Mariam Hotel
Ranked #9 of 36 Tamale B&B and Inns
Reviewed 14 June 2013

We stayed at this hotel in June of 2013 for the first time, though I have stayed in Tamale a number of times in other hotels. When we checked out, the lady I was traveling with was charged in US dollars rather than Ghanaian cedis, which is totally dishonest and unacceptable. I did not realize what had happened until we were on the road and it was too late to correct the situation. Also, be sure to check that the toilet flushes, the door locks work and the AC/fan are in working order. If you are paying 150 cedis for a double room, it is a pricier option but better accommodation than the Catholic Guest House or TICCS (but they are much cheaper). If you are paying US$ 150 per night, you are getting ripped off big time, as we were. However, I do want to make a point of saying the food preparation in their restaurant was really good, and I would certainly go back for the food, though likely not to stay.

Room Tip: No pool or fitness centre. It is north of town centre, just west of the Bolga highway so relatively...

The hotel have large and well equipped rooms. We were only here for one night and it felt a bit on the expensive side. But as mentioned in other reviews it is one of the best hotels in Tamale. Clean rooms.

The rooms are not very spacious but neat and clean. Hot water is available as each room has individual geyser. Room service is also good . Reception staff is very helpful . Wifi works best in this hotel in tamale. Restaurant is very famous and the food is good . You can get both veg and non veg food here . Very hygienic . I think executive rooms are ok . The cost is bit too high as compared to tamale

I stayed here during the election period. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful and the rooms were large and comfortable. The restaurant is popular and the food portions are large with the Iron Plate the top choice.

I stayed here with the wife for a week, on her visit to Africa. I have visited Tamale before and stayed in a guest house, but this time wanted something a bit cleaner, safer and with better food. The Mariam did all of that, and is one of the best hotels in Tamale. Because of that it charges a premium for a service which seems a lot for western standards. I think this is the trend in Ghana, and we found the hotels in Accra to be even more expensive compared to a similar standard one in for example UK. The Mariam restaurant serves clean food, but it is a little bland. I ventured onto the streets a few times and the guinea fowl I tried was really tasty. If you are looking for a safe and clean place to stay and eat, and have family in tow, and if you can afford it this place is for you. If you want to be a bit more adventurous then try somewhere else.

In general hotels in Ghana are not soo good for the money you pay for it but this hotel is definitely not worth the money. USD 105 for a double in a room which seriously needs a renovation. Bathroom is old, matres hard and the rooms are overcrowded. The food in the restaurant is good.
