Places to stay in Gulu
Our house is 15 walking minutes and 5 minutes by BodaBoda (Motor Bike Taxis) from the city centre. We are living on a quiet compound with 4 houses
Our apartment makes you feel at home in a minute. Feel free to use the kitchen with gas cooker, fridge, smoothie maker, water boiler and all facilities you need and to chill in the living room and on the veranda. Your comfy, private bedroom is 12 square meters big with a spacious wardrobe, a 1,20x2m bed for 1 or 2 persons and if needed we can offer you another mattress. One wonderful thing I love is that we can enjoy hot showers because of the water heater in the bathroom. We, Charlie and Mimi, are a mixed couple (Uganda / Germany), living in our beautiful house in Gulu, Uganda to work with children, e.g. children with disabilities, children who are living on the streets and orphans. Charlie, as a local, can give you many tips and connections for what and where to go in northern Uganda. We also have our own gym which costs only 5k (1,50€) per day :)
We are living on a quiet, wall fenced compound with four apartments. So you can chill outside without being disturbed and have enough space for parking. 2 dogs are keeping us safe.
  • When in Gulu, then Mimi and Charlie's home is the place you should stay. You're not only getting a spacious and clean private room including a comfortable bed, you're getting the feeling home from home as well. Both have been reachable by phone all the time, Charly picked me even up from the bus station and they provided me with breakfast and coffee in the morning as well. The bathroom is clean and has a nice and warm shower, too. The compound is safe and guarded by two friendly dogs you can also hang out with if you're not allergic :D One of the most important things were all the local advises which I got plenty of. From directions, to suggestions where to go out all the way to where to go if you need to replace something and what to pay for the things everywhere. It made me feel so well there that I extended my stay and will definitely come back when visiting Uganda again. Again, go here if you want to have a great base to explore beautiful Gulu and the whole north of Uganda.

  • Couldn't have asked for a better start to my time in Uganda. A month and a half later and my review is still exactly the same 🌻

    Ruby2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely lovely experience with Mimi and Charlie so far. Great communication, they helped me from before I arrived in Uganda to picking me up in Gulu and helping me to settle in. I couldn't have felt more at home, they know just how to make you feel welcome and comfortable in a new city. The house itself is a sunny bungalow in a safe and friendly neighborhood. I've had such a great stay I've booked for another month! You will find real friends in Mimi and Charlie :)

    Ruby2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • I loved staying at Mimi's. Charlie was an amazing host! He came and found me in town to make sure I got there, cooked a great breakfast and made sure everything was satisfactory. I highly recommend staying here!

    Emily2019-12-03T00:00:00Z
  • Mimi was super helpful in messages before my visit and then Charlie was very welcoming and helpful as well during my stay! Thanks!

    Emily2019-12-02T00:00:00Z
  • I don't know where to start. Mimi and Charlie are perfect hosts. It is hard to find a place like this. We felt home right from the beginning. They are very welcoming, friendly, warm, funny and open people. The 2 days went too fast by. I'm sure you can't find a better place to stay in Gulu. Thank you for having us.

    Julia2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • I have been staying and I am also going to stay at Mimi's and Charlie's home for my entire stay two months in Gulu, just because it's the best!!! :) Mimi and Charlie have rather become my roommates than being my airbnb hosts. If you are looking for a quiet and cozy home to stay in Gulu this is definitely the place to be!

    Maike2019-08-08T00:00:00Z
  • Mimi and Charlie are the best! They are a super nice couple and open to everyone they meet. I already felt at home after the first day staying with them. I highly recommend to stay at their apartment :)

  • Denis place is at a perfect location, and close to all the lovely restaurants and cafés. The neighborhood is nice and safe,and although it’s a lively neighborhood the apartment is very quiet. Hassan and Denish were super hosts and very helpful since the beginning, available at all times whenever I had any questions. I had a great stay! Would absolutely recommend to stay there!

    Karoliina2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Really nice, spacious place and incredibly well located. Hassan was very kind, good-humoured and patient, even helping us immediately when we forgot the keys. Wine store right in front is a plus!

    Sally2020-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • Great location and friendly hosting by Hassan. Thanks!

    Catherine2020-01-27T00:00:00Z

    Kim2019-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • A great place at the very downtown though quiet at night. Very good for those used to off the hotels standards and those looking to mingle a bit. Highly recommended. Thanks Hassan!

    Quino2018-12-04T00:00:00Z
  • The place was great, clean room and access to kitchen & living room. Hassan has been amazing in welcoming me and making sure I had everything I needed. There is a very nice garden, amazing for great conversation with Denis, Hassan and other guests. Thank you for everything!

