Villa Monticello Boutique Hotel is the best hotel in the capital of Ghana and with only 14 rooms I expected it a very personalized experience. I arrived late and received a warm welcome, drink and was right after escorted to the room.
Each of Villa Monticello’s rooms are individuel designed. I stayed in a Nelson Mandela Room which had an impressive traditional African design and photos of the great Nelson Mandela and Cape Town. The room had a working desk, comfortable bed and a lovely bathroom. Separate rain shower from the bathtub and Acqua di Palma products. The food was another pleasant surprise. After placing my orders, I talked to some locals that told me this was the best restaurant in Accra and as I had already read positive reviews of the restaurant, I was excited. A great experience indeed and comparable with some of the Michelin recommended restaurants I’ve expereinced in Europe.
The service was up to a higher standard than I had expected. Great staff and professional front desk. Their General Manager is very friendly and Villa Monticello felt well managed in all departments. There are quite a few great hotels in West Africa, but Villa Monticello is the best one I have experienced and I doubt you will find any better hotel in West- or Centralafrica.
My opinion: Great+ experience.
