As the name of the hotel goes, 'Best Outlook' you indeed get the best views of Bujumbura. Stationed upon a hillside you will get expansive views of the City of Bujumbura below, right up to the shores of Lake Tanganyika bordering the horizon.

The hotel serves both traditional and continental meals at the restaurant. The local dishes are unbeatable!!! Excellent food, really well prepared, really tasty. I ate and ate and ate. The fruits and fruit juices out of this world. Try them, each and every day!!!

Room tip: All views nice.

Wonderful, caring staff. Amazing view. Room and internet connectivity excellent for Buj. Would simply like to have equivalent security at gate as found at other hotels in Bujumbura.
Best place to feel the need to exercise; just follow all the other runners up the hill every morning!

I came to the hotel not because of the ratings for sure, but because i saw it during one night while passing and i love it! the view from the place is amazing, you can see all of Bujumbura + the lake, as i said at night the place looks really cozy...
the rooms are big, but beds are hard, big balcony with the room.
Breakfast is good, not amazing but they have varieties.
pool is very ice actually, no gym but just a treadmill ( it was enough for me!)
the stuff is very friendly and the fact that the owner Abdel Moussai will come and introduce him self to the customers is a plus...
the employees although friendly need some more experience...

Perched on the a hill just below the University, Best Outlook provides a great panoramic of Bujumbura and Lake Tanganyika. The rooms are basic with the higher levels on the west side of either building providing the best views. The location is convenient and the staff friendly. The big negatives here ... food and beds. Breakfast is very basic and repetitive and the restaurant not quite up to the value offered by other hotels in town. In terms of mattresses, if you like ultra firm, this place will suit you! A fitness room and reliable internet would also be an improvement.

Room tip: The rooms are basic with the higher levels on the west side of either building providing the best views.
