We stayed here 3 different times during 2 weeks, because it was that good. The rooms are CLEAN. The manager and everyone else who works there are friendly! We stored a bag there for a few nights while we were out of town without any problems. And I actually really liked the food there - try the bananas with vegetables and peas. It's not fancy, but it's simple and satisfying. And was different each of the 4 times we ordered it.
It's a fairly short walk into the city center (make a left when you leave the hotel to walk up the steep hill, which will take about 15 minutes to get the UTC, or if you make a right, you can take a longer more circuitous route). We even walked to Heaven and New Cactus (though New Cactus is a bit far).
Only slightly negative is that the internet was often slow or spotty, but that seemed to be life in Rwanda - I couldn't find anywhere with consistent and (relatively) fast internet except Shokola Lite.
To sum up: definitely recommended. Great value!
