I have slept 3 nights in May 2014, when attending eLearning Africa International Conference. I found the quality of service and meals excellent. Staff is very polite and responsive. There is a hight degree of customer care. The Manager of the Hotel, Mr. Nimes Shrestha is a very good interesting man, always concerned whether customers desires are satisfied.

The only good thing about this hotel is the location. If you are travelling throughout Uganda, the taxi park and coach depot are only a 5/10 minute walk away. The rooms are basic, but what you would expect for $26 a night. Upon arriving to my room I came across cockroaches in the bathroom. Other than that, the room was... More

With limited choices in this price range the Tourist hotel is fun. A bit seedy, but it makes it more fun. The rooms are clean and the cleaning staff is very nice. For extra they will wash your clothes well. The Indian owners are characters. The restaurant is fun to have a castle beer and watch the scene. This hotel... More

I stayed before I leave for Mbale by bus. Its proximity to bus station and market is great. It's on the third floor, so you need to go up by stairs. I stayed single standard toward inner side.
