The wireless was good; a couple of power cut but not for long, the same goes for water. The staff was wonderful and always helpful, they helped with everything and aim to please, anything I wanted...

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.

The hotel is well designed and feels relaxing the minute you walk in. the swimming pool is clean and set well. Location is a little from the centre of town but there is a taxi rank almost outside and the area itself is safe and pleasant for a walk. My room was clean, big with its own terrace, although the...

Very charming boutique-style hotel. The staff is super-friendly, Eraste, Chris helpful and always pleasant, Odile studies literature so you won't get tired chatting with her. Small, but nicely attended swimming pool. Food was very good. Power went out a lot. Overall I am looking forward to going back on holiday.

Well, stayed here for 9 days as part of a work trip. It's located down a side road close to the (HUGE) American Embassy. Staff are friendly and welcoming (and speak good English if your French is limited), and the rooms spacious and clean. Roof top bar/restaurant is pleasing, with views over the town (and Lake Tanganyika is also visible).... More

This little "resort" hotel, seemingly very basic on arrival, provided everything on looks for on a business trip, comfortable room, excellent food, smiling and helpful staff. Not many facilities, apart from a small swimming pool, but reasonable Wi-Fi, and satellite TV. I would be very happy to stay here again.

I absolutely enjoyed my stay. For the price, I think it was a great deal. The room was spacious. Their food was delicious. Most of all I loved their coffee -- great tasting coffee. I recommend this hotel.

I have actually hesitated to comment on my recent stay with Dolce Vita Resort in Bujumbura. The reason is not that I am concerned about facing the manager at my upcoming next visit. No, the reason was merely of egoistic nature, but I have decided to resist this dark force. The truth is, this hotel is a pearl that any... More
