“A great place to stay in Kigali”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

This is a fantastic place to stay in Kigali. I think it is really good value for money. The rooms are really big and spotlessly clean. The bathrooms are also big and the showers are great. The staff are friendly and helpful. There is free wi-fi throughout.
All in all a good choice in Kigali.

Golf Hills Residence is a gem! Out of the busy city centre it is ideally located and 15min from the airport! The rooms are very clean, spacious and the staff go the extra mile to make sure you have all the comfort you need! Our plane was cancelled and Antoinette took us up for an extra 12 hours so that we can rest and have a shower before the next flight out!

Loved the free services of cleaning your shoes (especialy if you have been in the forests and gorilla tracking!). The food at the restaurant is well prepared and good value for money!

I will stay there again!

This place is just amazing. The facilities are excellent and clean, the staff are friendly and always helpful, the manager Antoinette is an angel really. My best experience is the view of Kigali at night. From my room the room was just magical. Security is top notch and the environment clean and serene. Totally recommend it!!!

This is an excellent hotel with excellent customer service. The rooms are clean, pleasant and well proportioned. The views from the hotel overlook the city's golf resort and are a treat. The decor of the hotel is pleasant and uplifting. The manager is hospitable, friendly and kind - she will look after your interests. Five stars and well deserved. I will definitely come again - you wont find better value for money in Rwanda!

I visit Kigali on a regular basis for business and stayed one week at this hotel during my last stay.

The rooms are clean and spacious and the staff is friendly and helpful.

The wifi is free, available throughout the hotel and can even support a Skype call in good quality which is a rare treat in Kigali.

Arrived at Kigali airport to be met by the hotels recommended taxi driver 'Steady Eric', who went on to take us around from meeting to meeting during our weeks visit (and I'd also recommend with 5 stars if there was an equivalent Taxi Advisor). The hotel lived up to its name, more like a house than a hotel, and the staff were wonderful.
Clean rooms, plenty of hot water and always a warm welcome on return after a day full of meetings, I'd highly recommend this hotel if you want somewhere reasonable with a personal touch.
Not in the centre but only 10 mins by taxi, it's the place I'll be staying at next time I go back to Kigali - what stands out at Golf Hills Residence is that they actually really care about their customers in everything they do.

From check in to check out excellent service from a dedicated staff. Great freshly cooked homely food and nice cold beer. Golf Hills is proof positive that big budget hotels are not the only option for African capital cities. The GHR meets the need of the business traveller who wants a quiet stay in a hotel offering efficient service in comfortable and secure surroundings.
