Amazing staff members especially the manager Donald. He will do anything and everything to make sure that the guests get what they need. The location is great. Being on the periphery of Kampala and close to the main Entebbe road is a huge plus. Housekeeping is great and the facility is clean. In short one gets the bang for the...

The hotel itself was les than I expected. It is located in a run down area of Kampala. The rooms were tiny. I was surprised that the rooms did not have shower cabins or curtains - the shower was between the toilet and a sink. It worked though, and the water was hot. The service was very good - the...

Hotel is very clean and new - the service is satisfactory, but a bit pricey on the food and beverage in comparison to its room rate which is good value for money. Good location, quite central to the city and surrounding areas although its not that easy to find - maybe a few more big signs on the main road...
