My 5/6th stay at Cassia was as wonderful as the 1st.. Greeted with open arms, fine food, super fast wifi and excellent staff/management looking after all our needs.. Would highly recommend as the best place to stay in Kampala.. Views that cannot be matched and a relaxed atmosphere a little out from the hustle and bustle of downtown Kampala.. Same...

After a busy days rafting in Jinga last week, we arrived at Cassia completely exhausted. I'm happy to say check-in was hassle-free and we were even treated to a refreshing glass of passion fruit juice while waiting to be shown to our room. The room itself was spacious, clean and maintained excellently on a daily basis. In total we spent...

Cassia Lodge Kampala, a place I fell in love with. Beautifull view over Victoria Lake, big rooms, staff very friendly, honest food, good service at the pool, and all information needed to do trips all over Uganda. The owner and his wife are so inviting, that you feel at home in an instant. We will certainly be going back, thanks...

You won't find a better view in the whole of Kampala. Cassia Lodge is a welcoming oasis in this city which can be overwhelming at times - it is not central, but well worth the trip. Ideal if you want to stay in Kampala, but not really in Kampala. Staff is very friendly, also the hotel is well known so...

We arrived from the USA after midnight. I thought I must have read the wrong reviews from trip advisor when I arrived! It is a very moderately decorated hotel. You may as well lay on the tile floor as sleep in the bed, it is so hard. The mosquito nets are almost useless as there is a big gap between...

We take every review of Cassia Lodge very seriously. Therefore we spoke to three guests who spent that same night at Cassia. No one has heard the dogs that you managed to count in the middle of the night. Honestly, its the first time since we opened Cassia -6 years ago- that we are confronted with such a complaint. And...

You'll pay a higher price for the amazing view from the hotel pool and hotel restaurant (and your room if you have one on the upper deck), but it's worth it for a night or two. Here a mix of locals on a getaway and expats on vacation or visit mix. This is a get away... not a convenient base...
