    Kigali Layover
    Decent option near KGL airport. Restaurant was a poor value with very slow service. Room was comfortable, mostly clean. Quick and efficient airport transfer, so I will stay here again!

    Very nice overnight transit stay
    I stayed here during an overnight layover. This hotel is very comfortable, and the staff members are kind and welcoming. The room was very comfortable, with high quality bedding that was perfect for a nice night's rest. The bathroom amenities were generous, and breakfast, that was included in the room price was copious and generous. The hotel shuttle was convenient and the driver was very timely - already in place even though my flight arrived a little early. A very nice stay!

    Bad Experience Despite Nice Cosmetics
    I’m not in the business of writing bad reviews, but this was not a good stay for me. Remember, for context, this is a luxury hotel near the airport. First, there was a very loud band playing on or near the property. It was a Friday night, but that’s still not ideal for an airport hotel. Band played past 11 PM. The power went out in my room TWICE. The first time, I politely called to have it fixed and also asked to have a room change given the power/band. The power was restored quickly, fine. I waited for a room change. They finally called about two hours later, offering a different room. I declined, which I admit was my fault, but two hours after a complaint is lodged to offer a different room? I finally go to bed, but the power is out AGAIN when I wake up (luckily, a battery powered phone alarm saved me from missing my flight). I call down to the front desk at 5:30 AM to come fix the power again. No answer from them. I am now showering and packing in the dark. That’s a terrible stay at ANY hotel, but it’s very, very bad at a luxury hotel catering to business travelers near the airport. I will not stay again.

    One Night in Kigali
    We only were staying at the hotel for one night, but the service was great! They picked us up right from the airport on time and checked us in quickly. The beds were comfortable and the rooms well appointed. After an evening out, it was so nice to come back to a snack of fruit and treats. The wifi was decent and the view from the rooms was quite nice. The guy who picked us up also helped with bags and gave lots of good recommendations about what to enjoy in Kigali. The downside is that although you are near the airport somewhat, you definitely need to take a cab to get anywhere good in town. The hotel was very helpful in calling a cab for us, but I believe it was over priced. There isn't too much nearby, but the hotel was also having an event, so if you aren't trying to see the city, that could be fun. Our trip concluded with breakfast which was delicious--great spread of meats, breads, fruits, juices, and an omelette bar.
