Clean rooms, great staff and good prices. WiFi was stable and worked in my room. The front desk is very accommodating and helpful. New management has done a great job with room renovations and a new menu. I will definitely be staying here in the future.

If you have to stay in this (noisy) part of Kampala this hotel is a good choice. The rooms in the back are quiet, service is good, rooms are spacious and clean with aircon. A good choice for bussiness trips

After staying in Sojovalo for 9 nights in January and February, I returned at the beginning of August. Staying there for the second time, I can say without a doubt that I was nicely surprised with the improvement they did in only six months. The management continues with renovations, staff is friendly and nice as it were during my first stay, service amazing, rooms are big and always clean. Their restaurant is open 24/7 and food is delicious no matter if you order at 4pm or 1am. Highly recommend.

Stayed here for 2 nights last week in Kampala to attend a function in the nearby royal Lubiri grounds. Very pleasant hotel to stay in. Lovely spacious room. Very welcoming and helpful staff especially Doreen who ran the show at night. Nearby traffic was not really a problem but if of concern you could always ask for a room furthest from the road.

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights to explore Kampala. The rooms were nice and spacious. The hotel staff was great, especially Doreen (the receptionist) who did everything to make our stay very pleasant and comfortable. I arrived very late at the hotel, and was very happy to see that the room service menu had many options and that I could still order food. I tried the Butter Chicken which was really nice. The location of the hotel was close to downtown and a few minutes walk to the Ghadafi Mosque. We walked one way to downtown (it is a 25-30 mins walk) and took an uber back. I would definitely recommend this hotel for everyone who wishes to explore the city of Kampala!
