Very expensive for what it is, but that's a description that works for many things in Kigali. Large room with a TV that doesn't work, and slow internet. Bedroom and bathroom fully equipped but in need of a refurb. The food is good from the restaurant and the staff are all very helpful and pleasant - including the manager, who... More

The rooms are neat and welcoming. The hotel is in a fearly tight environment in terms of space! I will say Stepp Hotel is good for sleep; and isn't that the most important reason we patronise hotels? So, it is not bad after all!

Arrived to hotel late evening after long tiring trip from Burundi. The manager at the front desk informed me immediately that there are no rooms available. I mentioned that I have reservation and written confirmation but he did not even want to check if there is my name in the system. The same refers to my 3 colleagues that arrived... More

I had been to this hotel to visit their poolside restaurant. They took time to serve Pizza but it was delicious. The place is very quiet and manned by good staff. I am sure you will be served with some excellent pizzas.

I have stayed in this place many times on business trips (that was not my choosing), and I would not recomend it. Starting with shuttle, which is very often late, or simply not arriving, later through mess in the reception, pretty worn rooms and finally the food. The food is gradually geting worse over last couple of years. I tried... More

Ordinarily i'd have given this place 3 stars... reasonable rooms, pretty setting, friendly and facilitative staff... though I would also note more attention to detail is required and some signs of uncleanliness in the rooms and public places need to be looked at.. However, I found the attitude of management to be completely inappropriate and unacceptable, and thus even this... More

Was booked here in transit and so stayed one night. The room I was given had three double beds in it so there was little room for maneuver. So for example the kettle is in the bathroom. I had room service and ordered fillet tilapia which came dry with vegetables and a room service charge of $ The decor is... More

It's too expensive. The rooms are small and the beds seem to be made of marble. Barely slept the two nights i was there. The food, on the other hand, is amazing. They have a great chef -- though the food is also quite pricey. It's in a very beautiful part of Kigali, but they should cut their prices by... More
