Great place to stay in Kigali. Next to the convention center and Lemigo Hotel, which is especially helpful in a city where directions rely entirely on landmarks. Great staff, great setting, and a great cafe with excellent breakfast. Plus as a cyclist I was able to immediately tap into the cycling community and find out about group rides. Downsides: very noisy when daytime staff arrive in the morning around 6am (I'm a deep sleeper and was woken up every morning). Would stay there again.

Perfect location and amazing staff to make you feel at home. The whole place got a cycling theme, and there is even a workshop. Food is probably the best I had in Kigali.
