The room I was given was not the one shown in the Expedia app. When I brought it to the notice at the reception they had no answer. The so called deluxe room was like a pigeon hole and unclean. I have taken a picture. Would never stay in this hotel again.

Apartments at rear of property are spacious and good value. Be prepared for a lengthy walk between reception and the apartment though, including a walk thru' a public car park (muddy and slippery after rain). Excellent service and food.

The staff are so kind and the most professional of all of Uganda. My wife had fallen ill due to her time of the month and trying to keep up with me exploring the city and the hotel staff helped us get medicine that had her back up and on her feet within a day's time. They are heroes in the motherland!

The hotel is a little pricey, but it is worth it considering other options that are "cheap", but give you no service whatsoever. The staff was great and attentive. There are three restaurants onsite, so one has many options for meals. It's very quiet at night and the Internet works quite well. It is the first time I haven't had to tether my phone to use the Internet at any hotel at which I have stayed in Kampala.
