This hotel doesn't look fancy and one can't really compare it to a U.S. hotel. However, the staff is amazing and super friendly. The rooms are clean and comfortable. I had a standing fan in my room to make the environment comfortable during the hot/ humid rainy season. Mosquito nets are provided for each bed. The showers/toilets were very clean... More

I have stayed here many times in both the single and double rooms, and have found the place to be secure. The best and safest budget option in this part of town. Rooms can be hot, and downtown location results in some noise at night. The staff will bring you a working fan if your room does not have one.

Not much more to say, it's just ok. The value would be much better if breakfast were included, but it's not. The location is the best part. The shower was hot. The mattresses, sheets and fans need to be replaced. If your are just in town a night or two it will be fine, but otherwise you will want to... More

Great location in Central Kampala with good restaurants and bars on the same street. Staff were all friendly and helpful. Room was a decent size with very clean shared bathrooms and decent hot showers. Good value for money and would stay again.

One of the cheapest and cleanest accommodations in Kampala. Rooms are clean with mosquito nets, including fan but still hot at night. Little noisy, but what do you want for such a cheap room? Restaurant was good, although if you order eggs + toast, the toast arrives 10 minutes later than the egg... Reception was pretty rude and unfriendly, but... More

I spent my first weekend in Kampala here, it is a nice hotel in the middle of town. The staff was friendly and the rooms were simple and clean. There was also a restaurant in the building that seemed nice.

The title says it all. Located right across from the National Theater and lots of good food options. Short walk to city center area. Rooms very simple with shared bathrooms. Seemed very clean and quiet. I stay here a lot when through Kampala.

Stayed for one night. Good central location close to many buses to Nairobi. Room was adequate and not too noisy. Shared bathroom had good amount of hot water and were clean. Restaurant downstairs was still open when I arrived at 8pm but was out of beef, chicken sandwich and chips was standard.

Located right in the centre of Kampala with banks, restaurants, shopping centres all within a 5 minute walk. Staff are very friendly but the restaurant is a bit slow but there's plenty of other eating options along the street. The twin and triple rooms are the nicest, I think they include rooms 120-124.

We stayed at New City Annex when visiting Kampala and whilst it isn't pretty it is a great base. The rooms are affordable and clean, the showers warm and the beer cold. Very near to the malls and some good restaurants.
