Stayed here for one night on our way through Kampala. At 60,000 we felt the room was a much better value than Red Chilli's where we had previously spent a couple nights. The hotel is conveniently located in the downtown with lots of cafes and transport links in the area. The rooms are large, bright with a queen-sized comfortable bed...

After a month camping in Uganda to arrive at this hotel was a pleasant suprise. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. However, the hotel is situated on one of the busiest roads I have ever come across and so the noise continues throughout the night. It is opposite a mosque which has speakers on the roof so everyone can...

First of all, this hotel is not expensive, in fact it was cheap and it provided a transfer from the airport. All communication with the hotel via internet was good and as promised the transfer was waiting for us even although our flight landed about an hour late. I felt the cost of the transfer was very fair too. I...

This hotel truly is a great deal. We paid $23 for a double room. I am certainly not complaining about that but I do think there are some things reviewers should know before they book or decide to stay here. This hotel is smack dab in the heart of downtown Kampala. This is NOT a good thing. The street that...

Stayed here for 2 nights and was really pleased at what you got for your money. Great location in the middle of town, if in a slightly mad street, but I think most of Kampala is like that. Room was clean, felt safe, friendly staff, quick turn around and cheap washing service. Ate in the hotel restaurant twice and it...

We stayed at the Aponye Hotel twice. The second time there was a misunderstanding regarding the booking and the general manager upgraded us to a better room. He then took care of us, gave us advices about places to go and visit, brought us personally to an exchange office with very good rates, organized the taxis in the early morning...

We booked this hotel last minute for a stay of two nights and were not disappointed. The hotel is very modern, clean and comfortable, and the restaurant offers good quality food . However, there are a few drawbacks, principally that the lift is permanently out of order and the hotel rooms are several flights of stairs from street level. Don't...

I have now stayed at this hotel three times and would not consider going back to Kampala and staying anywhere else ! I love it there !

“The lift wasn't working when we visited so if you aren't fit enough to climb the stairs you might like to ask if the lift is working before you accept a lift on the third floor.”
