Patrick and his staff were very helpful and friendly, from the airport pickup to the food and getting general information. Its a nice spot where you have a great view over the city. The rooms are clean, breakfast is great and the house is very welcoming and makes it easy to meet and interact with other guests! Would recommend it to everyone staying in Kigali.

This was a quiet neighborhood and high elevation which made the evenings very comfortable. The staff was great. Also very helpful. The room was comfortable and the lounge was very comfortable.

Fantastic place to stay in Kigali. Patrick and the entire staff are amazing. The new renovations are only going to make this an even better base for your time in Kigali. Top recommendation.
