15 minutes boda boda ride (3-4,000UGX) from downtown, with a very friendly staff, nice little garden to hang around, a restaurant. Having a parking lot is very convenient, and there are places for meetings.

The standard single rooms are simple but everything is clean and the staff is very friendly and accommodating. The location is quiet although it's only a 5 minute walk from a busy street with bars and restaurants. Try the Neil gold beer, our favourite.

My friend recommended Kenrock and I'm so glad I choose to stay here! It's a great, quiet and clean place to come back to after a hectic day out in Kampala. The staff are helpful and attentive and helped us plan our trips around the city. It's close to some lovely restaurants/bars and coffee shops as well. I extended my... More

My trip to the Hotel Kenrock was enjoyable. The staff is very kind and hospitable. The rooms were very clean and the service was good. They also have WiFi and a restaurant for your convenience. I would return again to the Hotel Kenrock for another visit and will recommend it to other travelers to Kampala.

I enjoyed my stay here. The food is tasty and the portions are very generous. The hotel is located very close to other amenities just down the hill. The rooms are clean. The one issue I had was the wi-fi which was switched off at night and switched back on in the morning. Work on the decor at the reception... More

I've stayed at Kenrock a couple times now, and it's always been a good experience. Although it's small, it's very clean, pretty, and well cared for. The staff is friendly and professional. Worth every shilling of the relatively low nightly rate. The location is good, too. There are several restaurants, a coffee shop, a small supermarket, and a craft shop... More

I enjoyed my experience at Hotel Kenrock. I stayed in Room 102 which was lovely, the balcony is big and nice, the bed is not too bad. I brought my own towel, but found theirs to be just okay. The water in the shower was hot, but not a lot of pressure. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. The... More

The place is clean and safe, and the staff were friendly. However I do not think that it merits the excessively glowing reviews other people have given it. When we stayed the manager suggested we could get a discount if we wrote a good review, so I suspect this has skewed the material on here.
