Super friendly service, excellent prices, yummy food, good laundry service, nice location, beautiful grounds, HOT showers, and clean rooms. There's not a place in town that is better than Emmaus. Seriously, a terrific place to stay!

I stayed at Emmaus last week with my friends. The price is excellent! Everything is very basic but comfortable. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The location is good on tank hill. Breakfast is included and it's okay. There are no bells and whistles at Emmaus but the value is good!

Emmaus in on Tank Hill in Muyenga, a spot which used to be the hub of expat-land in Kampala (and still has a fair number of us running about). The guest house is nice--large, clean, offers a decent free breakfast including cereal, eggs to order and toast. And the wifi is free and surprisingly strong. But at $20 a night...

We stayed at Emmaus on two occasions during our trip to Uganda. There was a problem with our booking they weren't expecting us! Thankfully they had rooms to accommodate us.

My stay was peaceful. Staff where very attentive and warm. Food was incredible. Grounds are great for relaxing in with an authentic gazebo for shade. Great Italian restaurant opposite called Cafe Roma - they do a great pizza! Location is excellent. Will definitely be back!

A team of us were working mainly in other parts of Uganda but stayed in Emmaus during our few days in Kampala. Staff are very friendly and the food is fantastic. Warm and welcoming atmosphere. Wifi was great for keeping in contact with friends and family back home. Beautiful garden and outdoor space. Definitely recommend!!

The service at Emmaus is great. Facilities are very good. Rooms are clean. Linens are clean. Food is great. I have stayed here alone (white female) and felt completely safe 24/7. Anything I needed, the staff was always happy to help. Great rates and great location too.

I went to Kampala for the first time and my family and I stayed at the Emmaus house. The Staff are so friendly and the garden was beautiful. The staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome. There's no other place I'd rather stay in Kampala. I hope to visit again soon!
