Our family enjoyed a few very pleasant nights at 2Friends, from the generous welcome drinks on arrival, to the smooth and easy checkout and complimentary airport transfer on departure. The staff at 2Friends are exceptionally friendly, competent and helpful and cannot be recommended more highly. Our rooms were clean and comfortable, with good air conditioning and spacious balconies. Breakfast was...

There is simply nowhere better to stay in Entebbe. Only ten minutes drive from the airport, you can avoid Kampala traffic if scheduled for an early flight for your safari the next day. A great way to start your holiday with airport transfers (free one way, 10 USD return) and fantastic staff. There is a lovely little pool to cool...

What a lovely welcome we got at 2Friends where the entire team of staff were so incredibly friendly. We had booked a cheap room on booking.com which turned out to be a small room with no balcony - most other (more expensive) rooms have balconies, but this didn't bother us, the bed was very comfy, there were no mozzies and...

Relative to other hotels in Entebbe, this should perhaps be rated higher, but I'm not familiar with them, so I really don't know. They were there waiting for us at the airport after we got our luggage which was great. The food is fine and the wine wasn't bad. Vervet monkeys everywhere which we loved. Bathrooms need upgrading. Be sure...

The only place we stay when flying into Entebbe. We landed very late and they made check in very fast and got us to our room. Their driver waited for us at the airport for 3 hours because our flight was delayed with no extra charge. Great hotel and staff...highly recommend.

Perfect hotel to stay at the beginning or the end of a tour in Uganda. Very friendly staff who also bring drinks to the room. Nice beach bar with a good choice for drinks and food. Also there is a free transfer to the airport which is closeby.

Arrived early from the airport, met with a welcome drink and an early check-in. Pleasant room, food at the bar ok but make sure you order in advance to avoid a possible lengthy wait if the kitchen is busy. Also had a day room ahead of our home flight and well looked after including a free airport shuttle.

This is a lovely relaxed place, friendly staff, good wifi. Has the tropicana pizza and it was delicious. Particularly enjoyed the quirky 'treehouse' type setting overlooking the lake. Will definitely be visiting again.

I guess the price is market price but even in European terms 2feiends is not good value for money. I can't criticise the room - it was comfortable and nice enough. The pool area was very small and my basic view of the whole place is that it is ordinary for the money. Nice location across the road from the...

We stayed for a day immediately upon arrival and for a couple of days before departure. A wonderful place to start and end our trip. The rooms were excellent, the food delicious, and the staff fantastic.

“Lake view rooms have large balconies which are in shade during the afternoons. Pool view rooms may be slightly quieter, being off the road.”
