This hotel is presently under construction, but it didn't hinder our stay. We stayed here for less than one day to catch an early morning flight. Our room was very nice and clean. We are Marriott Gold members so we were given a generous upgrade at check-in. The restaurant was fine, the food was not bad, the menu was typical...

This was my first time I stayed at the Protea Hotel in Entebbe and did so as part of a group of guests of the Uganda Tourism Board. I normally pass the hotel on my way to the airport, often that is, and always wondered what the inside looks like. Check in was swift after presenting a picture ID and...

I stayed in the Protea Hotel upon arriving late to Entebbe on my way to Kampala. The hotel was super close to the airport and the rooms were nice. The breakfast in the morning was a huge buffet that even included Bloody Mary mix. The rooms were nice and the bar was open until midnight which was great for a...

The hotel is under renovation, so there's a lot of somewhat awkward accommodations being made (they're putting in a new reservations desk, for instance, so they're using a temporary one), and there were intermittent power outages. However, the staff was unfailingly polite, friendly and helpful. In fact, when our taxi was late, the GM had the hotel van run us...

I ended up staying here because of a problem with my flight and without a reservation, they were able to accommodate me. The staff was so very nice and professional; they immediately made me feel welcomed. They gave me a room with a view of Lake Victoria: could I just stay here forever?! So relaxing, so peaceful. Food was good,...

Enjoyed a lovely stay before our flight the following day. Received very friendly service from all staff. Beautiful view right on Lake Victoria. Breakfast the following morning was tasty. Lovely air conditioning to avoid the heat.
