Uganda’s capital city is home to country’s first Hilton

Kampala, the capital of Uganda, has seen its hospitality stock rise with the arrival of the country’s first Hilton-branded hotel.

The Hilton Garden Inn, Kampala is conveniently located only an hour’s drive from Entebbe International Airport and in the middle of Kampala’s Kololo neighbourhood, across the road from the British High Commission.

There is plenty to do for both business and leisure travellers in the hotel’s immediate vicinity, and the Acacia mall, Uganda Golf Course and Museum are all within walking distance of the property.

A host of firsts for Hilton in Kampala

As well as being the first Hilton property in both Kampala and Uganda, the Hilton Garden Inn, Kampala is also making waves for a variety of other firsts it is heralding.

It is the first hotel in Uganda to have full disability access to the guest rooms and common areas, a requirement of Hilton International’s brand standards.

It is also one of the first high-tech hotels in Uganda, as Hilton’s platform and systems allow guests to make a reservation via Hilton’s mobile app and then check-in and get room access independently using a digital key.

Each of the hotel’s 96 guest rooms has been generously designed at 25 sqm and includes comfortable Serta beds, an HDTV, complimentary Wi-Fi, work desks with ergonomic Herman Miller chairs and complimentary remote printing, making it easy to work from your room.

The general manager of the Hilton Garden Inn Kampala, Sanjeev Tiwari, said, “I am delighted to be opening the first hotel under the Hilton portfolio in Uganda. We are bringing not only a household name in the hospitality world to the market, but a modern hotel with light, airy accommodations and bright service that will deliver a fresh and affordable experience for both business and leisure visitors to the city.”
