We had a two day stay at the Ruch, deciding to stay there after reading such positive reviews. I am afraid we cannot gush much however. Yes, it is clean and the staff is pleasant, but the overall feel of the place is a bit depressing. They knew they were checking in a couple, but there was only 1 towel and only a light on one side of the bed that did not work properly. We spent $90 for a double "deluxe" -- and for that money, one expects more attention to details. The breakfast might be described as adequate at best. Returning to Kampala for a second stay a week later, we have checked into a different hotel, and for $30 more per night, the difference in service, amenities, and ambience is striking. Perhaps at a much lower price, the Ruch would be a bargain, but at its current price, we think that there is much work to be done.
