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

This place is right in the heart of Kampala. We had room for one night from street side, and windows didn't block sound that much. 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

Loved this hotel. The price was accommodating for center of Kampala and location was right for me (a few blocks walking distance). Clean rooms, comfy enough bed, very friendly service. Restaurant stay open 24/7 food is great. Free internet, parking. The hotel staff were wonderful!

The hotel is centrally located in Kampala within the city and has access to most shopping locations and offices. Stayed here several times over 4 years on business trips to Uganda. The hotel is reasonably priced, has clean rooms and the staff are excellent and give good service. The food is excellent. Due to the location there is the normal... More

On first impressions this hotel seemed fine but after having our IPad and IPhone stolen from our room I would strongly advise to book somewhere else. Management were not helpful in investigating this problem once they were informed!! A very noisy location with street noise throughout the night. Bathrooms were not that clean and lights in bathroom not working. Shower... More

Well not too sure where to begin with my review.. I will say something positive but!! Hotel is in the central part of Kampala, so if your brave enough to tackle the crowds outside and browse the markets for sone shopping, also it was very cheap, so if your on a budget than great. However.... Myself and a friend stayed here... More
