I was staying in Uganda to work at a research station (NaCRRI) in Namulonge. The location AND the amenities available at Soho really can’t be beaten. Staying in the city is a lousy option because it is so far away. Joe is a fabulous host! He is very friendly, gave me lots of good advice, drove me to the city once so I could see a doctor and even helped me by getting me a bunch of groceries and other supplies for my >3 week stay. Thanks also to Humphrey, who cares for the property and the tenants, for being so extremely helpful! Lastly, thanks to the friendly dogs for hanging out by my porch and keeping me company!

We are a group of three who totally enjoyed the week’s stay at Soho Greens. Beautiful lush green garden, tasteful art on the yard and nicely furnished apartment with wifi, two bedrooms, kitchen and warm shower exceeded our expectations. (Light sleepers might not like the friendly dogs barking in the night yet a pair of ear plugs will sort the problem.) Joe is a perfect host. He collected us from our Entebbe guest house, showed us Kampala and took us to the bus station for our early hour departure to Nairobi. He even got the bus tickets to us since we were too busy with our project in Kyanja. Humprey, the caretaker was also very nice and helpful. The location worked very well for us since our activities were mainly in Kyanja, Ntinda and Masulita village (outside Kampala). There is a public transportation nearby if you need to go to the city. The ATM and major supermarkets are in Ntinda (about 5 km) yet water and other beverages, street food and fruits are sold not far from the place. Thank you so much, Joe! We are already planning to return to Soho Greens!

I loved staying at SoHo Greens Apartments. Joe is the perfect host, who communicates often and in a way that always puts the visitor at ease. The space has a lovely yard, and being an art aficionado, Joe even has an on-site art gallery with authentic African art. The neighborhood is somewhat north of Kampala, but there is easy public transportation, and the out-of-the-way location makes for quiet, calm evenings.

I have been in Uganda a couple of times before this visit and compared to my stay at a Hotel this was by far much better, Joe was a great host and he tried to make my stay as comfortable as possible. I will be staying next time I visit Uganda for sure!

Joe was a great host and we felt safe and welcome in this home. The house is located in a quiet neighborhood. The apartment is located on beautiful grounds and it is well furnished and spacious. The caretaker Humphrey is very attentive and responsive to requests. I would highly recommend staying here my friends and I really enjoyed our stay.

Joe was extremely welcoming: very helpful and efficient in giving directions to the apartment, and in making sure we had everything we needed. The apartment itself is nicely furnished, spacious, with a beautiful garden tended to by the lovely Humphrey. We enjoyed playing with their dogs and relaxing in the peaceful compound. The apartment is a little while from central Kampala (20 minutes or so), but not very hard to find or get to.

Soho Green Apartments was the perfect place for our research team to stay while we visited NaCCRI in Namulonge. It took us 15 minutes each morning instead of an hour or more from Kampala. The property is clean and the furnishings are great! Most importantly, it is safe. Night guard and the adorable dogs make it easy to rest and relax. Joe was amazing and cooked the team breakfast on our last day and Humphrey, the caretaker, was so so so helpful with all our needs. I was also impressed that Joe called me in Australia to verify our booking and clarify our needs. This place is a hidden gem- loved it and will be back again soon. Thank you!

We have been staying at Soho for over a month now and we love it here! Joe and staff are wonderful! They are a delight to be around. I am staying with 3 of my children and the property is very child friendly, with lots of room for the children to play and even a swing set that my children have spent hours on. This location is convenient, with lots of places to buy food. I highly recommend Soho!

Ett suveränt ställe att bo på. Snyggt och städat. Har de mesta man behöver. En fantastiskt trevlig trädgård. Mycket trevlig värd, som fick en att känna sig hemma på en gång och var det något man behövde hjälp med, ordnades det med detsamma. Har man inga problem med att åka en liten stund in till stan (vilket går smidigt) så är detta ett jättefint boende där fördelen är omgivningen med trädgård, det är lugnt, slipper buller och det är trevliga kvarter att promenera i.
