I booked this on a recommendation of a colleague and it was lovely - it is set in its own grounds, it is quiet, the rooms are old fashioned and nice and big (bathrooms a bit small but perfectly OK) and the staff friendly. I stayed 5 nights and it was a very nice change from the chain hotels. Breakfast... More

Stayed at this hotel for one night before coming back from a tour through Uganda. Given the cost of the place it was nowhere near the standard we had encountered in other hotels. The location is good as central, gardens pretty and nice building, but under the cover it is poor. The food wasn't great, service was poor and the... More

This is hidden gem in Kampala with tons of potential to be the best place to stay. The rooms are lovely and are being carefully renovated and upgraded by the new (very friendly!) general manager, who has clearly set the hotel on the right path. The huge downside is the often very poor service in the restaurant and bar. I've... More

Coming here already for 7 years now, and experiencing some change of ownership and management, Emin Pasha is back-up at the standards where it has to be: a boutique hotel being an oasis in the hectic life of Kampala. I hope the owners have a long term vision and do not go for the quick win. New menu is excellent... More

We have stayed at the hotel 4 times in recent months. Returning due to its charms, style and calm atmosphere. During our recent stay, we were pleasantly surprised with a number of improvements put in place. The new GM has taken a proactive approach with attention to detail, and it shows. Staff are not only more attentive, but appear happier.... More

Our family stayed at Emin Pasha before heading to Bwindi National Park to trek gorillas. Food was OK. Setting very nice. Rooms were clean. Nothing over the top but no complaints either. Next stop, Cloud Mountain.

The place is located in peaceful neighborhood and therefore gives you a pleasant noise free stay. Their food is good and very good service. You expect a hotel with such price with bigger area to move around and better place in the rooms but everything is so small here. The room price and its size doesn't match though its clean... More

It's a good place to be except noice from srounding. Reception is average with food food. Prices are good and food is tasty. Location wise it's lovely and things are available at ease. I relaxed at this place and had a very good breakfast. People were helpful and things were clean.

A lovely small hotel in a converted colonial house. Lovely grounds and garden, a haven of peace and quiet in the centre of Kampala. Good food and friendly service. However, at $270 per night I do not expect to have to stand in the bath holding a shower attachment and AC was not very efficient. Room was small but cozy.... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for your input! It's funny as I made the very same remark about the showers as I live on property. However, you will be happy to know that I have personally designed a new shower unit for the rooms with "Bath Only". We are also making lots of other changes to our property and hope that... More

Stayed at the Emin Pasha in the third week of July 2014. It's a very nice small hotel with beautifully appointed rooms. Has its own outdoor swimming pool and the spa is great. Well located for business travelers, although there was a good mix of business people and tourists during my stay. Having previously stayed at Protea, Sheraton and Kabira... More
