Everything was right on time. The transport from and to the airport was very well organised. On the premises we always felt safe. We appreciated the privacy. Thank you florence for keeping the house so clean. The only thing that you should know: if you are not used to dogs it can be difficult because when we returned to jones' home after 10 pm we had to open the gate ourselves with the (friendly) dogs running free on the compound.
Otherwise the appartement is fitted with working household items. Also there is an a/c which was very nice in the first very hot nights. A washing machine is also available on request which made it much more comfortable for us travelling with small children. Thank you for your hospitality, Jones and staff! We would definitely recommend this place also for small families with young children.
A very lovely and cozy accommodation. The location was very good with nice surroundings. A quiet and calm place but still near to the city. Mr. Jones and his associates were very friendly and helpful. The pick-up and drop off from and to the airport were done preciously. Everything was even better than advertised.
We were invited for a complimentary breakfast by Mr. Jones in his wonderful terrace. He assisted to arrange for transportation to and from the city. He is a very nice and understanding guy. The place was very clean and well organized. Everything was in working order. Toilet flushes properly, nice hot shower and good water pressure. Fridge/freezer works. Toaster, combo gas/electric oven works. Just if this door between the sitting area and the bedrooms can be removed, it will be much better. I tried hotels in Kampala before, but this place is much more better and cheaper of course. I will sure stay there next time I will be in Kampala.
Thank you Mr. Jones for your hospitality and hope to see you again.
Thank you you very much for making me feel welcome from the beginning to the end. A self contained apartment in the upmarket area of Munyonyo. I lived in Kampala for three years and this was the quietest area I have ever known.
In the apartment were everything to make a stay great, well equipped with air con and DSTV and running hot water.
Jones is an intelligent, interesting and entertaining host who knows Uganda like the back of his hand and thank you for the breakfast entertainment!
Munyonyo is out of the city centre but five minutes walk from Speke resort making access to up market swimming and restaurants easy. Taxis and boda boda are plentiful and easy to get hold of.
The one negative is that the apartment has too much furniture making the lounge diner seem cramped but this is a small issue easily resolved.
Thank you Jones for making my 9 day stay warm, welcoming and excellent value.
I would use Jones again when next visiting kampala
Mr Kyazze was a wonderful host, very helpful even when I aarived late in the night he stayed up to give me directions to the home. The residence looked even much better than the pictures, clean, neat and beautifully.
We were very happy with this accomodation. We are aid workers in Tanzania and had to come to Kampala for some medical check ups. The location was very good for being able to drive into central Kampala and back with relative ease, and still be able to stay somewhere quiet, outside the city. We had everything we needed to cook for ourselves. It was also very nice to sit on the balcony upstairs for breakfast, etc. The DSTV satellite stations were good, as we don't have any tv in Tanzania, we were happy to catch up on the news. At first, the satellite stations didn't work but Jones was very helpful to assist us and the second night, after disconnecting and rescanning, the satellite stations were working. Jones also provided us with a wireless internet hub that we could use as wifi for our tablets. The internet service did run out on the third day, (in Uganda limitless internet is rare... People buy bundles like 2G, 5G, etc) so we must have used upbthe bundle. But we were leaving early the next day so that was okay. What I really appeciated was that it was nice and quiet at night to sleep. That is hard to find in Kampala, as there is usually a disco blaring with mega speakers somewhere in the distance. And the first day I could hear the ubiquitous blaring when we first arrived, but it went quiet in the evening, so there might be a noise control rule in this neighborhood. The last two nights there was no loud noise at all even during the day. As far as everything else.. It is all in working order. Toilet flushes properly, nice hot shower (the guest house has its own dedicated water heater) good water pressure. Fridge/freezer works.. Toaster, combo gas/electric oven works. The only negative thing was this is a miniature two bedroom place, which is fine, but it has too many doors! 7 or 8 that i could count... And it is really awkward shutting and closing doors to get into the other room.. Having said that, we would not hesitate to stay here again. We were also very grateful for the fresh fruit Jones gave us on our last night for us to use for our early breakfast the next day. He invited us to join him for breakfast.. But we were having a very early start. We reccommend this place for 2-4 people who want an alternative to hotel room and are on a budget. We didn't get to use the swimming pool at the nearby Hotel because it was raining the day we planned to go there, but it would have been a nice place to go and relax. We enjoyed the pizza at at nearby (in walking distance) place called Miki's and we bought our groceries at a "mini-mart" next door to the pizza place. Across the street from there we also had a good meal at the coffee/bistro place called...
This guest house was lovely. Very cosy and well maintained. Dr. Jones was exceptionally helpful when we had our bag stolen complete with bank cards, phones and passports. He rescheduled both his and his assistants timetables to drive us to police stations, embassies etc. Lent us a phone to use and even offered to loan us money if we needed.
He also had us to his home for a delicious lunch, took us with him to the local theatre and even arranged a cooking lesson for me when I expressed an interest in local foods.
The staff were all very friendly and the grounds and view are delightful.
We would happily return.
