The hotel is located in the Center of Kampala. The breakfast is simple, but ok. We got a plate of fruites, egg and bread and coffee and Thea. The main disadvantage is the noise. The musquitonet was also not Long enough, we had a Gap of 10 cm.

The hotel is situated in the heart of Kampala and its 'CBD'. The place is good and cheep with a nice restaurant downstairs where its possible to get authentic Ugandan food. There is also a nice terrace in the sitting area of the hotel where is possible to admire Kampala hills. The place is so so noisy because the traffic... More

Hotel is located on one of the busiest roads in Kampala. Taxis honking through the night, people screaming, BUT if you come prepared (ear plugs) you can have a good stay here if you consider the money you pay. (approx 25$ double). In that price range it is hard to find something decent in Kampala. But this place is clean,... More

The hotel is self is extremely good value. The location can't get any better and staff are very friendly. The only issue is the noise outside the hotel. It faces an extremely busy street and the noise stayed all night which made it very hard to get any sleep.

I stayed 4 nights and for the price it was ok. The personell is very friendly and ready to help. The breakfast is included and is tasty and generous so that you can consider it a full meal. There is wi-fi. The hotel is very centrally located, try to book a room not facing the main street but on the... More

The rooms (and we tried two) were pretty basic and clean enough. The room rate also included a decent breakfast. We started off with a room with a view that faced the park across the street, which was picturesque, but the nearby night clubs down the street were so loud until 4:00 AM that we didn't get any sleep. We... More

It looks scruffy from the outside but the self contained rooms are nice spacious and very clean. Good laundry service, good wifi and good breakfast (included). Internet cafe just one floor down if you need a computer. If you mind noise be careful when you select your room, some of them are extremely noisy. I'd avoid the restaurant, dark place... More
