Day four of the Ghana road trip: I regretfully leave paradise.
The one downside to the Axim Beach Hotel was, they cheaped out on the bed and used the cheapest, thinnest foam mattress possible. The bed was hard as a rock. I couldn’t get comfortable in any position and didn’t sleep well at all.
However, I adored the bathroom and the shower! It was so cute, with a pebbled floor shower stall and seashells embedded in the walls.
One other minor thing was their internet cafe had really old computers, so old they didn’t have USB ports. And the internet connection was painfully slow.
Regardless, at 40 cedis a night (about US$27.50) for a room with twin beds (all the rooms with a double bed were taken), it was a stupendous value for the money, even with the hard bed. I’d stay here again in a heartbeat. Maybe the uncomfortable bed was just in that particular room.
The sign said they accepted credit cards, so I pulled mine out. However, the young lady had to call for an authorization code, and of course at that hour no bank was open. I could either wait until a bank was open to pay with my credit card or pay with cash and leave immediately.
If you’re ever planning on staying at the Axim Beach Hotel, forget about trying to use your credit card. But do stay there!
