A great location for central Kigali.

I arrived late on Sunday and left fairly early the following day. It is therefore not really possible to give a comprehensive account. However for the time I was there the staff were extremely attentive, the rooms comfortable and the food good.

Very nice hotel

Since we only stayed for an overnight we didn't have an opportunity to use all their services but everything was fine. Room was a typical hotel/motel room. Very Clean.
The breakfast was fabulous! Everything you could possibly want to eat for breakfast was available!

We did have dinner and lunch as well. Good food. We did sit out under the large canopy near the bar and it was a lovely respite from the city.

I would recommend it to future clients.

Good quality hotel with quality restaurant

High quality hotel - check in was very easy and efficient, room was comfortable and quiet. The main bar area was a little noisy and difficult to get a meal. Ate at the La Panorama restaurant - meal was excellent but service a little slow. View across Kigali is excellent.

SImba from Primate Safaris was excellent - really went the extra mile to ensure we had a wonderful trip. He made our trip very easy and informative. He was really interesting to talk to regarding the genocide and the subsequent reconciliation. So overall meeting him added significantly to what was intended primarily as a visit to the gorillas.

Simba also kept watch on other guests and ensured that they were looked after. The morning of our second visit to the gorillas two guests had some difficulty and Simba made sure they were looked after even though they were not his responsibility. He was known to many of the guests and very popular. He is customer focussed and has a lot to offer to tourism in Rwanda.

Hotel des Mille Collines review

A bit worn down and the service in the pool bar is really slow. However the service in the reception is good and they do serve nice big breakfeats

Hotel des Mille Collines review

Clean, comfortable. The hotel had key card problems. However, we could leave our room and they brought us our key card.

Beautiful dining room on the top of the hotel. Good food. The only drawback was that our room was just above the outdoor restaurant. There was very loud music (albeit, good American music) until 9:00. Thank goodness it ended early since we had to be up by 4.

Nice hotel with beautiful grounds

Average to nice hotel with friendly people and the most beautiful grounds.

Hard to believe there was so much tragedy in that area. That horror is behind them but they do not forget.
