I was in Accra for 2 days last month and stayed at the Royal Richester. I have stayed at 2 other hotels previously, and was pleasantly surprised by this unique find. It's located a fair way away from town, but that is perfect. (by far i mean 5km from the new Accra Mall = $3 taxi ride!!!)
The hotel has a 24 hour bar (yay!), and friendly staff. The wireless internet is intermittent but fast. The rooms in the main hotel are huge, but the decor is a little outdated. Each room has a fridge, flat screen and stove (in case you want to cook your own food which, if youre here for 2 weeks, you will want to.)
The pool area is very relaxing, and refreshing after a day in traffic. Be warned that if your room is pool side facing over a weekend, you wont sleep due to late night party goers.
For the price it is great. BUT, pity they cant do a simple english breakfast in West Africa. Its limited to cereal, omlettes and pine apple......
