The hotel was suggested to me by a friend, when I expressed interest on extending my stay in Accra. Nestled behind the larger than life I love Accra sign it is a structure you may miss getting caught up with the energy of Osun, Oxford Street. I arrived there after a long trip to Elmina and at first the lobby area is alright it's very small yet efficient. The staff were very welcoming and friendly so I felt at home. The decor is classic modern ikea type style, no over large or ornate furniture. I got a standard single room and they made use of every little space you could use your feet to turn on tv from your bed if you tried. It's very modern decor and wonderful artistic plays with the grayish paint. The bed was comfy, shower and toilet compact and tiny. I am a little thicker of a Human, so if I ate one more plate of jollof, I may not have fit into the shower. It's also all stairs so if you are an elevator person, It maybe a no go for this hotel. I was on the first level thankfully ! I was comfy with my first room facing what looked like a banku restaurant and someone's home, till 2am hit a totally batty cock went off cock o doodling all night long. I didn't sleep a wink. I complained bright and early to the front desk staff, and they immediately asked if I would like to be moved to another room. I obliged before, I would be forced to make fried chicken with my guest town crier chicken. My new room faced the jumping Osun streets which didn't bother me at all, the Windows maybe sound proof because I slept like a baby that night and through my stay. The room cleaning staff were good and so friendly and helpful. There was complimentary breakfast but I missed it everyday, I sleep late what can I say. When I dragged myself out of bed , I would head to the yummy lil restaurant they had behind the tiny lobby. They had local and continental dishes, but I fell in love with there avocado and egg open sandwich. It was so yummy had it everyday I was there, and the staff were always so pleasant and accommodating. I peeped other meals and it all looked yummy, and outside they have a balcony bar and Mediterranean style cafe. The hotel is located by everything, from souvenir vendors of all sorts, to food sellers, restaurants, night clubs, bars, super markets, and money changers. You are in thick of things staying at this hotel. I walked to most of the things I wanted to get into. There's also a chill hang out lounge area that's indoor out door in the hotel to chillax by yourself or with pals. Overall a great stay, I'll be back as soon as we can travel to Ghana again. I want to give a big kudos to Michael front desk , and the Nigerian security guard for going above and beyond to show me true customer service. Great bang for my buck in Urbano, ps the have suits and 2 floor rooms so you can spring for the works if you want. Medaasi Glitt !

The hotel is well situated on Oxford Street so there are lots of places to eat nearby and stalls. I stayed in a room with kitchenette so there was a stove microwave and plates etc. The room was a good size. Decor was good. No view but there was rust in the bathroom and the furniture was a little tired. Plates also not super clean. The room definitely could have been cleaner but there were no mosquitoes and air con worked well which you needed cos Ghana is extremely hot right now. Lots of plug sockets everywhere. Oxford Street is very busy so yes the music carries and it’s like a 24 hour party street so there’s lots of noise and you can even hear the odd aeroplane fly over. Im not a deep sleeper but I was so busy and exhausted at the end of the day that I slept through it all. My biggest issue was the WiFi. I was in room 101 and it didn’t work. Hotel don’t give you a password but ask that you hand your phone to security for them to type it in for you, which I found strange but hey. I had to go to the lobby or stand close to the door for WiFi which was frustrating. Friends who also stayed here said they had no problem with it but they mainly used their data. Housekeeping can be done till 10pm, but all they do is empty the bin and make the bed. Breakfast is 7-10. Primarily continental. They didn’t understand gluten intolerance so there were limited options and the food was not kept at a hot temperature so I avoided much of it. It’s nothing to write home about.

The hotel is well-located on busy Oxford Road in the Osu area where one can walk to shops and restaurants. There is a Shop-Rite supermarket just a few blocks down Oxford Road that we particularly appreciated to buy water, Ghanaian chocolate (for gifts) as well as everything else that a supermarket would have. The hotel does supply water bottles in the rooms but we needed more for our longer travels in the area. The hotel does not have an elevator. Our room 223 faced inward to a courtyard. So, we did not have any noise problems but I could see how it would be noisy if your room faced Oxford Road. The room was large and the bathroom,a/c and wi-fi were fine. I wished there was more than one small lamp rather than having to use overhead lighting. The hotel breakfast was varied and good. The hotel staff members were consistently helpful and polite. One can easily get a taxi in front of the hotel if needed.

The hotel is a good location. BUT if you room face to main roads will be noisy at night. My room number 213 and the hotel window cannot close tight and whole sleep cannot sleep due to many people cheating out side and noisy music.
