This tower of self-catering apartments is a fantastic and convenient base in central Accra, just a block from Oxford Street. The standard apartments are good, although it’s definitely worth upgrading to a superior room if possible, as the difference is quite pronounced. All are air-conditioned, with well-equipped kitchenettes including fridge, cooker, microwave and utensils. The suites, unsurprisingly, have more space and light than the rooms. Some of the suites are in fact duplexes, with two double rooms and a separate seating area – perfect for families who require a bit more space and like to be able to close the door on the sleeping kids. For those times when a ready-prepared meal is called for, there’s a cosy 7th floor restaurant with fantastic city views. A café by the entrance downstairs is also a convenient, if somewhat pricey, source of drinks and snacks. Those looking to stay for a while can negotiate a monthly rate. All told, it’s a great addition to Accra’s accommodation portfolio and puts some of the more expensive hotels to shame – its prices make it one of the only mid-priced options in Accra full stop. Price includes breakfast. Highly recommended.
