Best hotel in Kampala. Fantastic staff, always immediately helpful. Home away from home. Nice rooms, great location but the staff are the highlight - friendly, welcoming, efficient and facilitating.

Excellent hotel
Very nice hotel. Room was in perfect condition, including the bathroom. All the necessary toiletries were provided as well as hot beverages . Only wish that the room had a fridge . Internet worked perfectly but have to factor that the hotel has minimal occupancy . Will definitely stay here again .

10/10 Exceptional

I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel. I did not know that it was a new hotel (opened only a few months ago). Everything was to a high standard. The food and service was great too. It was on sale on hotels.com and I believe that I got a four star experience for a three star price!

DECEPCIONANTE
El precio que tiene este hotel es altísimo para lo que realmente es el hotel. Acabados de las habitaciones malas, aire acondicionado con mucho ruido, la música de los pasillos a un nivel alto a las 2am donde parece que estés en una discoteca... Para nada recomendable Experiencia decepcionante.
