I stayed here for one night before setting off on a tour around Uganda. I arrived late and left after breakfast, so my review can not be all encompassing. What I can comment on is: The room - small but clean with ample hot water, flushing toilet and a good cooling fan Breakfast -Yum, great omelet cooked to order Staff... More

I could not fault this accommodation- the staff couldn't do enough for us. We had a team of 16, and without exception all commented on their sleep and the comfortable ness of Adonai House - a big thank you for all you did for us.

I stay at Adonai on almost every visit to Uganda and am never disappointed with the hospitality. The staff are welcoming and attentive to personal needs. From menu selection to assistance with special needs they offer superior service in a family like setting. The guest house is great base while in Kampala. Internet was a bit faster than my last...

We stayed at a number of places in Uganda and Adonai House was by far our favourite! Very secure, comfortable and with great on site meals, it made our stay very comfortable. Also, the internet was very fast, allowing us to upload our photos daily and keep our friends at home connected. One of the best parts is the common... More

This is the best guest house I have stayed at in the Kampala area! Comfortable rooms, good breakfast, and very friendly and accommodating staff. Last time we were here (November of 2013) the Internet was almost non-existant. We were assured that this time it was fixed, but it is still barely usable. If you need the Internet for business or...

This is a basic and simple guest house based not too far from the airport. It is basically a stop gap between adventure and airport, and due to its city location it maintains simple standards. Many people working for local charities use this as a base. Beds are singles in the main and covered in mosquito nets (something you'll get... More

We stayed at this property at the beginning and end of our Uganda trip. On arrival it was mid-night, yet the staff greeted us and showed us to our room. It was basic, but consisted of two single beds, with mosquito nets, and shower ensuite. After just 5 hours we were all back up and again the staff were there... More

I have stayed at Adonai since 2011 and always find it to be functional and clean. The atmosphere is "homey", meals are "home-cooked" and very good. Breakfast is quite good and included in the rate. The evening meal is extra and must be ordered in advance. Wifi is very good throughout. I think the rooms have a bit too much... More

Note that there are two Adonai Houses, 'Adonai 1' in Muyenga and 'Adonai 2' in Rubaga. Trip Advisor doesn't differentiate between them. I spent 5 nights at Adonai 1 and for the price they charge it was really excellent value. The owner and staff are very welcoming, the optional evening meals were great and the room was fine for the... More
