I traveled to Kenya and Uganda through a school function and when we stayed here, the service was fantastic and so friendly! Every day, they greet us with bright smiles and hellos! They even prepared such great meals and the accommodations were perfect! They have this outside area in the back which features a beautiful resting/meeting area and every morning,... More

Emmaus in on Tank Hill in Muyenga, a spot which used to be the hub of expat-land in Kampala (and still has a fair number of us running about). The guest house is nice--large, clean, offers a decent free breakfast including cereal, eggs to order and toast. And the wifi is free and surprisingly strong. But at $20 a night... More

We stayed at Emmaus on two occasions during our trip to Uganda. There was a problem with our booking they weren't expecting us! Thankfully they had rooms to accommodate us. Tip: make sure you book direct with Emmaus rather than via Fields of Life admin! The manager & staff were all extremely friendly and accommodating. They served us well! They... More

I have stayed in the Emmaus Guest a number of times since 2007. Nice quiet location, great staff and always enjoy my stay. This is a beautiful location in the hills of Kampala, you can walk to lake Victoria and enjoy the wonder view. There is a lot of space in the gardens, tv room, games and nice balcony to... More

My stay was peaceful. Staff where very attentive and warm. Food was incredible. Grounds are great for relaxing in with an authentic gazebo for shade. Great Italian restaurant opposite called Cafe Roma - they do a great pizza! Location is excellent. Will definitely be back!

A team of us were working mainly in other parts of Uganda but stayed in Emmaus during our few days in Kampala. Staff are very friendly and the food is fantastic. Warm and welcoming atmosphere. Wifi was great for keeping in contact with friends and family back home. Beautiful garden and outdoor space. Definitely recommend!!

The service at Emmaus is great. Facilities are very good. Rooms are clean. Linens are clean. Food is great. I have stayed here alone (white female) and felt completely safe 24/7. Anything I needed, the staff was always happy to help. Great rates and great location too.

I went to Kampala for the first time and my family and I stayed at the Emmaus house. The Staff are so friendly and the garden was beautiful. The staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome. There's no other place I'd rather stay in Kampala. I hope to visit again soon!

I have stayed here when visiting Kampala - great value for money in a quieter location that is not too far from the bustle of Central Kampala. Staff are friendly and let me use the WiFi although not sure this is standard. Food is adequate and there is a nice restful garden with distant views of Lake Victoria
