Charming hotel in the center of Kigali
Amazing place and very welcoming. This is my second time here. First time was in 2015. I absolutely love this place. People here are incredibly wonderful and treat you lovely. Area is very safe and in walking distance to many places you want to see in Kigali. I live every single person who work here, and great respect to the owner, William.

Good 6.0
Helpful staff but expensive.
Delightful staff and delicious breakfast but this hotel was expensive for what it was. No pool, room was small without a view. Have stayed in 2 other hotels in area which were better value but hotel was full when we stayed and the area of Kigali is beautiful.

Small and friendly , would stay again
Only there for one night after a business trip but glad I chose this hotel. Simple but clean room with everything I needed. Enjoyed a nice meal and a beer in the evening. Receptionist was really helpful and cheerful including sorting out a good driver for me and looking after my bags before going to the airport

Exceptional 10.0
Perfect base for exploring Rwanda
The hotel is a microcosm of Rwanda - spotlessly clean, well managed and oozing good humour and charm. The reception staff is supremely helpful and there is a reasonably priced restaurant on-site with excellent fare. A perfect base for exploring Kigali and Lake Kivu!

Ups and downs
Building work disrupted us but that will be finished soon. Apart from that it was a lovely stay.

Perfectly fine place to stay in Kigali
Perfectly fine place to stay in Kigali. In a good area. Friendly and helpful staff. I don't know hotels in Kigali very well, but I have a feeling that this one might be better value than others. On the other hand, don't expect anything luxurious. Pretty basic. Thanks for the mosquito net.
