be good. That's why I recommend it.

Airport View Hotel meets all U.S. standards of cleanliness, power, water pressure, hot water, air conditioning, security & hospitable staff. I will never pay the ridiculously high prices at the other hotels when this hotel meets the standard for world travelers who enjoy privacy and quiet. It is centrally located and is accessible to a great runner's route on the main strip for 5 miles in each direction. The only adjustment that I've had to make was ordering food from the restaurant 30-45 minutes in advance. There is a very limited kitchen staff (Cooks), but the food is made to order and always fresh. FYI: Please make sure that you order a fresh fruit plate for breakfast. Ghana has the sweetest white pineapples around and the hotel offers a great fruit plate.
