“a very nice and friendly place”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

I spent 4 weeks at the Kolping House in spring 2013 doing research in Hoima. The overall atmosphere is friendly and relaxed, rooms are spacious and clean, with well-working hot showers. Sitting in the garden under a canopy reading the newspaper is a very fond memory I have.
I contacted the Kolping some time ahead of my trip via e-mail, and the answers always came immediately. Staff and management were very helpful and went out of their way to answer my questions and help me unravel the mysteries of daily life. They also helped me organize my subsequent trip to Kampala and stay in the Kolping Kampala.
Breakfast and dinner was delicious (at dinner I usually had the African buffet but you can also order à la carte). Yes, in the week ends the night club on Butiaba Road can be noisy but on the other side I really liked staying in the room nearest to the street as I really liked the atmosphere of privacy it offered. (If you are very noise-sensitive you might bring some earplugs just in case.)

Kolping House is recommendable. we stayed there in 2009-easter, i know this was some time back.....i thot it is only doing them justice and helping others go their way. We had a very pleasant stay. the staff were very professional, good food, clean large rooms,hot shower...we had a stopover on our way to lake albert safari lodge. this place is well worth the money spend. they can fix you an early breakfast on request. the only down point is its too close to the road and the noise but if you are lucky enough to get a room away from the road.......thats a pleasant night.

Room Tip: the back rooms are quieter

The Kolping House offered very good value for basic clean accommodation, helpful service, an open bar area with covered seating and tables under canopies in a grassy area, as well as a spacious conventional dining room. Beware the road can be noisy so choose a room as far away from it as possible. The bedroom had one of the best towels I have found anywhere ! As one has come to expect in this part of the world, the shower caused an exciting flood of the bathroom area, so that beautiful towel was much needed.
The food was quite acceptable and we both thought the stop over was exceptional value for money.

The Kolping House/Hotel in Hoima is pleasant, clean, with beautiful gardens, bright decorations and hot showers with lots of water! Meals are delicious. Very friendly and helpful staff. Pleasant surprise quite far from Entebbe/Kampala. Worth a stop.
