Banda Inns is welcoming you. It is situated in a beautiful garden removed from busy Kampala. Rooms were recently renovated and are clean and spacious, breakfast is so good and staff is caring very well for you. Banda Inns shuttle service brings you from and to the airport as well as taxi you to town.

This small guesthouse is one of the nicest places to stay. Friendly staff giving you a feeling to be at home. A place without stress in a stressful city, where it is about people, not about TV or all kind of luxury. Nice rooms, good beds, enough space, enough power connectors, good internet. When you want to order food, you...

I appreciate the fact that internet access and power supply are 100% reliable so that occasional work from my "home office" (the lovely veranda with a view over the beautiful garden)...

This was my 8th visit to Kampala, but my first stay at Banda. It will certainly not be my last. The room was comfortable and clean with a beautiful deck. The staff were friendly and helpful.

I had a fabulous stay there! I had taken time off for myself and it was lovely. Great food, great staff members....Even the other guests ensured that they at least said hi to me. Loved the bathrooms!

Overall, my experience was wonderful and I'll be sure to consider Banda Inns as a place to stay in my future travels...
