Airport View Hotel
Ranked #15 of 90 Hotels in Accra
Reviewed 21 August 2014

I have stayed at this modest hotel a couple of times while on transit via Accra. This hotel is very close to the airport and thus is ideal for transit travellers. The place is small but homely. The rooms are neat and nice. Wifi is a blessing. There are no lifts here and so be prepared to lug up your own luggage or seek the help of a porter. The restaurant is small and the variety of food is limited. The breakfast buffet spread was adequate. If you're from India, you could request the chef for some Indian dishes, the recipes of which he picked up from Indian guests. The hotel is in an upmarket location where most embassies and diplomat residences are located. Take time to visit the Duty Free outlet close by. The hotel is quite overpriced at USD 100 - which could be a function of demand - supply dynamics.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the ground floor so that you needn't carry up your luggage.(No elevators here)

My Rotaract Club (Rotaract Club of Accra Ring-Road Cemtral) had a meeting at Airport View last Wednesday and to my amazement quite contrary to what you will find in most contemporary hotels, the attention to detail and enchanting aroma I noticed in their visitors' bathroom deserves some thumbs-up. The reception Staff are friendly as well for the couple of times I have been there for meetings.

Luckily I was only using the Airport View Hotel as a day room before my late night flight out of Accra airport. However, I really don't think they should be charging for the room I had. The hotel is undergoing renovation/expansion and my room was directly above the work site. When I eventually was able to take a shower (no water for the first hour due to problem with pump), the noise and vibrations were so bad I had images of me crashing down to the floor below. There was no way to relax or even watch television with all the noise. I escaped to a different wing of the hotel where the noise was more muted and there were some public lounges but eventually had the flee from there also due to noise from people using the lounges and adjacent hallways to make cell phone calls.

Last november Me and my friends booked some day use rooms at this Hotel.
We arrive at 4 pm and immediately we realised that the hotel was under restoration and we were not advised. The Reception was located in a very small room with some place to sit. The bar was very small with few things to drink. We waited 15 minutes for two coffees. There were other people sitting there complaining because there was not enough light to read.
After 20 minutes that the staff didn't tell us nothing about the rooms we booked, we asked to speak with a front desk manager, who arrived after 5 minutes telling us that the Hotel could not give us the rooms because the people who left the rooms returned back to the Hotel because they lost their flight and so they pretend back their rooms.
After 15 minutes of discussion the hotel manager decieded to reprotect us with onother Hotel, worst than the Airport view Hotel. The people who was in charge to take us there made a mistake and took us to onother hotel loosing onother 30 minutes. At the end we arrive at the an hotel who cost less than the other .
This was the experience. Very bad , so avoid this Hotel. There is a wonderful new Holiday Inn next to the airport much much better.

I was upgraded to a double room which would have been more spacious with just a bed in it. Clean& spacious bathroom, hot water flowed well. Buffer breakfast was good with delicious fruit juice but not so much of variety. Main problem i had was the noise of cars passing by in the night, funnily enough i couldnt hear the sound of airplanes in spite of its proximity to the airport. Airport shuttle was very efficient in pick up & drop off.

If you need to stay close to the airport this is great. I've been staying here for years- it's a bit overpriced, but the rooms are clean and the staff is amazing. The rooftop bar is a good place to decompress if you're arriving after a long flight.

Paid about $120 for an average room; friendly staff; clean bathroom and linens although pillows were a bit hard; door kept getting stuck; had lovely Grouper fish - huge portions; prompt airport pick up and drop off; less than 10 minutes from the airport (which as the name suggests you can view from the room...)
