Heaven is know for restaurant sevices and view point. I did not know they have rooms until I saw the advert on the menu.

Heaven is a great place to stay and with three rooms you better book your trip early. It's on a quiet street and feels secluded but is in walking distance of the hotel des Mille Collines, cafes and shopping. There are also restaurants in walking distance, including Khana Khazana Indian. Heaven also has its own popular restaurant, with a fabulous... More

I have spent many weeks across many years in Rwanda, and I've stayed in many guest houses and hotels in Kigali. Heaven is my first choice, hands down. The restaurant is truly impressive, and the rooms are spacious, clean, comfortable and convenient. The owners, managers, and staff go out of their way (over and over) to make certain you have...

I travelled to Rwanda with my father to visit the mountain gorillas. The Inn@Heaven was very accommodating, clean and spacious with pretty good wifi but the restaurant was definitely the best part! Was a bit disappointing on the morning of our departure that our airport transfer was late but lucky we made it in time. Would definitely recommend Inn@Heaven for... More

I really enjoyed my stay at Inn@Heaven. The staff are amazing and so friendly. I was there on my own for a few nights and then with friends. They have everything you need, a great restaurant, a shop and art gallery. The restaurant was definitely the best that I've been to in Rwanda, if not East Africa. Cocktails are great!... More

We stayed at Heaven on NYE for one night and were lucky enough to enjoy their delicious NYE buffet dinner - with reggae band and great ambience. The dining room was setup with nice lighting on their large outdoor patio. The food was fantastic, service great and was everything that we needed for our NYE celebration. The only downfall was...

My stay at Inn@Heaven was excellent. The service was the best I've ever experienced. The staff is very friendly and always willing to help. They accommodated my check-in and check-out times, hooked me up with a motorbike driver (Boncoeur) and even helped me plan my itinerary. The room is spacious, clean and well-equipped. The resto was one of the best... More

You can't beat the location and price, and it's so convenient to have a nice bar and restaurant (and craft shop and gallery!) attached to this pleasant Inn. You don't come to Kigali expecting the Four Seasons, The owners, Josh and Alyssa, are delightful and have made a real commitment to Rwanda and its people.
