The surrounding in a residential area is perfect as it is quiet and easy to travel to and from the City Centre. I stayed on the bottom level overlooking the gardens and the pool which was very relaxing. As always the staff are extremely helpful and friendly. The menu has not changed, but the meals I had were excellent, from...

I have stayed here 3 times whilst in various visits to Uganda due to the location of the hotel and quiet nature of the location. The Dolphin Suites Hotel is located outside central Kampala in Bugolobi. Bogolobi has a decent shopping centre but a fair distance from the hotel. The area is divided up into industrial, commercial and residential areas....

African style hotel with a swimming pool and a nice covered terrasse as its restaurant. Staff is friendly, rooms are quite basic, with a noisy air conditioning. It covers the loud outside sound that is not filtered by the windows. The bathroom is small, with basic faucets, the water is from the roof tank: you'd rather not drink it. The...

Rooms are a good size with a comfy bed. Tv channels are better than most but very limited. Setting is generally nice but can be noisy when they are hosting functions on site. Curtains are too light and therefore see through especially at night. Pool is a nice size & feature. Staff are pleasant & helpful. Food is okay too....

I don't know how it is possible this property had such a good rating. Overwhelming smell of urine, very small bed, bedding and towels not clean. Tv and noise travel to other rooms without the neighbors being noisy. One expect this from a place half the price, but NOT for the price charged.
