My first stay at Banda Inns was peaceful and enjoyable. The staff are extremely friendly and efficient. Food was delicious. Atmosphere is a peaceful, green oasis just outside the city. Transportation and excursion arrangements were always reliable. Fast internet available throughout premises. The bonfire BBQ was fantastic!

My work is in the Muyenga neighborhood of Kampala, which makes Banda Inns an ideal lodging. I visit Uganda 3-5 times a year now, spent a good part of 2007 in Mbarara and have enjoyed a good amount time in the country as a graduate student and now non-academic researcher. Banda Inns is home away from home with comfortable rooms,...

Banda Inns is located in a quiet location out of city centre, but still close to several restaurants and good connections to the centre. Rooms were good and clean. The thing that makes this place one of my all time favorites is the people who run this place. They really made us feel like home.

I arrived in Kampala without a hotel booking. A friend/colleague suggested going Banda Inns and I was happy I listened. The hotel is situated in Muyenga, Tank Hill. A place outside the busy centre but in an area where many NGOs reside. The costs are low esp. if you compare them to standard hotel rooms. I stayed at a room...

We've just come back from our family trip to Uganda, where we mainly stayed at Banda Inns. Steven and Asteria and the other staff working at Banda Inns made our stay very special. It was so nice being able to get to know Ugandans more personally than we would have managed in a larger hotel and we really appreciated this....
