We read the few reviews about Hotel Diplomate and were unsure about whether or not to stay here so we went a looked at a couple of the rooms as the hotel we were already staying at was nearby. We stayed in a room that cost around $35 US and were really happy with it - it had a little balcony with a view, it was clean with a mosquito net. The only bad aspect was the hot water in the shower - a little dodgy but we just went without hot water which was absolutely fine. The staff were really friendly and a generous breakfast was included. The best part to this hotel is that it feels more African than a lot of the hotels, it's just on the edge of the chaos of Kampala but close enough that you can walk to bars and restaurants (about 15minutes down the hill, a 2 min cab ride up the hill). We loved having breakfast looking over the city, or having a beer at the end of a hot day watching the sunset. Would definitely stay here again, were surprised that there were so few guests there at the time.
