Kampala is a nightmare city - chaotic, dusty, ugly but full of friendly people and the wonderful Banda inns which is a welcome oasis. It feels like you're staying at someone's house (but with private facilities!) with a peaceful setting in a lovely garden. The food is amazing (I don't know if I was delirious from travelling but I'm still...

Booked one night in Kampala at Banda Inns but immediately booked more once we arrived. A little bit out from the main part of Kampala but this is an advantage! The vibe was like staying in someone's family home with overfamiliar dog included. Steven and Asteria were extremely helpful and provided advice about getting around Kampala. Best roast chicken in...

We really enjoyed our stay. Best points: friendly owners and staff, reliable and trustworthy travel assistance/advice, very clean rooms, prompt service, nice breakfast, welcoming atmosphere, wifi is good and is always on. We appreciated the taxi service they provide but be advised, it is a bit on the expensive side. It is convenient though if you need to go out...

We decided to spend our nights here after having seen many very good reviews on tripadvisor. Overall, we can confirm what others report : nice room, green garden, friendly people, free laundry service and taxy service (but relatively expensive). So far so good, however in the last morning we had to leave early for a safari and our driver came...

I was only in Kampala for a couple of days and had a perfect.y pleasant stay in the Banda Inns. The staff is very kind and the service very good and prompt. Breakfast very nice and the kitchen makes a wonderful salad for lunch /dinner. I would recommend Banda Inns to anyone.

I stayed in Banda Inns for close to three weeks, and I absolutely enjoyed my stay. You just can't go wrong with that price. The location is safe and well-connected to the rest of the city, and not too far from anything (unless you are stuck in traffic going out of town on a Friday night, then you are truly...

Staying at Banda Inns for three weeks was a truly wonderful experience. Steven and his wife Asteria, the innkeepers, were welcoming and helpful at all times. The service was great (I LOVED breakfast), the place was always clean, and the location was ideal. This particular suburb is safe, friendly, and close to all. The accommodations are quite modest, but for...

Having worked for months and traveled widely in Uganda, I have no reservations stating unequivocally that Banda Inns is easily the most comfortable, best-value accommodation I know of in the entire country. And Steven and his family, your hosts, are the ideal innkeepers in every way. Steven heroically organized a last-minute room (and airport pickup) for me via email from...

Came to Banda Inns enroute for Gulu, from being picked up from the airport the staff were welcoming and friendly. Lovely breakfasts, and plenty of it. Though work is being done to improve the facilities the noise wasn't to intrusive. Really hope to return soon.
