I stayed one night at this Hotel. I was suppose to stay two, but changed after the first night. The Hotel looks very nice when you first enter it, but the good impression falls when you enter the room. So here is room for a lot of improvement. 1. The floor at the room looked/felt like it was falling apart....

While the location leaves a little to be desired, if you stay anywhere else in Kampala, you are probably wasting your money. Food, service and rooms are great. Great AC, very comfy beds in quiet rooms, with lots of hot and good water. Stay. You will be glad you did.

Our 6th Hotel of the trip, Mt. Zion Hotel was by far the best. Friendly helpful staff, well maintained and rooms that were mind-blowing. Felt like a castle. And the view was incredible. This was the first hotel we stayed at in Israel where we did not feel like we were an "inconvenience". "Thank you" to the wonderful staff.

The bed was very comfortable and the room was extremely clean. The staff were nice and helpful. The rooms are equipped with an air conditioning unit which blew nice cold air. It was a pleasant stay but the location is not good. Traffic was terrible and we had to pass through a dangerous area to reach the hotel. For that...

We picked this hotel as it was far better priced than many others, but yes it is near downtown in a commercial sector but approachable from a quiet street of a main road or commercial-side. In Kampala the situation seems to reflect on the price. When we arrived, we were met with a welcoming fruit juice!!! Our room was spacious,...

If you want to save time and your domain is the city center then spending night here is not a bad idea. Fortunately the mattress is good, rooms neat and spacious. Hotel is reasonably new, therefore maintained. Price ranges from 50 to 75 usd per night. Rooftop is restaurant, gym, steam, massage and spa. Breakfast is not bad. Since I...

I am a repeat customer at Mt. Zion. The hotel is an oasis in the heart of Kiseka market. Once you step inside, the facility is so clean and welcoming that you feel at home right away. The security guard at the entrance, the housekeeping staff, receptionists, all the way to the manager are the epitome of politeness. Take your...

“When I went I used the rooms in the north because they are calm with right quantity of light and. But still if you need a sunny room, just be straight and tell the receptionists that you want the single standard rooms in the East although if you need some kind of noise and you enjoy seeing the busy area you request the western room and you will be glad. But still if you want to see the whole city of Kampala occupy the southern room and lastly when I went up on the terrace, I had to see the whole Kampala city and it looks wonderful when its night.”
