I stayed at the Garr hotel for a night after my gorilla trek and before flying out of Kigali the next day. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The entrance to the hotel is gated and has a security guard. I interacted with several staff (security, reception, housecleaning, restaurant) and they were very nice. The restaurant called...

Given that Kigali is not the cheapest place on earth this hotel is of course overpriced, however compared to other places in the area it's far cleaner and the staff is amazing. The little pool in the back garden is great for a relaxed afternoon. Ask for the rooms near to the pool to avoid the street noise.

The hotel room was clean, the bed was comfortable and wifi worked properly from the room, however rooms facing the street are noisy. Kigali is not a cheap city nor the hotel are. In busy season the hotel gets fully booked very quickly, you may need to book well in advance. When I arrived they still showed having empty rooms...

The hotel room was really nice. No hot water but the receptionist did say that I should have called them. Not the easiest thing to do when you are already in the shower. Anyway. The food was good, the pool was nice and clean. There is a small shopping centre within walking distance. For the level of service and quality...

We paid US$105 for a double, and found the hotel at or below expectations, but probably what you would expect in Kigali, which is an expensive city. We had some problems with the hot water, it ran out quickly (perhaps it was just our room) and the rooms were on the small side. On the positive side, the staff serving...

Enjoyed two nights here before and after a gorilla trip. Very comfortable and clean, plenty of hot water, very helpful staff who even came onto the street and negotiated a moto for me. Two different rooms 104 and 105 were both a bit dark although plenty of lamps around. Breakfast was fine, cold and hot available although not a particularly...

We had a great stay at the Garr Hotel in Kigali. It is very clean. The rates are affordable, and the service is very friendly. It has a pool, a restaurant, and conveniently located. Breakfast is included. Nothing fancy but enjoyable.

I stayed at Garr Hotel for three nights, then two one night stretches back in May. While the hotel is simple, it is very clean, has a fantastic pool, and the staff are absolutely amazing.
