We stayed at hotel Africana with a group of 10 Australians in the lead up to our Ugandan wedding. It was a very comfortable stay, great central location for exploring Kampala and the substantial breakfasts, gym and pool lovely bonuses. The rooms were air conditioned and had reliable hot water.

Twenty to thirty years ago this hotel would have had few peers. Now it can best be described as disheveled. There are wires hanging from ceilings and other maintenance issues requiring attention in the hallways. My room had two lights out, chips in the furniture, a missing lock fixture, a somewhat unpleasant smell in the toilet, etc. The staff are... More

The staff helping to organise our seminar arrangements was very helpful, parking for participants was ample, staff at check-in and check-out very helpful, restaurant facilities adequate, rooms spacious, the arrangements for coffee/tea breaks were adequate - nothing to write...

This is my third visit within last three months - I came in as a guest and now am 'friends' with staff here. The staff go out of their way to make your stay comfortable. The taxi service is very efficient. Rooms on upper floors facing the car park are nice and quiet with a small balcony from which you... More

On that week-end (and no one told me in advance) there was a wedding around the pool, so by Saturday afternoon is was barely accessible because of the setting up, and on the following morning barely accessible too...
