The location is very awesome..and if you prefer lake side rooms ...it would be a perfect adventure for you. The food is good ...try talapia fish..facing the wave side...though mostly western dishes they serve. The beds are extra springy ..and soft. Front view is great as it faces the lake. I had first visited in 2001.

Not a cheap hotel but well run and comfortable with western style comfort, relaxed, good pool, good food and friendly service. The food is on the whole good I had duck a l'orange - my brother had pizza which was not good and vegetarians not well catered for. The resident crowned cranes are great!! Nice pool, nice atmosphere

We were here for two nights after a gorilla trek and before heading to the DRC. The room wasn't ready yet despite us booking well in advance. At that point I thought ok that can happen. However half the electric appliances in the room didn't work. The wifi only reached around the reception and the restaurant. We had dinner there... More

We arrived late and our rooms were available. The room was well kept and I slept well. I was looking forward for breakfast but got quite disappointed with what was being offered and the service was not what I expected. The place is also poorly maintained. It's quite a shame.

I love the hotel especially when on business as it is central but very quiet at the same time. Food is not great there, except perhaps their Sambaza. The amenities have however be deteriorating quite a lot. Last time I was there, there was a major flood in its kitchen/dining room, during breakfast time. Half of the electrical fittings did...

The hotel is a real colonial style treat beside Lake Kivu grounds although across the road from the beach. It is set up a slope with good views, beautiful grounds and the tamest crowned cranes you will ever meet. The food on the whole is very good I had tillapia a l'orange which was superb my brother tried a pizza... More

Gisenyi is a natural beauty even without the Hotels. Stipp Hotel adfs a great deal of value to the whole image of beauty. It's all well structured to capture a series of beautiful views from the balcony in some rooms. The Beds are quite comfortable and relaxing. Though the rooms are not big they are adequately sized and stylishly designed... More
