I spent 16 days at Banda Inns, they helped me every day providing affordable transportation to my Conference center, great location and nice people. Not only Steven, Asteria, and Kafeero, but also the whole staff are excellent in helping their guests. I could not have chosen a better place. I recommend it, i felt I was home. I also met two great friends there!! Elena

I spent 14 days in Kampala at Banda Inns. The service was great and all the people were friendly and welcoming. Rooms are big, comfortable and very VERY CLEAN. Internet is always available and fast.
I would recommend Banda Inns to everyone who asked. Moreover I got along really well with the other costumers. It means we were there sharing the same wonderful experience and we enjoyed our stay.

The hotel staff was very friendly which makes you feel very comfortable and welcome in the Banda Inns. I will surely come back there if I will return to Kampala. The situation of the hotel is very quiet, what makes you can sleep very good. The food is very good, and you can be very flexible in the time you would like to have your dinner.

This is the second Easter running that we have stayed in Banda Inn.It was a pleasure to return again to stay here. For a group of about 20 it is an excellent place to stay since we make up most of the guests and therefore feel 'at home'.
Steven and his wife are excellent hosts.

Kampala can be very stressful--it's busy, crowded and high-paced. Banda Inns was the perfect place to retreat to--it was blissfully quiet, safe with beautifully manicured grounds and a friendly staff. One of the best things about it is Banda Inns is locally run and owned, so you can still get a really good taste of Uganda without sacrificing the basic comforts you'd expect from home.

I had a lot to accomplish in Kampala in a very short period of time, and I could not have done it without my driver Rogers Masaba--who was not only savvy and painstakingly honest but he also had tons of insider information about how to get things done at the cheapest prices possible. Since Kampala has a brutal bartering culture--this was a huge help and gave me lots of peace of mind. His number is [--] or you can email him at [--] and tell him Jen sent you. This guy was gold.

Asteria, the co-owner of Banda Inns, was the perfect host. It was great to chat with her at the end of the day and get her perspective on my project. I also was impressed with how safe my things were at Banda Inns. Asteria runs a tight ship while infusing the whole place with warmth and comfort. The girls working for her are gems. If you're relocating to Kampala and need temporary housing or just need to relax, this place is excellent.
