It was my Business visit to Kampala where I stayed in Speke Hotel. My experience with the atmosphere of Speke Hotel and their professional services was amazing. It was all tiring day at that Hot Climate city but After coming to the Hotel I feel very relaxed. Thank you very much for the wonderful service by Speke Hotel Personnel.

During my recent stay in Kampala I spent several days at the Speke Hotel and I was enchanted by the cosy atmosphere of the past of one of the oldest hotel in town, a real milestone in the history of East Africa. I rather suggest to stay in the comfortable rooms facing the Sheraton gardens, despite the noise of the... More

I stayed in this hotel for a week, to start the manager was super helpful. The workers were nice and always ready to help. I had little complains but nothing major. I like the location but I think the price can be lower. Overall I recommend the hotel to everybody.

At such a bargain cost as compared to hotels around it, I decided to stay at Speke Hotel for 2 nights. The hotel is okay and the room average - the floor is a let down though.. wooden-looking and I think it hadn't been polished for quite a while giving it a sort of an unkempt look. The breakfast had... More

To avoid this review from being a rant, I am simply going to say that this hotel must have been very good in the early to mid 1900s. There's something disturbing about naming a hotel and having a portrait of colonialists as a proud badge of this hotel in modern Uganda. The lobby, rooms and conference facilities leave a lot...
