Very good 8.4 From 42 reviews

Very good 8.0
Checked in easily and quickly at 1 AM after late arrival at airport. Airport taxis are easy and charge between 10.000 and 15.000 framcs for trips into Kigali - I paid 15.000 at that time of night and was at the hotel 10 minutes later. Free breakfast is good with made to order omelets and great cappuccino and fresh juices with views over the city from 3rd floor terrace restaurant. Garden rooms are the cheaper rooms and are good value and spacious. Lots of hot water and good Wifi. Definitely cheaper if you are solo to book 1 person since the pruce goes up with 2 people or more. Note next door Zebra guesthouse has same price for 2 people so is a better option for couples. Location is good and you can walk to many places in an hour or less. Taxis also readily available. Recommended.

Poor 2.0
The Check In experience was always a propblem because the hotel puts the least trained staff on their night shift. This is the 3rd and final time. I will never stay in or recommend the hotel to anyone else. In fact we checked out early and moved to the MARRIOTT

Sad place
No shampoo or amenities. Dark and dingy. Front desk was supposed to send someone 3 different times and no one showed up. Sad place.

Poor 2.0
Run down
We were placed in an older building adjacent to the newer, nicer hotel. It was the “garden room” and was very old and run down.

This was my third stay at this property, it is like my home away from home. Big room, Awesome shower, friendly staff. The rooftop restaurant has not only great views but really good meals as well.
