Acholi Ber Country Hotel

You are Here: › Acholi Ber Country Hotel

I have been a regular visitor to Gulu for almost eight years now including having lived there for a month. I have stayed a number of places prior to the opening of the Acholi Ber Country Hotel. And if you're looking for a hotel in Gulu that offers the best quality (without sacrificing comfort or small luxuries), then look no further!

The rooms are well kept as is the hotel in general. Staff are always cordial and willing to bend-over backwards to accommodate you.

I looked all over Gulu (nearly every hotel) and this place was without a doubt the best. You don't have to be a penny pincher to see the value here either.

All rooms are completely self contained and very close to western standards.

- Best price you will find in Gulu for the size of room and location. (Price is negotiable for longer stays). Mark (the manager) is always willing to negotiate.

- Big and spacious rooms. If you can afford approx $18.50/ night, then go for the rooms with a balcony--however Thursdays, Fridays and some Saturdays can be noisy, so bring some ear plugs, or go join em!

- Friendly service...All staff I have encountered is friendly and helpful. I don't care what hotel you go to, there will always be one staff member that is disgruntled; I've yet to find one here.

The Acholi Ber Hotel is hands down the best hotel in Gulu. The price can't be beat and the even better reviewed hotel's room don't compare.

The rooms are new, freshly painted, all have fans and a small desk along with lovely big full sized beds and clean linens.

The breakfasts are basic but good. You can ask for them to make an omelet or fried eggs if you want.

The room rates are 25,000 USh for a room without a porch and about 40,000 USh with a porch.

Eunice the housekeeper is totally amazing! Friendly, happy, willing to do laundry for 500 shillings a piece, always happy to make more chapati in the mornings and bring up hot water for tea to your room if you're working.

Mark the hotel owner is very nice and agreeable but not very organized when it comes to bookings. (more on that later).

He will however whip his staff into shape if they are being too slow or not doing their job. He's very friendly and helpful though.
