I stayed at the Good News guesthouse with my daughter and parents on two occasions in Feb 2013. We arrived late at night and were greeted by Ben and his exceptional staff. We immediately settled into our rooms, but not before securing a bit of wifi access to check-in with loved ones back home. The bathrooms were clean and had... More

We had a wonderful stay at the GNGH. Ben and his staff were very welcoming and accommodating and the rooms and beds were very comfortable. The food is top notch - I would go there just to eat if I were in the area and not staying at the guest house. The chef, Anastase, was very friendly and accommodating as... More

The staff is absolutely amazing! They made our stay so pleasant! They served a great hot breakfast each morning. They will call a taxi for you if needed. Conveniently located within minutes of downtown Kigali.

Ben and his staff at GNGH made every attempt to have our stay go as smoothly as possible. Meeting us at the airport was like being greeted by an old friend. The WIFI has been improved and can now reach to all bedrooms. Breakfast out in the garden is such a beautiful way to start the day. The food is... More

I've stayed at a few places in Kigali now and Ben's place is superb. The welcoming staff and team he has as well as the great facilities make this place second to none. The rooms are beautiful and bathrooms have hot water and impeccably clean. Wi-fi is available and a good speed. Anastase makes fabulous food and the french toast... More

Due to the top ratings of this place on Tripadvisor, we had high expectations as we arrived. We stayed here two nights after arrival in Rwanda and again the last night before flying home two weeks later. The best thing with this place is the super nice and friendly chef Anastase, who is an outstanding cook. As a consequence, we... More

This was perfect. Ben was gracious and accommodating. My room was clean and quaint. The meals were lovely and the grounds were beautiful. Coffee outside on the deck with a wonderful view of downtown Kigali. He arranged drivers, airport transport, and informative conversation. He is a great man doing amazing work in his community with his organization Good news International.... More

This is a great spot in Kigali. Ben, the owner, is extremely helpful and personable. I was meeting family at the airport in the afternoon and used the Guesthouse transfer service. I met Ben at the guesthouse and we ended up waiting nearly two hours at the airport as the flight was delayed. I was a tad worried that that... More

We stayed at Good News Guesthouse on three separate occasions during our time in Rwanda. It felt like coming back home every time. The staff is very welcoming and friendly. As a couple travelling alone, it gets a little busy and more difficult to find staff when large groups are staying at the guesthouse and mornings get quite loud. The... More

Staff were very helpful and friendly. The terrace was landscaped beautifully and was nice to eat and relax there. There is a wonderful view of the city. Beds and mosquito netting was fine. Bathroom was adequate except the curtain over the window was not long enough to cover window completely (room 2 ??). Met two different people who said they... More
