In spite of having announced the hot bath on a grand scale, only cold water had been used in my room of this hotel. Although I asked the hotel staffs for the improvement, it was refused in the very impolite attitude and the apology of the hotel was not obtained, either. I use many hotels in Ghana. However, such an... More

If you are willing to put up with an atmosphere of unfinished renovation and a few "bizarre situations", this hotel might be worth it. The staff is extremely nice and the hotel is well located in the Osu central part of Accra. You can walk to the banks, get a cab easily to go to the craft markets and other... More

We spent our first three nights in Ghana in the Central Hotel in Accra. The room was large and comfortable. However, the "hot" water was tepid at best and complaining to the front desk was of no value. The bathroom sink couldn't drain because the drain was stuck in the down position. Their solution was to remove it altogether. The... More

Central hotel has 2 branches km away one to each other. My contact in Ghana recommended one in Ridge area - close to British High Commission, as good value for money (120$/night). Only good point of this hotel is location that is close to Oxford street, close to main Government buildings which is really advantage because heavy traffic could be... More

The Hotel is well situated and within walking distance to the Oxford Street where you have all the shopping, restaurants and hot spots. The rooms ar OK, maintenance however is sometimes neglected. The staff is helpfull and things get fixed after lodging a complain. A little tighter management would do wonders! TV is standard not much choice. WiFi is good.... More

I was put up in this hotel at last minute by the Ghanaian company that I was working for as the Best Western Premier could not occupy me for my 6 week trip. My first impression was that it was going to be very basic. It seems as though they have two sister hotels on same plot and I was... More

The advantage is the bathtube and the location and the kitchinette. Like most Ghanaian hotels the value is much behind the money u pay.

Recently stayed 1 week at Central Hotel in Osu. The rooms are large, air conditioned with marble flooring throughout with kitchenette, and clean draperies. There is a large bathroom with shower/tub, toilet and sink and lots of hot water. The breakfast is very basic --one egg omlette with white toast, orange juice and coffee or alternately additional "sausage" and beans... More

Cheap, clean quiet within easy walk of Osu area. A lot calmer location than other venues on the high street.
