Former Mamba Point Guest House reopens as Urban by CityBlue


(Posted 01st September 2014)

Following the opening of three CityBlue Hotels in Kigali / Rwanda between April and June last year has the first ‘Urban by CityBlue’ now opened in Kampala’s Nakasero suburb at the location of the former Mamba Point Guest House along Akii Bua Road.

After adding more rooms and remodeling the property is the ‘Urban’ now fully operational. Described as a small boutique hotel it is the fourth such property in East Africa with another one due to open in Nairobi / Kenya in 2015.

CityBlue has currently three brands, ‘Express by CityBlue’ a business traveler budget hotel, ‘CityBlue Hotel’ which appears to be their middle range brand and ‘Urban by CityBlue’ which falls into the boutique style category.

From additional information obtained is the hotel company planning to open another ‘Urban by CityBlue’ next year in Entebbe and an ‘Express by CityBlue’, also in Entebbe to serve business travelers seeking comfort at affordable tariffs. For more details on the company click on
