Our recent trip to Uganda was very successful. We travel there every two years, and always stay at this hotel, because of the security and the safe food. We had some extremely nice wait staff in the restaurant, and the housekeeping staff was constantly working to keep everything clean and pleasant. The room was comfortable and fairly roomy, and on...

Stayed here for 4 nights in total and the hotel staff couldn't do more than enough. They were dedicated to please guests. Bit disappointed that the outside of my hotel room (room 55) had all the hotel washing hanging on the line...! Food was good, I had to buffet-type meals and all food was piping hot and there was a...

We travelled to Jinia for five or seven nights as part of a charity trip with my sixth form a pretty big group. Jinja isn't renowned for it's hotels which is understandable, we were greeted with a warm welcome and then shown to our rooms, very small with little space to relax into, bathroom was dreadful have to say a...

As others have mentioned, Jinja isn't really known for its nice hotels. That being said, I would definitely recommend this hotel. We stayed for almost 2 weeks while on a business trip. Rooms- the rooms vary quite a bit. My first room had a big 4 post bed with a mini fridge, and was pretty spacious. The bathroom, though, had... More

This is one of those hotels I would like to skewer in a review--a very tired, not-so-clean, small and poorly-designed room, an outright lie that there was (working) in-room internet (the internet was woeful in the whole place) and food that rhymes with "Nile." But I have yet to find a good hotel in Jinja, so I would have to... More

You'll get a hot shower, a good breakfast, and many normal hotel amenities. The rooms aren't that nice, are a bit old, but does the trick. I'm not sure how much it was (paid through our tour) - I'm guessing it was good value.

When I was looking for somewhere to celebrate a special birthday there was only one place to go. Jinja and the Nile. And for me that means staying at Sunset Hotel (this was my third visit). Are there more luxurious hotels in town? Probably. But we like its slightly shabby look. Everything works, it's clean, comfortable and secure. It feels... More

I was part of a school group about 18 of us including staff. We were fairly spread out but that didn't matter. Beds were fantastic with mosquito nets covering all the duvet etc. Bathroom wasn't great with cracks in the bath and tiles dirty was very hard for any relaxing wash to occur. Views were superb overlooking Jinga and the... More

I spent a weekend there, when we first arrived they couldn't find our reservation although they sent us a confirmation email but the manager was nice and he was able to get me an executive room with a very nice Nile view. The room itself is OK, it's not luxurious but it's clean and the furniture is also ok..given the... More
