The accommodations are homey and charming with comfy beds, lots of closet space and rustic furnishings. The staff were... More

Our flight arrived in Kigali after midnight, so the front desk guy stayed awake to wait for us and give us our room. The room was lovely and comfortable, although in the morning we discovered a slow leak in the bathroom that created a small puddle. They repaired it quickly.

The rooms were clean, simple and comfortable. The location was a nice walk to the city center and the staff was helpful and professional. I ate dinner there and the food was delicious. The breakfast was also very good.
