We stayed overnight and we were glad we weren’t rebooked on our return home whole waiting for our flight home. The hotel staff wasn’t that friendly. The room was so so. The shower water was cold. The food was average. We had to take our heavy luggage up flights of stairs. No assistance. The garden was pretty though.

Response from Nkuringo, Owner at Papyrus Guesthouse
Responded 27 Oct 2019
Kim we thank you for staying with us at Papyrus and for taking time to review us. Our showers are powered by solar and it takes sometimes during the rainy season 5mins to get the hot water through otherwise its just a warm shower and during the briefing this information is shared. In regards to you carrying your bags the stairs - during check out we ask the clients to call the reception when ready with luggage so we send someone to come assist you BUT you opt to come down with your bags without calling for help. We have spoken to our Staff and they are always attentive to clients and they also had chat with you and thought you had lovely stay.

We stayed at Paptus Guesthouse upon getting to Entebbe before flying out the next morning, and as a stop over before we left at the end of our beautiful Uganda experience. Both stays were wonderful! Our room was great, the food was also great, and the staff was very accommodating. And the gardens of the Guesthouse were Beautiful! Would highly recommend.

Hi cyndiLair, Thank you for this kind review. Papyrus Guest House close proximity to the airport welcomes most clients to Uganda and is ideal for relaxing before bidding Uganda farewell. We are elated that you enjoyed both your stay at the guest house and look forward to hosting you again!

We had the pleasure of staying at Papyrus Guest House for an evening following a late arrival of 10pm at Entebbe Airport. We were collected by a lovely man from the airport and after a 10 minute drive we reached the guesthouse. Upon arrival we were greeted by teddy whom I had been in regular contact with from the confirmation of my booking onwards. Drinks were complimentary whilst we were briefed and taken through our itinerary. Wake up times were discussed and we would leave the following morning after breakfast. Rooms were cosy with a great mosquito net. Fans that were provided helped to ensure the room remained cool and also helped to keep mosquitoes away. Guards patrolled the main gates through night so there is no need to feel threatened at all. There was a variety of options for breakfast and check in for our aerolink flight was made easy with the guesthouse providing an E-ticket.

Nice and close to the airport Only stayed one night but was impressed by standard of room. Comfortable beds. Good food especially the steaks. The staff were great, friendly and helpful. Despite being so close to the town and airport it was quite and the gardens are nice.
