We slept her for one night. Easy to find because there are enough signs to the hotel. The car is parked on a secured place with a guard. The room has a double bed with mosquito net. A small tv, fridge en fan on this room. A big bathroom with bad/shower etc. The room was clean. The mattress was not... More

I loved this little hotel, perched up on one of Kampala's scenic hillsides! It took a bit to find it and I am glad we were driving a 4WD Rav, but was well worth time and effort! The complex is made up of a few small buildings on several levels up the side of the hill-excellent for privacy and the... More

It could be such a nice hotel... the building, the look BUT... first of all the reception they want to make it look artsy but it's a waist of space with a lot of junk. Go for the standard rooms as they are more interesting as the deluxe room... They charge for an extra towel? They charge for an extra... More

The New Madagascar is just like a home where there are few rooms in just a quite and pleasant place where you can easily see the lake Victoria!. the rooms are very natural with African touch! the little problem is the laundry services! the travelers are advised to take enough clothes with them otherwise...

This is an acceptable home away from home with most of the luxuries of a home yet in a rustic affordable way. There is good food, hot strong shower, piano and a general sense of serenity. Its adequate for a tourist who enjoys some good scenery and quiet. Is a bit far from town and jammed for one who might... More

I stayed at the hotel as i was moving around in Kampala. the location of the hotel was very quiet and comforting despite that it was undergoing some renovation. The owners were a really helpful and kind couple who also helped me a great deal in arranging my trip to Jinja and elsewhere in Uganda. The staff is average though... More

Our worst hotel during our stay in Kampala. Poor beds, very slow service during breakfast time (and we were the only guests). Room was oke clean. Would not recommend as googling the place we found that hotal is build illegally and may need to be demolished.

I stayed there for one night and let me say its like home away from home.The only disadvantage is that its soo far from Kamplala city and i missed all my business appointments. The staff have no uniform so it felt abit funny...I had fish and chips for dinner and it was wonderful.The breakfast was average but better.

As one of the other reviewers pointed out, service is definitely lacking here. However, the rooms are very nice. We went off-season, so it was very quiet. Food is nothing to write home about, but you are only 15-20 minutes away from downtown Kampala. The only issue is getting to and from this place. The hotel taxi driver was not... More

The location of the hotel is superb with the view second to none, the staff are nice and friendly, but the problems are, there seems to be a lack of training and organizing skills given to them, having breakfast turned out to be a long and frustrating experience with it taking up to 40 minutes for everything to arrive, and...
