The hotel is located right downtown near the central market. A little bit noisy but very convenient to access the airport or main arteries. Rooms are decent, not new but clean. We appreciate above all the staff very professional and helpful. The restaurant has a good buffet for dinner and breakfast. It is not a 4 star hotel, but a... More

The staff, the owner and his family are very nice and friendly. The hotel has been renovated and expanded for the last two years. The breakfast is nice but needs a bit creativity... More

Holiday express hotel was the last place we stayed, for one night, before we left Uganda. It had pretty nice rooms (definitely nicer than any other hotel we stayed at in Uganda), good staff who were helpful and knowledgeable and friendly. The restaurant wasn't able to serve several items on their menu, but the food we did manage to order... More

I stayed two nights at the Holiday Express Hotel and was very happy with my stay there. It was well located in Kampala and not too expensive. I had arranged airport pick-up with the hotel, and even after two flight cancellations/delays (and many last minute emails to the hotel) they still had a driver waiting for me when I finally... More

Comfortable rooms (beds now with moquito nets), free wifi, friendly staff and a decent restaurant. Come prepared with ear plugs as the only reasonably quiet time is between 3am and 7am. A decent sleep can be had though if you're not a light sleeper. Also come with small change as the staff don't appreciate paying for cold drinks with large... More
