“Great for a work trip”
Reviewed 10 December 2013

I was in Kampala for work last month and spent 3 nights at Le Petit Village. My room had good space, all the things I needed to work such as a desk, wifi and 24hr power as well as an amazing shower with super pressure!

The adjoining restaurant was a treat after a long day in town, the pool looked good but unfortunately it was rather overcast when I stayed so I didn’t make use of it. The location is pretty good if you have to be in or near Central Kamapla. There was a little bit of noise at night from a disco in the newly built mall over the road, however it wasn’t enough to disturb my sleep and let’s face it – you cant really escape from this kind of thing anywhere in urban centers within Uganda!

We had a really nice room next to the pool and it had everything we needed. Staff were very good and attentive and the food was great. There's a patisserie in the complex and it is fantastic with a large selection of cakes, bread and pastries. The hotel is situated next to the American Embassy and very central for the rest of Kampala.

Room Tip: we had a suite which was fine for 2 of us, there is larger accommodation.

Beautifuly located next to the US embassy in Kampala. Within the complex a Belgian butcher, a Belgian baker and a Belgian restaurant. Rooms are contemporary African designed and very specious. Service with an attention to detail. A bit pricy, but it's all worth it. Breakfast outside on the porch of the restaurant is delightful. A menu like nothing else in the region. Delicious food and a great variety of good wines from France and South Africa. Friendly and efficient staff. Only negative is the extensive security search when entering the compound, but that's all thanks to the Westgate attack in Nairobi last month.

This hotel is well situated in Kampala and the standard is very good. Really nice clean rooms next to the pool. We had no problems with any aspect and the staff were extremely helpful sorting out some travel arrangements. Rita at the desk and her colleagues all did their jobs very well.

So this is a nice looking hotel and is well located with good staff and a nice pool. BUT....the roof of each of the rooms is thatched. This looks lovely but means that there is absolutely no sound proofing from the road outside so it's very noisy. In addition (and the main problem) is the outdoor nightclub on the other side of the road that you feel like you are in when you want to go to sleep. We only stayed in this place for 2 nights either side of a trip to see the gorillas and it finished quite late on Monday but not until 4am on Friday night when I finally managed to get to sleep.

So if you can sleep through World War 3 then this place is nice. If not, I recommend giving it a miss.

on a recent trip from Mbarara to Kampala for a workshop, a group of us were booked into lepetit hotel as it was close to our workshop venue. i was immediately surprised at the quiet and serene atmosphere in the middle of the noisy Kampala hustle and bustle. The rooms were spacious and the staff were friendly and dedicated. compared to the internet at my office, their WIFI was really fast. Their restaurant is top notch and i recommend the next time you visit Kampala, Le Petit Village is the place to stay!

This place is pretty good. Clean, elegant rooms and good attention to detail. Not outstanding, but good for Kampala. Good quality showers and comfortable beds. Boutique style if not in service.

Not central so you have to take taxis/motorbikes everywhere, and the traffic is terrible. The breakfast is average. The staff try to overcharge you for taxis.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back by the outside wall can be noisy.
