Hotel conditon is ok but hotel ppl, I hesitate
I went there to meet a local girl. She would come and stay during the day but then went home before dark. Every day the front desk would give her a hard time about coming up to my room, every day I had to go down and confirm that it was ok for her to come to my room, everyday they copied her ID, it got soooo old and annoying, I felt like they hassled me and her. I complained to the front desk and the girl got grumpy with me, so I complained to managment. The manager was nice and did something about it. I had a reservation for two. And I was the only white man there.

I would stay here again if they decrease noise...
Was there three nights. They had a wedding or concert every day I was there that created some noise and there is construction going on the property of a new parking space, it was hard to get sleep there. This is not the first time I have stayed there and each time I go there is some kind of concert of construction that makes it hard to sleep. I don't like that about this place. However, the room is nice, the bed is not hard not soft, the safe is large enough for a small laptop, the cost for room service is small, the swimming pool is large but not always available because of the parties, the gym is better than most hotels in Uganda; dumbells, free weights, a few machines a small aerobic space.. Parking is limited but security to the parking is good.

Centrally located hotel in Kampala
Hotel is being renovated and so not operating at the present time at full capacity. The upgrades in the hotel will likely make it world class. At present, it shows signs of age.
