I really liked this hotel. It is in a good location with a lots of tourists hanging out on the restaurant patio. You can walk to the market (it is a little far) and there is a good restaurant across the street called Volcano Lounge for pizza. The food at Muhabura is adequate. The chicken was not good, but their pasta dishes are fine and I had really good vegetable soup. If you can find Alberto's restaurant downtown for Italian food you should definitely go.
The rooms at Muhabura are very spacious and clean, but not fancy. The "door" to the bathroom is actually a curtain so may not provide the level of privacy most people are used to. The shower is a hand-held shower head attached to the faucet of the bathtub, so washing hair is a little bit difficult. The tub was huge if you want a bath. The bed was okay with a mosquito net, but really creaked every time you moved. There is no fan, but it cools down at night so is not necessary. The best thing about the hotel was it was very quiet and the rooms surround a really pretty garden filled with birds. Even though the hotel is a little "worn" it felt comfortable. I would stay here again.
