No. 5 Boutique Hotel is owned and operated by Uganda Exclusive Camps & Lodges, a company that specialises in providing high-quality accommodation in some of the country’s most thrilling destinations! This latest addition to the portfolio provides a superb stopover option in Entebbe as well as opportunities to explore the town and surrounds. Your stay is booked on a B&B or self-catering basis. When sharing a room with their parents, children aged 5–11 years incur a reduced rate – and youngsters aged 4 years and under stay for free!
ACCESS & LOCATION:
The hotel is accessed via 10 minutes’ road transfer from Entebbe International Airport. It’s situated in a serene suburb, within pleasant garden grounds.
ACCOMMODATION & FACILITIES:
Guest accommodation consists of ten rooms and five apartments. Of the rooms, five are doubles and five are twins. All have a chic contemporary look, and furnishings include bedside tables and lighting, a separate seating area, and ample storage space. Amenities comprise air conditioning, mosquito nets, flatscreen satellite television, tea-and-coffee station, safe, and access to Wi-Fi. Each room also has an en-suite shower room. The five apartments benefit from all the features of the rooms, in addition to an open-plan kitchen and an extra storey housing an additional bedroom and a lounge.
Most of the communal facilities at No. 5 are housed in a modern building and have the same style as the guest rooms and apartments. In the lounge, comfortable sofas and chairs are set up around coffee tables. The restaurant features chic individual tables and upright chairs, and it’s adjacent to the hotel’s well-stocked bar. This space is the venue for delicious breakfasts, lunches, and dinners, and staff are happy to advise on any accompanying wines. Other facilities comprise a gym, a spa, and a spacious swimming pool!
For many of our travellers, a stay at No. 5 will be a simple stopover before or after an international flight. Entebbe is the gateway town to the national parks of Bwindi Impenetrable, Queen Elizabeth, Rwenzori, Kibale, and Lake Mbura, as well as to Murchison Falls. However, if you have any spare hours, or you’re here for a longer stay, there are plenty of local attractions to enjoy. Entebbe itself is full of shops, markets, and eateries! It’s also very close to Lake Victoria, Africa’s largest lake, which offers wildlife viewing and scenic cruises. You could explore the botanical gardens too – these are home to the striking black-and-white colobus monkey and they host all sorts of events throughout the year. The Uganda Wildlife Education Centre is well worth a visit, as is Ngamba Island’s Chimp Sanctuary and Mabamba Swamp. Boat trips on the swamp are highly recommended for birdwatchers, as well as anyone seeking serene experiences during their stay here.
