This time we had a good time my in-laws and I while we were visiting, the service was fine it's just that it would be much better if there were more than one person working in the restaurant so that service would be quicker

the service was slow, but since I am used to faster service in US, I will say it was fresh and very good! The dessert was also very very good...everything tasted like it was made for us right then...so don't give too much creedence to my "slow" remark.

Just looking for advice on how to book a room. Cannot find anything online? I have a phone number in lonely planet but difficult to call. Any response to how people booked would be helpful. I posted this in the Q and A as well. Nick

I enjoyed staying here with my partner. While the room was very basic - large but not super comfortable - the restaurant was fun to spend time in. Our waiter was very friendly. Wifi didn't work in the rooms (even if the guidebooks says they have it).

I stayed for a night and that was enough. The room I had was large, dimly lit and just about clean. It was however quiet and cooled down enough in the evening to sleep quite well. The wifi reaches some of the rooms and is OK. They do accept credit cards. The food in the restaurant is quite good. Breakfast...

Due to a late booking we had to stay in a appartement at the cost of US$ 50. The room was nice, but none of the doors could be closed if you didn't lock them. The water was not working when we were there, but we got buckets of water from the guards. There were no internet at first, and...

The time we stayed at the hotel we were a couple travelling through Rwanda. As you probably see there isnt alot of options in Huye/Butare. We took a chance and stayed here after arriving into town on a coaster - this is located next to one of the local intercity bus terminals. On the main rd is their new fancy...

We were coming from Bujumbura and decided to have a break at this hotel which is situated right in the middle of Huye town and on the highway. Descent place. You have a perfect view of the sights and sounds of this university town. There was a major facelift given to this colonial place to turn it into a "modern"...

We were in Rwanda for two weeks over the holidays and this was our least favorite hotel at which we stayed. It wasn't horrible, and I wouldn't rate it 'poor' by any means, but it was below average for the price range. That said, Huye/Butare is not the nicest town we stopped in and there just aren't a lot of...
