I stayed in a hotel called Asempa Hotel in Takoradi, Ghana during my recent sojourn there. On their house rules list were some expressions I felt l couldn’t but share with you guys.
House rule No 6: customers are advised not to entertain too many visitors in their rooms as this may DISTURD fellow lodgers. House rule No 8: kindly refrain from TEMPERING with electrical installations. All problems must be reported to the front desk.
Never mind the typos, it's a great place to stay if you ever find yourself in Takoradi. It's relatively new and affordable. Single room goes for $35. With free breakfast.
And it is in the centre of town along the city's Liberation Road close to the Market Circle where you can find the cheapest fish in the world as the city is bordered by the Atlantic.
