“The 50s Revisited”
Reviewed 27 December 2013

The Mosa Court Apartments reminds me of various motor court type motels, which were so popular in the 1950s. The Motel 2100 on Kingsway Highway in Vancouver, B.C. or just about any Motel 6 on any highway in the U.S. are examples.

The hotel is clean. It has been kept up in terms of ordinary maintenance, but it is dated inside and out. The rooms vary in size and comfort, but the quality is not all that good. There are televisions, but they are old.

The hotel has a small bar with a television that is always on and always tuned to sports. Breakfast at the restaurant has excellent fresh fruit, eggs are prepared to order, and service is good. There is an ordinary swimming pool. There is also a spa with a good massage for only $20.00.

There are numerous employees. They are polite and attentive. They speak good English.

Mosa Courts' strongest selling point is that it is centrally located. It is within walking distance of many governmental offices and businesses.

If the price of an ordinary room was $75.00 per night, it would be reasonable, but the price is considerably higher.

Mosa Court apartments is very close to Kampala's city center but that is about the only positive thing to say. The lobby looks sad, the rooms urgently need refurbishing and the whole hotel looks as if no noe cares to make it attractive for visitors. Take something to read if you plan to get dinner because even with few people in the dining room it can take looooooooooong. Another positive point: some of the personnel are nice.

taxed one month in a one bedroom self catering appartments. hhets, towels etc all clean and changed regularly. kitchen is adequate and there are several nearby restaurants to walk too. breakfast is included and is great. all in all very good and much cheaper and nicer if you want to feel more at home rather than in a hotel.. Than other simarly located places like the Sheraton.

While the staff were quite nice, the prices on the rooms are absolutely preposterous given the size of the rooms and their apparent age. The area around the hotel was pretty loud and I had difficulty sleeping; the latches on both my windows were broken. For an extra 10 minutes away, I was able to find a much bigger room at 1/3 the cost.

Enjoyed my stay at Mosa Court and enjoyed the food at the restaurant which is rather poorly lite. Other problem was the noise from the workers and guests on Friday evening as the windows allow in a lot of sound ( understandable due to the warm climate). However management need to monitor the noise levels particularly for the rooms on ground and first floor.

Room Tip: Dont go for the first or ground floor...too much noise penetration.

Located in the central Kampala just near Sheraton and Serena, Mosa Court is a perfect place both for business and leisure travel stay. Contains facilities for both business and leisure, has great service and moderate prices which makes this place a very attractive alternative to stay in Kampala.

As other reviewers have noted, the building is a bit dated and has stains on the walls, etc. However, we found it very clean and comfortable. The included breakfast was excellent and the staff was quite helpful and welcoming. We enjoyed using the gym, as it is hard to exercise outdoors in chaotic Kampala.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the pool area are quieter, but some outside noise is inevitable.
