"First off, understand that this star rating system is all subjective. I choose to rate my reviews based upon overall experience as compared to what else is on offer. That said, Orchids' hit one of of the park with this offering.
I'm writing this now, sitting on the terrace, on the second day of my..." four day sejourn here, and I am rebelling in the view from the terrace. Hard to explain how lovely and serene it is. It is unlike any other hotel I have stayed in in Africa, and that is saying a lot because I've seen my fair share.
Ok, not to be too long winded... I simply can't understand the ire of some of the other reviews, as my experience here has been nothing but but fantastic since my arrival. The reception is an angel; the restaurant staff are attentive and polite. The setting is out of this world. Everything is expensive, but get used to it, this is DRC.

"I needed a hotel for 2 nights in Bukavu. I thought the Orchid sounded expensive so booked into the nearby Elila. I reserved a room at $90 per night but when I checked in it had been taken by a government delegation so I was offered a room at $120 for one night and then $90 for the second night. The ..."rooms were very clean and well enough presented. Wireless internet was available and worked. Satellite TV in the rooms but only 3 local channels were available. I ate dinner once, French Onion soup was good. Breakfast was OK, fresh coffee was good.
Side roads in Bukavu are generally poor and Ave Kabare is no exception, rough dirt road.
From the higher bedrooms at the front you get a good view across Lake Kivu.

"I stayed at Hotel Elila while on a trip to Kahuzi-Biega National Park and enjoyed the experience. Hotel Elila's comfort and cleanliness have apparantly been exponentially emproved and a Family Suite of 4 bedrooms sleeping up to 8 persons and a spacious seating room and balcony with the view of Lake ..."Kivu added to the property. The family suite goes for only US Dollar 480 . I recommend Hotel Elila to tourists wishing to visit mountain gorillas in nearby World Heritage Site, Kahuzi-Biega National Park.
