Banda Inns
Ranked #1 of 210 Kampala B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 July 2007

A group of students of Oslo International School and myself had the pleasure to live in Banda Inns for 13 days. We<were in Kampala doing some voluntary work. We couldn't have found a better place to live. We occupaid the whole house. It was not room for more guestsn and I think that helped us to feel completly at home.
Steven Tamale was a great host, and helped us all the time. His very relaxing personality and kindness made our stay in Banda unforgettable.
I have to mentioned Rose and Jannet, the two lovely ladies who work at Banda. They dis an excellent job, and they were very professional. Breakfast and dinners were not only delicious but on time, something not very easy to get in Kampala. THey were always smiling and ready to please us all the time. My students were very happy and learned a lot from these two African women.
For us it was a great experience and I am sure I am writing on be
half of my students and Kikki, the other teacher who was there with me.
I would highly recommended this place tpo any person who want to live in peaceful, beautiful with a verey relaxing atmosphere and with a very competent staff.

The Banda Inn is an OUTSTANDING Bed and Breakfast located in Kampala. Steven Tamale, the Innkeeper, is a friendly and earnest host who truly strives to make your stay enjoyable and relaxing. Over the weekend, he hosted a BBQ for us (group of 4), our friends who were staying at other accommodations, and his friends where we enjoyed chicken, goat, and a roaring campfire! Rose and Janet prepare delicious Ugandan/African as well as traditional US/European meals, and they are happy to learn new recipes to add to their culinary repertoire. The full breakfast (eggs – made any style, sausage, bacon, pancakes/crepes, toast, yogurt, fruit, freshly squeezed juice, coffee, and tea) is a wonderful start to the day. FREE wireless internet access, satellite TV, and daily complimentary laundry services are significant bonuses. The Inn is perfect for groups traveling together and the garden, veranda, living room, and dining room are all ideal for relaxing, working, or socializing. If you seek a pleasant atmosphere that truly feels more like a home than a business, the Banda Inn is for you! I highly recommend it, and I will definitely stay here again.

I have wonderful memories of my stay at Banda Inns.
The rooms are simple but comfortable and cleaned, there is a terrasse overlooking a luxuriant garden where birds sing in the trees. Ideally located, this guest house is at 10 min by car from the center of Kampala. Above all, it is the smile and generosity of Rose, the hostess, that I will remember most. She goes out of a way to ensure that you have a pleasant stay. Not to mention her delicious cooking!

...but even though i`ve been thinking about it for a few days now, i still havent managed to come up with any negative feedback worth mentioning. we simply loved our stay at banda inns!
it was clean, spacious and relaxing, which was very nice to return to each night. the dinners served there were very tasteful, and the staff very welcoming and helpful. the information/service provided by the owner was excellent and meant a great deal for our stay in Uganda.
highly recommendable!

It is a good place for only a day or two on a stopover. I stayed for a few days, and i was getting incredibly borde.
Stay at a bigger hotel when you go to aplace like kampala, you learn alot more and meet more people.
you also get tips on what to do during your stay...

Banda Inn was our first lodging upon arrival in Africa, and it exceeded our expectations. We were met at the airport by friendly staff and Steven at Banda was able to give good advice and provide trustworthy drivers upon request. The house feels very private due to wonderful tropical landscaping, and the atmosphere is very relaxing. Great food prepared upon request! Beats a hotel anytime!
