“For the biz traveler”
Reviewed April 24, 2013 via mobile

I'm was very skeptic when partners recommended and booked me in the hotel, but the minute I saw the charming little hotel I liked it...
Excellent location neat the city center, very clean and spacious rooms with all modern and new flat screens( all french. Free chanels) and abroad new split air conditioners. The service was excellent, so was the morning croissants and the fruits plates but to order al la carte it takes too long! Sérieusement...
Hotel needs to fit a breakfast buffet, more efficient and convenient to clients, despite all the clean measures Mosquitos are terrible (well it is the same in Bujumbura).
Excellent wifi everywhere in the hotel...for those of you who travel for biz and do not want to spend a fortune chandelier is the place.

Stayed April 2013, traveled on business

The Staff at the Hotel were very friendly and it is really clean. I ve been staying for 4 days at Hotel Le Chandelier. The stay was really nice and so are the staff, in the end I was almost sorry to leave.
Upon arriving I found myself in a valley of smiles from the very first person I met Audrey. She explained everything I had available and gave me a cable for internet access and the password to use the service very quickly.
Entering the room, it was clean and quiet (couldn't hear a noise). The bathroom is also spacious and very clean. The shower seems to be bigger than my house.
The bed was one thing that if I could take home, I would have done. Hard in the right places and comfortable....
Very rich and tasty breakfast, I love scrambled eggs,and I found the best around. Chocolate Brioche also were fantastic. With each breakfast I became more spoiled.

Spent 5 nights at this hotel and was definitely a great place.
- Staff were extremely friendly & helpful round the clock, room was very spacious and well furnished with working area, Cable TV, AC.
- The Hotel had a good WiFi network throughout which was extremely helpful as Internet access was generally difficult elsewhere in Bujumbura.
- The restaurant was good as well, food was all fresh and served well. (not a lot of variety being a vegetarian though).
- English is not well-spoken in Burundi but most staff were conversant, and Swahili & French are common too apart from local language, Kirundi.
- Airport pickup & drop-off service was spot on too.
- The city seemed small hence everything appeared within 5-10 minutes by cab. The new Kenya Commercial Bank HQ was just a 10min walk.

Definitely recommended for business travelers. No swimming pool/ gym.
