    Rwanda Hotel Guide

    Rwanda is a land of stunning scenery and endless mountains, where dense jungles hide some of the last remaining mountain gorillas on the planet. The opportunity to see these gentle giants up close draws many visitors to the country, but once they arrive, they also fall in love with the shores of Lake Kivu, the capital city of Kigali, and the friendly locals who are eager to share their customs and traditions.

    From the windows of Rwanda hotels in Kigali, visitors can take in superb views of the terraced countryside, hills, ridges, and valleys. Safe and orderly, the city is known for its top restaurants, buzzing nightlife, and affordable prices.

    Many Rwanda hotel packages offer special discount rates on tours of the Genocide Memorial, built on a mass gravesite of over 250,000 people killed during the genocide that rocked the country in 1994. Thoughtful but heart-wrenching, the memorial is a must see for first-time visitors to Rwanda.

    If you want to experience mountain gorillas up close and personal, search for Rwanda hotel deals near Musanze, a town nestled in the Virungas volcanic mountain range. The seven volcanoes are one of the only places on earth where you can track the captivating and elusive creatures, and the densely forested slopes create some of the most beautiful landscapes on the entire continent. After hiking, trekking, tracking, and slashing your way through the dense forest for hours, coming face to face with the majestic mountain gorillas is one of life's most unforgettable moments.

    For more opportunities for wildlife viewing, find cheap hotel deals in Rwanda near the Nyungwe Forest National Park. The spectacular stretch of rainforest offers many chances to spot rare primates, including chimpanzees and black and white colobus monkeys. The park is also home to over 50 other mammal species, 275 bird species, and 270 species of trees, many of them indigenous to Rwanda. Admission includes camping at nearby Uwinka, but you can often find a cheap Rwanda hotel deal for the same price in the area.

    Some of the best hotels in Rwanda are located in Gisenyl, a resort town that caters toward rich expats and locals. Book reservations for rooms at one of the swanky hotels to get magnificent views of Nyiragongo and Lake Kivu, then spend your days sunbathing and swimming at the lovely beaches, dining at some of the country's most posh restaurants, and sipping beers at the local brewery.

    Lake Kivu Serena Hotel

    "Mediocre and overpriced"
    A very average hotel that attempts to pass itself off as a luxury hotel. Average is OK and would be fine under most circumstances. What made it unacceptable in this case were the astonishingly high prices. Both the room and the restaurant were way, way overpriced. Rarely have I paid so much at a hotel for so little. The hotel clearly suffers from a lack of competition from other hotels in its purported category. That's why it's able to get away with such mediocrity. It's essentially the only game in town. Put this hotel in Kigali, where there IS now lots of competition, and it wouldn't last very long.
