I stayed there for 4 months until I found my permanent home. A great budget save in comparison to other establishments (apparthotels etc.) stay in Bujumbura, in the safest neighbourhood of the city. Taki, the owner is always there and available to address all needs and questions in an anyhow all-in service. Great view from the restaurant towards the lake.

I arrived at the Vaya without reservation and actually had no idea where it was situated when I flagged down a taxi and asked to be taken there, assuming that it’d be near the bus station. Usually I’d start in an area with lots of hotels so I can walk around to compare prices and thought Vaya would be a... More

The most cozy place i've seen during my stay in Burundi. The owner and his family are nice persons, making you at ease. The dishes are of a rare quality and the rooms are large and tidy. The view on the city is particularly enjoyable at night, when it lightens up. I would really recommend the place for anyone who... More

Besides excellent location, the hospitality and specific care for customers is unforgettable. I wish we could visit again the Hotel Vaya. We liked the cuisine, a mixture of the Mediterranean and local cuisine, professional service.

My wife and I visited Chez Vaya as wel as other hotels in Bujumbura. Despite the price anounced by Trip Advisor, we were quotede 85 Euros by the owner. The hotel is far from the city center. The Taxi charged us 6 to go back to downtown. We did not stay a this hotel. At 85 Euros is overpriced.
