Good hotel with a decent standard accommodation. Staff is friendly and rooms are okay. One major issue is you usually lose cable TV and internet whenever it rains for a while. The hotel is close to a very good Italian restaurant "Mediterraneo" as well as within a walking distance of an Iranian restaurant "pardis" and down the street from an... More

I stayed here November 2014, Metropole is situated near most places in Kampala, it is clean and the rooms are, cozy, spacious, well lit and aired. It is near the road so the traffic can be heard from the room. Wifi is present but slow. The breakfast is excellent with nice variety. other meals are honestly not that great. The... More

My wife and I have stayed overnight at The Metropole a number of times over the past five years. In each case we have stayed for one or two nights while in Kampala during or at the end of charitable work elsewhere in Uganda. It is well located and modern and a good place to spend a relaxing and refreshing... More

I stayed at Metropole from 17th Feb - 8th March 2013. Its a pretty decent hotel with large rooms and very comfortable beds. The wifi connection is good, though you have to come out of your room and access it from the lounge/restaurant area due to weak signals in the room. The complimentary breakfast spread is good and offers you... More

My husband and I stayed there for one night when we first arrived in Uganda. The staff booked us two separate rooms because they didn't think we were a couple (our nationalities are different). The bed was nice and comfortable, but there was no mosquito net. In the bathroom, there was no door or a shower curtain so the floor... More

The hotel is a bit weary but fine. The rooms are large and the beds conformtable though one side is ontoa busy road. The shower and bathroom is very tired and the AC is half-hearted. Basically it needs some investment. BUt the staff are very friendly and helpful and the food is good. ENjoyed my stay and would go back.

I stayed there with a friend,but i regretted staying, Staff looked surprised, they kept on asking me which room number, i slept in, I think they don't believe that we Africans can also afford such nice places. When i came down for breakfast, they kept looking at me as if am a stranger, such lousy staff.........................

The Metropole is a good value hotel - central location, very clean, good service and spacious rooms. The wifi is a tad inconsistent in terms of speed and reliability but there is good access throughout the hotel. The rooms could do with slightly better maintenance of fittings and fixtures but overall they are fine. The food is also good.

If you are interested in golf, this is a good choice. For others, the location is a bit far from the centre so you can get caught up in traffic. I have stayed in three different rooms. Lots of good things - pleasant staff, spacious rooms, large and very comfortable beds with good bed linen, wide range of stations on... More
