This comfortable hotel is located in the heart of Ruwi and is great for transport - the Ruwi bus station is just down the road, and it is opposite a large taxi rank (make sure not to catch a taxi from the actual hotel though - the price the drivers at the lobby give you are inflated, and the desk staff go along with it).
The breakfast is amazing too, completely delicious and you can certainly cobble together some healthy wholemeal options which will keep you full for most of the day.
The staff on reception can be a bit hit and miss with their local knowledge, so if you're an independent traveller don't rely on their ability to help you out. You'll most likely need to find your own way around.
