I’d like to recommend the Salmarise Hotel in North Legon, for those wishing to stay at a hotel near the University of Ghana.
The Salmarise Hotel (20 Kofi Annan Road, North Legon) has clean rooms with en-suite, hot water and air-conditioning. Wifi is sometimes available, and it is free. Rates include breakfast and they have a restaurant that serves typical Ghanaian fare for lunch and supper (12 GHS for chicken, 15 GHS for fish). The staff is sweet and the location is great for those who need to stay close to the U of Ghana. Rates are 53 GHS for a single bed, 72 GHS for a double, and 93 GHS for an executive suite. They currently have 6 single, 6 double and 4 executive suites, and are expanding the hotel to add more rooms and a conference centre by next year (maybe). Taxi drivers from the airport will not know how to get to the hotel, so carry their phone number with you: +233 (0) 302 520730; +233 (0) 24 9219564. Taxis from the airport should cost 10 GHS and no more than 15 GHS, but I’ve had drivers try to charge me 35, so be prepared to haggle.
