this guest house sits above the city of Kampala, next to the Cathedral. We experienced wonderful hospitality and the rooms are clean and comfortable but basic, Its position is unrivaled. Great place for a quiet drink in the evening after a hectic day in this fast growing capital, wonderful simple breakfast, in our experience always say yes when offered the... More

"A million dollar view of Kampala" is the slogan for Namirembe Guest House, perched on a leafy hill above the dust and heat of the city. It is a wonderful view too, in addition to service, rooms and food that are superb value for money. If you want somewhere safe, comfortable and friendly, and aren't bothered by western 5* frills,...

Nice and clean rooms, fantastic view, very friendly staff. Lovely to have breakfast (very good buffet) on the terrace, enjoying the view over Kampala and some bird watching too! Would come back any time.

Rooms are clean. Not well set up for the traveller that needs to work at a laptop. It is nonetheless good value. The food is average but they try hard to please. The view over Kampala is great, just a pity that Kampala is not more picturesque. Highly recommended for the budget traveller. Reasonable wifi at the restaurant.

I stayed at the guest house for two weeks. The view of the city is great. The staff was awesome!! Toepesta, Diana and Jorem were my favorite staff of the hotel. They were friendly they have great smiles and care very much for the people. The breakfast is included in the price of the night. Order a Spanish omelette with... More

Stayed here many times. A Christian guest house with great staff. Its an oasis from the madness of Kampala and has the ability to provide all meals. Its out of central Kampala so may not suit if your looking to be in the heart of things. The rooms are on the basic style, but have western toilets, showers, bed nets,... More

Cheap, clean and safe accommodation. Meals come included, which is Ugandan Cuisine in a buffet style and happens at the same time each day. Breakfast is standard, you can ask for specific things, such as omelet etc or 'do it yourself' toast and choices of cereal. It is a large complex, which is mostly used for schools, travellers and/or volunteers.... More

Namirembe Guest House is a very reasonably priced hotel. It has a great view of kampala, because it's located on the top of a hill. This was the last hotel that was stayed at in Uganda as we were wrapping up our 2 week mission trip. The staff was very friendly and the rooms were comfortable, but not fancy. We... More

For the price in a capital city this is not a place to stay if you are wanting night life. The view of Kampala is excellent. The location is next to the Anglican Cathedral and as a guesthouse it is not a hotel so comparisons with such are unfair. Staff are friendly. Meals are limited to buffet on some nights... More
