i love it , great place to relax , great effort to please clients . my style .
The rooms are decorated in modern style with oriental accents and are situated in such a way that makes you feel that you're in a very private and lovely place.
The food served in the main restaurant is great and organic

Lovey characterful retreat in great location. A quiet oasis. Room was nice but with very odd bathroom which gave little privacy. Service was somewhat lacking. The room safe did not work and although I drew it to the attention of staff nothing was done. The price is high considering the limited facilities. However if you want peace and quiet and good food in Kampala this is the place.

This is a hotel and retail complex which I recommend primarily because of the originality of its layout and for the stylish rooms which are provided in separate duplex buildings. Rooms are accessed by walking on stone pathways which are surrounded by lush vegetation and shrubs. The rooms are decorated in modern style with oriental accents and are situated in such a way that makes you feel that you're in a very private and lovely place.
The premises also contain an interesting Deli with a large selection of meats and vegetables which you have access to if you are cooking in your suite. As for eating, you have the option of eating in the main restaurant or going to the cafe which is adjacent to a couple of retail shops for tourists.
The food served in the main restaurant is above average and breakfast which comes with the room is superb. If you prefer a quick breakfast you can go to the cafe and have rolls, coffee and such.
Overall this hotel is a nice choice for people starting off a visit in Uganda or for someone coming to work in Kampala for a short time who would like the advantages of a private suite.

I was not impressed especially with the amount I paid to stay in this hotel. The room is below average and the bathroom is made of glass close to the bed. At night, people are walking beside your room and you keep wondering are they going to enter your room!!! They only have one restaurant and the breakfast is below average especially if you don't eat egg in the morning. There was a mosquito in my room which made me worried at night and had to spray the room. Last but not least, the reception and staff need an urgent customer service training. They welcome you with attitude and they don't even offer to help you with your luggage. I will definitely stay somewhere else next time

This hotel was expensive, had bad service and the door guy didn't even get someone to help with the bags. My phone call was ignored when I asked for someone to fix the ac/hot water and to top it off, we thought we were being broken in to at night as there was so much noise around our room. Avoid at all costs!!!

Room Tip: Avoid at all costs as this hotel is a terrible choice. We were very disappointed.

Only 12 suites, a little pool, situated outside the city.

Tranquil, except for nightly near by disco music, which prevents sleeping before 03.00 in the night !!!!!!!!!!

Excellent security internally.

Nice restaurant, rather laid back lazy service.

Excellent Butchery and small Patissery, great cakes baked on the premises.

No parking problems and easy access to the city.

Room Tip: Take a suite situated on the upper level.

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!
