I liked to day at Africana, staff are friendly and helpful. The health centre is very good and super well equipped ! They also have the best steam room ever. Ask the local user how to bring up the temperature!! The hotel was nice and the breakfast good.

Have stayed here 3 weeks annually for 3 years and have truly appreciated great service (room comfort, food, conference facilities and good attentive staff). There are more modern hotel chains in Kampala to select, however I have felt right at home at the Africana and (obviously) one good experience lead to another and another. The hotel staff is extremely responsive... More

Good hotel. It can go far of they het themselves organized to identify good staff from the lazy ones. Some of them are very dedicated and try their best; some are extremely lazy and unaware of their responsibilities. Breakfast was quite good with various options. Rooms are spacious and well equipped. It is the irresponsibility of some staff results in... More

Was there in July for a friends wedding reception but the food was plain, not much to write about. The staff are helpful though. The rooms are spacious and clean enough, so that is a plus. The hotel is close to Centenary park, which has several bars, so if you like your night sleep, that will be abit difficult. The... More

Our biggest disappointment was that the pool was under renovation! We were there for my husband's business so didn't pick this hotel. We were very surprised by the contrast in pricing if you book from a site like booking.com etc vs the hotel site. My sister was traveling with us & she booked her own room online while we were...

Superb Hotel situated at the centre of the Kampala city with excellent view and a good place to relax. I have attended a lot of workshops here and I wonder how they handle these big events because the place is ever busy with meetings and conferences. The halls are clean and neatly arranged and the staff are ready to guide... More

Renovations again! This seems to be something one simply cannot escape. Knocking and drilling throughout the day is followed by the hotel's night life during the evening. This is not a quiet business trip. The conference facilities were fair. Nothing to rave about. Lunch was average - worth noting is that you will only be offered one piece of chicken... More
