I just had the worst hotel experience ever. The room in Fang Fang was old and dark. Internet not working. Cannot make international calls. The A/C cord was so old that i was afraid that if i let it on while i was away, it would catch the room on fire. The staff were not friendly. Breakfast is too simple,...

In all, my stay at Fang Fang Hotel was marked by silver lining. I especially recommend it in comparison with the nearby but slightly creepier, more depressing and more expensive Fairway Hotel. Hiccup 1: I found room rates online and called to make a reservation. Initially they denied that any rooms were $40/night (as the website promises for single occupancy...

Fang Fang family is a Chinese-owned and operated hotel, and the family is one of the oldest Chinese families in Uganda. The hotel is strange because it does not feel like one is in Africa, unless you need someone to do menial tasks e.g. get your bags or room-service, then you interact with Ugandans. Most of the time at the...

We originally booked an $89 room with no AC. When shown the room, we noticed it had a damp, musty smell, as if there had been recent water damage. We requested another room and were "upgraded" to an AC room for no additional cost. This seemed like a gracious move on their part until we settled in. The room had...

I usually burn to write on tripadvisor after exceptionally great or bad experiences. But also the mediocre warrants some attention. For 90US$ per night, I've kind of come to expect constant availability of hot water and some shampoo in the bathroom. Instead, Fangfang provides you with odd furniture and a small cockroach. But it's kind of hard to get angry....

I lived in this hotel for a month whilst on a project in Kampala. It's in quite a convenient location near enough the centre, but far enough to avoid noise and hassle. Some of the other hotels (including more pricey ones) can have a very seedy edge, this one is well run and maintains good standards, you'd be happy to...

Disappointed with this hotel. It was not value for money and we found the service rather poor to the point where we actually got refunded for part of our stay. The rooms are adequate but rather gloomy and dull and they often have VERY loud music pumping until the early hours of the morning to the point where you can...
