“Adequate accommodation for the cost conscious expat traveller”
Reviewed 28 November 2012

The hotel occupies the 2nd and 3rd floors of this centrally located Bujumbura building. I paid $50 per night for a reasonably clean, air conditioned room with self contained bath, free and reliable internet, a ten or twelve channel cable TV, and French breakfast. I was one of several NGO type expatriates staying in the hotel and included some English speakers. That should give the reader an idea of the level of hotel quality and service: adequate for the cost conscious traveller with low expectations. The building could use a good scrubbing and paint job and a few of the rooms and a section of the upper floors smelled of mold. My engineer had to move his room once because of the moldy smell coming from the roof and adjacent walls. I wouldn't advise staying in any room that suggests mold.

Bujumbura is not a large town and the other expat haunts are not far, a 15 to 20 minute walking distance to the main boulevard where several of the popular clubs and restuarants are located; not far from the memorial to the fallen Presidents. Our work kept us out of the hotel until the evening and I can't comment if it the hotel is adquate for those who have to spend alot of time in their room. The room was large enough and everything functioned and I slept well. There is a very nice coffee shop on the opposite side of the block where once can spend quality internet work time.
