The University of Ghana has two guest houses to accommodate participants: The University Guest Centre and Yiri Lodge. It is also very close to very big private hotels. Although there are a few expensive hotels in Accra, the nightly accommodation cost ranges from $80 to $130. Most of the hotels provide transportation services, including airport transfers, transportation for conferences, and transportation to tourist sites. Most of the hotels serve both continental and local food and some have gyms and other related facilities.
For IASFM18, the University of Ghana will be partnering with two local hotels - the Errata Hotel and the Mensvik Grand Hotel. We are currently negotiating a discounted rate, details of which will be announced soon. You will need to make your own booking. Transport will be provided to and from these two hotels and the conference venue on a daily basis (07.45am departure, 19.00 and 20.00 return)
There are a wide range of other accommodation options in Accra including AirBnB. Conference participants are welcome to make their own arrangements to suit their needs and budget but should be aware that the traffic in Accra is very bad, especially in the morning and early evening. If you choose to stay in central Accra away from the University campus in East Legon you can expect to spend significant sitting time in traffic. Journey times of 1-2 hours for a 5km trip are not uncommon.
