Overview of Hotel No. 5

The upscale, boutique Hotel No. 5 is the ideal respite to either begin or end your adventure through Uganda. Located in the pleasant suburb of Entebbe, there’s no better place to replenish and refresh after a long flight or a week of gorilla trekking and game drives.

Perfect for an overnight stay, Hotel No. 5 affords every creature comfort and pre-empts all needs. Spa treatments, poolside lounging, top-tier dining and modern gym facility ensure that your short stay is comfortable. The quaint, luxury rooms exude an air of tranquillity, aided by the balcony views overlooking the lush garden and glistening pool, providing a calm atmosphere in which to fully relax.

The small town of Entebbe sits on the shores of the majestic Lake Victoria. Hotel No. 5 makes it easy to explore on foot or by ‘bodas bodas’ (local motorbike). Filled with craft markets and local tailor shops, it’s the perfect point to pick up a few souvenirs to commemorate your travels. You might not go on game drives, but that doesn’t mean you won’t see any wildlife. Visit the Uganda Wildlife Education Centre and the Ngamba Island Chimp Sanctuary to get up-close to chimpanzees or take a cruise down the Mwamba swamp to spot the elusive shoebill bird. And of course, you can’t leave Entebbe without taking a sunrise or sunset cruise on the lustrous lake, watching the first or last rays of light on the horizon.

    Luxury Double Room

    Putting the 5 in 5-star luxury, Hotel No. 5 offers ten quaint and comfortable upscale rooms. Waking up is a glorious affair, as large windows bathe the room in natural light, with the gentle warmth of the sun washing over you as you relax on the four-poster bed, entertained by your favourite show playing on the flatscreen TV. Make yourself a cup of coffee or tea, open the sliding door to allow in the crisp air of the morning, and have a peaceful moment of reflection on the balcony, greeted by picturesque views of the hotel’s lush garden and glistening swimming pool.

    General Facilities

    When staying at Hotel No. 5, even if just for one night, your every need and want is catered to. Don’t want to miss a workout while on holiday? Get your blood pumping in the gym, which boasts a picturesque view of the pool and lush lawn to keep you motivated throughout your set. Need some downtime after or before your long flight home?

    Swimming pool


    Cream walls and white furnishings coupled with a colourful wall mural and a great view of the lush garden bring a touch of class to every meal when dining at the hotel’s restaurant. Guests indulge in a versatile menu bursting with flavour, paired with an international wine list in a spacious, airy setting filled with contemporary décor. A balcony overlooking the pool area offers an alternative option when wanting to dine outdoors. Make proper use of the outside space with a gin and tonic or Belgian beer, specialties of the cocktail bar, to properly end of the day as you watch the sunset from the balcony.
