“Brilliant!”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

A team of us were working mainly in other parts of Uganda but stayed in Emmaus during our few days in Kampala. Staff are very friendly and the food is fantastic. Warm and welcoming atmosphere. Wifi was great for keeping in contact with friends and family back home. Beautiful garden and outdoor space. Definitely recommend!!

The service at Emmaus is great. Facilities are very good. Rooms are clean. Linens are clean. Food is great. I have stayed here alone (white female) and felt completely safe 24/7. Anything I needed, the staff was always happy to help. Great rates and great location too.

I went to Kampala for the first time and my family and I stayed at the Emmaus house. The Staff are so friendly and the garden was beautiful. The staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome. There's no other place I'd rather stay in Kampala. I hope to visit again soon!

Room Tip: All rooms are good. It's Africa people... there are no pools or fitness center.

I have stayed here when visiting Kampala - great value for money in a quieter location that is not too far from the bustle of Central Kampala. Staff are friendly and let me use the WiFi although not sure this is standard.

Food is adequate and there is a nice restful garden with distant views of Lake Victoria

I'v stayed here a couple of times now, and each time the staff are very helpful. I like to prepair when i arrive in a different country so i phoned a man called Livingston Wavamunno who helps run the guest house to arrange a taxi for me at the airport, what a big help to me when you see someone at the airport you know to pick you up and not paying a lot for the taxi.
When i arrived at the Guest house i was welcomed by the manager her name was Prossy it was arround midnight, she was very helpful to me. Through my stay both Livingston and Prossy can't do enough for me. This guest house is very clean and tidy clean towels and bed sheets, i'm happy to write this review as Emmaus is good for familys couples or single well done to all the staff can't thank you enough. I will be staying here again when i come to Uganda.

I have stayed multiple times at the Emmaus Guest House with parties a small as 2 and as large as 15. The service is friendly and accommodating, the breakfasts are simple but very good, the grounds are very well kept and the police station is literally next door. Plenty of services within walking or boda-boda distance, nice place up Tank Hill to take photos of the city and even Lake Victoria. Looking forward to being there again in October!!!!
