The hotel is located right in the heart of Kampala city, next door to the golf course and a short walking distance to the shopping mall. the main down town shopping district is a short ("special") ride from the hotel. the hotel is what you would expect from any Protea hotel with the one great distinction being the size of the rooms, they are huge and have all the modern facilities a seasoned traveler would expect. Lacking is a swimming pool to refresh after baking on the hot and humid Ugandan sun. the hotel offers Wi Fi, a gym, a nice and quiet pub and a restaurant on the premises. the food and menu are great. the hotel staff is courteous although could do with a bit of sprucing up on certain world trends. unfortunately no travel desk was present so you had to plan your activities relying on friends and family and the trusty map. Great security, although very silly check points at the entrance and the guards could be a bit more courteous, almost as rude as the security staff at the airport. overall the hotel is great.
