Bissau's most luxurious hotel, the Ledger (known to taxi drivers by its former name Lybia Hotel) is where politicians, businesspeople and the small expatriate community congregate – the latter primarily on Sundays for a day by the pool and a pricey buffet lunch (CFA20,000). It's efficiently designed with contemporary furnishings and rooms – even the small economy ones are comfortable.
The Ledger is a large, well-guarded complex 8km east of the airport. It's convenient for late-night arrivals and those who aren't interested in venturing out. A bar, two restaurants, and a bank with an ATM are on the premises.
Located in Bissau, Ledger Plaza Bissau Hotel boasts a garden and terrace. Guests can make use of the outdoor pool or the children's playground, or enjoy views of the pool and garden. With a shared lounge, the 5-star hotel has air-conditioned rooms with free WiFi. All units at the hotel come with a seating area, wardrobe, a desk and a TV, and some rooms at Ledger Plaza Bissau Hotel have a balcony. The private bathroom includes a shower. Speaking Arabic and English at the reception, staff are willing to help at any time of the day. NGO Accao & Desenvolvimento is 1.4 km from the accommodation, while American Embassy is 2 km away.
