    The hotel service was very good. The road is busy in the front. The back room was nice and quiet insulated from road noise. The indian restaurant in front was very good!

    All around clean, nice, and hospitable!
    We enjoyed our 3 days, two nights at Fairway Hotel in Kampala. It was at the end of our two week trip in Uganda and Fairway offered a relaxing and comfortable room/atmosphere to wind down from 12 days of traveling around the country, as well as a convenient location to quickly get to many major areas of central Kampala, including malls, restaurants, and craft markets. We enjoyed our breakfast buffet each morning and REALLY enjoyed the option for room service at night, taking advantage of this for our dinner on the night of arrival since we were very tired after a full day of rafting in Jinja and an almost 3 hour trip back to Kampala on a bus. The hotel has two in house restuarants that can both provide room service. The second night we ordered a repeat of our dessert from the night before, even after going out for dinner, because we enjoyed the chocolate brownie sundae so much. Lastly, we felt that the guest services were very good quality, as everyone treated us with great kindness and understanding, even with extra requests such as storing our bags for 6 hours after our checkout (before we left for the airport at 5pm), using the pool during the day after our checkout, and others. We also each enjoyed a spa treatment at the Spa within the hotel courtyard, my wife a pedicure and myself a swedish massage, both at good prices. Very thankful for this good quality, clean, AC included room for our last two days.

    Deteriorated historic hotel
    The Fairway Hotel is an historic hotel that has been a central player in Kampala life for decades. The best part of the hotel is the orridor display of the hotel's history! However, the hotel's best years were long ago. The hotel is in desperate need of a complete refurbishment. Everything is rundown, poorly maintained, or inoperative. The rooms and dining room are dingy but clean. The AC and wifi worked marginally; bathrooms are dated and there was no hot water. When I complained upon departure they informed me that I should have called them the night before so they could turn on the central water heater! The breakfast was below average. The pool is large however, there is no food or drink service, few loungers, and towels available only if the attendant happens to be on duty. This is not a comfortable hotel, but if you care only about a sense of Uganda history and are willing to stay in a deteriorated hotel to experience it, then this is the place for you.

    Only stay in the Executive Rooms
    The basic rooms are terrible and very overpriced. The bathroom is from 40 years ago and the room is falling apart. I know Kampala is expensive for hotels but the basic rooms are very old and loud. Because the noise from the construction and restaurants was so bad and the bed was so uncomfortable, I moved to an executive room for $50 more per night. The executive room was great. In regards to other facilities, the gym is abysmal with equipment that is 20 years old and only cardio equipment is very old exercise bikes. The pool is mediocre at best and the spa is definitely in need of an upgrade. The high points are the nice garden and the breakfast is decent.
