Horrible with a capital H Jul 16, 2011
If you ever find yourself in Accra, please dont make the mistake of staying at this dump of a hotel. The Novotel Accra is old and tired. As soon as you step off the elevators you are hit by a wave of stench that continues to your room. The carpets in the hallways have dark mystery stains all over, and it is not any different inside the room.

The room itself is fairly small, with some ratty furniture. Even the cushion of the chair had stains on it. The TV is an ancient CRT set with a small screen. The only saving grace is the bathroom (which only has a tub and no shower stall). It was clean and functional which was not expected. There is no iron or ironing board in the room, a deal breaker for business travellers. The food from room service and the breakfast buffet was decent but nothing great.

Having stayed at dozens of hotels across the world, this hotel truly ranks as the worst one I have stayed at. There is a brand new hotel, called Movenpick, right next to the Novotel that opened less than a month ago which would be a much better choice if you have stay in city center.
