VI INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON AFRO-HISPANIC, LUSO-BRAZILIAN, AND LATIN AMERICAN STUDIES
(ICALLAS)

HOTEL ACCOMMODATION

The hotels and guest houses listed on this page are recommended to conference participants.

  • Most are located within a radius of less than 4 miles from the University of Ghana (the district in which the university is located is called LEGON).
  • All provide good services in a safe, appealing environment.
  • All are air-conditioned.
  • Some provide free transportation to and from the Kotoka International Airport.

Make your reservations early, [by April], and remember to confirm a few weeks before departure.  The country code for Ghana is 233. Make sure your EMAIL reservation is confirmed, and it would be wise to make a follow-up phone call, confirming all reservations. Also, when making reservations, please ensure it is clear whether or not breakfast and the required 15% VAT tax are included in the charges. NOTICE: Because of hectic traffic problems in Accra, take care in selecting hotels that may be too far from the university.
