I stayed at Landstar Hotel for a month. The hotel is about 10 minutes from everything, it was nice to hop on a moto and get everywhere easily. The hotel has an amazing service, I had to replace one of the light bulbs in the bathroom and at 11pm a maintenance guy came within 10 minutes. The bed was very... More

The hotel is conveniently located near the airport so they will provide free transport to and from at any time of day. It is just across the street from Chez Lando where I had the misfortune of staying before but let's not dwell on the past. The rooms are spacious, albeit a bit old but the best part about my...

The Landstar Hotel is a clean, welcoming place near to the airport. There doesn't seem to be much to do in the neighborhood around the hotel, but Kigali is a pretty small city so getting to interesting places is easy and affordable (about $1 for a moto-taxi from the hotel to the Genocide Memorial). The best part about the Landstar... More

Overall; poor maintenance and upkeep have reduced this potentially decent hotel into a thoroughly rundown motel (Feb 2012). We were a party of over 30 and each of us had identical experiences. One of us changed rooms 3 times in search of something better before giving up. Positive; clean reception area, very polite staff, nice large balcony for each room.... More

This hotel is conveniently situated, minutes from the airport, near to shops and restaurants and with taxis and motorbikes easy to find. The staff are unusually friendly, pleasant and helpful (although the receptionist did fail to pass on a simple message to another guest). But the facilities leave something to be desired. On two visits to the hotel I occupied... More

Wow! Its true what they say, people make the place! The staff was accommodating, friendly, and kept the hotel spotless! And the tea with honey is a nice touch when traveling through Rwanda.

The best value in Kigali. In no time we felt like family with the hotel staff and manager. Never have I seen such commitment to accommodating all our needs to assure an amazing stay in Rwanda.
