I have been coming to Kampala on business for about a year now. I avoid the hustle of downtown Kampala and was staying at the Serena Hotel overlooking Lake Victoria. The Serena 5 star is awesome. However, I was blown away with a small 12 room hotel on a hilltop overlooking Lake Victoria. The rooms were comparable and the view was breathtaking. Did I mention the monkeys? This hotel is quiet, romantic and is a great refuge. I negotiated a deal with the manager for only $35 USD a day, for a suite and breakfast included. The staff not only gave me clean linens and room cleaning daily, but they even washed my shoes and clothes for next to nothing. The beer and drinks are the cheapest in Africa. The food is awesome and fresh. Get yourself a MTN dongle for internet, and have blazing internet for only $80 a month.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- We are located on the Entebbe airport highway, just 100 metres away from the Lake Victoria Serena Resort, with the only highly spectacular view of Lake Victoria. Often referred to as "the million dollar lake view place." ... more less
