2/10 Poor

This hotel was not open when we got there. I had no alerts from Orbits and had to have local Rwandans help us figure out how to transfer hotels. Horrible communication for this as we traveled very far to stay here and booked well in advance.

A perfect place for holiday
I had a nice time in Marasa Umubano hotel. The hotel has a serene environment and easily accessible. Although the hotel is an old one, thr rooms are comfortable and the breakfast meal was hot and fresh. The staffs were humble and willing to provide support. The airport shuttle was available to drop off at the airport
