Hotel is located on one of the busiest roads in Kampala. Taxis honking through the night, people screaming, BUT if you come prepared (ear plugs) you can have a good stay here if you consider the money you pay. (approx 25$ double). In that price range it is hard to find something decent in Kampala. But this place is clean,... More

The hotel is self is extremely good value. The location can't get any better and staff are very friendly. The only issue is the noise outside the hotel. It faces an extremely busy street and the noise stayed all night which made it very hard to get any sleep.

Also the receptionists were not friendly. but the rooms are quite nice,... More

I stayed 4 nights and for the price it was ok. The personell is very friendly and ready to help. The breakfast is included and is tasty and generous so that you can consider it a full meal. There is wi-fi. The hotel is very centrally located, try to book a room not facing the main street but on the... More

The rooms (and we tried two) were pretty basic and clean enough. The room rate also included a decent breakfast. We started off with a room with a view that faced the park across the street, which was picturesque, but the nearby night clubs down the street were so loud until 4:00 AM that we didn't get any sleep. We... More

i liked everything, it is clean, cheap, nice city view and nice hospitality with nice breakfast but the breakfast is the same every morning if you are staying for more than a day, and the city noise which comes from the non stop taxi, bodaboda and other vehicle movements, as well the clubs down there so if you are ok...

It looks scruffy from the outside but the self contained rooms are nice spacious and very clean. Good laundry service, good wifi and good breakfast (included). Internet cafe just one floor down if you need a computer. If you mind noise be careful when you select your room, some of them are extremely noisy. I'd avoid the restaurant, dark place... More

Ideally situated hotel, right by Constitution Square and the bus station. Cheap, clean and an excellent breakfast of fresh fruit, omelette, bread and tea. I didn't quite believe some of the reviews about the noise before arriving, but they are absolutely correct. Rooms at the back (i.e. not on Constitution Square side) are unbelievably noisy. Even with windows shut and... More
