Fair 4.0
Sad place
No shampoo or amenities. Dark and dingy. Front desk was supposed to send someone 3 different times and no one showed up. Sad place.

Poor 2.0
Run down
We were placed in an older building adjacent to the newer, nicer hotel. It was the “garden room” and was very old and run down.

Excellent hotel only a 10 minute walk from town
This excellent property is centrally located in the heart of Kigali. My garden room was very spacious (with full living room) and comfortable, with powerful air conditioning and wifi. The breakfast buffet is particularly lavish, and the Sky lounge has incredible views over the city. Highly recommended! The only thing I would suggest is upgrading the bathrooms, which were aged and past their years.

Great Stay
My wife and I were happy about our stay at Urban by City Blue. It was good value for the price we paid. We had stayed at another boutique hotel in Kigali in July for $5 less but our experience there was not as good as Urban. At Urban we found a clean hotel with a spacious and welcoming lobby. Our check in was very quick which was good as we were tired from our travel. The receptionists at the lobby were very friendly. The room was very good, spacious and had a comfortable bed. The bathroom was very clean too with hot water. It was very convenient to have the hotel restaurant called The Bistro above as it provided very nice breakfast (included in price) and had a nice view with fresh air and lounge sitting area from where we could do some work. The restaurant enabled us to easily host our guests. The WiFi in the hotel was good too. The neighborhood in which the hotel is located is quiet & secure and it was easy to walk to the Marriott Hotel and the Serena Hotel at which we had meetings.

An amazing stay
The rooms are neat and clean, the beds comfortable, and the bathroom is wonderful . Checking-in and checking-out is effortless. The reception staff are great. The restaurant and bar are really nice with a wonderful view. The menu seems endless and the food was prepared according to the order and tasted really good. I will use this hotel again in future
