Great place to stay, tranquil environment in busy Kampala. Particularly the lush gardens are beautiful. Even though I heard the building was relatively new, it looks and feels historic. Great breakfast and dinner too, although staff could be slightly more attentive. In the end I must however also note that it is outrageously expensive for what you get. I my view a prime example of how the hotel market in several African cities still feels distorted.

Dear Matthijs,

Thank you for choosing The Emin Pasha Hotel as your preferred stay during your visit in Kampala. We appreciate that you have taken your time to give as feedback which is well received. The Place has a historic side of its history because it was the first boutique hotel in Kampala and a couple of high profile personalities and Royalties have slept at this hotel. Significantly this has attracted a certain niche of guest to patronize the hotel hence the prices being not averagely compared around.However we will work to add value on the price being paid by our customers.

We hope that you will still visit us next time.

Regards,
Odawa

This was a nice hotel that was recommended by locals we know. Rooms, food and facilities were very nice. The major problem that can't be over looked was there was no hot water in the shower, even after making complaints.

I spent the last 3 days at the Emir Pasha Hotel. The room was very comfortable with a door leading to the garden, from where all sorts of bird voices can be heard. The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful. The restaurant offers an impressive range of food and drinks. One can sit down in various places of the tropical garden and relax. One criticism: the staff in the restaurant and kitchen is working very slowly. It's best to give them timelines ...

We were taken to the restaurant for dinner by a local person. I had wonderful vegetarian pasta, and my husband had whole telapia which was out of this world. The setting and ambiance were just lovely.

One of the reviewers on here left a very unhelpful comment about the food - it simply isn't true - the pasta reminds me of Italy. The hotel is wonderful, the staff make it extra special. I held a Board meeting here and nothing was too much trouble. If you are looking to hold a wedding even better. It's one of those rare special places that leaves a special place in your heart - go ahead and visit and be pleasantly surprised. From January 2018, they will be making a few changes and hopefully adding a salon that caters for Africa and European hair and the latest nail techniques - one doesn't need to be a guest to enjoy their services. Thank you Emin Pasha - you made my life so much easier and I will be back!

Room Tip: The room with the bath was gorgeous
