We were very happy with our stay here. The rooms were large and clean, the bar/restaurant area was great and the food was very tasty too. Most of all, the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. We had stayed at 2 other places in Kigali and were left disappointed, this was a very pleasant surprise!

Stayed as a family for several days in one of the apartments. Set over two floors with loads of space and lots of privacy. Excellent place to stay with very friendly staff and a good restaurant. Mainly NGOs and business people staying but they were very welcoming to a young family.

I found this guesthouse on the map as it is located close to one of my clients and it had good reviews. I can only truly recommend the hotel, its staff and the restaurant (though the portions are far too big). From a business perspective, the fact that they have an excellent internet connection is already worthwhile choosing this location....

This is a great guesthouse. The rooms are clean and lovely, and the service is EXCELLENT. Very friendly staff. Quiet area. Beautiful green surroundings. Very centrally located, with walking distance to the city centre with UTC, etc, and to the possibly best Indian restaurant outside of India Khana Khazana. Good internet. Everything is great at this place!

This was my second stay at the Iris Guesthouse. I stayed there six months ago. The central location is great. It is walking distance to two great restaurants (Khana and Heaven Restaurant). The staff is very friendly. It was nice to have hot running water in the shower. The wi-fi in the room was not always available, but on the...

I only stayed one nite - it was clean and comfortable with a lovely breakfast. I enjoyed my stay and would recommend the hotel. They were very kind to accommodate me when another hotel did not have my reservation.

Christofer and his team do anything to ensure you will enjoy a pleasent stay. During my travels I could store my lugguge for free. I liked the breakfast on the open terrace with a view. And Tilapia fish with peanut sauce was great. Wi-fi in the room sometimes iffy but outside always working. I will stay again in Iris Guesthouse...
