We stayed here in between our gorilla & chimpanzee trekking (Oct 24 & Oct 29). Staff are friendly and courteous. Although they do not seem to communicate amongst each other. We agreed upon a late check out on Oct 30 (12pm instead of 10 am) and housekeeping still tried to come in the room at 915 am to clean the... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and found the location to be quite favourable for visiting some of Kampala's religious sights (mosques, churches), which was rather convenient. The room had tv (unfortunately the sports channel had only white noise) and fridge. The room was a good size, with telephone. WiFi worked but speeds were variable between good and tediously slow,...

I spend 2 night in this upmarket hotel and I should say Am looking forward to more nights here. Despite the unwelcoming Attitude at the reception, commonly within the small and medium hotel, here we were made to feel at home straight from the reception. The receptionist whom I have forgotten the name was very gentle and kind to us... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are located in the outskirts of the city, in Rubaga suburb. It is about 10 minutes drive out of the city centre. Get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and come to Sojovalo. Client service is of great importance to us. We have taken great care in selecting our staff. The Hotel has a highly qualified staff with knowledge on different aspects of hospitality. ... more   less