    Eloïse2018-05-14T00:00:00Z
  • I had a very nice time at Denis place. I felt very welcomed and the place was nice and clean. It was a great location in the middle of town. I was hanging out with Hassan. He took me to interesting places I never would find witout him. I hope to be back soon.

  • Staying with Okullooyere was a great experience. We were very happy to meet such a kind and nice person and have actually become good friends since our stay. In fact it was my second time staying at his place and each time I enjoyed it very much.

    Bleen2019-03-16T00:00:00Z

    Come and enjoy one or all four private rooms centered around a courtyard with a mango tree at its hearts. A lounge area and kitchen are available for you, with separate shower / WC facilities. This secure property is situated 2.5 miles from Gulu town centre and has ample private parking. As owners of the family run eateries (The Kitchen & CoffeeHut) in town, we are happy to provide take-away meals (breakfast, lunch & dinner) from our establishments upon request.
    The space offers a modern home in a rural village setting, ample secure and well maintained grounds suitable as a retreat for rest and relaxation, and a child and family friendly fun space.
    Our home is set within the idyllic village of Aworanga, in and amongst a mango tree orchard with interspersed homesteads that form a neat community. Spears of sunlight dart through the thick lush greenery of the tree tops, that are home to a host of bird life, whose chirping greets each and every morning.
  • We spent a lovely week enjoying the quiet and serenity of Tom’s lovely space. Situated just outside Gulu town, the space is a self-contained courtyard with a living room, kitchen, bathroom and 4 separate sleeping quarters. We found the open air nature of the place to be perfect for our 3 small children, who could play and ride their bikes freely in the courtyard in the morning and evening hours. We also had access to the large yard, seating area, and swings, which the children loved. Everything is there that you need, dishes and kitchen amenities are more than enough to cook your own meals, or if you like you can pop into town easily to hit up one of Gulu’s excellent restaurants. All of it was above expectation, especially the warm and generous hospitality of our hosts. We will definitely be back.

    Casey2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Tom’s place just a hair outside downtown Gulu was lush, green, clean and stylish. There are four bedrooms opening to an interior courtyard with beautiful plants. The kitchen is lovely having everything you might need and more. There is a stylish, authentic living room with a dining table and chairs, couch and chairs in sitting area. I am unsure if the cable was working. I tried to turn it on but turned it off when nothing seemed to happen. The directions from on AirBnb app and from Tom himself were very sparse and we got lost. A great boda guy helped us find the house which is fenced and extremely large. Don’t stay in a bland, generic Gulu hotel; Stay with Tom! (Note: the bathroom is communal for all bedrooms to share. )

    Gina2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent hospitality, extra clean environment, privacy and prompt assistance.

    Xanne2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • This is the absolute best place to stay in Gulu. The pictures do not do the property justice! The grounds and natural beauty are stunning! Such a beautiful and tranquil place to relax. The home is immaculately clean. Great for group travel as the rooms offer privacy but there is ample common space to socialize, like the living room and patio. Huge kitchen to prepare meals. Tom and Barbara are incredible hosts. Very open and timely with communication. I HIGHLY recommend staying here! Great value. Perfect for business or vacation travel.

    Janell2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • A great place! A bit outside from time, but calm, big and beautiful! The host is really great, always there and helping when there are problems!

    Al2019-08-10T00:00:00Z
  • Nice place just outside Gulu town. Great value.

    Michael2019-06-28T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great location, my second stay. And if you're lucky, you even get a local "upgrade", an opportunity not to miss! Find out for yourself! ;)

    Set in a quiet suburb of Gulu; urban enough to enjoy the town amenities, rural enough for a taste of the village. Our guest rooms are set in a traditional hut with a twist of the modern- a flush toilet and shower. You will enjoy lovely sunsets, open spaces, chirping birds and the distant rumble of trucks headed to Sudan. We use solar lighting and spend many balmy nights watching the stars and telling stories around a bonfire.

  • HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! ABOVE OUR EXPECTATIONS :-) The nicest thing about Fort Baker was the friendliness and hospitality of the staff. Sometimes hotels in Africa can be a bit bossy but not these guys; they were the kindest, sweetest and most generous people our group has ever encountered while travelling! The cleanliness is 5 stars and the African-Themed decor was very festive. The breakfast included freshly squeezed fruit juice which is an exceptional touch. Water pressure, showers and toilets were top notch. Ask for Walter or Angela :-) 5 STARS!
