It was such a pleasure for my colleagues and me to stay at the Garr Hotel. The staff was incredibly friendly and accommodating, the rooms were clean and comfortable, and the hotel location was perfect. The staff was also great about answering all my questions and concerns pre-arrival over e-mail. I'd recommend staying there to anyone going to Kigali!

The Garr prides itself on its service to you, the customer, and they deliver. I was a guest for 3wks, and during that time the staff was extremely friendly and helpful for any need that I had. The food was excellent and they allowed me to modify any particular dish I ordered to suit my own tastes. I thought the... More

I travelled to Rwanda regularly for work over four years, and Garr Hotel became my home away from home. Whether for days or weeks, the staff here always have a welcoming smile and do whatever they can to make you feel at home. The area is lovely and close to great restaurants like Zen and Sake, with a small shopping... More

Went to Kigali for a short business trip and ended up finding a gem. The service was great and the rooms were good value for the price. The only complaint was that the shower's hot water was broken and it took 2 days to fix. They were apologetic and gave a discount.

I just recently returned from Kigali. The Garr hotel was fantastic; the rooms were great, the amenities first rate and the service was top-notch. I plan on returning to Rwanda in the near future and will stay at the Garr again.

We stayed here at the end of our Uganda/Rwanda adventure. Nice, comfortable, clean, safe. Food good too and staff very nice. Will definitely stay again. Within walking distance to Bourbon Coffee Shop and a little shopping.

The facilities are very nice. Clean rooms, spotless dining room, and excellent food. From the moment you check-in, you are reminded of what a service based commitment really is. I always look forward to my next trip to Rwanda, and ultimately the Garr Hotel. By the way photos aren't touched or changed, nothing is staged for advertisement. Simply Amazing...

Recommended and booked for my wife and I by my son who works in Kigali. We spent a total of 11 nights in Rwanda, 8 of them in Garr hotel and were very pleased with room, service and environment. We made safari and jungle trips during our stay and Garr was more than happy to take care of unrequired luggage... More

I stayed one night at the Garr Hotel booked by my tour operator upon my arrival in Rwanda. Arriving in the evening and leaving the following morning, I found the hotel pleasant and well-appointed. Three days later, when my airline ticket was not honored in the middle of the night to leave the country, I had a taste of just... More
