Crystal Rose Hotel: "Worst Hotel In Ghana" Kumasi Hotel Tip by bdinphoenix

Kumasi Hotels: 12 reviews and 21 photos

The Crystal Rose Hotel may be the worst hotel in the world, not just in Ghana. Where to start. The roof leaked, right above the bed. The bed was uncomfortable. The toilets were turned off every night about 10PM and the front desk would not turn them back on until the next morning. The ground level windows did not lock and the curtains did not cover the windows adequately. The air conditioner leaked onto the floor and the furniture in the hotel room. Toilet paper had to be requested every day because room "service" would not leave any on their own. The final insult was when the hotel management permitted street vendors to come into the hotel to sell their wares. The vendors did this during meals, in the lobby and just about any place else they spotted a guest. The only good thing here was the food was decent. Only stay at the Crystal Rose if you wish to be miserable.

Unique Qualities: The people were friendly but they did nothing to alleviate their many problems.
