Originally for missionaires and patres you can also book as a private person a modest room for a reasonable price. Kampala is not a tourist town and everything is expensive. Therefore namirembe guest house is a good alternative to the overprized hotels downtown that are situated in unsafe areas. Namirembe is on top of a hill overlooking Kampala and is...

Over all I can not complain. While the property does need remodeling the good out weighed the bad. The rooms were spacious and clean. Netting was new and in good shape. I used the laundry service and it was exceptional. Pricing was great. The staff was eager to please. Breakfast was provided but I suggest you order from the kitchen....

Excellent location on top of the hill overlooking Kampala. The staff were outstanding and very helpful. The food was more than enough to satisfy. The pricing was very good. I only have fond memories of staying here. I stayed in a self contained room at the rear of the complex, had ensuite, ceiling fan, mosquito net, the bed was very...

Be prepared no alcohol served here so smuggle it in. You are liable to be joined at breakfast in the morning by one of the many pastors for prayers at your table..the cry of "what would Jesus do? Is heard quite often. Food is traditional Ugandan and rooms and facilities are just ok. The jungle drums are very efficient here,...

The rooms were large and had en-suites but the flat bed mattresses and stained/hard linen desperately need replacing. Basic maintenance of minor faults lacking. Food okay and view good. Broadband only available in rooms.

I think I've found my go-to place in Kampala. I came in early in the morning (like 5:00) from the airport, and it was great to find a clean, fresh room to rest up in before a busy afternoon and evening. Pretty and quiet. Great food. Decent price. The only downside was, I had lots of bags which they put...

Namirembe provided good facilities - clean room, decent facilities, wifi in the reception area and business centre (it didn't seem to work in my room). The food was good - nice to have a choice of African dishes. The really big plus was the spectacular view from the bedroom right across Kampala. One of the best views I've had from...
