The rooms are clean and large. The breakfast is good and varied. The staff are friendly and helpful. All of these things are lovely, but I come on business and for business travel, one element will trump all others: internet. The internet at the hotel during the 11 nights I stayed here was extremely variable. It was slow and weak... More

We have stayed here several times and have absolutely no complaints. In fact, it is a wonderful place to stay. The rooms are large, the staff is "over the top" accommodating, and they bend over backwards to make your stay enjoyable. The bellmen are efficient and helpful. The breakfast is awesome and the other meals are just as good. They... More

Second time staying at the Protea hotel and both times stay was quite lovely. The rooms are fairly large with comfortable beds and clean bathrooms. The Breakfast has a little bit of everything and dinner at restaurant was also very good. Pick room away from the bar as it may get quite noisy in the evening. I asked to have... More

For a hotel with international nominations and rewards, I really expected more from an overall experience. The accommodation was very good in terms of the room and facilities, but the food was very average. We stayed there for 2 weeks and by day four I was dreading to go to the restaurant. There is no indication for dinner if it... More

Although we only stayed for two nights, the hotel staff was accommodating, friendly and very helpful. The rooms are spacious, clean and bathroom well organised. Restaurant is good and food variety what you would expect from a 4 star hotel. Gym was neat and organised with complimentary water. Free wi-fi for all devices provided.

In today's business world excellent internet connections are a must. The quality of the internet at the Protea Hotel Kampala is VERY bad. It is very slow and sending documents via E-mail becomes a nighmare. If you do not need the internet, the hotel is fine.

I stayed at the Protea in Kampala for a week during a work trip. The rooms were comfortable and clean. The gym is great (pretty big for a hotel gym). The restaurant food was pretty good (I don't eat meat, so my review is limited). Also, I liked that the hotel wasn't in the thick of downtown. Instead, it was... More

I spent five nights at Protea Hotel in Kampala recently. The hotel was a pleasant surprise. My room was well equiped. Clean and well maintained. High quality internet access. Excellent service level in reception. Staff was pleasant and responded quickly. The control system to get into the hotel was at a standard level in Uganda, high safety level. People manning... More

On my first visit to kampala I stayed here thinking it to be 4/5 star...... room and all are decent/good staff is courteous but not very high standard. The most irritating part was that they used to make us get down of our car twice to check before we could enter the lobby. I am with security n all but... More
