Hans Cottage Botel is an eco-tourist orientated hotel, located on the road from Cape Coast to Kakum National Park. The hotel is inside a lagoon with crocodiles. The hotel has a capacity of 45 beds.
Notice the name "Botel" instead of hotel.
Very close to the citycentre, to the lagoon and to the beach of Cape Coast, you will find the nice guesthouse "Sammo's Guesthouse". For a very reasonable price you can sleep here in a very reasonable accommodation.
To start with the rooms: Sammo's has three different types of rooms: double, self-contained, rooms with private toilet and shower, and double rooms with shared facilities, some small ones and some large ones. A large "shared" bedroom costs 83.000 cedis ($ 8,30) and a small one is 68.000 cedis. A self-contained bedroom is more expensive, and is just over 100.000 cedis per night.
For this amount of money you get a decent room with fan, a good bed (but take your own sheets with you) and enough toilets and showers. They are not spotless, but clean enough and the water of course is cold.
Sammo's also has a nice rooftop-restaurant, where you can have a drink or a good and cheap meal. Chicken or fish is served with several types of rice or chips, but be prepared to wait at least 30 minutes or even longer. But in the meantime, the view is great, with the sea nearby.
Downstairs there is a nice, shady terrace outside where you can have a drink, and from there it is only a few minutes walk to the beach, and about 10 minutes to the Castle and the best restaurants of the city.
Finally, a good word for the staff: the staff is very nice and especially the manager is a very helpful man who does everything to please you.
