3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

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

The entire staff at Good News Guest House are most gracious and hospitable, doing everything possible to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. They provided transportation to and from the airport, took us to exchange money, and drove us to various sites. The rooms were comfortable, and the food was delicious. We enjoyed leisurely breakfasts and evenings in the beautifully... More

We were overwhelmed by the kindness and welcome provided by all of the staff at the aptly named Good News Guest House in Kigali. Ben, the manager of the hotel met us at the airport in the early hours of the morning and transported us the short distance to the hotel. We were quickly checked in and shown our room,... More

My wife, myself and a couple of friends came over to visit daughter and sun, who complete a 3-month internship at the hospital. We stayed the first night and the last night of our one-week trip in Ruanda at the Good News Guest House in Kigali. As Ruanda and Kigali were unfamiliar to us, it was pleasant to have Ben,... More

This is more like a family-run B&B than a backpackers, per se. The “Good News” in its name is same, same as the Bible and it’s a Christian-owned guest house I believe. That should give you a “feel” for the place, but shouldn’t deter those of secular persuasion. Ben and his family, who run the Guest House, are Rwandan Tutsi... More
