I was in room 21. Good: fan worked. Location close to market. Clean sheets. Price. Staff was sometimes nice.
Bad: filth. Years of no cleaning are required to build up this much. 2 requests and 6 hours needed to get the only towel I received. AC didn't work. No hot water - nothing was broken, there were no hot water pipes. Cockroaches and mosquitos. No trash basket. Shower was a spigot that came out of the wall 3 feet up. Included breakfast was two slices, an egg, and Nescafe. No butter or jam or anything else. Broken window in bathroom. Hall so dark I needed a flashlight to work the key.

Rooms needs to be maintained starting from curtains to plumbing. You have to take trips to the reception for AC remote every time you need to put it on because apparently only one is available. How so??
Taps leak in bathrooms, and oh they could use some air freshening in rooms and corridors the place is stuffy.

Most of the reviews say the staff were friendly, but that wasn't my experience, the front desk is almost always empty and you find different people at the reception area every time.

Then again, the food was OK and affordable , hotels location is perfect and easily accessible if you want to tour the city.

The hotel is situated quite in the heart of Kumasi, which is rather comfortable because it is a safe place as well. I see good reviews of the restaurant, but we didn't try it. We actually switched rooms, not only because of the balcony, but also because of the musty mold smell. The hotel good do way better, because it's not ugly, but there seems like a lack of maintenance and that looks neglected. The cocktail bar is closed since 2014, but the rest of the decorating is at least twenty years old. Which is not bad at all, but in a view years it really needs replacements and I doubt that will happen.

I stayed at the Sanbra Hotel for 3 nights. I had the most basic single room for only 80 cedis a night. Yes the room was basic, but everything seemed clean and was working properly. They also seem to have very nice rooms with AC for a slightly higher price.
The best for this hotel is its location! Right in the center of Kumasi. Very close to the Kejetia market. From here it is easy enough to get a trotro to where ever you want to go in the city.
I stayed in for dinner in the hotel twice and was very pleased! I had the garlic grilled chicken and the grilled tilapia. Both very well prepared and seasoned. The restaurant seemed very popular with locals for dinner or take away.

Sandra hotel located in the art of kumasi city center of Adum is one of the best budget lodge in the heart kumasi, the food is great and it's in a very safe location near the Kumasi Police headquarters and not far from the largest biggest market in west Africa famously known as the Kejetia Market"
