Great hotel in Kigali
My friend recommended it and the best price was on Hotels.com. It’s clean, modern and comfortable with friendly staff. Not stuffy at all. Well situated in Kigali and a good base for exploring further afield. A nice lounge and garden to drink a coffee while chatting to your friends. The bar and restaurant are reasonably priced and food is good. Breakfast is plentiful.

Beautiful and quiet
The hotel is a quaint and cosy place with exceptional service. I absolutely loved the compound with its green spaces, there are many secluded areas one could just hang out, listen to music and read a book. Although it is small, I found it to be private and very comfortable. I absolutely loved my room, it was super clean and quiet. I got a hill view room, but unfortunately they were out of the ones with a balcony. I recomend the rooms with a balcony and will definitely get one of those on my next visit.
