A real find. Stayed here after a safari. Safari company had us stay one night at Kigali Serena and we were "on our own" for a second night - decided to stay at a smaller, local place - Golf Hills was great. Quiet at night. Good value - $100 USD compared with about $350 for the Serena. Rooms were large,... More

This place is great. Rooms are large and clean and safe. The showers are great and there's lots of hot water (no solar showers here!). Owner is very helpful but the staff are pretty incompetent and their language skills (English and French) are poor. Breakfast could be improved. It's not near the town centre so you'll need to rent a... More

I rarely drum about places have been to but this was as an exception.We there first week of July. Golf Hills residence made us feel more at home than a hotel, more like an affordable boutique hotel. We travelled with our son, picked from the airport by Ananie taxi driver arranged by the hotel. Reception was excellent. The room was... More

Golf Hills Residence is located about 15 minutes from the airport and 15 minutes from the center of Kigali by car. It is comprised of 2 two-storey buildings next to one another that look like large houses. Taxis sometimes have difficulty finding it, so I would take advantage of their free airport pick-up service. The rooms are basic but spacious... More

Golf Hills was a perfect choice for my fist visit to Kigali. Away from the bustle of the city centre it's perched on a hill looking over to the golf course. It's on a busy road but raised above so although you can hear traffic you forget its there and can't see it. I had a single room - great... More

I stayed here in October 2012 with my family (including 2 kids under 3 years)... The hotel has basic amenities but the friendly, helpful staff make up for this. Accommodation is pretty basic, swimming pool is out of order, TV in one of the rooms did not work, meals were not the best with the exception of breakfast which was... More

2nd business trip to Kigali and decided to stay again at Golf Hills and found it just as good as last time. Clean and in a nice location, the friendly staff are its best asset. Its also very reasonably priced as well and is a great place to stay if on holiday or in business.

Super convenient, inexpensive (rate includes airport pick-up), comfortable hotel, with incredibly friendly and helpful staff. Good wifi, nice breakfast options, they'll bring complimentary tea to your room upon request. Highly recommend.

We recently spent one night in Kigali before heading to the volcanoes area... the hotel was great, beautiful place, very nice views of the valley and a very friendly staff. The location is great, only less than 20min from the airport, in a great suburb.. it's up in the hills so we had nice views.. Antoinette was great, very helpful... More
