We were slightly disconcerted to find the entrance to this property along a dirt road - but don't worry - neighbourhood seemed fine, and the views over the city are just gorgeous. We walked up to a restaurant at a shopping centre (took about 20 mins - all uphill!) then returned and spent a very pleasant couple of hours playing...

We used Step Town as our base for a week in Kigali during our school trip. John - the manager - was extremely helpful and efficient in helping me to organise everything beforehand. The rooms were clean, safe and nicely presented. There was hot water 24 hours a day. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. The restaurant service was...

Airport pickup charge is $20, and is a 15 - 20 minute ride. Every room in Step Town is large, adequate and comfortable if not luxurious. Internet connection is good throughout. The food while not great can best be described as edible, plentiful and authentic. Its served in a quaint dining room with the TV usually broadcasting the football or...

We stayed here one night when arriwing to Rwanda. Conveniently located close to the airport. The manager, John , with his staff picked us up from the airport with a small cost. The chef prepared us a very good meal in the evening. Very friendly staff, clean, quiet rooms, reasonable prices. Suite available!

Stayed there with my wife for 3 nights for our honeymoon. When we arrived in Kigali, John (manager) was waiting for us at the departure gate, he was really kind and did a little tour of Kigali on our way to the motel. Once we arrived, we found that our room had been upgraded to a honeymoon room, which was...

We had a lovely time at the motel. The staff are more than accommodating. It was our first night in Rwanda and our credit card company emailed us saying there was an issue (even though we let them know we were traveling). Not having a phone, we asked the front desk for help. They went out and got a pre-paid...

The room standard match the medium price and are perfect for those who don't need the luxury of the 4-5 star hotels. Staff is friendly, helpful and gives you the feeling of being at home. English is not a problem and everything is taken care of very properly. Food was always fresh and very tasty - enjoy the breakfast sitting...

Located a minute from the city centre, it has a comfortable home environment overlooking the beautiful hilly landscape of Rwanda. The staff is also amazing especially Yves welcomed us very well and shared a lot of insights to our new found love, Rwanda.

Cockroaches in rooms! And rooms were very small did not enjoy my stay at all. The staff were very ignorant and spent more time chatting then doing what was asked from them. The only good thing was that the bed was very comfy otherwise would not recommend. Other hotels in the area are much better
