With traffic as bad as it's gotten in Kampala and housing as expensive as it is, Prestige provides a relatively affordable downtown alternative. The location is convenient to most downtown destinations (you can even walk - it can be faster than public transport), spacious rooms (two toilets in a single!), comfy chairs and beds with nets, and a fairly well equipped kitchen (but no kitchen towel or dishwashing supplies provided). The friendly manager even let me keep stuff in the room while I went upcountry for several days and let me check out late. It's not really quiet, as there are car lots and karaoke all around and the road can get busy. Earplugs did the trick for sleeping comfortably, though.
Wifi is included but can be on and off (go to Piato restaurant down the street for fast, free wifi). The view is fantastic from higher floors. There's an elevator, but it's also on and off and could be more conveniently located. The pool looks inviting but smelled a bit like sewage, so you might do better to resist temptation (though I took the plunge and came out fine). I'd still stay there again. They're building a restaurant to include breakfast in the rate, so look for that soon.
