If you're looking for an affordable and clean accommodation in Accra with excellent service along with hot water, AC, and wireless internet that actually works, then look no further. I highly recommend the Osdahouse Home Lodge after staying there for a couple weeks in March 2013.
First, the property itself and the rooms are extremely clean and in great condition. I stayed in a spacious room in the newer building, which is less than two-years old. The rooms are simple, yet contain everything you need - hot water, extra towels and flat sheet, wireless internet, a TV with cable, a mini-fridge, and AC. The shower had great water pressure, and the AC was very quiet. In addition, the internet was speedy the majority of the time. Beyond your room, the newer building contains a lounge with a microwave and huge TV. The older building contains a breakfast room as well as a kitchen equipped with utensils and cooking ware. The rooms, hallways, and additional common areas were consistently spotless.
Second, the hotel has excellent hospitality. As others have already commended, both Seth and Dorothy are wonderful hosts and always ask you how you are doing. In addition, all the staff are very friendly and receptive to requests. The hotel also has excellent security. The hotel is in a residential area and quiet.
The only two drawbacks include: 1) the location and 2) lack of restaurants in the area. The hotel is outside the center of Accra - if traveling to Accra Central, Osu, or Airport Residential Area, it does take some time with traffic. I traveled back and forth to Accra Central during rush hour and it took about 40 minutes one-way (about $5). Without traffic, it's much closer.
The other downside was the lack of dinner options in the area. Luckily, if you like cooking, there is a kitchen available and fridge in each room. In addition, a simple breakfast of toast, eggs, and fruit is offered. They also sell drinks and limited snacks. Overall, this hotel is a gem in Accra given its affordable prices, exceptional service, and comfortable rooms. I highly recommend it and hope to return again soon.
