The rooms were big with good views. But the hotel looked like it has seen better days. Bathroom was small and bath shower not so big and a little dark. So we decided not to stay here. The location of the hotel is very good otherwise - close to action and parliament building

Made my first trip to the African Continent Last week for business and Stayed at the Top Tower Hotel in Kigali. I must say, it was an absolutely gorgeous establishment. Upon arriving, we were greeted by the friendliest Bell Hop I have ever met. Not only did he speak fluent English, but he also knew American English to boot! That... More

I stayed at Top Tower for 4 days. I had booked my room from their website. At arrival they picked me up free of charge in a minivan that could use some newer upholstery. But since it was free, I didn't mind so much. I was assisted by one their staff . I think his name is Placide. He was... More

I really liked the atmosphere of the hotel, wonderful view, the staff was pleased me by their friendly approach to guests. The room was quite big, a lot of space, with a nice furniture, air conditioner, clean, I didn’t expect that, comfortable place to stay and sleep. As I said room was clean and comfortable, no problems with hot water,... More

Centrally located hotel, friendly staff, good breakfast. Rooms are large and well furnished, well air conditioned without draftiness. Lighting OK, multi-plug outlets (no need for adapter) but not too many of them. In house bar with a view, but was always empty when I checked. They also have a casino with small sports bar, a bit more lively. Restaurants and... More

The rooms are large but very dated with a lingering smell of smoke. I requested a room with two twin beds but got just 1 double bed. My first night at the hotel the shower would not produce any hot water, so after a long day of driving I was stuck taking a cold shower. The enclosed shower had a... More

I recently stayed at this 70's retro hotel. The hotel rooms are "alright" but for the price, a $140 US a night.....is a real rip-off....at best, this hotel should only be charging US$50 to $70 a night. Someone build a new hotel in this city! The staff do no wear uniforms and they come in and out of your room... More

The room had leaky, moldy ceilings, and we were wrongfully charged for ice ($10). We went to the restaurant on the top floor and ordered Long Island Iced Teas. We were served Lemon Drops. I would advise travelers to double check with servers before ordering anything from this hotel.

Possibly one of the worst hotels I've stayed in my 70+ countries of travel. Unfortunatley booked for me by company. Room was boiling hot, no air conditioning that worked. Staff had no inclination to fix it or help. Seedy casino on the premises. Restaurant with zero atmosphere, surly staff, terrible food. I can't imagine any reason to stay here again.
