i stayed at this hotel back in late august. rooms are worn out, getting hot water out of the shower is a long process. service is slow. it was hard communicating with the servers due to poor english. location is good though and the price is affordable.

Stayed at the Golf Hills six times now, using it as stop-overs as I travelled between Kigali, Musanze, Nyungwe, Akagera. It is a good place to use as you travel between the main attractions of Rwanda, and road access is good. The rooms are basic, but huge. If you get the right room, you will also have a huge balcony,... More

Excellent location and very quiet place. Staying at Golf Hills Residence is like you have never left your home. The personnel is very helpful and caring. Rooms are not big in size but very convenient. I advise potential visitors to prefer Room No.6 with private veranda with beautiful view.

We are a group of five (family and friends) and booked a single room, a double room and a twin room for our last night in Rwanda. We booked this place weeks ago and our guide confirmed the booking two times. When we arrived at the place, Franco, the front desk staff, told us that a guest requested to extend... More

Golf Hills Residence was my home away from home whilst visiting Kigali for 10 days in November. My room was very comfortable, breakfast was simple but delicious, the staff were incredibly attentive. Some would say that this hotel is too far out of town, but really everything is close in Kigali and I just found it to be a quiet,... More

Good value for money, about 15 minutes from the airport. Rooms are large and spacious, and relatively well maintained. Excellent service by staff, and a good breakfast included in my price. Hotel is about 5 minute walk to a supermarket, but anything more needs a 15 cab ride. Only 4 tv channels which is a bit disappointing, and the power... More

I stayed here for 6 nights and very much enjoyed the opportunity to interact with courteous, helpful staff. The location is in a quiet suburb about 12 minutes from downtown by car. The facilities are clean and comfortable and have a nice garden setting. The price is very good and includes a delicious breakfast buffet. My only critique was the... More

I highly recommend this hotel. I arrived in the evening and was greeted at the airport by a driver - the cab ride to the hotel is included in the hotel price! The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Food was excellent and the rooms were very clean and spacious. I felt very comfortable there! Definitely would go there again... More

We only arrived to the hotel late in the evening and left the next morning as part of our tour so it's hard to really say too much about this hotel. The room we stayed in was part of the second mansion/building (not the main one) and the room and bathroom was a little dated and didn't make us feel... More

First of all - like most of Rwanda - it is the people that make the experience great. Egide took our booking before and also checked us in - he did everything with a smile and great service. Also we used one of his recommended drivers called Faustine to take us around - a great guy, who was well priced,... More
