The Mackinnon Suites, Kampala
The problem I faced was on day one, ac was not working and tap of wash basin was not working. On my complaint they were ready to change the room and they even changed my room but a day later they again asked me to change the room again which was very frustrating. The manager was not ready to understand my problem and said some one is already booked for that room, I stayed there for 3 more days but no didn't see anyone in that room. The manager promised me in the second time he made me move to a newer room that 4 People from his staff will help me. In packing, moving and unpacking, but to my surprise it was just one person so I had to do all thatand even had to move my bags from one room to another. When I asked him that he promised me 4 staff and no one turned but he had no answer and he just moved away. The good part is excellent location and good indian food. The chef is helpful. The hotel and room s are very clean. But in case you have to deal with the manager be careful, he is not the one who can be trusted and can change his statements anytime. They even charged us for taking print out. I don't know if they should or not. They have no business center, just one silly and slow computer in their office which after 3 requested was given to us for use..

Great but bring your repellent
My only issue was that I did not sleep because I was fighting with mosquitoes the whole night. No mosquito net. I would recommend you bring your own insect repellent because you may need it. Other than that the room is great. Customer service is good and breakfast was good too. I would stay again now that I know to bring my repellent.

overall, I had a nice stay.
The apartments are clean and in a great location. The AC wasn't working well on the first night but the service team was able to fix it the next day. Breakfast is plenty and with a good variety.

Needs some upkeep and improvement
I've stayed here 3 times and unfortunately the hotel needs some improvement, especially the bathrooms. Maybe its just bad luck, but each time I've stayed there has been a problem with the shower - either broken, or on this last stay there was no water at all. The room size is very good, and the 1 bedroom apartment layout is comfortable.

Nice, clean, roomy place
The front desk staff are wonderful. The rooms are modern and very spacious. I love the kitchenette. There are some things which could be improved (poor breakfast, poor menu in general at the restaurant) but overall a wonderful place that I will come back to often.
