10.0 Excellent
Pros: Best meal and accommodation in Africa for the past 2 years.... travelling constantly in Africa. The meals were out of this world - tender steak and fresh fish - prepared as requested. Hotel is owner managed with hands-on attendance to confirm and assure you of all your needs. The hotel should rather be classified as a Lodge ***** in the centre of the capital, where the atmosphere is Mediterranean, very relaxing and all finishes are of a very high quality.

9.3 Excellent
Pros: A lot of the staff spoke English, French and Kirundi, which made it much easier to communicate! I was thankful for that. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. The hotel draws many government officials and important meetings which are held there and make it a very popular and exciting place to stay. During our 1 week stay, we heard church choirs and even got to see the famous Burundi drummers play there for a government meeting that took place one afternoon. The breakfasts were delicious with a wide variety of meat, vegetables, fruit, juices, coffee and tea. The hotel grounds are just beautiful along the lake. Traveling with our 5 year old son, I greatly appreciated how there were 2 pools (including a shallow kid pool), a playground and beach access. Our friends in Burundi said this was the nicest hotel in the whole country. I only wish the price were lower. =) We had a wonderful stay, though.

8.3 Excellent
Pros: Great breakfast. Very helpful taxi from hotel. Nice garden and swimming pool.
Cons: A bit expensive but that s the normal for Bujumbura. Some shampoo or products in the bathroom would have been good.
3.8 Mediocre
Pros: I really wanted to like this hotel. The location is good - on the lake, but close to the center. The grounds are well maintained and the restaurant on the lake (which serves good breakfast) is a highlight of the stay. The terrace restaurant is also nice and the staff in both locations are very pleasant. There is also a nice pool (when it is working) and a gym.
Cons: I stayed here for 5 nights on a business trip. Out of these five nights, twice there was no water at all in my room and I had to shower in a different room (one of them with cold water only). The electricity was completely out for several hours one of the days. The internet did not work in my room for three days. The pool was closed for two days due to some sort of maintenance. The towel racks and handle bars in my bathroom were falling out of the wall and the lamps near my bed were broken. The safe did not work and was never fixed. On top of all of the inconveniences caused, the staff and management were clearly not very interested in improving my stay. I had specifically paid for a pool view room, but ended up in one without such a view, but was charged for a pool view room. As I was leaving, after all of the inconveniences caused that were not compensated, the hotel tried to charge me $20 for the taxi ride from the airport. I refused to pay and asked to speak to the manager, but was denied this request and physically barred from leaving until I paid the $20. Really a customer service embarrassment and a hotel I would not recommend to anyone visiting Bujumbura. There are many nicer options.
