I stayed there for 3 nights I had a room in the main building with not much of a view... but room was ok and quiet. The hotel is very well located on the shore of the lake and it is very nice to walk around or sit for a drink looking at the lake. Dinner was good with a... More

The best hotel is town is definitely NOT this one. Linda and Kivu lodge are much more comfortable. Got clothes stolen from my room, when complaining about it the reception insinuated that I had lost my clothes myself. I had locked everything in my suitcases except these clothes that I had worn the previous day. They broke the wheel of... More

I'm sure this is the best hotel in Goma. The hotel located on the bank of the Lake Kivu. Spectacular view and tropical nature are strong points. But staff...vere-very-very slow... but friendly. Rooms are clean and comfortable. But there is a big minus! European food is a weak point. I advice you order local cuisine:fish Tilapia is the best. And... More

Ihusi has a great location. It is in walking distance from the Rwanda/DRC border (so don't look for a taxi), and it is located along (and in parts, over) Lake Kivu. It has a beautiful setting with gardens, outdoor eating/drinking areas, a pool (that I didn't try), and plenty of rooms and conference areas. One drawback is the large number... More

Was in Goma for a business trip looking for office and residential properties and was booked at the hotel. I was a bit skeptical at first but once we all checked into our rooms three of us had lake view rooms and one opted to upgrade to a larger room. My room was perfect with a beautiful view of lake...

Overall my experience was pretty good; the internet was surprisingly strong and consistent (with a few blips here and there), the bed was good, power was very consistent, and the staff were helpful. The breakfast is not that great, but it's very convenient to the border and gets the job done.

Considering the location and the city with two active volcanos, the state of overall development, I rate this hotel at 3, however if international standards are applied this hotel will not exceed the rate of two. True view on lake Kivu is great, but that is it. Breakfast is nothing exceptional at all, rooms wide true but basic.

when travelling to the DRC, particularly in the east region, most of the travellers do apprehend to cross the border, as I need to accomodate and organise tours, I always advise the best option in the region. Ihusi hotel is a top reference due to be close to the border. Ihusi is build on pillars that are in the lake... More

"I don't think we are in Kansas any more Toto!" Somewhere beyond the rainbow is Goma, DRC, and Ihusi seems to be the epicentre of NGO, UN, and government comings and goings. Your chances of an impromptu meeting with any of the above are better at the restaurant or bar here than weeks working up the email chain. The hotel... More

I stayed in the hotel in Nov2013. The front desk was not really responsive to my requests. The room was not convenient at all, not well designed and dirty. The carpet was filthy and i did not understand why you would have a carpet in a humid place. On a more positive side, the breakfast, swimming pool and location were... More
