I stayed here for a week in February 2016. It was the warm, sunny season and unfortunately, my room did not have a ceiling fan or an Air Conditioner, so I was very hot and uncomfortable all the time in my room, including sleeping at night. The bathroom had a decent shower with hot water. But the sink was not...

Our stay in Rwanda included a lot of traveling and was excellent over all, but the hotels were somewhat disappointing in general. This does not apply to Cari. The place wasn't so great because of the extremely fancy interior or the amazing location, those were okay but not something special. The real asset was the amazing staff. Some of them...

Pleasant place to stay. Central location. Rooms were clean and smart.....only concerned door was not locking and was not attended to In a timely manner. Meals were good and staff willing to respond to special dietary requirements.

The Cari Hotel was a little hard to find (tip: its down the road opposite the Rwandan Development Board or RDB) -any driver knows the RDB landmark, but not necessarily where the Cari Hotel is. The rooms are all spotless and well appointed. Internet access was outstanding; there was even a wireless router right above the door to my room!...

We checked in late at night but we were warmly welcomed as if it was during the day. The receptionist was very helpful. In the morning we took our breakfast at around 9:00Am and everything was sweet and delicious. Rooms are clean and the Wifi is free and very fast. It is a recommendable place.

I booked directly with the hotel by email and negotiated a price of $70. Perhaps not the best choice if planning siteseeing etc in Kigali. Was a nice room - clean and comfortable. They have a restaurant also. Transport prices - bus station to hotel in a taxi - 5500 - about 8 USD - hotel to Kigali in a...
