The rooms are clean and sizeable. There's the old and new wing, which I stayed in the old and I loved it better. Rooms are clean although the cleaning staff took forever to clean up in the morning. Food was awesome. The staff was friendly, though could be slow at times. It's close to the road so there was easy... More

We found ourselves looking for a Kampala location that would be clean with comfortable rooms and good food - but also with easy access to get out of town the next morning without battling traffic! We were told about Kolping, and were very pleased with the recommendation. The prices were reasonable (not for budget travelers but reasonable otherwise), and the... More

I recently spent 4 nights at this hotel and was pleasantly surprised despite my initial reservations about it. The check-in process was satisfactory. The staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel was neat and clean. My room was large and spacious and even had a balcony as it was in the newer wing of the hotel. The meals in the... More

Kolping House was comfortable and safe. The staff was gracious and helpful. Janet in the gift shop was very sweet. She went out and found some special items that we wanted for our group. The breakfast buffet was ok, but repeated the same items daily.

I have now stayed at at the Kolping House, Kampala and pass it as an excellent hotel giving value for money. On my first visit I slept in a single room but found it a bit crammed so I settled for a suite truly enjoyed the space. In both instances, the bed was of good quality i.e. firm mattress, large,...

Very Clean all the time. Good laundry facilities. Stayed for two weeks whilst on mission in a school and will definitely return to the Kolping next year. Tip: If you... More

Clean rooms. Staff not always very helpful. Large and quiet garden. Feels very safe. Basic buffet breakfast. Frequent power cuts in Kampala, so hotel generator useful - however there seems to be a reluctance to use it. Downstairs rooms are dark. Back rooms are noisy from early morning: roosters, dogs, muezzin, babies... The new building has more modern and brighter... More
