Certificate of Excellence

Very clean and comfortable small place to stay. Owner and staff make the difference for a pleasant and hassle free stay. But you need transport to get around the city.

We spent two nights in Banda Inns and we liked it very much, lovely place, nice garden and the food is very good. Steven helped us to book the Gorilla trip and the trip to QE and all was perfect.

I spent a week in Banda Inns, and I can say I have truly enjoyed the stay. The entire place is very cosy and relaxed. There is good food - especially a fantastic breakfast - and the wonderful staff is very attentive and always looking out for your well-being. Kampala can be a busy city, and this is the perfect place to take a breath.

Banda Inns is a cosy place at Tank Hill in Kampala. Its a family driven business and has a homey feel to it. It is simple, but has everything you will need. The breakfast is nice with fruits, toast, different egg options and waffles. The staff is very nice and the rooms are clean. The owners are knowledgable about Kampala & Uganda and always willing to help. They also offer tours at fair prices.

Banda Inns is a nice place to stay for a few nights. The garden is an oasis - a great start into the day having your breakfast on the cozy terrace with a nice view into the nicely arranged garden. We enjoyed going for scrambled eggs and omelettes every morning and the staff was very nice. One day there was a darker wholegrain bread/toast, which was very delicious. The Internet is working perfectly. The rooms are okay, working for the hospitality industry myself I would renew/fix a few things, but to be honest I have expected less. After the first night we got a more comfortabel moscito net which was a very nice geste. What really was a pitty, is that it one day took ~3 hours until our room was cleaned, but the dustbin for example was not emptied, there was no toilet paper and the towels were forgotton. The fan in the room is very strong but also very loud. The furniture on the terrace could be renewed (the cushions) a little aswell. This are not big issues at all but could be avoided. If possible make sure that the Askari opens the door when you get back home at night.. depending on his mood the dog can be a really good watchdog ;).

Dear Kenegy

Thank you very much for your constructive feedback.

1. We pride ourselves with good housekeeping. It is highly regrettable you experienced slow and sub-standard cleaning during your stay. Banda Inns will revise it's housekeeping procedures and improve the staff training to make it consistent.

2. Banda Inns have different fan types mounted on the wall and for the table. We are aware that some of these fans are a bit too strong and will replace them within the shortest possible time.

3. Some of the furniture on the balcony has just been replaced, however Banda Inns will continue to replace the older furniture over the next few months.

My first stay at Banda Inns was peaceful and enjoyable. The staff are extremely friendly and efficient. Food was delicious. Atmosphere is a peaceful, green oasis just outside the city. Transportation and excursion arrangements were always reliable. Fast internet available throughout premises. The bonfire BBQ was fantastic!

Its a nice place to stay, not too far of the city. Easy to find.
Personnel is realy friendly. The food is average but the breakfast is ok
Rooms are for EU people a little bit outdated but for Uganda is a good and safe place to stay. Overall its a good place to stay.
Wireless works good.
We start living here in Uganda and we spent the weekends in Kampala. So Banda Inns could be the hotel for more stays.

Room Tip: Nice veranda on the first floor
