I had to go to Kampala on business and the main client was within walking distance so he chose where I was to stay. If you need to be in the centre of all the NGO's and have a quiet spot this is it!! It is a clean & comfortable spot with a garden setting. It is owner run, the...

I've been visiting Kampala for the last 7 years and have stayed in two other hotels/guesthouses there - both very central. It was nice to be in Muyenga - a pleasant suburb - for a change. I booked Banda Inns this time and stayed there for about a week. I could not have been happier with it and really enjoyed...

I spent a week at the Banda Inn and was very pleased with the stay and accommodations. The staff very extremely friendly and helpful, the food was above average, and the rooms were clean and comfortable. On a map it appears that the hotel is far from the city centre but for someone used to big cities in the U.S....

I stayed at Banda Inns for four days in mid-August and was very pleased with my time there. The owners were very friendly and the room was more than adequate. The bed was quite large and the breakfast was great. I particularly enjoyed the french press coffee option and the Nutella availability. Banda Inns is just off Tank Hill road...

We stayed several nights and the hosts were very accomodating. They have good food and a comfortable night's sleep. Wifi is available in the room, which is not often available in 2 other places we stayed in Uganda.

In September 2012 I stayed in this nice, cosy family inn, where there is a wonderful garden. I really enjoyed staying because the host family is relaxed and service minded. The breakfast is served on the terrace and you have a list of optional dishses that you order the night before. Thank for a great week.

I went back to Uganda for the first time in many years and found Banda Inns the perfect place to stay. Great value for money, good location, excellent service, lovely garden and overall a very comfortable place to spend any amount of time. I will definitely be back, both to Kampala and to Banda Inns!

We are a half Ugandan family of four, returing "home" once in a while to visit friends and family once in a while. We have now stayed at Banda Inns twice - and I am sure we will be back next time. With two small daughters aged 2 and 4 it was the perfect choice. They could roam around in...

This family run accommodation is wonderful, laundry and wifi are included, there is a nice seating area outside and the rooms are spacious, clean and airy. The breakfast included french toast, nutella, peanut butter, yogurt, granola, eggs...it was wonderful! I have finally found a place to return to in Kampala.

I’ve been to Kampala three times, for business and travel. This is my first stay at Banda Inns. I have been here for seven weeks, and I have already made plans to stay here next year with my husband. The owners live on the premises, and they and their staff go out of their way to be accommodating. If you...
