The Protea is very convenient when you have a 12-hour layover (like I did) and have a (justifiable) fear of getting stuck in Kampala traffic so want to avoid town. The Protea provides a free shuttle to and from the airport and a nice pool. Rooms are large, clean, and modern with lots of different cable TV channels, shower with good water pressure, and a/c for those who want it. There are lots of spaces where you can sit and have a coffee or a drink, and the food is good. It may not be the cheapest hotel for a day room, but depending on where you are coming from this is a hotel with all the amenities you may have been missing while traveling elsewhere...starting with a welcome drink upon check-in.
