Our family stayed at Banda Inns for 4 nights over a week in January 2016. Steven and his wife made us feel very welcome. The property is in a quiet location, and is very homely. The rooms were clean and spacious, with ensuites and HOT showers. We LOVED the breakfasts on the balcony, which were the best we had in... More

I always stay at Banda when I'm traveling to Kampala for business. I feel so comfortable and relaxed here. Steven and Asteria's family and staff are wonderful. When I was sick they made me this potent ginger tea that cured my tummy overnight.

Steve and Asteria are the perfect hosts. Recommended by a friend and so glad I found this B&B gem in the Muyenga region of Kampala. The B&B offers quietness yet minutes from a hive of restaurants in Tank Hill. The room was spacious and ensuite. The breakfast is lovely - fruit, cereal, toast and cooked options, together with fresh fruit... More

I recently stayed in Banda Inns on a work trip. Steven, Asteria, Henry and the rest of the staff were so kind and accommodating - I'll definitely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone travelling to Kampala. I'm a vegan too, and I have to say the breakfast provided was the highlight of my day! Great spot.

Banda Inns is a small, friendly B&B in Muyenga, a residential area not too far from central Kampala. I'd stay here on every future visit if they're not fully booked—which they often are. Great value. Pros: The hospitality is outstanding; Steven and Asteria are fantastic hosts who go above and beyond to offer the best possible experience. During our stay,... More

Great location with plenty of good restaurants within walkable distance. Service was great, they will even do your laundry gratis! Good breakfast included, other meals can be arranged for a price. Very relaxed atmosphere, love hanging on the balcony or by a bonfire at night. My go to place to stay every time I am in Kampala.

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!!
