This is a home away from home. The accommodation is basic, but feels like a home. Very comfortable bed, we had the balcony room overlooking the garden. It is an oasis in the bustle of Kampala. The peaceful atmosphere really comes down to the staff, who are kind and friendly and will do anything to make your stay welcome. Highly...

Inexpensive in comparison to other guest houses in the area - situated near to lots of excellent restaurants just outside centre of the city - good breakfast - lovely garden - room clean - hot water. All good so far. Just one suggestion - do not leave any personal items in the hotel as you may not find them there...

This is where we stay in Kampala. Not interested in the overpriced hotels in the middle of the city. This area has so much atmosphere and the staff at Shalom look after us so well. And we support a charity by staying here. Makes sense to me.

Staff very helpful makes beds every morning and changes sheets also and is very clean.. Really loved staying here night time was also lovely as the garden was a lovely place to sit and chill out with friends or family and listen to music or play games under the wonderful stars.. =) I stayed here in 2010 couldn't find 2010..

Staff are extremely kind and helpful and always have a smile on their faces. Food is good and amenities are also a bonus! Hot water available for a shower each...

This place is well named as it is a safe, quiet and peaceful place to stay in a city which can be noisy and chaotic at times. The staff was very kind and helpful. Unlike many similar priced places I had no problems with the room facilities. The bed was large and comfortable with an intact and clean mosquito net...

Razor wired compound with a man with a rifle peering through a hole cut in the steel doors that guard the entrance. Bland corridors lead up to the most basic of rooms. Two single beds, no wardrobes or furniture, apparently clean but worn and marked bedding underneath grey worn mosquito nets. Windows barred and too many mosquitoes to open them....

Dear Mark, Thanks for taking time to review our page and also for all the details that you have displayed about us. However, I will request to disagree with you on a few points that you raise which actually cause me to highly doubt if you really stayed with us or are choosing to damage our reputation owing to the...

I stayed in Shalom Guest House for multiple weeks and my experiences were generally positive. The rooms are spacious and clean. The staff are very friendly and helpful - it's really a pleasure to stay with them. I wish internet had been more stable (but that's the country, I guess) and the breakfast -- bread, jam or peanut butter, some...
