“Homely Experience, Excellent Staff........”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2013

I stayed at Humura for 7 Nights and was won over by the nice staff. Next to the Golf Course and walking distance from various good restaurants & supermarkets. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Although there are no mosquitoes in the rooms but a nice mosquito net is set up every evening around your bed for a assured comfortable sleep. The menu has a limited choice but food is tasty. The jewel in the crown is the hotel staff. There are only 18 rooms in this hotel, so the staff knows each and every guest by name and room number thus attending to their specific needs fast and efficiently. They will make you feel very comfortable and special. Although i can name all the staff members but my special thanks to Shiva, Hilda and Olivia for making my stay pleasant...If looking for home away from home, then this is the right choice.

Pros: Everything else apart from the two cons below
Cons: Pool, although very clean (cleaned daily) is very small to lure you to swim; Buffet breakfast menu needs lots of improvement and variety

We were so pleasantly surprised when we arrived. The greeting was good, rooms were large, clean and comfortable and the AC was a treat. The bar area was great with comfy seating and breakfast had a huge variety including cooked breakfast, pastries and fruit. Excellent value for money and our experience here was much better than at speak which was far more expensive and nowhere near as luxurious or clean as humura.

I routinely travel 4 times a year to Kampala for work, and have had the pleasure of staying at Humura each time. The hotel is located in the northern part of the city, adjacent to the Golf Course and walking distance from Makerere University.

Rooms are clean and well-maintained, simple yet full of East African flair. Wi-fi is available in the rooms and on the property, and the speed/signal are usually consistent and very reliable.

The staff are always friendly and accommodating, and ready to help. The service is also very good, with buffet breakfast in the AM and decent lunch/dinner selections. The hotel caters to the business community, and routinely hosts conferences during the week. It is also a very popular place for wedding photography due to the beautifully landscaped grounds.

Overall, I highly recommend the hotel, as it has truly become a home away from home while I am in Kampala!

We recently stayed 4 nights at Humura Resorts and was enjoying it fantastically well. Clean, tidy and very friendly staff. Safe and secure hotel. Pool and gym very nice. Restaurant and bar was high class. Close to the city centre. We can only give good recommendations on this hotel.

I only stayed one night at Humura Resort but was pleased with the facility and the service. The room was very spacious. The indoor bar (I didn't get the opportunity to try the pool bar) and the open-air restaurant were both nice. Other reviewers here are correct - it is a peaceful location in the middle of Kampala. I was most pleased by the service. Case in point -- upon checkout, I accidentally left a suit that I was to wear at a Kampala wedding several days later. However, I did not realize that I forgot my suit until I was at my next accommodation - a safari lodge at Murchison Falls National Park. Once I contacted Humura Resort, they assured me that they would hold my suit until I returned to Kampala. They kept their word. I was able to pick up my suit upon my return to Kampala. My Ugandan friend told me that I was lucky - in most cases, I never would have seen my suit again. I would definitely stay here again.

Spent three nights at the Humara on a delegation trip to Uganda. Usually stays at the Sheraton, but Humara is smaller, friendlier and much more cosy.
Rooms are very nice and clean. Only minor setback is the free wifi that is a bit shaky at times, but it doesn't spoil the overall impression of a well run, very nice small and suitably luxurious hotel.
Will definitely be staying here again.
