I am from Uganda and have stayed in so many hotels in kampala while visiting.
But Metropole surely surpassed my expectations- the service was excellent on all fronts ,the room was great and the hotel staff , well,- you won't get better service in town.
I am recommending this hotel to all my friends in the diaspora- USA, Europe and even Africa.
Thank you Metropole

Metropole is near to the CBD while far enough to from the crazy Kampala city traffic; the nearby the Kampala Golf Course accords a quite seclusion that does not pinch the pocket;
rooms are decent; Free wifi - although signals are a bit weak, especially in the rooms on the 3rd floor;
good Thai restaurant and a relaxing sit-out restaurant with a view of the Golf course; amazingly the rooms have Cisco IP Phones!
a compact fitness center to work out the stress

This is a contemporary box hotel, possibly a 100 rooms, built within the last several years, apparantly in record time for one of the African Union conferences, with good international standard rooms, an ample, open lobby, a pleasant bar and terrace restuarant and an Asian Thai dominant attached restuarant. This is a business hotel and is favored by the expatriate business and NGO communities. Don't expect tourist buses or cultural shows. This is a clean, new, no nonsense hotel located in the Golf Course area of Kampala, just north of downtown. It's location is just down the hill from the Proteus Hotel and other popular expatriate preferred clubs, bars, and resturants. Its a short distance to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, or the Course View Towers, home to most of the international oil companies operating in Uganda. It has cable TV, wireless internet, and a good breakfast included in the room rate. I paid $100 per night, one of the prevailing corporate rates and I thought this was good value. I've stayed in some of the big international branded hotels in Kampala, and by comparison, this hotel was just fine for what it provides --- a good room, a clean and safe environment, with good food and nearby entertainment and night life for a good price. Kampala is a pleasant town with nice shopping and good food and very pleasant and approachable people. If you are here on business, this is the place to stay. If you want a busier big hotel experience where you can see the Ugandan elite meet and greet, the Sheraton is probably a better bet.

I stayed here for 2 night, really smal place, not much on the place. The food is really poor. The rooms are modernish, but are a little run down. Manager was friendly but the staff were horrible, not helpfull.
The place appears to be near a swamp or something because it had an odd smell around it on the day i was leaving.

No pool or frills, very basic place...

Room Tip: stay higher up away from the ground
