Our Review

Despite being known as a four star hotel, we consider Ubumwe Grande Hotel a mid-range property on our end mainly because of the amenities and general hotel environment. We recommend it as a good hotel for guests who would like a hotel that is in close proximity to all the major centers in Kigali city as a lot of the city landmarks can be accessed on foot from the hotel.

For our guests who would like an accommodation that is more personal, laid back and quiet we usually recommend other accommodations as Ubumwe Grande Hotel is a large property with an active and modern hotel setting.
