The room is clean and comfortable, with good wifi connection. The staff is friendly and helpful, i enjoyed my stay there. I am scoring it 4/5 because only cold breakfast available. Otherwise nice homely place to stay. Keep up the good work

I'm heading to Kigali for 4 weeks later in the year. Wouldn't stay anywhere else. I've been here twice before. Staff are so friendly. Rooms clean and spacious with mosquito nets. Food is amazing. Very safe. Overall I would highly recommend Solace.

Guesthouse is great - beds are comfortable, rooms are large. Very clean and well-taken care of. The chef is FANTASTIC, food is delicious. Some things aren't great - internet fails often, water pressure is bad, walls are thin and you can hear everything outside.

My husband and I were pleased to spend 21 days at Solace Guest House, and especially appreciated the warmth and hospitality of the staff. It provided an awesome "home base" for our time in Kigali and surrounding areas.

The Internet was an issue they on clean your room if you request but you can just leave and come back to find your room just the same way you left it. You need to know French to survive in this hotel. Otherwise you'll be explaining yourself using gestures almost every time. For food you can go out and eat.... More

In a nice area and very clean. It is not fancy, but very adequate. Has nice balconies off rooms. Breakfast is toast, fruit, ham???, boiled eggs, cereal, coffee and hot water. Christian run. Benefits widows of genocide. It is a 4 in Africa where you don't have a lot of money to spend.

Stayed here with a small missions team, perfect place. Rooms are big, beds are comfortable, warm shower ( though it's a bathtub and shower hose, you get the entire bathroom soaked, they could easily install shower curtains to prevent this). Fairly quiet place, though the nearby rooster and military team start up at 6am. Delicious food, the chef is very... More

We stayed here for four nights and it was a wonderful experience. The Guest House is very clean, beds are comfortable, and having an ensuite bathroom makes for a pleasant experience. Meals served here are outstanding and one of the great pleasures of our trip was eating breakfast on the outdoor patio, overlooking a beautiful part of the city. The... More

I've stayed at Solace Guesthouse every year since it opened, and I keep coming back because it the rooms are clean, comfortable, and spacious with hot water in the private bathrooms.

“Try to get a room that doesn't look out of the city because local dogs howl in the night. make sure your room has a cupboard with a working lock.”

“Rooms in conference center do not have balconies. Rooms in main retreat house have balconies. Those overlooking the valley have better views. No elevator and no rooms on ground floor.”

“Rooms in the 'old' building I liked much better than the ones in the new building. They are a bit more airy, I'd say, and have balconies. Choose one not too close to the kitchen, as they work till late and start back early.”
