A touch of la vie francaise in Kampala.

Lovely quiet hotel with great French restaurant. Grounds are lush and green. Hotel is small, which makes it nice. Rooms are individual bungalows with thatch roofs, terraces, and bathtubs. Beds are a bit hard!

Great, except for noise!

I've always wanted to stay here on a trip to Kampala and I finally did on a sat and Sunday night. I was relieved when the hotel driver was still waiting for me although my flight was several hours late. The staff is great, very helpful with every request. However, I don't think I've ever slept so little at a hotel. The club across the street plays extremely loud music from 9 pm to 5 am. I thought Sunday night would be better, but it was worse than sat. Night, I don't know how it is during the week, but if you need to get some sleep I don't recommend staying here, which is a shame because it's such a nice little hotel. Maybe bring ear plugs, but not sure how much it would help as the music sounds like it's next door.

Excellent Hotel

This has very good reviews and is a good hotel. The only thing is that my taxi driver couldn't find it, even with me printing off a map! Tell them it is near the American Embassy - should help!

Loved the hotel. Rooms are unique and service is great. So much better than your usual large hotels.

Haven in chaos

Posted Aug 13, 2013
Pros: More like a lodge than a hotel....very friendly and accommodating staff
Cons: Internet connectivity is really slow and continuously had to log on again....frustrating.
Location: In the middle of suburbia....not much to do near by.
The hotel is very friendly and accommodating in all aspects. Found rooms to be comfortable and clean. Food at the restaurant is superb with locals actually visiting for a meal. Stayed in room 10 at back of complex, was actually great to be away from the main road. Power failure on 2 days when rain started...but that could be an electrical problem in the area...restored very quickly however. Only disappointments were that internet access cut off continuously and the club across the main road continued to bang out thumping music until 5am every night, including Sunday!

Nice hotel with enclosed restaurants next to US Em

Posted Jun 26, 2013
Pros: Room, pool, breakfast.
Cons: I had to leave a night early but they would not refund even a partial night. They did not have to as I but I spent $2600 at the hotel in total.
Location: Mall opposite with some food and bear options, US Embassy next door. 1/2 hour to downtown in car 10 minutes on boda.
Room was very large, clean, and generally good. I did order a two suites and only one got a suite but this was a small compliant. French bakery next door is top notch and the included breakfast is excellent. The pool is small but nice.

No internet! Major let down

Posted Apr 19, 2013 on Hotels
I know this is Uganda, but I was really put in a terrible spot because I had a ton of online work to do for my job, and the internet worked maybe 5% of the time I was there. I had to go to coffee shops (through taxis) to get internet, where I had to pay for it. This is supposed to be "part" of your hotel stay, but it is not. For me, internet is a necessity while traveling, not a luxury. Also, someone's room was broken into while I was there (nothing was stolen - he had everything valuable in his safe). Further, the staff was alternately helpful and unhelpful. It took an argument at one point to get a bottle of water from the front desk. The rooms are clean and nice, but the shower was grimy. I wouldn't stay there again next time I go to Kampala. Way overpriced for what you get.

We extended our stay and were moved to an Executive Suite from a Junior Executive Suite. The Junior was nicer! Overall a pleasant stay. The adjoining restaurant and coffee shop were excellent.
