It was nice. Would be much more better if they serve weekend breakfast in the same way as the weekdays. Bathroom was very clean, too.

Solid three star with little improvements needed.
Nice property. Quiet. Need to have own transport or be willing to walk and catch a motorcycle taxi. Service at breakfast and lunch was a little lacking. Noise between rooms was bad. I woke up at 5am two days because of the snoring in the room next to me. One balcony is for two rooms so they are not private. Solid three star.

Not recommended-Unreliable booking
When I got to Dolphin suites I was told that they were fully booked and would move me to another hotel of similar quality. The hotel they booked me into did not even serve breakfast .

I don't know how it is possible this property had such a good rating. overwhelming smell of urine, small bed, not clean, noisy

Very Impressed :-)
I have stayed at 7 different 3 star hotels in Kampala and this is the first hotel that I would go back to. The meals were delicious and staff were so friendly and accommodating. They specially prepared eggs and bacon for breakfast (upon my request) and it was exactly how I like it and at no extra charge (could have buffet as well). They can put a refrigerator in your room on request. The rooms are refurbished and very clean and comfortable. There is plenty of hot water and the air conditioner works well. The wifi speed is great, too. The surrounding gardens are lovely and make you feel like your miles away from the bustling city, yet your only minutes from shops, restaurants and attractions. I would definitely recommend this hotel and will be staying there again very soon.
