I think I've found my go-to place in Kampala. I came in early in the morning (like 5:00) from the airport, and it was great to find a clean, fresh room to rest up in before a busy afternoon and evening. Pretty and quiet. Great food. Decent price. The only downside was, I had lots of bags which they put... More

Namirembe provided good facilities - clean room, decent facilities, wifi in the reception area and business centre (it didn't seem to work in my room). The food was good - nice to have a choice of African dishes. The really big plus was the spectacular view from the bedroom right across Kampala. One of the best views I've had from... More

My wife and I were traveling to Uganda for the first time and NGH played a huge role. Airport pickup? Check. Safe and secure compound? Check. Clean and tidy room with comfortable beds, amazing housekeeping staff, running hot water and a balcony view that never got old? Check. We stayed at NGH for 3 weeks and I'll never forget how... More

The simple room (in the old wing) was the right price for our family. Nothing fancy, but it was clean and the hot shower worked. The fan kept us cool. The buffet dinner and breakfast were good, with great service from the staff! We checked out the cathedral next door - I would recommend walking over there, it's beautiful!

Buffet dinner was excellent. Great view of the city (if you're on the right side of the hotel, or while eating dinner). Our team only spent one night but it would be a good base for any team working in Kampala.

I stayed at the Namirembe Guest House recently. The location was good. I had a wonderful city view from my room. The only real problems I had with my room were the ants and roaches. I must admit, I hate them both, and was afraid of them getting in my luggage. On my third night of battling this issue, I... More

"A million dollar view of Kampala" is the slogan for Namirembe Guest House, perched on a leafy hill above the dust and heat of the city. It is a wonderful view too, in addition to service, rooms and food that are superb value for money. If you want somewhere safe, comfortable and friendly, and aren't bothered by western 5* frills,...

Nice and clean rooms, fantastic view, very friendly staff. Lovely to have breakfast (very good buffet) on the terrace, enjoying the view over Kampala and some bird watching too! Would come back any time.
