When I reached Kampala on April 5, workers were busy demolishing the building which contains Motel Rome and Hotel Fiance, which I found disappointing because they were praised as some of the best Shoestring accomodations.
Panorama Lodge on Buggala Island is now called Panorama Cottages. The prices are UGX 60,000/80,000/100,000 according to the size of the cottages (though after bargaining we got a cottage for UGX 50,000). The big cottages have TVs. The cottages are very nice and clean, with big beds and mosquito nets. Hot water is supplied on request and the breakfast that’s included in the price is very good. Electricity is provided from a generator between approximately 7pm and approximately 11pm.
