“Not only books”
Reviewed 17 April 2013

Always new books, recent edition of magazines and nice cards available. The manager is ready to help and to order what you need, even if it's a bit complicated. Road maps from Rwanda and the greater region available.

“good selection of books”
Reviewed 15 March 2013

has books in french and english...extensive shelves on Rwanda history. Has a kids corner with some good british toddlers books. Buy postcards here (600 RWF) but no stamps, you have to go up to the post office in town to mail them. They have a large selection of tin sculptures but beware of the prices...the stickers are their inventory numbers and not prices...most in the 50,000 RWF range.

“great little shop”
Reviewed 11 March 2013

Ikirezi bookstore offers book in English , French, Kinyrwanda and dutch . You can also find travel books, postcards, few DVD ( not a big choice) some craft supplies as well as art.
Ikirezi supports local artists and you can purchase great Imigongo art, unique in Rwanda and object made of tin. The bookstore is in a building where there is a nice coffee shop; magda cafe and located walking distance from Umubano hotel.

“Great bookstore”
Reviewed 25 January 2013

This book store is in the Kacyiru neighborhood of Kigali, right near two cafes/coffee shops - Shokola Lite and Magda Cafe. I loved popping in to the store every once in a while, as it was a nice break from some of the more crowded areas of Kigali. There are books in Kinyarwanda, English and French, plus supplies like pens, markers and paper. There is also a great children's book section.
