What we think of the Kigali Marriott Hotel (Our Review)

The Kigali Marriott Hotel is a great luxurious hotel and our guests that have stayed here have given us amazing feedback on the service and facilities. Guests specifically love the buffet breakfast and the accessibility of the hotel from the airport, most guests are usually tired after a long flight and on arrival at Kigali International Airport prefer to transfer to a nearby hotel that is a short drive.

The hotel is modern and the rooms are representative of a hotel feel so it offers more of a business accommodation facility feel than a personal feel. The hotel is easily accessible to other areas in Kigali City, one can take a walk to nearby banks, supermarkets and Kigali restaurants making it easy for guests to move around.
