I stayed at the LVH for about ten days while working at the nearby UN base. Even with the UN rate the rooms are expensive for the quality. Rooms in the renovated part of the hotel are a bit better, though even these are dark and depressing. The breakfast buffet is just okay, with rather low quality items offered, though in abundance. Service in the resto is slow and staff are generally disinterested. There is supposed to be a fitness center, though it was under renovation. The wireless internet was often down and generally weak throughout much of the premisis. Perhaps the one saving feature is the hotel grounds/pool.
Which brings me to my main complaint, the attitude of management toward their guests. The second weekend I was there the hotel had hired out the entire pool area for a lavish wedding, advising guests that the pool would not be available to them (on the weekend, which is the only time those working might actually use it). As my colleagues and I were to fly out later in the night we had planned on using the pool to relax before our flights, though this was no longer possible, We therefore asked if we could have a later check-out and this turned out to be a protracted negotiation that, after two days, allowed us first to stay til noon (they claim the usual checkout time is 1000 hrs!), and eventually 1500 hrs. And with this concession we were made to understand we had been granted an enormous favor. Sorry, but with this attitude I will definitely stay elsewhere when next in Entebbe.
