This was my third stay at Banda Inns in three years. Each time I lived here for two or three weeks for business reasons, and I can truely say: This place is my home from home, and Steven and Asteria are the friendliest, most helpful and reliable hosts one can possibly imagine. As always, I enjoyed my breakfast on the... More

Travelled to Uganda for business and pleasure. Banda Inns is very well organised for the business traveller. Airport pick-up, cars with drivers for rent, renting mobile phones, organising a safari (pleasure side of the trip) and doing laundry. All for reasonable prices for an European. I am sure you could "go local" and organise transportation and a safari yourself, but... More

Banda Inns is fabulous. Nice rooms, great outdoor common area, good internet service, yummy breakfast included with the price of a room, quiet, off the beaten track and yet easily accessible to downtown Kampala. Staff and owners are great. Couldn't recommend it more. Try it!!

Everything about the Banda Inn was good, except for the lack of signage and difficulty finding it. Come to find out, the sign was covered by blooming plants which were beautiful. The staff is very helpful, kind, and the facilities are clean. The breakfast, especially the bacon, was excellent. We appreciated the helpful suggestions and free clothes washing. The place... More

and again, it was great! In 2012 I stayed at their place for three weeks and when I was planning my stay this year, there was no doubt about it that I wanted to come back to Banda Inns. Steven and Asteria are very welcoming and genuinely interested in their guests. The staff is very kind and trustworthy. They have... More

Relax. Enjoy. Absorbe. Socialize. We had the time of our life. A home away from home... ;-) Close 2 K'la, yet remarkably peaceful. A great hub if you want to explore what the Pearl of Africa has 2 offer. Hopefully we will be back soon. All the best to the hosts: Asteria&Tamale

I have just revisited Banda Inns. Last time I was here was 2 years ago. It is a lovely, clean, safe, friendly place to stay in Kampala - away from all the congestion of down town and a great place to retreat to. The gardens are still lovely and the breakfast still very good. The rooms are spacious and clean,... More

I stayed at Banda Inns on two occasions in March and it was lovely. I had two different rooms, the first was one of the larger upstairs rooms and the second was the smaller room downstairs by the spiral staircase. As a solo female traveller I thought this place was great, I had dinner on my second night there and... More

We loved our stay at Banda Inns. Our room was comfortable and quiet, with a hot shower and free wifi. Breakfast was delicious, and the staff even made it early for us one morning when we were leaving Kampala at 6:00 a.m. There's free laundry, which was an amazing perk. It's easy to get shared taxis heading into town from... More
