Marble Arch Hotel: Marble Arch Hotel in Kampala

Marble Arch Hotel is located beside Olympia Hotel, behind a gravel backroad in the opposite end of Kasanga area towards Munyonyo area. This hotel was too far away from the nightlife in Kabalagala. The hotel has a nice athmosphere The price is 50000 UGS (23 USD) for a dbl. room. Breakfast is included in the price.

Olympia Hotel: Olympia Hotel in Kampala

Olympia Hotel is located beside Marble Arch Hotel, behind a gravel backroad in Kasanga towards the Munyonyo area. This hotel was too far away from the nightlife Kabalagala. It is said that many foreigners stay here, but I saw only local guests when I was here. The price is 25000 UGS (12 USD) for a very small single room. 45000 UGS (20 USD) for a dbl.room.

  • Opinion of Price: less expensive than average

Adonai Guest Houses: Please remove pictures and review

Recently in July I stayed at Adonai and it was a big disappointment. Commitments were not kept, furniture arrangement and peaceful setting now the same as in the pictures. Please remove my previous review. The place is clean and the food is safe but it bears no resemblance to my previous trips. The management needs to wake up and realize they had a good thing going instead of packing people in to houses even putting beds in the garage!

Very sad situation. Staff overworked and chef that cooked great food has gone. So sorry this happened but thought I should warn mission team leaders that your reservations may not be what you expect.

safe location, safe food, clean but not as well managed as before

City Hotel: I'll never come back

Arriving late in Kampala several hotels that I checked were all full up. Desperate to crash, I ended up climbing two sets of steep stairs at the City Hotel very close to Nakasero Market. They did have a room but that was up another flight of stairs. Too tired after the long journey from Nairobi I decided to take the room despite thinking I was paying far too much for a scruffy room with a dirty bathroom down the end of the corridor.

The bar is alright mind!


My scruffy netless room cost 25,000 UGX

Hilton: High on a hill

I was having a nice quiet beer in a bar in Old Kampala when I realised there was a new building being constructed somewhere upon a hill above the Bondo rd. I asked a guy who worked in the bar as to if he knew what was being built on the horizon. He told me he believed that it was a Hilton Hotel that was being built.

It is certainly in a really nice position on a hill looking over the city centre but when its complete I don’t know.
