Large, clean rooms
Nice, clean, large rooms with big bathrooms. Never saw anyone in the pool! But a great place to relax and eat. Wifi was good. Only problem was the loud music from the poolside area at night until 10pm so if you need to sleep before then and are sensitive to noise, perhaps avoid this hotel

Staff was very good. Internet acceptable. There is NO gym at the hotel despite what is advertised online. Pool is tiny. Location ok but no easy access to shopping, restaurants by foot.

Surpricingly cosy hitten gem
Great room, Great food and service. Unfortunately my stay was shadowed by the fact that I lost my phone in the restaurant and nobody could find it.

Nice location, good stay
We had a good two nights at Urban in Kampala. The location was on a quiet street, which was very nice compared to other neighborhoods in the city. The hotel staff replied quickly to emails and arranged a driver to pick us up at the airport. He was more expensive than some other drivers who were recommended to us but the ease of the hotel booking for us was worth it. The restaurant at the hotel was fine for a late dinner and breakfast each day was a nice buffet with eggs cooked to order. The rooms were fine - a little water damage in the bathroom above the shower, but otherwise clean. Appreciated the 4 bottles of water daily.

A great mid-market hotel
A great place to stay. Not much from the outside but rooms surround a lovely internal courtyard. Rooms simple, comfortable and clean. Service always prompt and friendly. Food not at all bad.
