I spent three nights at Hotel Elila, attending a conference convened just outside of Bukavu. The hotel room given to me was not much larger than a closet, had no mosquito netting on the windows (which faced west...so the room was a furnace by mid-afternoon, not such much as a fan, and the water was made available in the bathroom only if I made the long trek down the uneven stairs (being located on the top floor) to reception to ask them to please turn on the water (oh, you really need to speak French - not a problem for me, but it was for others attending the conference). Breakfast was extremely limited, and I arrived late one morning to find no food left other than white bread. I took no other meals there, but those who did reported the food to be terrible. The only furniture was a bed and a tiny desk suited for an office more than a hotel room. The staff did try to please...but many of the workers had only limited French. The only nice thing I can say is that I had a nice view of the lake - but I have stayed other places in Bukavu which also had great views....and much nicer rooms and facilities for the same or lower costs!
