I was only at this hotel for one night, however, my room was very large and extremely clean. The buffet breakfast was European style with many cheese and meat selections, as well as fresh, made-to-order omelettes by the chef. Local, fresh coffee was extra nice to see. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful.

Restaurant and bar separated which is good. Prices are fine as the portions are very large. The service and speed of the staff was a bit mixed, went here on two different occasions so I experienced both. Very nice burger and pasta was okay too

We had dinner at Chez Lando and were satisfied but not overwhelmed. The food is typical (brochettes and meat dishes, some pasta and rice as well). Service was extremely slow even for Kigali standards. There is free wifi to pass the time but even that was not enough to make up for our extended stay. I would give Chez Lando... More
