Our hotel is secured with CCTV and 24/7 security guards with guns.

We are centrally located, surrounded by embassies such as the French and Danish embassy. The state house is only 10 minutes away by walking. Hence, our location is in a relatively secure area of Kampala.

We do not allow visitors who are not staying at our hotel to use our facilities or dine from our restaurant unless they are related to a guest currently staying at our hotel. All our facilities are exclusively for our guests only reducing any security risks.





Our conference room in our city centre hotel is centrally located in the heart of Kampala city, only 6 minutes away from the Central Business District & Kampala Road by walking. We are ideally tucked away on a road just behind the busy Kampala Road such that we are very close to the business district but away from the hustle and bustle of the busy Kampala road.

Based in the prime expensive Nakasero district, there are several high end hotels and large organisations in the vicinity. We are are surrounded by embassies, ministries, companies and are on a main road, Lumumba Avenue,  which is easily accessible by car.

Around us

Places of interest around us include the Independence monument, Uganda National Cultural Centre (National Theatre) and African Crafts Market.

The most visited attractions in Kampala city are only 20 minutes away from our hotel by car. These include Gaddafi mosque, Kasubi Tombs and Kabaka’s palace.

We are also surrounded by several restaurants, bars and coffee shops in case you would like to take any meetings off-site. There is a large supermarket, Senana, and doctors’ clinics a few minutes walk away for your convenience. The police station is also located a few minutes away.

Getting to our hotel from the Airport

Depending on the time of the day, it takes about 45 minutes to get from Entebbe Airport to our hotel with low traffic levels. We would recommend that you travel at an off-peak time to ensure you do not get stuck in Kampala traffic.





Our hotel is located in Uganda which is crossed by the equator. Here in Uganda, we have only two seasons, the dry season and the wet season with warm equatorial temperatures of 28 – 32 degrees all year round. 

Our conference room is located indoors, so even if it does rain, you would not be affected. Should you choose to have the break-out sesssions outdoors, we could always arrange for tents at an additional cost in case it rains.


Away from work day:

If you are a company/organisation looking for something different, we can create “away from work days” for your staff.

The concept of “Away from Work” days is to combine work/play to make either the conference/training more interesting and also to motivate your staff.

Some combinations include:

  • Conferencing plus Leisure eg Swimming
  • Conferencing plus fun Indoor/Outdoor Team Building Activities

If you have other “away from work” day ideas you would like to explore, simply get in touch with us at
