We spent 2 weeks in Bujumbura, and we couldn't have been happier. Dolce Vita is quiet, comfortable, clean, and secure, with great service all around. Plus, their chef is a real professional who takes his art seriously. You can never really explain how important good food is--you just know it is, especially when traveling a lot. The hotel is also... More

Electricity, internet, hot water, cleanness of the rooms and premises are notable. Food... More

The staff are extremely friendly and welcoming. I was in Bujumbura for work and was very happy with my experience at Dolce Vita Hotel. The breakfast omelettes are great, the coffee is good, and the roof deck bar/restaurant is a nice place to relax at the end of the days. The airport pickup shuttle is also a plus. For anyone...

I have stayed at Hotel Dolce Vita Resort twice during 2015-16. In short, it's a good choice for any traveler - and a great choice for those on a budget. The staff are unfailingly friendly and accommodating. And they provide those little things that make you feel welcome: like a free airport shuttle or an amuse bouche at dinner. Some... More
