In 1858, John Hanning Speke came in search of the Source of the Nile.
Against the daylight ditty of birds flying lazily overhead, he glimpsed the gentle murmur of the Nile and giddily declared: “I have found it!”
A number of years later, his ecstatic declaration is still echoed by everyone who reaches Speke Hotel.Built in the 1920s, we are one of Uganda’s oldest and most regal hotels.
Ours is a magical merging of inspiration and architecture to spawn a hotel that is perfectly placed as the starting point for exploring Uganda's rich history.
Speke Hotel Kampala is situated at the heart of Kampala City, just 30 minutes’ drive from Entebbe International Airport.
Its grand entryway announces an elegant lobby which leads to 50 ensuite rooms that are masterpieces of design with soaring ceilings and wall-to-wall luxuries one would expect in a five-star hotel.
There are also several themed restaurants (including Italian and Indian) and one of the best cocktail bars in Uganda. Besides serving choice beverages, it also plays host to a variety of offerings in music, dance and distractions of a fun-filled nature.
You'll also love the convenience of our own off-street parking spot with banks, great shops and business centers minutes away.
Cozily stretched out along Nile Avenue, cool air flows through our relaxed and relaxing airy layout.
Speke Hotel holds an enduring place of honor in the history of Uganda, for it incarnates and projects the very hospitality shown by the people of Uganda.
