Hotel closed.
The hotel was closed for renovation when I arrived. This caused me considerable stress. Eventually I found out the the Speke Hotel was owned by the same company and they gave me accommodation. PLEASE remove the Tourist Hotel from your list until it is open again.

One of the most god aweful hotels ive ever stayed
It was terrible! Terrible! The bed was just a matress, the room was more like a shed house, there was virtualy no windows. It smelled, the next day i ran for my health! Do not stay here unless your wanted by the FBI or any government agency !

1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
All that glitter is not gold.
The advert on the net are far from reality. The rooms are so small that you cannot even stretch yourself. No air con. No hot water in the bathroom in day time. during night it is just lukewarm. So Called white Towel had become pale and treads were showing out. The palce is just next to the vegetable market where one cannot sleep the whole night due to the noise. The plumming work is of the most inferior quality even the toilet sheet had crack. Other facilities like sauna, steam, gym are a total lie. On enquiry about these facilities it was told that one can utilize these facilities in other sister concern called Dolfin suits which takes almost 30 mins drive by taxy and 30000 UGX. Over all the stay was anti climax.
