I stayed here for business and it was ok, if a little shabby around the edges.

The bedroom was ok, although a twin room, which is a little irritating when you are on your own as you can't stretch out, but the bed was comfortable, if a little hard.

The restaurant in the hotel was good, and the bar was nice.

They arranged a taxi driver to take me round the sights, although he was a little expensive.

The wifi did not work in my room, and the receptionist did not know why, but there was an internet cafe that I could use for free.

We recently stayed at the the Speke hotel and loved it. The rooms were clean and the staff were friendly and always helpful. It also has a great location being in the city centre.We also ate at the hotel and enjoyed the food, particulary the Indian restaurant. We had absolutely no problems with the hot water as cited in some of the other reviews. It really is a bargain for the price you pay.

My sisters and I shared a triple room for one night. The room was clean, the bathroom appeared to be updated compared with the time of some other reviews, however the shower water was a bit temperamental in pressure and sometimes temperature (took a while for water to heat up). The staff were friendly and the breakfast buffet was quite good with a variety of choices. We had dinner at their Italian restaurant outside and the food (mushroom risotto and spaghetti with spinach) was good and the waiters were very attentive. The manager even stopped by a couple times to make sure everything was good. We were pleased with our stay here.

The drive from entebbe to kampala was interesting as you see huge mansions afar off and crowded markets and shacks where people live in unbeleivable conditions, saw a board on the way that said shoppers lets make uganda aids free., showing the danger that lies in the city, the entrance to the hotel was good, old wooden floors kept impeccably clean, front desk very efficient and the rooms are average, beds are hard and a tiny television that looks like a desktop monitor, one bottle of complimentary water, breakfast average, indian restaurant was good the niceities ends right there,
the bathrooms could be better, the water stopped flowing and you had to make calls to get it running again, the waiters during breakfast are lethargical, a small space in your room with large windows for smoking area is refreshing.
towels could be cleaner and bed linens could be cleaner and pillow covers, i had to ask them to change it when i checked in as it was dirty.
its good for people looking for honey for money.

Room Tip: buy water bottles on ur way, it helps to be safe,

Great downtown location to watch people strolling by. Reasonable value but biggest issue was no hot water in the morning. Breakfast good and staff friendly. I would recommend if staying a few nights in Kampala.
