Exceeded My Expectations
My experience at the Urban by CityBlue was great on all fronts. I have visited other hotels in Kampala, and this hotel was noticeably better in every way. The rooms were more modern than other hotels, the wifi was much better, the food was excellent, the staff was kind and helpful and the shower was hot with good water pressure. The open area with the pool gave a relaxing atmosphere and was a great place to relax by the pool. I didn't swim because the pool was too close to the restaurant tables, but it added to the overall setting. The fitness center is quite small, so if you want to get a good workout, you will need to figure out some in-room options. Overall, I had a great experience and would highly recommend it. I am planning travel back to Kampala in a month, and I will be booking this hotel.

Greatly exceeded my expectations. New, very clean, with big rooms, fast internet, excellent showers and very nice restaurant. A great alternative for those who want all the modern amenities don't want to pay the Sheraton or Serena prices in Kampala!
