Rwanda. – With three nights in Kigali and a budget to consider, I stayed at the Inside Afrika Boutique Hotel. A sweet hotel well positioned hotel with 9 large en suite rooms, a pool, great views towards the city and friendly efficient service. Drinks are for sale at reception and a generous breakfast provides daily sustenance.
I met the owner who charmed me into believing that he had no greater priority than my happiness. That I could assure him of. The perfect spot. Exuding Rwandan charm, like he did.
Inside Afrika doesn’t have a restaurant but they are within easy and safe walking distance to a few good ones. I recommend CityBlue Urban Boutique Hotel for sundowners and a meal. Or Hotel des Milles Collines for a treat. The hotel can organise a driver to take you to nearby attractions and offer hotel transfers.
Basically I couldn’t have wanted for more. Affordable, comfortable, spacious, friendly, clean. Those are all buzz words when it comes to accommodation, no matter where it is. Recommended.
My lovely room opening out onto the garden.
Lovely place for relaxing after a big day, that’s what I was doing.

Notes. Carry cash, the credit card machine doesn’t always work. The wifi is in and out of action. I took a local sim card with data on arrival at the airport and used my phone as a hotspot. Easier. For plug-points, the same as the UK.
