Hotel is located in a good area with easy access to city center and close to main roads. Check-in for me and my colleague was reasonably efficient and quick. It seems the rooms are different since my colleague got quite a small room whilst I entered a spacious room with lots of unused space. Room itself was spacious, TV had...

The hotel has a weird mix of really good rooms and some horrible ones the size of a closet!! The staff are not very helpful so make sure you view your room first to ensure you are not getting ripped off as they cost the same.

Very decent hotel, price correct, very clean, even though the bathroom could be better. The rooms are quite big. Internet works perfectly, depending on the floors your is situated, best on first floor. The staff is pleasant. Nice restaurant with local and international food, giving to the swimming pool. A local band playing at nights. However a gym is missing.

I am 50 - 50 about this hotel. The location is very nice just a walking distance from city centre. The staff are really nice and i enjoyed their customer service, they go all out. The food is nice when you order a la carte. The breakfast menu i would say it is okay, nothing fancy. The thing with this...

Stayed here with my boyfriend for one night as a base to visit some of the sites in Kigali. Had a spacious room (standard room was plenty big enough) with double bed. Air conditioning worked well, shower had good pressure and was always hot. Bed was comfortable and very clean. Tv and wifi worked well. The staff were all very...

I joined a group of 9 people after a business meeting. West near the pool and ate from the buffet. The food was really, really good! The grilled goat and chicken was truly excellent. My only complaint/concern is the capability of the service. One of Rwandese friends ordered fish fingers and had chicken wings delivered. That is my only poor...

I stayed here for a week, and have mixed feelings. First of all, I had some problems with booking and payment, but it was not really the hotel's fault. However, they could have been a lot more friendly and helpful when we tried to sort it out. I also really missed having a gym, and I think the service in...

As the title states, everyone on staff here is so sweet and attentive. I haven't experienced this high level of customer care in two years of living in Rwanda. The buffet is really wonderful and full of variety. One night the buffet included a pool-side barbecue which was a nice surprise. The rooms are average if compared to large-scale international...

I'm always disappointed when I write a average review for a hotel with great staff. I'll start with the positives: I hosted a business retreat for 13 participants who also stayed at the hotel. On the plus side: The staff were attentive, friendly, and eager to please - especially the reception staff. The air conditioning units in the rooms (conference...
