“Friendly and quiet”
Reviewed 16 August 2013

Stayed here in June 2013 - my first two nights after arriving in Rwanda were spent here. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. For my first breakfast there was a power outage but staff was creative in preparing whatever they could not needing electricity. They kept apologizing even though it was not their fault at all - I am easy going when it comes to that sort of thing.

Hotel was clean - it was noisy one morning as they were doing major construction. Other than that it was super quiet at night and I felt extremely safe - as anywhere in Rwanda (and for that matter in all of East Africa during my entire trip)!

Definitely would stay here again.

Set in a peaceful, residential area of Kigali - this hotel offers views out across surrounding residential area to the hazy hills beyond. The location is about 10 minutes drive from the airport or city centre. Motorbike taxis (Motos) and private taxis are nearby.

The ensuite bedrooms are spacious, comfortable, and tastefully furnished. All rooms have hot water, bed nets and WiFi. Some have TV and bath[tub]s. There is a dining area serving breakfasts - and other meals by arrangement. On the ground floor there is an excellent coffee shop called "Cafe Hillywood". The staff are friendly and helpful.

The building is shared with Kwetu Film Institute - a training facility for aspiring fimmakers, and organisors of the Rwanda Film Festival (held annually in July). As such the place is quite lively during the day, and the location is becoming better known.

There is one other hotel in the immediate area. Shops (and nightclub) are about 10 minutes walk downhill. other than that you are likely to need transport for eating out and getting around - but this is the same for most of Kigali.
