The gym is rather poor, especially the cardio part which only has a few rather old machines. The rooms are rather small, but work OK. Beds have mosquito net, and they also spray the rooms daily for mosquitos. The...

I have been regularly using the Laico Lake Victoria for the past 1 & 1/2 years as I transit through Uganda for work in DRCongo. The hotel is a grand old building in well appointed grounds with a large well attended swimming pool popular with families and a very short distance from the Airport. So for me it is extremely...

Well, as far as I know, Entebbe is not the best place for the hotellerie. Anyway, the Laiko lake is acceptable: nice pool and a reasonable service: breakfast is not bad. Nice place when you arrive and you want to relax for one night.
