I stayed at Banda Inns on two occasions in March and it was lovely. I had two different rooms, the first was one of the larger upstairs rooms and the second was the smaller room downstairs by the spiral staircase. As a solo female traveller I thought this place was great, I had dinner on my second night there and...

We loved our stay at Banda Inns. Our room was comfortable and quiet, with a hot shower and free wifi. Breakfast was delicious, and the staff even made it early for us one morning when we were leaving Kampala at 6:00 a.m. There's free laundry, which was an amazing perk. It's easy to get shared taxis heading into town from...

The rooms are exceptionally clean and well appointed, the expansive breakfast menu is made...

I stayed in Banda Inns for a month (May-June 2014) and it made a foreign city feel like home. Ours was a group of 13 people from a university, so we were pretty needy. Whatever we needed, Steven and Astaria took care of it. They arranged airport transfers, daily transportation to wherever we needed -- sometimes even picking up very...

I feel very much at home at Banda Inns, having stayed there for 3 weeks in March 2014 and 3 weeks in November 2013 on work assignments. The place itself is very quiet, peaceful and green and located in a central but pleasant area of Kampala (Muyenga). The rooms are spacious, clean and well equipped. Wifi connectivity, power supply and...
