Gorillas Lake Kivu Hotel, Gisenyi
The staffers are excellent. The spa is coming soon and a massage will be very welcome. There needs to be a restroom on the first floor for customer convenience. The Lake Kivu garden is amazing, I wish there were more activities to occupy my curiosities, and more furniture to enjoy the garden. Really, the customer service, care and hospitality were the best! I wish there was more creativity on the buffet although it met my needs. I will hold you to the offer of the coupon off and I'm looking for my reimbursement due to emergency early check out. Thank you Mr. Wagula and staff. VMc

Got charged twice and it took 3 days to recover "most of the Money. I had to go 3 hours away to their other hotel in Kilgali and revisit there twice to get the refund Unable to simply void the credit card as a no sale. The hotel grounds are lovely and the area is great for walking and boat touring on Lake Kivu

Nice Simple hotel. The wifi worked well and I enjoyed breakfast. The water pressure in the showers is incredible. The views over the pool from the room also nice and pleasant. I'd say the room didn't have any wash cloths, but no major problem. The TV is also outdated. Pretty simple, classic, not extra about the hotel, but staying in Gisenyi is always nice.

Friendly staff. Nice location and pool. Daft design in shower, the shower curtain stops 6 inches from floor therefore room flooded each time shower is used - housekeeping staff must be well fed up of that kila siku.
