Luxe Suites Hotel
No 1 Switch Back Road, Accra
"Faux stone pillars at the entry and in the reception area, along with tile mosaic walk ways and parking area set the tone for this very pretty hotel. The room pictures on Expedia are spot on; we had one of the rooms that I had seen, and it was even prettier in person. The reception staff were cheerful and very helpful and efficient. The room was immaculate, pleasing to the eye, and the light fixtures, bed lamp, shower head, water heater, and fridge and AC all worked correctly. Clearly a lot of care is taken of the physical plant here. The room and its bath were clean, with crisp clean linens. The included breakfast was generous with toast, eggs and crepes. But the best aspect of the Luxe Suites is the Asian fusion restaurant. We had rice noodles, chicken stir fried with vegetables, and chicken with cashews. All were prepared correctly with authentic ingredients, including fresh Chinese cabbage, tree ear fungus, real glass (cellophane) rice noodles (not spaghetti imported from Ivory Coast), good soy sauce. The menu is huge. I would stop to eat there if I were just in Accra for the day. The only reason I do not add another star to my rating is the slow and sullen service by the restaurant staff. We who live in Ghana know this is the norm, but visitors will be put off. Ignore it and enjoy the lovely Cantonese food. I will definitely stay here again, and steer visitors to the Luxe Suites. Good value, pleasant surroundings, great food."
