I have been staying in the hotel for the last four years during my business visits in Kampala. Rooms are big and the internet nowadays is excellent. 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

The beds very comfortable although a big high off the ground. Breakfast was plentiful and full of variety. The Hotel is located close to the White Mountain Highway the route to take to... More

Located in the heart of Kampala, middle-price hotel. we had some problems. No water in the Bathroom, we had to go to another room to have the shower. Staff is kind. They were very kind of keeping for 1 day, our luggage 10 days after our stay, when we came back to Kampala to take the plane at night.

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

I sleep well in noice and room had air conditioner so only complain is that in big double bed there's only one blanket to fight for. We left early next morning for post bus, and... 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
