Was there for a 5 day global PME workshop (October 10-15) from my organisation. The rooms were overbooked so we stayed at the Residence , which is an apartment block next to the Central Inn hotel, that was contracted by Central Inn. The apartment was great, with a big swimming pool. However, the room service was bad, there was no...

Attended a 5 day workshop at Central Inn in October. The conference facilities are good for a large team conference and facilities are available if you are looking for a standard level conference facility for your team. Buffet was pretty good and meals and breaks came on time. Processing take aways could use a bit of improvement especially with the...

This is where we stated my first night in Uganda. I was pleasantly surprised as I expected Accomodations would be more difficult for me. We had breakfast and it was good. I would stay again after flying in.

A good quiet hotel with a pleasant small garden. Accommodation is good with large rooms en suite. There was hot and cold water in the shower. No A/C but they will provide a fan for you. The bath towels are large , more like bath sheets. TV in the room. The restaurant is open all day and the menu is...

In a quiet neighbourhood away from traffic, close to airport. Clean but small conveniences like electrical outlets are lacking. Most unhappy with terrible water pressure in showers and hot water that may or may not exist in room. Definitely better options in city.

We were late booking somewhere to stay before flying out, and our other two choices were full, so we ended up at the Central Inn, which is a bigger hotel and usually has vacancies. For the price, the Central Inn has seen better days. The plumbing in our bathroom sounded like a 747 taking off, we had to ask for...

The staff at the Central Inn were very helpful. When making the reservations, the response time was quick and they offered to pick us up from the airport. When we arrived after our long flight, it was wonderful to get to such a nice place. We also stayed the day before we left Uganda. Good food, nice rooms and very...

We stayed one night on our way back to SA and I had read the reviews so thought it would be reasonably priced and clean. The rooms are extremely basic and we all ended up with strange bite either from the carpets or bed bugs. This place is more like a hostel and at $55 a night I think is...

Hello, We regret the experience you had. We have a number of rooms that differ i.e. those with carpets & those with tiles. Next time kindly request for a room with tiles as some clients have allergies to carpets. however, we do appreciate client feed back & promise to keep bettering our services.

This is a very nice African hotel. The rooms are simple, but very clean and not a mosquito to be seen. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The food is descent. The free breakfast is simple, but filling. Free airport shuttle no matter what time of day. Would highly recommend if using the airport.

When you arrive to Entebbe airport it takes a quite long time before you are outdoors. After a long distance flight it is so nice to just travel a few more kms before hitting the pillow. Entebbe Central Inn is where we go with the group that will be travelling onwards the next day. This hotel is very simple. But...
