My husband and I stayed at the J Residence twice during our six weeks in Uganda - first when we arrived in Entebbe, then again when we flew out. We couldn't have been happier! Having traveled in Africa for nearly 4 months already, this was easily one of our favorite stays! The staff could not have been more accommodating or...

Stayed here in June straight from the airport for a couple of days.. John, the owner was very helpful and obviously very dedicated to his job and his business.. When we landed it appeared the airline had lost my luggage. John was so helpful at sorting this out, taking us back and forth to the airport over the next few...

This Hotel is the best place to rest from the hustle and bustle of noisy Kampala and Entebbe. If you want to just get a rest, the staff is courteous and professional, the rooms are cleans and the meals and rates are reasonable. I will not stay anywhere else when I return to Uganda.

As a quick overnight after landing in Entebbe, J. Residence was fine. I would not have wanted to stay longer than a night though. We didn't want to go all the way into Kampala because we were leaving the next day for Fort Portal, so Entebbe was a close, easy alternative for us. The rooms at J. Residence are barebones,...

The mattress had dips that you fall into, the power kept failing and the hotel refused to put the generator on so no hot water and no wifi.. The dinner cost $10 for a child size plate of tough beef stew.. The staff were unhelpful and refused all of our requests i.e. a later check out to allow us to...

We had a great time at this hotel. The staff were very accommodating and went above and beyond to ensure that we had everything we needed. We stayed here before our flights out of Entebbe after 3 months of research and brought along a ton of luggage, which they happily stored for us with no issues. The food was great...

We stayed for just one night. The motel is very clean and the room was comfortable (though a bit dark...we were in a downstairs room). The service was also very good both before and during our stay.

J. Residence is perfect in every way: excellent staff, best bed of our entire 5-week trip, and the owner even took us to his church. Entebbe is well worth spending more time in, not just an airport stop, and this small hotel gives you the perfect way to enjoy the city.

Situated some 10km from Entebbe Airport, the room price includes transport to the airport. A very relaxing place to stay either before flying out or just having arrived. Very clean en-suite rooms!
