Emin Pasha is not just a hotel, it is an experience. Whether you are on business or using Kampala as a base for a tourism jaunt in East Africa, the Emin Pasha is just something you can not afford to miss. It isn't cheap, but it isn't outrageous either, but by African standards it is 7 star.
Said to be the location used as Idi Amin's home in the film "The Last King of Scotland", the hotel is colonial spledour in real time. The staff are young, bright, and helpful and when they say they will miss you when you leave, they actually mean it!
It is an oasis of peace and comfort, but done in its own way that bears no resemblance to global 5 star chain hotels.
The restaurant was something to look forward to each night. Although a very limited menu, the food is fresh, local, and magnificent, I don't often ask to meet the chef to thank him, but I did this time.
Book early before you leave for Uganda however, it is a small hotel and it has a huge reputation, if you don't book early you will miss out and that would be a dreadful shame, this is one of my all time favourite places to stay.
