Picorna Hotel
Ranked #1 of 4 Hotels in Tamale
Reviewed 14 November 2010

This hotel is conveniently located near the centre of Tamale, but that's about all it has going for it. Prices have increased by 50% over what is listed in the most recent guidebooks (2009 and 2010), yet the hotel seems to have done nothing to justify the price increase. The gloomy rooms are in poor condition and not very clean, with cracked tiles, remains of old fixtures hanging on the walls, and pealing paint. The furniture has definitely seen better days. Rates now include breakfast, but I have no idea what you get because I got tired of waiting for the cook to show up and left to find my own food somewhere else. Would have been acceptable at the old rates, but now very overpriced for what you get.

My friend and I each had our own small room. Although we were told that the TV's and air conditioners worked and that there was hot water before paying for the rooms, we later found out that there was no hot water in either room and that the pressure was so low, it was difficult to rinse off the soap. The air conditioner was out of order in one room and in the other room it only worked at full blast, so it had to be turned on and off all night. The TV only worked in one room. The street noise quieted down around 10pm, but a TV in another room was blaring at full volume all night and into the morning. The food in the restaurant tasted like old reheated leftovers. My friend said that years ago, this was a great place to stay. Too bad it's fallen into such disrepair.

We had the most expensive room. The reception however did not inform us of a very noisy party that was planned for that evening. When we complained the reception personnel was very unfriendly and told us to get lost.
Furthermore, competing with the loud noise outside, in the dining hall several tvs and stereo installations were competing making the hotel a place where the forks and knives even vibrated on the table.
To complete the miserable experience, the rooms were dirty, doors broken and overall the room was in a bad state.
I therefore advise not to use this hotel!!!
