Dolphin Suites is a secure hotel close to Kampala City Centre. The Gardens are well kept and there is a nice outdoor swimming pool on the grounds. I'd recommend you ask for a 1st or 2nd floor room as the ground floor may be a bit noisy if the pool or restaurant is busy. Good view from the balcony where... More

We had a reservation for 4 nights to stay at Dolphin from February 8-12. Before leaving Rwanda for Entebbe we called the hotel to arrange a car. This is what happened: The call begins and I'm informed that yes a car can be arranged, but the Indian gentleman taking my call instantly who know I was. "You booked through Expedia,... More

I spent 4 days at the Dolphin Suites while on work travel in June 2103. I found the hotel well managed, with very friendly and helpful staff, nice clean pool and pool area (although pool is quite small) and decent food. Started off with a room on the ground floor next to the pool but it lacked privacy so moved... More

We stayed at Dolphin Suites for three nights and then returned for one more. It was a pleasant stay, rooms were clean with fantastic showers.Staff were friendly, the food was really nice, and the pool was big although pretty deep (the shallow end is 5ft). It can be noisy with the TV waking us up early, and staff and management... More

Been using Dolphin Suites for the gym and pool as we live nearby. The pool is small but pretty and clean, and the gym is pretty well equipped - although could do with a rowing machine. The restaurant is nice and the breakfasts are pretty good, although the hymns blaring out on a Sunday are quite distracting when trying to... More

I recently travelled to Uganda as part of a charity working with Kiddawalime school. I stopped at this hotel and thought it was very good. The staff was extremely friendly and carried my luggage and kept asking me if I needed anything. The maids were very friendly. Everyday I would find my clothes neatly folded and the room spotless!

Dolphin Suites is a quiet hotel in a business district of Kampala. Many international NGOs have offices nearby and the area feels very safe, even at night. The stay, which also included using the conference amenities, was mostly to my satisfaction. Wireless Internet has almost complete coverage of the hotel area and very good speed, considering. My room also had... More

Excellent small hotel outside city centre, very attentive staff, lovely open dining room/bar and good smallish pool. Room spotlessly clean, newly decorated with excellent shower. Food only average & unfortunately three tvs in dining area were nearly always on, sometimes with different channels & could only be turned down if other guests agreed. Laundry prices high, so I didn't bother.
