We stayed 3 nights at Paradis Malahide. The staff and service were excellent. The hotel and room not so good. The good things included the staff as already mentioned, the food was pretty good, the setting was lovely. The linens and towels were clean but the room smelled like a root cellar. I am pretty sure the room was clean... More

We stayed for one night in October and when. We arrived we went straight to the lakeside for a pizza lunch. As others have said, the food takes a long time but order early and relax and enjoy the surroundings (not difficult to do). The rooms/cottages were very stylish and clean, we loved staying in them. I think other people's... More

Paradis Malahide is very close to Paradise! :) It’s an amazing place right next to the lake shore. Food is served right at the water if you want to or at their own beach. Rooms are spacious and tidy. Staff is very friendly, funny, and attentive. Food is also excellent, however, don’t go for quick lunch… It usually takes 45-55... More

Paradis Malahide is paradise indeed! This is one of those hidden gems... Located in the old resort town of Gisenyi, Paradis offers a fun, quirky, unique, and absolutely stunning place to explore the city and appreciate Lake Kivu. The rooms at Paradis are located in individual chalets, and are simple, comfortable, and attractive (they have great showers!!). Most chalets also... More

My 6-month old baby and I stayed at Paradis for the weekend: the hut was really cosy and clean, with a fantastic view on the lake. Completely calm and relaxing. Food was fresh, tasty and healthy. All staff members were attentive and really ready to help me with the baby. I will definitely come back with my husband as well!

Probably the worst quality/price ratio that I ever experienced Dark and very tight room, uncomfortable mattress, clogged bathroom and annoying sympathy from the staff. Wasn't able to sleep well because of the noisy ceiling. Don't want to wonder what was there. Breakfast was so so but the wood plates knives spoons and fork were a no no.
