Friendly staff who tried to correct faults I made
Booked this hotel for its gym facility. When I asked for the gym they just said not available! When I told them I booked the hotel as it advertised a gym they just said sorry and shrugged their shoulders.

Great Friendly Staff and Wonderful Location
The staff were attentive and friendly for my short stay. The location was perfect in downtown Kampala. The breakfast was good and standard and the rooms large and comfortable. I didn't notice much noise from outside and the bathroom water was hot and the water pressure was great.
