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

The travel kiosk at the airport recommended this hotel. I asked her to pull up Trip Adviser on her computer so I could see how it was rated. Seeing it was rated high - off we went. There was some miss communication between the travel kiosk and the hotel and the rate, when we got to the hotel, was significantly... More

This is probably the best "bargain" hotel you will find in Kigali. Its close to the airport, very quiet, clean and in a very safe area ( residential ). The company I traveled with, Gorilla Trek Africa made sure that my trip finished on a positive note. This is the reason they selected the Garr Hotel. The staff was most... More

I stayed at the Garr for a week while I was in Kigali on business (May 2014). I can't remember my room number, but I believe it was the "best" room at a rate of $160 US. It had a nice, large bed with a walk-in mosquito net (hung from the ceiling on a rail). The windows also had screens.... More

If you pass by Kigali, if you are looking for a quite, clean hotel, with a highly professional staff, go to Garr Hotel. You also have enough restaurants around and a Mall (with ATM facilities) to feel connected to the city. The Breakfast is OK, nothing wonderful but good. You can also eat in the small restaurant, good food, the... More

I have stayed at the Garr Hotel twice while in Rwanda for work purposes. They always look after me very well. It is a quiet, restful place within walking distance of a reasonable coffee shop, small supermarket selling western-style groceries and ATM facilities. The massage available at the beauty spa was excellent after a week's hard travel in rural areas.... More

Outstanding staff greeted us with fresh passion juice. Beds were very comfortable. Rooms very clean. The pool was beautiful and provided for a most relaxing afternoon. All this and one of the best Rwandan spa experiences ever. Look forward to returning next year.

This was a great place to stay, in walking distance to several fine restaurants and close to shopping. The staff was friendly and professional, especially Vincent. The dining room staff was always accomodating and helpful while serving a delicious breakfast.
