"Kigali Serena Hotel"

1 night Arrived 24 Jul 2017
"This hotel was recommended to me by Expert Africa as I had a day and one night in Kigali before leaving for Ruhengeri. Serena is a very nice, high-end hotel with great service. However, there may be lower priced hotels that Expert Africa could suggest for a single night's stay." See all these reviews: 5n in Rwanda

"Kigali Serena Hotel review"

1 night Arrived 8 Jan 2017
"An oasis in the middle of Kigali.

Sitting in the restaurant overlooking the pool area, or sitting by the pool, you would not think you were in the middle of the capital city." See all these reviews: 11n in Rwanda; 2n in Kenya

"Kigali Serena Hotel review"

2 nights Arrived 8 Oct 2016
"A fine higher-end option in Kigali.

Well located in sprawling Kigali, within walking distance of at least one good restaurant and short driving distance of the Genocide Memorial.

Attractive and comfortable outdoor areas. A very good breakfast buffet. Very attentive service." See all these reviews: 12n in Rwanda; 7n in Mozambique; 1n in South Africa

"Kigali Serena Hotel review"

1 night Arrived 3 Sep 2016
"The Serena was a nice 'multi-national' style hotel. The Restaurant and bar had a lovely terrace overlooking the pool and gardens.

The staff were helpful and friendly.

We were allocated a lovely room with a balcony - suspect they were not too busy, as on our return it was nowhere near as nice!" See all these reviews: 7n in Tanzania; 4n in Rwanda

1 night Arrived 27 Aug 2016
"Very short stop over before our flight the next morning. Didn't really use the facilities. Lovely pool and bar area, food excellent and fairly priced. Rooms comfortable however air conditioning a bit noisy. 10-15 minute drive from the airport.

Would return after a very pleasant stay." See all these reviews: 5n in Tanzania; 5n in Rwanda; 3n in Kenya
