“A great place in a great city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2014

At first I thought it was a mistake that I was being treated like such a VIP (both Dr. Seth and Dorothy were incredibly warm and welcoming) but then I noticed that these genuine people-along with the rest of the staff- actually make it a point to take care of each individual guest. I overhead them arranging to get people from the airport, speaking about what some preferred for breakfast, and even knew the email addresses and complete travel itineraries of some others. I had a great time during my 12-day stay in Accra and I know that a large part of that is due to my OSDA experience. Breakfast was great, internet access was helpful and rooms (including the AC and showers) were super nice. Above it all, though, the staff and the other guests made the stay very memorable. I was visiting friends who were temporarily working at Korle-Bu hospital, and there were about 7 people in our group total, plus others we met while there. We all agree that this place was great.

Room Tip: the rooms are all somewhat different, so it might be good to view a few before deciding (if that'...

Me and a classmate stayed at Osda House for 4 weeks while working at Korle-Bu hospital. Seth and Dorothy were so kind and accommodating--it was as if they were our parents abroad! The staff is also very attentive. Breakfast is yummy--we ate the same thing for 4 weeks straight and didn't get sick of it! Plus, internet is reliable and FAST. Calling the US from skype was no problem with the internet connection (which isn't the case in most other places in Accra). There are also plenty of street food stands and restaurants near by to eat at. Thanks so much! Hopefully we'll be back someday!

We try our best to make the Osdahouse experience an enjoyable one. The best part is being able to dhare the space with people from all over the world. The best part is the breakfast conversation before people step ou to face Accra.

It was far from the airport but the owner will pick you up at the airport for 15 cedi. The owners were very nice and a free breakfast was provided the next day. We stayed in the family room which was very large. Bathroom/shower was kind of rundown but not the worst I have seen in Ghana.

We stayed here with our family. The owner, Dr. Seth picked us up from Airport both times we stayed here and he was really friendly. Our kids felt at home and settled down easily. The place was clean and provided all the facilities we needed. It felt really safe. Dr. Seth was very understanding when we had to get food and waited for us patiently and even took us on an impromptu tour of Accra. We will stay here again when we next visit Ghana.

The feeling is mutual. we seek to bring the best in people out, as we deal with them courteously and with respect. Our goal is to make our guests feel at home and use our facilities as a spring board for their visit to Ghana. Anything we can do to make that happen is our goal.

Stayed in Osda House twice with my family during July & August 2013 when transiting via Accra. First time for 2 nights and then for 1 night. As I was traveling with the family, we stayed at the 2 bedroom flat which turned out to be perfect for us.

The best part of the stay was Dr. Seth who owns/runs the Guesthouse. He was very prompt in answering my numerous inquiries and when he got to know that I would be traveling with small children he even came to the airport to pick us up!!The gust house is situated in a residential area and is very clean and well maintained. Our 2 bed room flat also came with a kitchen which was a big bonus. In a city with overpriced hotels, we found Osda House to be very reasonably priced and I very much doubt whether you will find a better value for money deal in Accra. If you are staying in Osda House, I highly recommend you to organize the airport pick up/drop with the Guest House itself.

On the downside – it is a bit away from Airport. It also doesn’t have an in-house restaurant and the breakfast choice is limited. But these are very minor niggles compared to what you get for the price you pay and the homely atmosphere that comes with it. We do not see ourselves staying anywhere else in Accra and have already booked the two bedroom flat for our upcoming one night stay in January 2014.

I just spent a week in Ghana. I was fortunate enough to stay at OSDA House. Seth and Dorothy are wonderful owners/hosts and worked hard to make sure my stay was pleasant. The room was very simple and nice with an air conditioner, fan (TV-never turned it on) and my own private bathroom!!

I never once was concerned about the safety of myself or my belongings! Cudos to the OSDA Staff! If you're looking for a trip to experience being with the people of Ghana, and not looking for a fancy hotel, this is the place for you!

Room Tip: There are larger suites in the main house.

We are pleased that several people who have stayed at Osdahouse are saying the same thing. That it is clean and comfortable. We plan to keep that going so that all our guests will be poroud of the work we do here. The price makes it worth it all.

We stayed at Osdahouse for 2 nights and we enjoyed it very much! The staff is very friendly and always available to help. The rooms are very spacious and clean, with good beds and an excellent shower. The first night we had a problem with the airco, Mr. Seth personally made sure it was fixed in no time.

If I go back to Accra, I wouldn't hesitate to stay at Osdahouse again!

We have found that listening to our guests and responding to their needs is the best policy. In the Third World there will always be minor problems but the difference at Osdahouse is how quickly we respond to the observations of our guests.

Having happy guests is good for our business.
