Great hotel, fabulous staff ( emmanuelle in Mammia Restaurant just great) it's relaxed, unpretentious, great choice of 3 restaurants, but cool and sophisticated at the same time, without being stuffy...that rubs on the guests, you say hello to everyone, spontaneous chats...you order tea and cake for the afternoon, drinking on the terrace as Kampala goes by. The Kyhber pass restaurant is one of the best Indian restaurants I've every tasted ( I lived in Bradford, UK, for years and thought they had the best ) .
The rock Garden bar, is loud and brash and lost of fun, but like every western businessmen bar attracts ladies of adventure, this is Africa everyone, your polite, no thanks and no worries, no hassle, no pressure....sit and enjoy.....great value for money, your not cut off from an African experience like the big hotels. This is intimate, a real old fashioned colonial style hotel with a tea terrace and fab food and staff.....come again, yes.

Room Tip: rooms away from rock garden end......if you need total silence to sleep

I have stayed at several hotels in Kampala, and overall Speke is great value and one I return to time and time again. It can be noisy but has city centre character and great restaurants - an Italian and Khyber pass (Indian). Helpful and friendly staff. Rooms vary - some are better than others.

Room Tip: First floor rooms at the front

Speke Hotel , is the best hotel for the business travellers around the center of the town and saves a loads of times and serves as a center of business point.

I have always stayed in speke for the last 5 times of my visit to KAMPALA.

This time , it was quite different , I met this guy Mr Abdul Lateef Chaaku. , what an hospitable person , irrespective of him being in a different department , he took full care of needs and wants.. amazing person and speke hotel is gifted to have a talented person like him.

Whoeva goes to speke , please find this guy. he is normally in BAR division.

By the time I left , we have become buddies.

Very good atmosfera and colonian style... You feel like Mr Speke is going to show up any moment.
Nice simple rooms With balcony and view.
It is recommended to have an experience and feel the time when Mr. Speke was here to discover the origin of the Nile
