“An oasis amidst the chaos..”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2012

Since I was last here in the 90's, Kampala has grown immensely and with it the problems that come with the slow development of infrastructure. Although the hotels have immensely improved and this small hotel serves as a true oasis amongst the hustle and bustle of Kampala. Its rooms are large, brick flooring (am allergic to carpets), tasteful African decor and staff that are so helpful and friendly. The food is acceptable although the cook has the tendency to overfly the eggs.. but thats cool. I would stay here again if I had the opportunity of returning.

Room Tip: Make sure you book the rooms 16 or 19 as they are strategically located to everything...

Stayed a week at this hotel. The rooms were kept clean. Even after my run when I tracked in the mud...The hotel is just minutes away from central Kampala. The gals at the front were very friendly and good at arranging a cab whenever I needed it.
There were construction upgrades going on at the lower level; however, the staff made arrangements so there was minimal interruption to the ambiance. The chocolate croissants and passion fruit juice every morning were great. I would add a single packet of sugar to the juice and it was perfect! And for those new to Eastern Africa...have a Stoney Tangawizi! I love Stoney!

Room Tip: Ask for the rooms near the wifi routers.

Staff are excellent, the grounds are well-maintained and the rooms are very comfortable.
The only negative was service during meals--mainly that it took a long time to get our food--but that seems to be the norm everywhere in Uganda. Other than that, I would highly recommend Humura!

Our team was on a research assignment in Uganda for 14 days, and Humura Resort was like a home away from home. The staff was very welcoming, the food was delicious, and the rooms were up to US/UK standards with regard to amenities, comfort, and aesthetics. We stayed in two other hotels during our time in Uganda, but neither were even close to Humura.

Thanks for the great hospitality (especially the chocolate croissants).

Room Tip: Look for room 18 - closer to WiFi

This is the second time that I stayed at Humura resorts and I was very pleased. The two weeks I spent there were really fabulous, everything was excellent. The rooms are spacious and clean. The service is really good and the staff is professional and friendly. The Wi-Fi was always working and the connection is very fast. The food at the restaurant is good and the food is quite good with a large menu to choose from. Although the hotel is quite central, its unique atmosphere and quietness makes it perfect for those who want to escape and get away from it all.

We stayed for three days at Humura Resorts in Kampala and found it very pleasant. The staff was very helpful and pleasant. The accomodations were styled nicely and very functional, plumbing was great, bed very comfortable, views very nice.

Room Tip: I think they are pretty much the same.

Humura was recommended by work colleagues who routinely stay here for work/research related trips to Kampala, and I was not disappointed. The Humura staff are exceptionally friendly and accomodating, making for a comfortable experience. We were here for one week for work and felt at home. The rooms are very spacious and kept very clean and tidy. There are bednets provided, though there were actually very few mosquitos on the property. We ate breakfast at the hotel restaraunt each day and found it satisfying. The staff make fresh eggs in the style you request, and there are fresh fruit, toast, croissants, muffins, and sausage available. The hotel has a nice garden/lounge area with outdoor seating which makes for a good place to have a drink and unwind after work. There is a gym with fairly new looking equipment, though I didn't have a chance to take advantage of this amenity. We ate dinner at the hotel several times and the food was good, though the selection can be variable with many items on the menu not available. Despite this, I was able to find vegetarian cuisine that was appetizing. The internet access can be spotty at times, but was usually availalble and we had good signal in the common areas of the hotel. Overall, I would recommend this hotel as a clean, convenient, and friendly place. It provided a nice stress-free atmosphere, and the staff really do seem to work to be accomodating which makes all the difference. This was my first time here, but would plan to stay here again for my future business trips.
