Clean business-class hotel in central Kampala
Overall a very nice hotel in central Kampala, in a quiet neighborhood. Pricey, but less than some other business-class hotels in Kampala. Very spacious rooms, reasonably good wi-fi (worked for Skype voice, with only slight delays), very clean, good AC, with a decent gym/workout room. Breakfast and lunch buffets were fresh, varied, and mostly tasty, with good espresso drinks and custom omelettes at breakfast (and Bloody Mary's and champagne/mimosas included, for those who aren't there for work!). Fresh juices at all meals too. Staff is very attentive and helpful; check-in and check-out were efficient and organized. Slight drawbacks: Would have been great to have a pool, in Kampala at this price point Carpets are a bit worn, could use an update Exterior could also use a refresh Would have loved to have screens on the windows so they could be opened from dusk to dawn, as many hotels in Entebbe have

Comfortable and convenient. Needs a few upgrades.
I enjoyed my stay. It's clear that the hotel is aging. My room was huge, though. The internet was patchy, strong in the reception near the router, very weak in my room. Would be nice to get better coverage. However, all that being said, I will continue to go back. They treat me like family.

Solid business hotel
It was a nice visit. While the location is somewhat isolated, and walking places is tricky, it was a good stay.
