In general, the Aponye is much better than one would expect given how inexpensive it is - rooms are clean, staff is helpful, rooms have satellite tv, there's free wireless Internet that is accessible just about everywhere. Sure, it doesn't include breakfast in the price of the room like a lot of Kampala hotels do - but even when you include an extra 5000 ush it's still a screaming deal, and the restaurant is much better than average (try the Jeera chicken).

This is my one complaint, and it's significant enough that I'd consider skipping this place in the future: ive stayed at the aponye on three separate occasions totaling five nights. I have had a hot shower one time. The rest of the times the water wasn't even lukewarm; it was freezing cold, and I could hardly stand it. I live in a rural area of Africa and bathe out of a basin most days, and the cold showers left me longing to get back to that.

If that doesn't bother you and you want to be in the heart of the city (you can walk just about everywhere), the Aponye is great.

Pretty nice hotel once you navigate one of the worst streets we've ever stayed on. The street is a downside but other than that the location is pretty central. Good internet connection and TV in the rooms. Good mid-range choice. Take a taxi at night.

I decided to stay at this hotel after reading good reviews, I arrived about 10pm the road was quite but there were piles of rubbish everywhere. The taxi driver was good to me as he helped me with my bag up the steps lots and lots and lots of steps, and that was only to the reception I still had another four flights to get to my room. The hotel was home for prostitutes and their pimps if you refuse a prostitute then be prepared for abuse from her pimp and he will get very nasty. This is not the place for single females or families to stay.

i staid here twice in Oct 2010. the first time i had a room with no fly screens on the windows and no mozzie net. i forgot to shut the windows on the first night and spent the next 2 nights with very little sleep as mozzies used my ears as a landing strip.
the second time i booked a room in advance, with a mozzie net. when i arrived they told me the people in my room decided they wanted to stay another night, so i could not have a double. can't see the point of booking! tried to explain this to the receptionist but was met with a blank stare like 'why are you telling me your problem!'.
on both occassions the lift did not work, no hot water because it was cloudy and they have a small solar hot water system. on occassion the electricity cut off around midnight and was not back on until 7am, so in a room where you can't have windows open cause there are no fly screens with no fan.
the location is central and easy to walk everywhere, but its a rough area where they don't have much respect for the westerners. if you get in their way while they are working, they will knock you around a bit and have a laugh about it.

Rooms were clean but sparse. Louvered upper windows can't be closed and are open to whatever noise is nearby. The room we had reserved was given to someone else with no attempt at making it right. Manager was unavailable.
