Located on a small hill the hotel provides the comfort you deserve after work. Entrance to hotel and lady stature attracts your attention. The swimming pool you see over the balcony from your room attracts even non-swimmers.

They all have great views, either overlooking the city/lake, the...

I had checked in some other hotel earlier but the services were too bad there so I changed over and stayed at this City Hill Hotel. The Rooms are good with Balcony to enjoy your evenings. Since it is hot and humid in Bujumbura, the AC in the Room was very refreshing and absolutely silent. This is one of the...

For 70$ a single room (it is 90$ but you can negotiate the price) you will get Room+breakfast, the hotel has Pool + small Gym, that is a good budget hotel, they can improve on the cleanliness in the rooms (bed sheets), the rooms are small. internet is ok, mobile network is poor in the rooms, on the other hand...

I stayed here while working in Bujumbura for a week. It is a new hotel and most things function well. The power comes and goes a lot but air con etc starts again itself when power is back on.

Given the level of development in Burundi, this is a pleasant and decent hotel. The bedroom and bathroom are both very basic, but everything (like air conditioning and the water) worked most of the time. There must be about 10 different WiFi networks throughout the hotel, each with a different password. I got WiFi in parts of the restaurant, but...
