Set around a courtyard garden and pool, Urban by CityBlue Kampala is a true oasis of calm amidst the frenetic energy of Uganda’s capital city. With well appointed recently renovated rooms, Urban sits in one of the most prestigious districts in the city. The main building was once a family home, and the same sense of family awaits you when you stay.
Poolside you will find Café Mamba, a popular restaurant known for some of the best pizzas in Uganda fresh from the wood burning outdoor oven.
CityBlue was opened in January 2013 to bring a much needed mid-scale, international quality to a locally born hotel chain across sub-Saharan Africa.
Since then, the CityBlue team has built a reliable and passionate team of local and international individuals from the ground-up, instilling training, standards and a sense of family with three sub-brands to reflect the CityBlue genres: Urban by CityBlue, the boutique business offering with a fabulous restaurant; CityBlue Hotel & Suites, the true business hotel; and c3, a signature franchise added to the hotels of properties managed by third parties who reflect the chain’s values.
In less than four years, CityBlue is now appearing in the top ten list in terms of hotel development pipelines across Africa and continues to work with even more owners and local communities across the continent.
Meetings & Events
Whether it is a training session, meeting, or conference for business, or a birthday, anniversary or other celebration, CityBlue hotels can offer the space for you. In both Kampala and Kigali we have the ability to host conferences for up to thirty people.
Each hotel has large, professional, dedicated meeting rooms and event spaces. For dining needs, our Chefs are happy to make a special menu for you and your friends.
With 40 inch TVs with local and international channels in each room, the CityBlue hotel in Kamapla offers enough in-house entertainment if you wish to remain indoors in the luxury of your room. Free wi-fi available in all parts of the hotel also offers an opportunity for you to stay with your business and family when travelling to Uganda.
Ample parking space is provided free for all guests and a choice of restaurants offer cuisine of all kinds.
Our team stayed in the standard deluxe rooms and found the accommodation up to international standards. The clean and well designed toilets, comfortable beds, a dedicated balcony overlooking the swimming pool courtyard provided for a relaxed and comfortable stay. The food was excellent and the service staff were friendly and helpful. The answer to whether we would recommend this hotel to our fellow travellers from the Middle East is a resounding “YES”.
