This hotel is set around a small swimming pool with garden. Rooms are clean (although small) and have well-functioning A/C, DSTV, wi-fi and hot water service. The food at the restaurant is very good. The location is ok as the hotel is in a quiet residential area on the top of a hill - not in the city centre though.

Dolphin Executive Suites - neither suites, nor executive, with very poorly trained and motivated staff. Rooms are small, belying the name. The extremely weak wifi suggests a poor understanding of what executives need when on a business trip. Room service is an interesting sequence of ordering more than once and then waiting to see whether food will turn up, and... More

It is not a place if a quiet environment suitable for business discussions is what you are looking for. It's noisy at all times with cigarette smoke coming from all directions - drugs inclusive. The meals too are terrible. It's not worth a penny

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
