I definitely try to get a few nights at the Speke when passing through Kampala. An old colonial hotel that some may say is tired but most see as having great charm. The hotel is not perfect but the atmosphere is excellent and this is not London or New York after all. The rooms are comfortable and clean. Bathrooms are nice and clean. Food is good. Pizza was excellent on the patio and the Indian restaurant on site is very good. Would agree about the noise from the bar and I would definitely try to avoid a room overlooking this area unless you are planning on being up late anyway. Definitely a very active site for prostitutes at night but generally well turned out and not aggressive. A very easy walk to the market and other areas of the city.
