Reviewed January 26, 2011

Managers seem to be trying but staff have lost interest. Whole place needs refurbishment and re-organisation to be a competitive basic 3 star hotel. Catering very basic. Self catering facilities sparse. Free wireless broadband a real bonus. Good location for Osu bars, restaurants and night life. Could take you free of charge to sister hotel in Cantonments with a pool (but did not try it). Will be opening a third hotel in the new 'chain' soon. Owners need to 'get a grip' on the operation if they want to be competitive as currently you don't get what you pay for, but there was no pressure or coersion in any way.

I stayed in the Osu central hotel for some time the staff were very friendly and helpful i really enjoyed my stay with them, Osu has a pool and internet but the tv reception in the rooms can be hit and miss, the only other down side to this hotel is the price of the food it is expencive unlike the ridge central hotel which is self catering.. so its a wander to a restaurant most nights to keep the hol costs down also worth asking for breakfast to be included with the cost of the room... I havent stayed at the ridge so i dont know what thats like but in Osu the one with the pool, was clean and to a reasonable standard I would say in the uk this would get 3.5 stars poss 4 stars on a good day..

I was recommended this hotel by my customer in Ghana which happens to be a Multinational Company. I was told that they would pick me up from the airport. Finally, after a long wait of 2 hours and series of phone calls, the vehicle arrived at the airport.
The room where I was put, was called "double room", which had kitchenet with all gadgets like microwave, refridgerator, cooking range etc.
There was no hot water, the bathroom was extremely conjusted. There was no provision for fixing of bath curtain. It was made to rest on one side in a window and on the other side, on the top of basin mirror. The floor of bathroom was absolutely dirty, with no traces of cleaning done.
The kitchen smell was dwelling allover.
After I returned from the day's work, i requested to check if any other room is available. The lady at the reception checked and took me to one room. Unfortunately / fortunately, she could not open the room lock !! I somehow managed to stay overnight in the room.
There was no internet connection available (though it was supposed to be freely available).
Finally I checked out of the hotel next morning and shifted to a much better place.
All this experience at US$80 per day is certainly not worth !

Central Hotel Osu is a very cool place to stay. Its off Oxford Street and located within a quiet residential vicinity.

I enjoyed my stay. However If you are looking Ghana dishes you may need to take a short walk across the road.

The most interesting thing about Central Hotel is that it is most ideal for long stay because each room comes with a kitchen (cooker, mcrowave fridge and a dining with pots and other necessary cooking utensils)

My Family & I enjoyed our stay in accra.
