Everything about this hotel was good, except for the fact that they do not provide bathroom slippers despite claiming on their website to provide basic bathroom amenities. Also, the waiting time in the restaurant was relatively long.

Maybe not the absolute best place in town but definitely worth the visit. I’m not at my first visit there and not at my last either. Good place to go with friends.

The atmosphere in the restaurant and the outdoor terrace is always upbeat. My favorite meal here is breakfast, which offers an abundance of fresh and carefully prepared food in an atmosphere that feels both professional and elegant. If you are someone who enjoys lingering after breakfast, for a chat with other travelers or for some journal writing, this is a perfect place. The art work is beautiful as well, and the staff is extremely helpful.
Also, the outdoor terrace provides a great people-watching spot, and its central location makes it a great place to meet friends for evening drinks. The patrons include a good mix of Rwandan business people and muzungus, just in case you, like me, prefer not to go to places that are all tourists. The playground in the courtyard makes it a great place for parents to let kids burn excess energy so that dinner later can be more relaxing.
Though I loved the general feeling of being right "in the heart of things," the street commotion kept me awake when I stayed here. The rooms are clean and extremely well appointed, but I would not stay here again because Chez Lando costs more than my favorite Kigali hotels and is simply too noisy. If you do stay here, I recommend asking for one of the quieter rooms.
