The hotel is clean, pleasant and well located. It is a five minute walk from the brand-new Victoria Mall with supermarket, bank and coffee shop and therefore a great spot for stocking up pre or post flight. The road to the mall is VERY dark at night, but appears to be safe.
The staff were very friendly and professional. There was a slight error in our booking but it was sorted out instantly.
We took a short stroll along the beach in the morning and enjoyed some good bird watching and a troop of monkeys playing.

"Good value for uganda. Really close to the airport"
At first I thought his hotel was a bit expensive, due to its proximity to the airport, but after a week traveling in Uganda, I think this hotel is a better value than anything else we saw. (We saw dingy tent cabins that cost more per night)
The staff is friendly and attentive, the aiport transfers went off without a hitch - it was great to see our hotel driver waiting amongst the chaos leaving the airport. Good AC, great, functional bug nets - even though we didn't see a mosquito in the room. (So many hotel's bug nets look scary and are useless) Great To get a deal with Expedia.

It was my second time at the Laico. The food is excellent. The rooms are kept immaculate. Staff is very friendly and courteous. Some of the staff remembered me, a US citizen, and my wife, a Ugandan citizen from last year. While this doesn't seem like a big thing, it means they have long term employees in a good work environment. Happy employees equals good service!!

I booked online and then phoned the hotel from Ireland to check I was to be collected from the airport and gave the flight I was coming in on which was late in the evening. I confirmed that I was to be collected and that they had my name. I did not give the arrival time first because if they advertised a collection service the London flight is one they should know and also there could be a delay so they should routinely check before expected arrival.
I was not collected and had to take a taxi which substantially increased the cost of my stay and to which they made the most minimal contribution. So although I was well looked after by the staff when I arrived the the owner was never there and was unhelpful.
This is the first time that I have been seriously disappointed at my treatment in Uganda which in general is a country I would highly recommend

Great hotel for Western travelers…close to the airport (less than 10 minutes)
Arrived after 11:00 PM - too late to travel long distances in Uganda.
Airport pick-up by Brian was great…clean and professional vehicle.
Hotel interior was new and it seems they are still making some improvements...however rooms are spacious and comfortable.
Breakfast is included with enough options to satisfy most..
Fitness room and pool is available…however the fitness room didn't seem to have A/C.

I had a great experience. The staff are very friendly, and the food is delicious. It's a great location if you want to get to the airport on time, also, it's close to lots of great Entebbe beaches, forex bureaus, and wildlife centres.
