Organized a workshop for about 30 participants in May 2014. Rooms have plenty of space. Conference hall curtains need to be replaced as it was not possible to make the room darker for a good powerpoint display on a projector. Brewed coffee took forever to be prepared (to stick to your time, ask for instant coffee and not for brewed... More

Stayed two weeks here and would not recommend it. Nice pool and friendly staff, but the rooms and property are not well maintained. During our stay the toilet ran out of water on three occasions - the longest time was for over a day. We had to push to replace a broken light bulb, they ran out of tonic, lemonade... More

This hotel is an unpretentious place in a very quiet part of the city with a very nice well kept swimming pool and a surprisingly well equipped fitness center on the second floor; the treadmills overlook a swampy area with ibis, cranes and occasionally a monkey coming out to look for a handout. The staff was very friendly and helpful... More

Do you like Malaria? If so... then you would love this room! I can't believe that they are charging $160 + for this room! The most disappointing factor about this room is that it is situated in front of a SWAMP! Yes an African Swamp- that is full of Malaria carrying mosquitoes! We couldn't sleep in this room on most...

Visited Kampala on a client request and was disappointed with the choice of hotel. Thankfully I got into the hotel late into the night and checked out the next morning. The place is at the end of a lonely lane, a bit creepy in the night, its dark and the rooms are a maze spread out vast and wide. Food... More

We stayed here for about 2 weeks . Located in the affluent area of town .The ambience was excellent . Nicely furnished rooms with balcony and great views of swimming pool area . Good variety of meals at the restaurant . We had the self catering option too , which was great . I highly recommend this place .

Royal Suites ticked all the boxes for me. Clean, sizeable rooms, excellent food, excellent service. The swimming pool and gym facilities came with the room, and as I was there for work mostly I enjoyed being able to start my day with a workout/swim. The rooms were not only beautiful but very well-fitted, with the option (and equipment therefore) to... More

For having being seduced by the quality of the rooms and by the information that "parties are organized inside the ball room and it doesn't disturb the guests", I have selected Royal Suites as a base for a mid term assignement in Kampala. But it was a mistake... Every day, the music is way too loud in the garden which... More
