10/10 Exceptional

I liked the location , the service and the staff attitude towards guest was kind, courteous and pleasant. Other Amenities lie shopping malls and restaurants are at a distance . There is always traffic in Kampala. However nothing the hotel can do. This is government and state infrastructure.

Room for Improvement
Only one towel in room, AC stopped working, and TV had no channels - but the staff did their best to rectify these things within 24 hours. Once working, TV channels were few. Restaurant menu is very limited and the size of the writing on the menu is so small it’s almost impossible to read it. Staff were great. I just think budget cuts on things like tv, good internet access and menu range has reduced the quality of the hotel. Before Covid it was much better. I hope it improves.

Hotel with potential to be better
Stay was good. No TV working though which was disappointing. One towel in room, even though 2 guests checked in. Had to ask each day for a second towel. Restaurant Menu is limited. Service was a little lazy. Bed comfortable. Room very clean.
