Whatever you want to do from culture, food, sightseeing and exploring the wonders of the 1000 hills country. Built...

A friend and I stayed here for one night prior to transferring to Goma for Nyiragongo and gorilla trekking and then for another three nights afterwards. It was an absolutely fantastic stay and one I would absolutely repeat in a heartbeat! The staff are all first class - super attentive and responsive. Helpful with ordering taxis, fixing the toilet (wouldn't...

Inside Afrika is a charming, quiet oasis. It is constructed with natural materials of stone, wood, and handcrafted tiles, giving it warmth and beauty. The rooms are clean, simple, spacious and comfortable. The staff is friendly and they went out of their way to accommodate our requests for taxis, phone messages, and even a very early breakfast on our final...

Enjoyable modest hotel, clean, quiet, and pleasant. Good service - Washington is very accommodating. Breakfast was nice. There's a restaurant down the street if you're there for dinner. Nice patios and pool.

The staff at this hotel are most helpful and, in particular, Washington did a great job of assisting us. It's a small hotel with a pleasant atmosphere. The rooms and public spaces are worn and shabby. Tiles are missing from the floor, the toilet needs attention etc. The owner needs to update the rooms, inside sitting area as well as...

We stayed here for 2 nights, the first was on our arrival in Rwanda and then again before leaving. We were very pleasantly surprised by the hotel. Prior to our arrival we had asked the hotel to arrange a taxi to collect us from the airport (This shouldn't cost more than $15 US) and happily there was a very nice...

Stayed here our first night in Kigali. Washington, who works the front desk, was very helpful in helping us find restaurants and arrange a driver for the next day. Beautiful view of Kigali from pool side. Not quite a "hotel" but solid guest house option. Good breakfast in the morning -- fresh fruit, omelette, yoghurt, cereal, coffee etc.

This is a lovely little hotel! The staff is wonderful, and the location is great with a stunning view over the city. The rooms are small, but each one has its own terrace, which is like an additional room. I can highly recommend it if you are looking for a hotel in Kigali in a safe area for a reasonable...

The hotel is situated in probably the best area in Kigali close to a range of restaurants and bars the location being both safe and friendly. The hotel was incredibly disappointing a 135 dollars a night is a joke the standard off accommodation is below most backpacker. The room was very dark out of 9 lights only 2 were working....

This is a B&B not a hotel, so there are no restaurant or bar facilities on site. That being said there are lots of places to eat nearby and a kiosk that sells beer/water etc., not far away (ask for a glass at the B&B). We stayed for two nights at the beginning and end of our trip to Rwanda....
