“Great food!”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

This is a new hotel and it shows when you walk in. Its not as big as the 5 star hotel in town but it seems very well done. Unfortunately I only went to the restaurant and do not know how the rooms and the rest of the hotel look. The restaurant is decorated tastefully although I have to say that despite the seats being very comfy, they are too low to sit in and uncomfortable to eat from. The food though is in a word 'awesome'. It's nothing fancy just extremely well made home cooking style. The food was served buffet style and included chicken, rice, plantain, vegetable soup, creamed spinach and more. I have to say that that is the first buffet that everything was worth having a second helping and I mean everything including the soup. I had to stop myself from being greedy and putting too much knowing I would not be able to finish it. I am not really a sweet tooth so did not have dessert but those who had it enjoyed it although most people were already stuffed from the food. Their cocktails were not really anything worth writing home about (I love vodka cocktails so know a good one) although I am yet to find a place in Kigali that has decent cocktails. I would definitely go to this hotel for a meal again and again.

This hotel is new and large. While I was there it appeared that there weren’t many guests staying there which meant the hotel was quiet. The rooms are comfortable and large and there is free wifi throughout the hotel. That said I did not get a good wifi signal in my room throughout most of my stay. There is a reasonably sized bar but most people will sit on the terrace by the restaurant in the evenings overlooking the large swimming pool. The food is in the restaurant is average as I wouldn’t say it is great. However you will be well watered and fed at this establishment as some of the food portions are large. The waiting and reception staff are very helpful.

The location of the hotel is also good, it is close to key parts of Kigali City and a reasonable distance (15 minutes drive) from the airport.

I was on a consulting trip with about 20 other people and we stayed at this hotel for 12 days. The service was great. The location suited us because our primary clients were walking distance from the hotel.

The hotel had some internet problems, and the output from the kitchen wasn't consistent, but I will certainly look at staying at this hotel in the future. There's a swimming pool, a conference room, and plenty of place to sit and do work or relax.

It is in a safe neighborhood. There are a number of really good restaurants within walking distance. The MTN Center, located less than a mile away, has a super market, a couple of bars, a Bourbon Coffee, and a place to buy and register phone sim cards in order to get them working.

Room Tip: Pool facing would also be east facing - if you like morning sunlight.
