I stayed here for a week. Everything was above board. Clean, Accommodating, Great Facilities and Truly a great experience. The restaurant was great as well. The staff was so good, but there was a young man, Shema, who went above and beyond and treated me better than a customer, he treated me like family. The hotel is blessed to have a man like him on staff. Thanks Shema for a great experience.

One very very bed experience! Truly exceptional hill views! Unfortunately, a rather disgusting waiter happened to me who, after I had waited for a single table to become vacant near the window, and having stopped to greet a friend I met by chance, next to the table at which I was about to sit down. made to sit at "my" table a group of people who, a few moments before were seated at another table. It was clear that the waiter in question preferred to seat a group at that table, with a possible tip in proportion to the number of people, me, single and with probable "single" tip! Following this disgusting behavior, I left the place and I don't think about going back.

I have visited the rooftop restaurant many times on previous trips to Rwanda, and it is one of my favorite places in the city. Because of the Covid quarantine requirements, I had to select a hotel for my 24 hour quarantine while awaiting the results of my covert test. I immediately selected the Ubumwe Grande Hotel and I was definitely not disappointed! Innocent was willing to exchange money for me at a local currency exchange because I was quarantined, and Ange did a wonderful job providing superb room service! Every staff member I engage with, from the doorman, to security, the front desk, room service--it was all perfect! What a wonderful way to begin this trip to Rwanda!

I stayed at Ubumwe on Quarantine for 24 hours suring my trip to Rwanda.. The check in was quick, the room was spacious and modern.. the only drawback was the food .. it was not tasty and the in room dining service is a little bit slow .. other than that the hotel is excellent.. please don’t forget to check the rooftop cafe .. the view is amazing.
