We started and ended our stay in Uganda at Cassia Lodge. It's a nice and quiet place to acclimatize to Africa before starting a roundtrip. I still remember the breathtaking view from the terrace overlooking the Victoria Lake and the outskirts of Kampala. At night, we enjoyed the dinner at the terrace. It's a delicious mix of European and African... More

Stayed here again for work. The view remains great-Lake Victoria and the hills/town. Service was better than the last time i was here...Keep that up! WiFi was disappointing though..please fix that. At the restaurant, try the Catch of the day-whole fish deep fried and served with fries. Quite tasty!

Our tour company booked this hotel for us. Situated on top of a hill, it boasts a spectacular view of Murchison bay of Lake Victoria. The staff is friendly and well trained. The room is spacious and clean. We had two rooms: a twin room downstairs and a double room upstairs. The double bed is a bit small, but the... More

I stayed a few lovely days at the Cassia Lodge, located on almost the top of the Buziga Hill, and I can't get enough from the amazing view over Lake Victoria and Kampala Town. Wether you're on your room terrace or at the restaurant deck. Dining there in the evening with the city lights is an experience. Also the service... More

We stayed here for one night at the beginning of our tour of Uganda. The hotel is high up, overlooking the lovely Victoria lake. Room are a good size, and clean. Beds were comfy, with mosquito nets. Toiletries supplied. At the time we were there, there was some sort of conference going on, which had loud music and it was... More

I had a lovely 3- day stay at Cassia Lodge. Situated almost on top of a hill in Kampala, the 270 degree view over Lake Victoria is amazing and all rooms have the view. Lunches and dinners are excellent prepared, try the nile perch freshly caught from the lake, I went twice for it. Staff are extremely helpful and friendly,... More

This gem...With some of the best views of Kampala East and Lake Victoria, is a lovers paradise. Nestled on Buziga Hill, it has excellent staff, delicious food and is perhaps Kampala's class "A" HIDEOUT. It's a must to check out the deck view upstairs...

So if you don't want to stay in the fancy business or conference hotels in the cities, so looking for somewhere a little bit... More

I would like to thank the client for his appreciation of the location, the unique view, the rooms, the cleanlinees. Two thinks were disappointing him. The day of his departure he could not stay a bit longer in the room. That's normally no problem at Cassia. But our dear client came with his request very late!!! Our hotel was fully... More
