The Shangrila Hotel Kampala is not a much ado hotel, but does serve its purpose __ very affordable quick turnaround visit to Kampala. Located close to the CBD and other 5 star hotels it is very suitable for visitors that go to Kampala for a day or two business trip. You get the basics a fairly clean room, air-con, not-so-good...

We stayed here one night before being collected by our tour company. Basic facilities but clean and good breakfast in the small garden. Had a drink in the Kampala Club and supper at the Shanghai Chinese which I have to say was delicious and excellent value. Good central location, safe accomodation but lacking in charm and character. Suited our purpose.

Not wishing to spend $180+ per night (Sheraton et al), I happily spent several weeks here in 2013, having earlier tried various other hotels in the centre of town (including the cheaper but somewhat charmless nearby Mosa Court). It's like a dormy house within the precincts of the Kampala Club, with just 12 rooms on two floors, possibly conceived originally... More

This is a small hotel very centrally located in Kampala. Although the hotel itself has very limited facilities gusts can use the Kampala Club, which it shares the site with, this gives access to the club bar, pool anf fitness facilities. The only restaurant available is th Shanghai Chinese, exceptionally good value but a little monotonous after a couple of... More

Clean rooms though they have a "funny" smell - couldn't figure out what it was. It wasn't pleasant. On the first night I experienced a hard, springy mattress. The breakfast is very basic. Location-wise...It's in a good, secure part of town. Overall, I would recommend it if you are on a budget; don't care what food is served at the... More

As an overseas consultant and frequent visitor to East Africa, I was delighted to discover this hotel. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable with fast Internet connection from room and poolside. Rooms have been tastefully refurbished and are spotless. All the mod cons you would expect from an up market hotel but half the price, TV, minibar, hair dryer... More
