I have stayed at this hotel years before, and it was much better than my recent visit. The price was high for the value and cleanliness of the property. Hallways were dirty, rooms were not clean...but the worst ws the bed...I have slept on bamboo huts in Thailand more comfortable than the bed. In all honesty I think it was... More

The hotel is centrally located, and the staff were very nice. However, the hotel is being renovated, which means that even on a Sunday it's noisy. The room I stayed in - 8th floor - was dingy, with grey-stained bathroom, inventory-marked furniture, and pretty ineffective air con. Satellite TV so poorly tuned only a couple of channels could be watched.... More

The place is great, fantastic rooms, awesome swimmingpool, fitnesscenter, nice food and the staff are great. BUT - next door is some sort of an open discoteque playing extremely loud music - so if your room is faced to the wrong side (with an awesome view of Kampala) you should not expect much quiet sleep - even on the 10th...

First of all : hotels in Kampala are expensive, compared with European cities, and Africana isn't an exception. Although, you might get a good price if you stay there for a while, like I did. I stayed the first 2 weeks of May 2015 and just got back home, all memories fresh in mind. * staff : SUPER ! Almost... More

Two buildings, a three- and eight-story building; the rooms are similar in both. Nothing fancy but clean, contemporary furnishings with a desk, flat screen TVs, and a small seating area, hardwood floors, tile baths. Be sure to check the functionality of electrical outlets, AC, wifi strength, refrigerator, water pressure, safe etc. before accepting the room as we found some of... More

Hotel Africana has good space for holding events and conferences. I recommend them mainly for functions. Food is fairly good. The location is good and environment is calm. Several events can take place at the same time

I stayed in a room in the hotel's new wing and i must say it is super cool! Very spacious and properly furnished. Excellent wifi. I Never got to see the old wing so cant comment on that. The health centre is well equipped and functional. Breakfast has wide variety and i especially loved the highly nutritional freshly squeezed fruit... More
