While the rest of Hotel Africana is on the tired side, the rooms are beautifully furnished, spacious, clean and comfortable. There is a mosquito net curtain around the bed which gives a wonderful feel. The views are great, you can see right across Kampala and see the traffic jams in the morning and the city lights by night.
The only negatives at this hotel are noise and the food. Sound carries and if you are a light sleeper or are disturbed by noise, you may want to avoid it on Saturday night when the noise from nearby party spots will disturb. I was also a bit disappointed by the food which was below average and expensive.
However, right next door is Centenary Park which hosts 4-5 garden restaurants and I'd suggest travellers go there to eat because the options are good and you'll pay less than at the hotel.
The rooms, however, are the real sale point.
