I spent the night of 12th February in Protea Entebbe and was disappointed following the high expectations from the publicity I received prior to my visit. The people (staff) are impressive but the services, ranging from the food served to the the room service are wanting beyond measure. The Air Conditioner in the room is very noisy and WiFi signal...

I have the pleasure of staying in the Protea Hotel Entebbe quite regularly and it hasn't disappointed. Great food, great rooms, cold beer! TV and aircon always works and the staff is always friendly. Food and drink isnt pricey at all and I do recommend this to anyone visiting Entebbe. Also, just 5 minutes away from the airport makes this... More

My wife and I have not stayed at Protea but often stop for a meal or a drink. It has the best location to the airport of any hotel in Entebbe. Also the grounds are beautiful and if you want a relaxing drink or meal by the pool looking over Lake Victoria before one of those grueling international flights, we... More

I arrived in Entebbe to 38 degrees of heat. No jokes. The humidity was stifling. Thankfully the hotel is about 1 km from the airport and the airport shuttle was waiting for me, so I didn't have to endure a long hot journey. It was my first time in Entebbe so I didnt really know what to expect. The hotel... More

My earlier days were amazing considering the fact that it's open 24 hours, it was that safe, quiet, go-to place. I'd drive from work to experience the breeze and have a nice dinner but lately it simply feels like complacency. Service delays, amazing pool however the experience in the changing rooms can be improved. The drinks assortment can also be... More

The Protea Hotel in Entebbe is located 2kms from the airport on the banks of Lake Victoria. This is a perfect venue for a meeting with international guests who wish to avoid traffic and require easy access to the airport. The hotel is a combination of old and new with a very interesting design and layout of the building. The... More

I landed in Entebbe late on the 2nd of January, so didn’t reach the hotel until after midnight. The hotel is literally a 3 minute drive from the airport, so the location couldn’t be better. On arrival, the Protea reception staff were waiting with our booking and key cards ready to get settled in immediately. The porter brought our luggage... More

Has a beautiful view next to the water and the food is absolutely exquisite. I love the rooms since they are quite comfortable and the entire environment is breathe taking coz of the fresh breeze from the lake.

Stopped in here with colleagues for lunch on the way to the airport. Surprisingly pleasant location right on Lake Victoria and very, very close to Entebbe airport although surprisingly quiet - it helps that there are not all that many flights in and out of EBB. Food was delicious here, service was very good, particularly from Ruth who served our... More

I stayed in this hotel at the end of November for a conference. It's 5 minutes from the airport terminal and their gardens front right down to Lake Victoria. Firstly you wouldn't know you were so close to the airport, hardly any noise at all. The staff could not have been friendlier & more helpful. The facilities, pool, restaurants, meeting... More
