We stayed for a quick night after spending a week working in Kigali. It was a great location on the lake and easy access by motos. The room was large, clean and had great hot water. We enjoyed relaxing on the balcony and taking a boat ride from the dock below. Everyone was helpful and friendly- we would not hesitate...

We arrived in Kibuye/Karongi (the names changed recently) by bus from Nyungwe Forest, which was very easy to catch. When we got into town, a moto taxi driver took us to a few hotels to find a place we could put up our tent, but it started to thunder so we asked him to take us to a nice, affordable...

Such a spectacular location and such a run down place! We got a room right at the lake shore and the room was a disaster! Broken sink, no water and mold practically everywhere. It's such a shame they don't renovate the rooms as the location is simply amazing:(

I have been here last may and I really liked the view of lake Kivu and together with my friends we enjoyed to visit Napoleon island where I first watched birds! It was fantastic time for bird watching!

have stayed several times in Bethanie already, in different rooms. The rooms are functional, nothing charming at all. There is an old and a new wing of the hotel. When I stayed in the new wing the room was completly mosquito infested. The tent-like small mosquito nets are not very helpful. Generally a clean place with friendly staff but a...

The Bethanie has much to offer. I recommend requesting room 42. It's the top floor suite which overlooks all of Lake Kivu. And at around $45 USD a night, it will not break the bank. The rooms are spacious and the beds are huge. Each room is outfitted with a mosquito net, TV (which, with so much to explore, is...

Lovely location just next to the water. but a bit outside city centre Kibuye. Easy to go by moto tho (motorcycle taxi). Big buffé breakfast even tho we were just a few couples there. Very simple rooms but clean. Water availability for showering etc was, when we were there, a bit difficult. And no hot water at that time either.

Beautiful location by the lake, perfect for our budget. Sadly the boat which we planned to take further to Gisenyi where out of order and the possibilities of going with buss were limited. The staff at Centre Bethanie were helpful and arranged transportation with a local buss, a long but exciting journey.

We had a wonderful stay at Centre Bethanie - we were a group of three friends staying in a room with three single beds. Our room did not have a great view but the property more than made up for it. We spent many happy hours gazing out on the water, reading and eating. We found the whole thing to...
