Gorillas Lake Kivu is a newish hotel and is maintained to a high standard. It may not have the dramatic lake front of the Serena but the location is good, with views of the lake and nice gardens, and the price at US$80 is certainly better value for money (although the pool wasn't working when I was there). Friendly and helpful staff make the stay even more pleasant. Food in the restaurant was good although it took a bit of time to arrive, breakfast on the patio was very nice though.
My room was a little on the small side, but very clean and with nice decoration. Gorillas is a short walk to other bars, restaurants and hotels and is a stones throw from the public beach which offers beautiful views over the lake and to the hills of DRC. The lake front also offers beautiful sunsets.
Like almost everywhere else I stayed in Rwanda, there were very few other guests which made for limited ambience, but can't fault the hotel for that. Would recommend happily if you're looking for a more upmarket option without breaking the bank.More
