We were there for five days for a small meeting of 15 people. The conference room next to reception was plenty large enough, with good wifi. Wifi coverage was pretty good in the restaurant area, iffier in the guest rooms. The rooms were basic but comfortable -- until the last morning when there was a thunderstorm, and several of the...

We stayed for one night at Bethanie Hotel. Great location and had no issue with the room. Everything else was terrible. The restaurant menu is over-priced, menu items are not what they serve (Cajun chicken strips are a mayo chicken salad with nothing Cajun about them) the breakfast buffet was almost empty when we showed up at 7:30 AM. We...

We spent a night as a family in three rooms directly on the lake. The rooms are simple but at the price they charge come as a very fair deal. Clean beds, clean toilet, working shower. Breakfast is again simple but ok. We also had dinner, which was of a surprisingly good quality. The wine list is poor. Bring your...

Whilst it boasts amazing location, especially for sunrise view, the staff, most notably the reception is anything but welcoming. After all the smiles I enjoyed in Rwanda hospitality, the women at reception need to smile ! F&B service seems a bit clueless, the supervisor sits at the breakfast table and helps himself to the buffet whilst I was still eating....

We stayed for a quick night after spending a week working in Kigali. It was a great location on the lake and easy access by motos. The room was large, clean and had great hot water. We enjoyed relaxing on the balcony and taking a boat ride from the dock below. Everyone was helpful and friendly- we would not hesitate...

We arrived in Kibuye/Karongi (the names changed recently) by bus from Nyungwe Forest, which was very easy to catch. When we got into town, a moto taxi driver took us to a few hotels to find a place we could put up our tent, but it started to thunder so we asked him to take us to a nice, affordable...

Such a spectacular location and such a run down place! We got a room right at the lake shore and the room was a disaster! Broken sink, no water and mold practically everywhere. It's such a shame they don't renovate the rooms as the location is simply amazing:(

I have been here last may and I really liked the view of lake Kivu and together with my friends we enjoyed to visit Napoleon island where I first watched birds! It was fantastic time for bird watching!

have stayed several times in Bethanie already, in different rooms. The rooms are functional, nothing charming at all. There is an old and a new wing of the hotel. When I stayed in the new wing the room was completly mosquito infested. The tent-like small mosquito nets are not very helpful. Generally a clean place with friendly staff but a...
