Reviewed 27 September 2013

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.

We just spent a night at Hotel Kigo after attending a wedding at the neighbouring Lake Victoria Serena resort. I would recommend it - unpretentious small hotel - beautiful views of the Lake, friendly staff, comfortable double self contained rooms. A nice escape from Kampala
