Okay, let's put the historical aspects aside - this place is a dump. The building itself is like a Soviet architectural nightmare from the 60s...so, nothing like that colonial grandeur seen in "Hotel Rwanda".
And everything else is mediocre...for example, during my stay there was frequent electricity breaks, the TV did not work at all, the service was extremely slow. They have a long way to go to anything close to 4-star or so...
A big warning: the hotel is still, after several years, under heavy construction and renewation (e.g. pool and gym were closed).
