From when I arrived at Hotel Sojovalo, January 13 to January 20th 2017, the entire staff went out of their way to make me feel welcome. They assisted me in even using their own phones and computers. The rooms are kept extremely clean and the hotel was very safe. The staff was warm and caring. As this was my first...

I stayed at the hotel for two nights, the staffs were friendly, the hotel is in the heart of Kampala. Nice rooms, weak wi-fi though. The breakfast was fine, since i was leaving very early in the morning the chef managed to prepare the breakfast on time.

Big rooms equals small aircon. Heat guaranteed. Shower pressure practically nil. Poor location. Bar menu price different from real. After all these issues only $15/day discount. Last day of the stay approx $1500 cash in different currencies missing. Total disaster. Never again

I stayed at Hotel Sojovalo in November 2015 whilst visiting Kampala for work. I hadn't been to the city before, and as such didn't really know where I was locating myself. Unfortunately - despite the attentive front desk staff - the hotel was located in a poor location for what I required, and while the room was certainly spacious, it...

This is the worst experience I've ever had from a hotel. The second they found out I was American they started over charging me for EVERYTHING! They tried charging me $30 US dollars to wash 5 articles of clothing. Not only that, but as soon as I walked in the door they asked for a completely different price than is...

This hotel is not in the centre of town, but this is handy because it escapes the worst of the traffic which clogs up the centre and makes car travel a time-consuming business. If you want to get around by car, this is a good location. The staff were really good and attended to any problems quickly and efficiently. For...

I stayed for 5 nights at the hotel and believe me, I haven't come across such an exceptional level of service and very nice, clean and well managed hotel. The room was exactly as I had wished. The staff are very friendly and they go the extra mile to ensure your stay is comfortable.

2.0 / 5Fair "Very disappointing." We had to switch rooms twice. Not only that but the rate on Hotels.com that is advertised for full board is not what they give you at the hotel. When we got there the 1st night they confirmed it was full board. The following morning we were told that Hotel.com got it wrong and they...

Unfortunately the hotel is built next to main road which is almost constantly packed with boda bodas, buses, trucks or cars. The neighborhood could be a little bit better and wi-fi more reachable. Apart from these three less positive points everything was great.. All the staff was very positive and helpful with any questions in regard to advices in city...

For the price you pay for the room, you get a lot of value here. There is a very nice buffet style breakfast that is included. Also, the rooms are very nice with nice touches such as robes to wear and big fluffy towels. We were able to walk from the hotel to the center of the city no problem....
