I had been staying in Rushere for 4 week sand needed a hotel to stay in for the night in Kampala before my flight back to the UK - I had been searching for hotels (using my very limited internet access in Rushere!) and came across Grand Global - I emailed to enquire about rooms and prices and had a very speedy response! Standard room was 100,000 ugandan shillings (approx £25) for the night - deluxe room was 130,000 but the only difference was a vaporiser instead of air conditioning and had a fridge so i opted for the standard. I wasn't expecting much but the room was immaculate - lovely marble flooring and big double bed with mosquito net included! Also digital TV and fan (both tv remote and fan had chinese symbols so had to experiment to use them!) - both a huge luxury compared to where I had been staying previously! All staff very friendly and had organised airport transfer via email prior to arrival (80,000 shillings - approx £20) - which was a big 7 seater taxi just for little old me! Enjoyed an evening meal at the restaurant - lots of veggie options which was a bonus! Met a lovely member of staff at the bar - offered for me to come to stay with him if I ever visit North Uganda and gave me his contact details! Only down side was a few mosquitos in the room (somehow didn't have any in Rushere!) - but think this was due to patio door being left slightly open before I arrived. Next morning there was a lavish breakfast offered which was delicious! Breads, jam, eggs, bacon, beans, cereals, fresh orange and apple juice, tea and coffee - would definitely stay again and highly recommend it, especially as was travelling alone so was a bit apprehensive but felt super safe and staff so friendly =)
