I stayed at Byblos for seven nights while I was in Accra for a business conference. I didn't care to leave the premise for anything aside from the meetings which I went to during the day.

I was so pleased with the value of the hotel. The room was clean and cool, the staff was helpful, the bedroom and bathroom were spacious....the location, outstanding!

My colleages stayed at another hotel in the city and couldn't help but join me every night for a cold beer, or two on the outside patio of Venus, Byblos' restaurant, where we could sit in the shade, discuss business for a while, and soon settle into the relaxed environment of Ghana, which Venus captures so well. The evenings become busy with locals, for the delicious, mostly Lebanese food, or a cocktail.

I was sad to leave, and am already looking forward to whenever work pulls me back to Accra.

I would recommend this hotel and restaurant to everyone.

Despite a nice looking courtyard, above average restaurant and some good reviews, I was very disappointed with this place. I was shown my room - it was terrible and very old, shabby and run down.

There are much better hotels in area for similar price.

Byblos is by far the best value of a clutch of mid range hotels in the Osu district of Accra. Osu is the area where many expats hang out and is full of bars, cafes and restaurants. The hotel is undergoing some renovations, but rooms are clean, well furnished, with good hot showers, good AC, TVs and fridges. There is a nice, AC bar (Venus) on site, which also does good Lebanese food. Only drawback was the presence of some mosquitos (probably from the open drains which are everywhere in Ghanaian towns and cities). Popular with volunteers, who know good value when they find it. Free WIFI in bar. Generous 2pm checkout time, which can be extended to 3pm (useful for those evening flights home).

Stayed March 2009, traveled solo

This is the best hotel to stay in Osu, Accra. Clean rooms, TV, Air-conditioning, and friendly and helpful staff. If you are looking to meet other people in the city, the connected Venus Lounge and Bar is a popular place for locals and travellers...not to mention the home of amazing Lebanese food and the best cocktails of the city.

  • Liked — The environment...the location...the night life at Venus.

In july 2007 there was a big conference in Accra so unfortunately we had to stay at the byblos "hotel". When we arrived the reserved room from 70 usd was now 90 usd. The "reception" had no pricelist. There was often no light and airco, no water or only dripping, walls seem to have be painted 30 years ago. We were addressed by the cleaning person (they have hardly any personal to make as much profit as possibel) that we should not throw the dirty towels on the ground of the bathroom because we should use them again!!! The breakfast consist of uneatable bread, orange juice cost extra if u don't complain. We were very happy to get out of this rip off place as soon as possibel.
