Frankie's is a landmark of Oxford St., the main drag in Osu, which makes it about as central as one can get if one is a short-term visitor to Ghana. That said, the rooms are windowless and bland, and can get noisy in the evenings if the hall windows are open to let in noise from the street. They're also rather expensive, given their unexceptional quality. They are clean, however.
The attached restaurant is a different, and more positive, story. Whilst it also has little in the way of character, it offers a broad menu with some good Lebanese staples (like hummus and falafel), and - key in my opinion - opens before 8 am for breakfast, including fresh-brewed coffee. Service can be a bit slow, so make sure to ask for your bill long before you'll need it. But overall it's a very solid choice if you're in a rush and looking for a wide range of safe, moderately-priced dishes.
