This is a resort-styled property in a beautiful location at the northern tip of Lake Tanganyika, on the edge of Bujumbura, with extensive grounds and numerous thatch-roofed areas to sit, read, have a drink or a meal, or just enjoy the view. The border of Dem. Rep. of Congo is not far, which sometimes causes security issues as other reviewers...

Room was not clean, garbage on the beach, insufficient staff for the pool restaurant. Safe was broken. Bathroom porcelain chipped. The lake was beautiful.....but I would look for another option if I returned to the area

We stayed over night while visiting Bujumbura Golf Course. The hotel is about 5 minutes from the city, but its doesnt matter. Hotel Shuttle takes You where ever you want. I visited barber shop and they helped me to find the place. Absolutely amazing beach but be careful early morning, you can meet some hippos...

This is without doubt the nicest place overall to stay in Bujumbura. It is slightly overpriced in my opinion, but it can't be easy running such an establishment in a landlocked country experiencing ongoing civil strife. The location for this hotel is excellent: just outside of Buj, near UN barracks for safety (of concern every so often) and right on...

Many do perhaps not expect white beaches and "sea view" when you go to a landlocked country in the middle of Africa, but Club du Lac has both. Rooms are nice and charming, quite big, comfortable bed and nice bath rooms. Can be a little bit noisy in the weekends if they have live music, but it usually doesn't last...

If you are looking for the luxury hotel in Bujumbura, there is no other equal to Clu du Lac wher you relax at the beaches or take a walk around the town. I travelled recently with a friend of mine.

Probably the best hotel in Buj -.certainly the best if you're staying any length of time. It's not a chain style hotel - and all the better for it - but while basic it is reliable, secure and clean. The food is ok - not as good as some restaurants in town - but again it's reliable with good and...

I had a great stay at Club du Lac Tanganyika, which, I think is the best place to stay in Buja. When you look out of the window of your room you see the lake Tanganyika which looks almost like a little ocean--blue water, waves and white sand in the beach. Hotel is in a quiet location and food is...

I stayed here for two weeks on a work trip. I really liked it, I had a very comfortable room with a view right on the lake. The hotel feels more like a holiday resort and it gets a lot of day visitors to use the indoors pool. On weekends there is usually live music so the place can get...
