Speke pizzeria Nice pizzeria located at the Speke hotel. The food is good, the prices are mid range. Both the pizza and the other courses taste good. There's a security checkpoint to get in. Armed guards are walking around due to the terror threats against foreigners and hotels/malls where foreigners tend to go. There are taxis outside, ask for Charles... More

My experience was better overall this time. I had no problems with their wifi nor with the water in the shower. Other aspects of my review still apply. I really enjoy the number of restaurants that surround the hotel. The food is generally very good. The local clam chowder was excellent.

This is a great place. Full of old world charm, well managed and friendly. If you are expecting typical resort type accommodation, go to one of the international hotels. This is different; a bit more boutique. Rooms are pleasant and roomy, breakfast is fine. I would definitely recommend this as something a bit different.

I stayed at the Speke on a business trip recently and I was quite disappointed by the quality of what you get for the price you pay. It is set in a nice building in central Kampala, and it is a shame to see how they are letting it crumble instead of fixing it up. The room was spacious, not... More

Was here due to work related meetings at the venue. Very spacious rooms and they have a big number of rooms with different rates. Its actually like a maze if you think about finding your room/a friends room :-) The food was good and tasty. I loved the fact that Lake Victoria was just within the hotel environment. Great space...
