I stayed on and off for two weeks at this hotel will in Rwanda on a consultant assignment. I had never heard of it before this stay. I found it to be a lovely place, although maybe a bit on the expensive side $75, it was very clean, friendly and hot water was always there. It is a typical African hotel so expect a satin bedspread, hand held showers and heavy drapes. But it is indeed better than most. The table and chairs outside of the room are very private with a lovely view of the gardens.
The breakfast was good, cheese, various breads (once some nice fresh rolls) fruit, pineapple, bananas, and paw paw and hard boiled eggs. The coffee is strong and a nice refreshing change from Nescafe.
The best part about staying at the Iris guesthouse was the service. Everytime I came back they greeted me warmly, the service was prompt, and they accommodated my requests when possible. I didn't have an electrical adaptor and they provided on and I didn't have a camera USB cable and the manager went out of his way to find me one that would work. The staff is the reason I am writing this review-they were refreshingly attentive without being too much.
