Hotel des Mille Collines review

We were only at the hotel for one night but found it very pleasant. It was well situated in beautiful grounds. We had a snack at the bar and a few beers and the service was attentive. The breakfast service the following morning was a bit more indifferent and we had to ask for a number of basic tasks to be carried out i.e for glasses to be replaced at the juice station.

On check out we were informed that the credit card machine did not work so we had to pay for our extras in cash. This was not a problem at this stage as Expert Africa had warned us that it was not always possible to utilise credit cards in Rwanda so we were carrying significantly more cash than we normally would on a holiday.

Hotel des Mille Collines review

there was a lot of noise from the open bar below our room at night as there were gaps in the patio doors.

Breakfasts were a disappointment.

Hotel des Mille Collines review

Refurbished common parts look smart.

Poolside bar area is lovely. The pool was about to reopen after refurbishment. Great location.

Good food and service in the Panorama restaurant.

Central hotel in Kigali

An excellent location and a perfectly acceptable hotel.

The room was fairly ordinary and there was a slight feeling of being past its best. But we had a pleasant view over the swimming pool and the garden was good for wandering around and spotting birds and flowers. Breakfast was excellent with spectacular views over Kigali from the 4th floor restaurant.

We settled on the pool bar for lunch/dinner and this was a very pleasant spot to relax and enjoy drinks and food. Getting attention at the front Reception Desk was not always easy (the light in our bathroom needed repair).

Overall, not exactly 5-star but it had everything we needed and I would happily recommend it.
