I've stayed in multiple hotels around Uganda, in Soroti, Gulu, and Kampala and J Residence Motel is by far my favourite. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. Some rooms even have refrigerators and hot water kettles (supplied with teas and biscuits). The lobby has some couches and there is an area outside where you can sit and enjoy a nice coffee in the morning. The breakfast buffet is delicious and has great variety, my favourite are the fresh fruits. There is also free wifi available. It is definitely a lovely place to stay.

All of the aforementioned features make J Residence a great place to stay. However, the one most important thing that made me really enjoy my stay here is the staff. They are extremely friendly, helpful, and welcoming. If you ever decide to come to J Residence, make sure you meet Habiba and Lawrence. They really made my trip memorable and I enjoyed their company, especially since I was travelling alone. They gave great recommendations and advice (and made sure I wasn't being ripped off). Needless to say, if I am ever in Entebbe again, I will 100% stay at J Residence.

The J. Residence is a welcome respite after a long journey in Entebbe, Uganda. The staff are warm, friendly, and extremely helpful. The rooms are clean, hot shower (can’t enough about that) and breakfast is included. I would highly recommend J. Residence.

We stayed here to be closer to the airport prior to a late night departure. The staff is VERY attentive and accommodating. Meals are thoughtfully prepared from scratch by an excellent cook. Rooms are spacious and it’s all the amenities. We were graciously encouraged to wait at the hotel for over 8 hours after so that we would “be more comfortable” than at the airport. We also arranged for lunch to be served to us and local friends. Meals and beverages are VERY reasonably priced.
The hotel is enclosed in a compound which provides excellent security but does not allow for much walking about. The wide variety of local birds that live here make it a sanctuary!

We stayed here briefly when coming in internationally in the middle of the night. We got a complimentary ride from the airport (which was about 10-15 minutes long) and had great customer service. The receptionist got us straight to our room and pampered us with breakfast in the morning. The quality of the rooms will not blow you away but the positive intangibles in every other area are well worth it and you cannot beat the price!
