The staff are all friendly, excellent and very accommodating. Ella, Noel and Eraste are first class and could not be nicer people.They went out of their way to make my stay enjoyable. Breakfast...

The staff were super friendly and helpful, arranging for our airport transfers and transportation to our meeting venue. The room was clean and cosy. With DSTV and free wifi. The pool looked so inviting, but I was unfortunately, not able to make good use of it. The breakfast was well done and the welcome "pure pineapple juice" was a delight.... More

The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. Communication was a little difficult at times, as we do not speak French and only a few of the staff spoke English but that was expected before arrival, since English is not generally taught in the schools. The hotel has a backup generator system, so power was quickly re-established when the expected... More

I arrived without my suitcase and the staff were great in offering me a range of toiletries to assist me. The hotel restaurant on the roof was great with excellent quality... More

This is the hotel to visit when you are in the great country of Burundi. Good work management, great ambience. I loved every moment of my stay at the hotel. Though its a francophone country, they have good command of English language and all was superb.
