Located in Kyovu, a short walk from the Presidential palace and several nice restaurants such as Le Pichet, Le Bistro and others. It is a very quiet and very safe area, you can walk down the street during the day and night. Downtown Kigali, safe as well, is only 15 minutes by foot. There you will find Bourbon cafe (kind...

I was extremely satisfied with this place considering the category it is placed in. Fantastic value, very accommodating staff and an amazing little restaurant. I had a late flight and everyone bent over backwards to make me comfortable while waiting.

I had a pleasant stay in the hotel. The ground floor rooms seem to be small and selected a room at the first floor. Its a no hastle place and could see a lot of foreigners staying there. This seems to be favourite of most of the travellers. The staff is very helpful, there's a restaurant in the guesthouse and... More

The location of this guesthouse is great. Walking distance to the city centre. The neighbourhood is very quiet, secure parking. Friendly staff. You can change money at reasonable rate. Rooms are small but clean. Sitting area outside the rooms, with views on the little but green garden. Wifi is working well. Breakfast is basic. Dinner is okay. Rates are on... More

We were visiting Iris on two occasions connecting to our flights. On both occasions we arrived late and were well taken care of by the staff. The rooms were clean, and there was enough hot water in the showers. The internet worked fine. So in all it was a good experience.

I had a business trip and i decided to spend my short time in this hotel. i like the fact that it is near the city but i was really disappointed with their services. The hotel's internet connection is very unstable and the food was not good at all plus untimely delivery was a really disappointment. Also the bed was... More

It is absurd that this guest house is being listed along side kigali known hotels. Our company booked a space to this hotel and they deceived as thatthis is a three star hotel. Everything looks old and the stuff were tired and the rooms are very little/small and the mattress are very hard. For those who are on a business... More

There's not much to add that other reviewers haven't already said. I personally thought the price was high for what you get, but I suppose that's Africa...Facilities are adequate and the table and chair on the veranda outside each room are nice -- though the curtains aren't terribly precise and if there are people about you may end up dressing...

We spent four nights at IRIS in February and had an excellent stay. The two bedroom apartment was very spacious, clean, and had all the amenities needed for a comfortable stay. Central location enabled access to all key attractions in Kigali including good restaurants within walking distance. Having a restaurant on premise is a great convenience. It really became quiet...
