8/10 Very good

When I arrived at tge hotel, i was told the room i had booked and paid for in January was not available and i had to accept another cheaper room. The following day I spoke to the manager, Moses who promptly gave me an upgraded room. Very happy with this outcome!!! Apart from this one issue, the hotel, grounds and staff are great. Reception desk very helpful. I will happily stay there again. Really nice hotel.

quiet retreat
With limited rooms, this makes for a quiet retreat. The rooms are very comfortable and well taken care of. At night a staff member even comes to get the room ready for the night - puts the mosquito net down, fluffs the pillows, turns down the bed. The fresh fruit in the room was an added bonus. Such a comfortable, warm and welcoming spot.

Charming hotel
Charming colonial butique hotel, completed with old world feel and problems with hot water. Well Suites for romatic stats, but for Business trips I lacked a few shops nearby.

6/10 Good

The hotel is slipping a bit in terms of the attention to detail and design/style. It is still a very good property, but it used to be one of my favorite hotels in the world.

Quiet retreat in the middle of Kampala. Comfortable rooms and overly landscaping. Food, I'd give it a B. Service, A plus.

Comfortable stay
Small but cozy and greeny hotel, not like the biggest chain hotels in Kampala. I complained not having bathtub in the room but they didn't have the room at that time. At dinner time, the manager came and offered me to move to the room with a bathtub. Thank you for the quick response and kindness. I will be back.

Schönes Hotel mit Serviceschwächen
Schönes Hotel, aber schlechter Kundenservice, den uns wurde beim Check-In zugesagt, am nächsten Tag gegen Aufpreis einen späten Check-Out vorzunehmen, da unser Flug erst am Abend ging. Am nächsten Morgen hieß es dann jedoch, das Hotel sei ausgebucht und wir müssten das Zimmer regulär verlassen. Das Personal an der Rezeption war unfreundlich und auch nicht bemüht, eine Lösung zu finden.

En rolig og avslappende oase i Kampala
Emin Pasha er en liten oase i et stille, men sentralt område av Kampala. Det har et fint grøntområde med basseng, bra SPA, veldig god og variert mat og hyggelig betjening. Rommene er store med god seng, men sengetøy bærer noe preg av slitasje. Et godt sted å slappe av eller jobbe i Kampala, utenfor trafikk og støy.
