This hotel is near to the city centre, and at this time one of the safest places to stay in Bujumbura. There were reports of shooting almost every night while we were in the city, but never around the area of the hotel. The hotel people are very friendly, (and speak English) and also quite protective, being ready to give... More

I spent a night at Le Chandelier. The hotel is very conveniently situated, close to the shopping area, but far away enough to be quieter. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable, and good internet access was a plus. Staff were friendly and helpful and I had a good simple breakfast before departing. Check out took a bit of time....

This is a pleasant place to stay in central Bujumbura, very well placed for offices and so on. I stayed in a room with a balcony, then later after a trip up country I returned to a room without a balcony and that was really pretty good. You can and should negotiate the price - it should be possible to... More

I came here for a workshop and I found the place amazing. The staff were all great and helpful, especially Innocent and the two ladies at reception. Internet connection was perfect. The food variety the best ever. I was in room 18 and regret that I could not make use of the balcony due to limited timing. When we negotiated... More

I stayed at this hotel for 3 weeks. I was in room 18, and my colleague was in room 11. Both have beautiful balconies. These rooms cost a bit extra, but it's worth it (especially for a long stay). Staff are wonderful! No gym, but only a 10 minute walk from a lovely park where you can walk or run... More

The breakfast is exceptional including a fruit platter and soups. Great place for a workshop or a business stay conveniently located.

Hotel le Chandelier is conveniently located to many offices as well as shops in Bujumbura. The staff go out of their way to provide any help requested, the food is an excellent combination of Burundian with Continental dishes, and the servings are enormous. Rooms are large and comfortable for both working and resting. The first few days of my stay... More
