Paloma Hotel, Accra – Ghana – Review By Akesse Sanza


Advertisement


Paloma Hotel is located along Ring Road Central in Accra, Ghana. As expected of hotels in Accra, the rooms are overpriced with a Double Room Single Occupancy going for USD70 (GHS700) at the time of my visit.

Paloma Hotel is ideal for guests who are concerned about their safety as its location makes it easily accessible any time of day or night. The location is also a problem for persons who wish to have some quiet time, relax or enjoy their sleep.

The Ring Road Central is a busy road with cars plying it throughout the day and night. The cars and the hooting of horns are a whole lot of noise for someone who wants to catch some sleep.

Yes, I was there.

Yes, I was there.

Breakfast

Paloma Hotel offers a buffet for breakfast. Its breakfast is considered one of the best among two-star hotels in Ghana. Most hotels would serve hot water and Milo as breakfast and this makes Paloma Hotel a good choice for guests who factor in breakfast when making a decision.

For someone who has stayed in several hotels across the globe, the buffet doesn’t have so many options and the foods in pans are not enough. You could hear the food telling you “I’m not enough, take just a bit and leave the rest for others” lol.

The fruit juice in the jug always looked like the last glass and anyone wouldn’t want to take everything. Your conscience forces you to leave some for others.

Is that an empty jug or enough for one person?

All the same, I can assure you that their breakfast is one of the best you can get among its group of two-stars hotels in Ghana. Few improvements to the varieties and quantity of foods would go a long way to raise their guest ratings.

Breakfast at Paloma Hotel

Breakfast at Paloma Hotel

Staff

Smiling is not a thing I noticed during my stay. One waiter, Mawuli (not too sure of the name), is the friendliest I found. The receptionists are welcoming but can do more by first greeting guests. The woman at the breakfast section never greeted us. Greeting guests isn’t a thing at the hotel though once approached, they willingly provide the needed assistance.

Cleanliness

The hotel does very well when it comes to cleaning. The rooms are cleaned daily and bedspreads are replaced. Towels weren’t replaced because we didn’t leave them on the floor. Though the hotel has indicated that towels should be left on the floor if guests want them changed, I personally find it awkward to leave towels on the floor. Used towels should be changed whether they are dirty or not.

If there is one thing that will bring me back to the hotel, it’s their bathroom. It’s rare to find a 2-star hotel with such neat bathrooms in Ghana.

Value for money

Hotel rooms are overpriced in Accra. You pay more for less. When compared to other hotels in Accra, I can say there is value for money. If you have no problem with the noise from the cars using the Ring Road Central road, then it’s a good choice.

There is no value for money when compared to hotels outside Ghana. It’s a general thing among hotels in the country and as such, it is better to limit the comparison to hotels in the country only.

The rooms at Paloma Hotel are charged per occupancy; either single or double, and as such, visitors are not allowed in the room. Names of guests are collected at the time of check-in and if you plan to host your wife or girlfriend later for a few minutes, that won’t be possible. While this prevents the hotel from being used as a prostitution hub, it becomes difficult for guests to spend time with their loved ones if they weren’t part of the plan at the time of booking. So if someone might join you later, include their names in the booking and make the necessary payments so that they are not considered visitors.

Location

The location of Paloma Hotel has Pros and Cons. While the location is too noisy, it is easily accessible and has several eating places and shops that are just walking distance away.
