“Clean room with good view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

We stayed here just for a night before leaving for Bwindi. Reached late night and the staff was helpful to check us in and carry our luggage to the room. The room was clean, nicely appointed, had shampoo, body wash, etc. in the bathroom. The bed was comfortable. The view from the room was nice. The breakfast could have more options and could have been better. The coffee was very good though.

We stayed in Cassia Lodge for three full days and nights, after being in Lira for weeks.
It was a very pleassant stay.
Very good and clean room, good staf, nice service.
A fabulous view over lake Victoria and the city of Kampala.
The nice swimmingpool in which you can also enjoy the view.
And we enjoyed the excellent food so much!!! Every day we've been eating so much and so good.

We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to anyone who's coming to Kampala!!

I was staying in Sheraton in Kampala and had to move to Cassia Lodge family run hotel business, did not expect to find so idealic place in Kampala, its location is perfect and you one can just wish for
I stayed in Cassia Lodge for 6 nights and must admit I put on some weight..every single meal was so delicious and you just can't resist not to cleaned up the plate :)
Every single employee is so friendly but genuine friendly and you can feel when they smile is a real smile not a smile to extract a tips out of your pocket
The owners, Madam Els and her husband Mr Johan will make your stay so welcomed that you wish not to leave the place for many months..
I would recommend Cassia Lodge to any travaler who whishes to have a memorable brake in Kampala in any sence of the word

I stayed 14 days in Cassia Lodge. It was an ideal location near Kampala city. The Hotel has a great view of Lake Victoria especially at night when you see all the lights of Kampala. The rooms of the hotel are very nice and clean. There is also a pool with an amazing view. The food in Cassia Lodge is very good and more than that. people come all over Kampala tot eat in the restaurant and with the view of Lake Victoria at night it’s the best combination for a good meal. The staff is very professional and friendly! I definitely recommend this hotel!

We spent some days in Kampala in between going on a safari and trekking in the Rwenzoris. Staying at Cassia Lodge was like an oasis in an otherwise fairly challenging holiday-programme. The staff was helpful and friendly, the rooms nice and clean, the view over the city and the lake is great, the breakfasts and the food in the hotel-restaurant was nice. I hope to come back some time!

Great view of Lake Victoria, Relaxing environment, quiet. Food was great. Rooms are just ok. I was there with a group and we all had some sort of problem, either broken air conditioner, clogged shower, broken toilet, etc.

The major issue is that I didn't like the noise from the air conditioning and the flying visitors. Anyway, the rooms were clean, the food was good although a little too expensive and the country is really nice. There is a good Internet access and the price is lower than other hotels in the neibourhood.
