If you read the reviews about the GNGH you can see that this place is rated very highly. I concur, stay here you wont be disappointed. As many have said a little away from the centre but for us this was good. Very quiet and relaxing with a lovely garden to sit in. Many Africans stay here which I like... More

We had a lovely time during our stay at Good News Guest House! Ben and the rest of the staff were so very friendly and accommodating. We have two young children (2 and almost 4) and it was a great place to stay with them, with a variety of foods for breakfast, a lovely yard to run around in, and... More

I went to Rwanda in June with a group from my school and was rather impressed by the standard of the guest house. We travelled around whilst we were there but we always returned to the guest house and were more than happy to! All the staff are exceptionally friendly and always willing to help, not to mention the chefs... More

I spent 6 weeks at the Good News Guest House while studying and working in Rwanda and my experience was highly enriched and made wonderful by staying at the guest house. I was so well taken care of and made comfortable during what was my first time in Africa. I will return to this place frequently throughout the rest of... More

Stayed two separate nights here. Grounds are lovely. Rooms are basic but good. Internet was a bit weak but still I would stay here again. For the price, it is hard to do better. Ate 2 evening meals and 2 breakfasts here. Found them to be very good. Of course, it helps that the views from our table were exceptional.... More

This place is clean enough. The food is good (it takes a LONG time to get it, so order well before you are hungry). The internet wasn't very good - but this is africa. It's hard to find cheap accommodation in Kigali - so I'd probably stay here again.

I came with a school group from Scotland and although we travelled around Rwanda, we always came back to the guesthouse when we were in Kigali. Ben, Clement, Anastase, Poupoute (in order in photos) and the rest of the team were very welcoming and would go out of their way to make sure you were enjoying your stay. The rooms... More

I stayed here two years ago and I was so looking forward to being back - I wasn't disappointed, it remains the best place I have stayed in Rwanda. The breakfasts made by chefs Anastase and Dodo are wonderful - fruit salad (mango, pineapple, ikinyimoro, passion fruit, banana) then French toast with maple syrup or pancakes with honey, sets you...

I stayed at the Good News Guest House as part of a group from Scotland, visiting to serve within local communities. They provided an amazing atmosphere - Ben and all of his team learned all of our names, got to know us and tried their best to give us advice to help us with our projects. Rooms were clean &...

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
