This was our first hotel in Uganda and we spent 2 nights here. The hotel itself is nice, the garden area is a very welcome retreat in the heart of a busy city, we were able to just sit outside, relax and have a drink while reading. The rooms are basic, but clean, and comfortable. It was noisy at night, but I suppose that is to be expected of a hotel right in the city. The restaurant has a large menu, though a lot of the items were not available, though that might have been simply a result of traveling during COVID. Everything we ate was delicious ! both dinner and breakfast. The staff at the restaurant was very nice, though I would not say the same of the staff at reception, they were nice, but seemed to need a bit of training in just asking guests if we needed help when we approach, we always had to seek them out. When we first checked in, it almost felt like the lady was filling in for someone and didn't really know what she needed to do. At the restaurant, our waiter, whose name I can't recall was great, he also was the one that bruh us drinks in the garden the next day and served our breakfast The coffee was one of the best we had in Uganda!

I loved the size of the room, how clean it was, friendly staff and beautiful gardens all near the heart of busy Kampala. There is no lift but one member of staff helped me take my luggage up upon my arrival and down at the time of my departure. There is a restaurant and they bring food to your room if requested.

I really enjoyed my stay at Nyumabi Hotel. The staff was super nice and helpful, the room clean and nice, good water pressure and the food was good. It is 10-15 minutes uber ride away from almost anything. Definitely recommend it.

We were not impressed with reviews of branded hotels in Kampala, and stumbled upon the Nyumbani. The hotel is clean, the staff wonderful, and the food good. Access to downtown Kampala is easy, as is access to roads leading far away. We felt safe, always comfortable, and well treated. This was true value for money. The waiters Joseph and Geoffrey were resourceful and charming. There just isn't a better introduction to Uganda!
