Named after the British explorer, John Hannington Speke, who established the source of the River Nile, the Speke Hotel is the oldest hotel in Uganda. Built in the 1920s, it has maintained its colonial ambience but has been extensively renovated.
Located in the heart of Kampala, close to banks, shopping centres and the business district, the hotel has 50 air conditioned en-suite rooms with private balconies and modern luxury facilities as well as several themed restaurants, including Indian and Italian, and one of the best cocktail bars in Uganda.
The hotel also has conference facilities and a business centre. Horse riding is available at the Speke Equestrian Centre.
