"Peaceful, welcoming home with brilliant food - great value!"

I stayed at Papaya for two weeks on a work trip to Kampala, and it was perfect. Florence and the girls are really welcoming and cater for your every need. My bed was huge and so comfortable. Meals were great. There is the option to self-cater, but the food was so delicious and such great value that I didn't bother. The portions are huge, and there are loads of tasty vegetarian options!
The location is also good. It is in a quiet area, but it didn't take long to get into central Kampala, especially with the great driver Florence recommended.
Thank you for providing such a relaxing and welcoming environment after my busy days of meetings, and at such great value!

"Welcoming, comfortable and delicious food"

Papaya is a wonderful place to stay - a haven in the bustling city of Kampala. Set off from the main roads, once in the gates you are treated to a warm family welcome. The rooms are incredibly spaciou… More

At Papaya we believe our guests should not just enjoy the spaces, but also well cooked food. We love good food and with many years of experience of cooking for family and friends, we are proud of what we serve to our guests. I am glad you liked the vegetarian part of our menu.

"Sweet Home"

This was my second stay at Papaya Holiday Home after a first stay in mid-2013. I made the reservation by mail.

Customers are treated with spontaneous and natural courtesy and simplicity. They make you feel at home. I felt like being a member of the PHH family.

My room was clean, with beautiful flowery curtains, white bedsheets and towels.

A gorgeous breakfast welcomes you when you get up in the morning. Portions are varied and so large that you find it hard to eat your lunch.

A splendid shade tree stands in front of the building, at the edge of a well maintained garden and from the balcony, you can enjoy a magnificent view of hills around and a peep of Lake Victoria at a distance on a sunny day.

The place is so secure, the staff so hospitable, and the rates so affordable that you cannot stay there once and not come again.

I am overwhelmed by your kind words. Papaya Holiday Home offers a different product ''Sweet Home'', and you have appreciated our Home away from Home atmoshpere. Florence (owner/manager)

"Friendly hosts, relaxing environment and comfortable accommodation made our stay very enjoyable."

the Papaya is conveniently located in a quiet and pleasant part of Kampala. The owner, Florence and her team provided excellent hospitality and nothing was too much trouble for them tn meeting the needs of their guests.

For guests wishing to 'eat in' the food is varied and tasty and the verandah is a good place to relax with good views across the city.

We are looking forward to our next visit to the Papaya.

Thank you for choosing Papaya Holiday Home, and for your appreciation of our services. Our staff were blessed by your stay. Thank you for inviting me to visit your group in Bath. We would love to welcome you back !
