The accommodation was lovely. It is beautifully appointed and the views of the city by and night are brilliant. We have hesitation recommending this hotel to others. Minor problems that needed to be fixed but on the whole a lovely experience.
Though the hotel is a bit dated, what it lacks in modern amenities it makes up in service and surroundings. The location is great, a short drive from the airport and nearby the government and commercial centers of Kigali. The grounds are garden-like and expansive. Set atop a hill with territorial views of surrounding Kigali, the grounds include a large pool and tennis courts. Breakfast is served buffet style on the patio where Crested Cranes mingle with you. The hotel serves a variety of travelers from NGO Ex-pats and Aid workers, Gorilla tourists and business people. One feature of the hotel is a set of four modern elevators. My experience with the service was great with a free airport shuttle and help tracking down an electrical adapter.

While not right in the midst of downtown, the Luxury Hotel Rwanda is not too far away to be within reach of key attractions. It was a bit tough to find (we had our own vehicle and were driving from Gisakura--had to follow a motorbike in once we reached the city center), but once we did it was a real delight. The staff was pleasant, the rooms were large and the bathrooms were clean (with huge tubs with jets and hot rain showers). The pool is open 24 hours, and there is a house band that is great.
Situated on a hill that overlooks Kigali (i.e. Kigali is 20 minutes away), The Manor is a newish small hotel with a pleasing poolside terrace and three restaurants. The Indian restaurant was phenomenal! The room is big, the beds comfortable and the bathroom has a shower and bathtub. Overall great stay.
