A good find in this chaotic corner of the city, the scruffy (but comfy) hotel rooms have satellite TV, wi-fi, room service and some have air-con and balconies. There’s also secure parking and a decent restaurant. Downsides are its chaotic downtown location, perpetually out-of-order lift and unreliable hot water.
Set in central Kampala, 900 metres from Independence Monument, Aponye Hotel features a restaurant and free WiFi throughout the property. Guests can enjoy the on-site bar. The rooms are fitted with a TV and telephone. The bathroom has a shower. Some of the rooms are air-conditioned and the beds are draped with a mosquito net. Breakfast is served in the restaurant every morning and snacks or a la carte dishes can be ordered throughout the day. The hotel has meeting and conference facilities. Airport shuttles can also be arranged. Kabaka's Palace and Uganda Golf Club are both 2.5 km away.
