I visit Bujumbura frequently, and alwasy stay at Le Chandelier. The staff are incredible, they treat you like family. My colleague wanted to go to Church on Sunday morning, and the man at reception took her in his car, so she wouldn't get lost. Gym needs a bit of work (which is why I didn't give it 5 stars....). Beds... More

I stayed here last time I was in Bujumbura (Dec 2014) and it was a comfortable experience. The staff is very lovely, breakfast was tasty and healthy and the rooms are spacious. The hotel is located close enough to the city center to not require any commute and far enough from the city to have a calm and relaxing atmosphere... More

Always stay at Le Chandelier when I'm in Buja. Excellent location (very safe, even in the current situation). They have added a breakfast buffet, which is nice. Staff are extremely helpful. Free shuttle to/from the airport. Big supermarket right next door if you want to buy snacks. Huge beds with mosquito netting. Rooms 11 and 18 have lovely balconys. Little... More

This hotel is near to the city centre, and at this time one of the safest places to stay in Bujumbura. There were reports of shooting almost every night while we were in the city, but never around the area of the hotel. The hotel people are very friendly, (and speak English) and also quite protective, being ready to give... More

Dear Valued Customer, Thank You so much for the review. I want to apologize for the Kitchen/ Restaurant, as you saw it there is an issue of security in the country. Therefore less guests/tourists/clients so the only solution was to reduce the hotel's stuff which we had to unfortunatly do. All I can promise you is " to make it... More

I spent a night at Le Chandelier. The hotel is very conveniently situated, close to the shopping area, but far away enough to be quieter. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable, and good internet access was a plus. Staff were friendly and helpful and I had a good simple breakfast before departing. Check out took a bit of time....

This is a pleasant place to stay in central Bujumbura, very well placed for offices and so on. I stayed in a room with a balcony, then later after a trip up country I returned to a room without a balcony and that was really pretty good. You can and should negotiate the price - it should be possible to... More

I came here for a workshop and I found the place amazing. The staff were all great and helpful, especially Innocent and the two ladies at reception. Internet connection was perfect. The food variety the best ever. I was in room 18 and regret that I could not make use of the balcony due to limited timing. When we negotiated... More

I stayed at this hotel for 3 weeks. I was in room 18, and my colleague was in room 11. Both have beautiful balconies. These rooms cost a bit extra, but it's worth it (especially for a long stay). Staff are wonderful! No gym, but only a 10 minute walk from a lovely park where you can walk or run... More
