Stayed here plently of times, each time it gets worse! It seems the South Africans have left the Hotel to the Ugandans to Manage. Hence the service standards have dropped. The room price also keeps going upwards each month.
Internet is free but you need to wait for a few mins to load one page, poor hotel!! Rooms are clean and nice with good channels. But besides that the Hotel needs to be re-vamped. It seems they do not care for their vistors anymore as they are busy all the time, as Uganda does not have good hotels hence do not expect much.
Avoid eating at this Hotel for lunch or dinner if you can, its expensive and bad. A few mins outside the hotel by walking you can get a number of 5 star resturants. If you want a place to sleep and then go for work, its the right place but hanging around the lobby or resturant or bar, you can find better places in Uganda to do that.
