I stayed at Golf Hills Residence last summer. I chose this hotel because of very good reputation on this web site. I was very happy with nice breakfast, very kind and helpful staff, and clean and safe room. I will book this hotel again this summer. I want to say thanks to all who recommended this hotel here.

We arrive in the early morning hour from USA and was picked up promptly by drivers who were hired by the hotel. The price of the transfer was included and we just tipped the drivers. We were met graciously by the hotel staff and went through the check in process. Our rooms were in the next building over from the... More

This is a great option providing spotless rooms, a good breakfast, and really helpful staff. Everything worked well (hot water, wifi, fans etc - often luxuries in East Africa). No complaints and would happily return.

This was the first hotel we stayed in on a recent trip to Rwanda (April, 2014). We found the hotel to have a very good view of Embassy row, along with some view of the city center of Kigali. Overall, the room was clean and spacious. We were greeted with a somewhat brusque manner by the resident manager. In the... More

My mother and I stayed at the Golf Hills Residence in April 2014. As two Canadian females travelling to a new country, we wanted to stay at a place that made us feel safe and that's exactly how we felt at Golf Hills. Antoinette was a wonderful host who made us feel right at home. She was extremely receptive to... More

We spent fantastic days at the Golf Hills Residence! The Hotel is beautiful and has a nice view. The stuff is very friendly and it was very interesting to talk to them about Kigali, places to visit and other Ruanda-topics. They also had answers to our questions about organizing our trip and found solutions for all our wishes. The breakfast... More

My wife and I were in Kigali in April 2014 for work, and stayed at this hotel for six nights. The hotel far exceeded our expectations. The two main buildings are quite lovely and have beautiful gardens and plants. We stayed in room 17 - a spacious room with a king size bed, incredible views of the city, and a... More

My colleagues and I stayed there for 3 nights during our business visit to Kigali and we got the 3x3 discount which was remarkable! We chose Golf Hill based on the reviews here on Trip Advisor, and for a hotel that was not even on our list initially, I must say we made a good decision to pick it. We... More

Golf Hills Residence was our first hotel while on a 3 week trip to Africa. It was very clean, the service was excellent and our room large and airy. The breakfasts were very good. It was very quiet which I appreciated being a light sleeper. We were in a building away from the dining room and patio area so that... More
