La Palme was a clean, efficient, and friendly place to stay the night and have a few meals before setting out for Volcanoes National Park. I liked how quiet it was and it had a fun old hotel feel to it. The staff were very attentive and made sure we enjoyed our meals. They provided everything we needed in the reception area (lemonade as we were checking in) and in our rooms (towels, shower shoes, soft sheets, great balconies). I would stay here again if I were to come back to Musanze!

After spending a few of the previous nights ‘out in the bush’, my stay at La Palme was quite pleasant. The bedroom was large, well put together, and clean. The bathroom was spacious and functional, but it didn’t feel as cleanly as I would have liked. The dining areas were large with plenty of seating; that was a plus for my large group. The service was professional and quick, and the food was very good. The location is convenient as there are activities and restaurants within only a few minutes. Overall, I am happy with the service, location, and accommodations, but I would have liked the bathrooms to be slightly more cleanly.

Compared to the newer hotels/inn, LPH is old but well-kept in cleanliness. I stayed here for two nights and I am impressed with the cleanliness of this hotel. I like clean, so I look at how the hotel is kept and I am pleased. The staff were all nice, ready to help me the moment I arrived. Of course, they won't pull your luggage but carry it over their heads. The check-in went smooth and I they took me to my room. The room I reside in was huge. I am a solo traveler and I had a king size bed, with a separate living room with two bathrooms. Wow! I had a welcome plate of different types of fruits and water, of course. The bathroom was medium size with clean towels. The restaurant at this hotel is huge as well. There are a variety of dishes to choose from. One thing I like about this hotel is that they cleaned my hiking boots after I did the gorilla trekking. The employee who took care of my boots did a good job. Overall, this hotel is a nice place to stay in for a few days as you move on to your next destination.

We have been there twice for dinner and each time was absolutely excellent. Food is prepared with local fresh products in a very accurate way. Service was impeccable and very thoughtfull. One of our best meal in Rwanda. We did not sleep here though

This was a very basic 1960s style hotel and room, completely lacking any atmosphere. The mini bar and safe in each room were not present in ours. The food was adequate but not good. We discovered the bar in the grounds outside the dining room which served local beer with cheerless service. Spirits had been hidden away by the time we finished dinner and our night-cap could only be provided after searching for the required bottles.
