The Saga is an interesting hotel. It’s also right in the centre of everything. Most of this somewhat boutique hotel is open to the sky and it creates a very nice atmosphere in the bar/restaurant area. They seem to have different classes of rooms and I was duly shown 8A which I took just because of the great look of the room. It had a very large bed, chairs, rugs, air-conditioning, a massive fan, TV, wardrobe and a lot of tables. It was very large and looked great. After I checked in I discovered the long bathroom which was absolutely basic. The toilet had no seat, the shower tray needed to be replaced and it was bare. Having said that it was functional, gave me place to wash and hand clothes to dry and the shower gave me endless hot water at a good pressure.
The second night I was there loud music pumped from the restaurant right into my room which concerned me, but at 9pm it was promptly shut off. The hotel is lovely and quiet at night, they have a well reviewed restaurant and bar and the staff are helpful.
They are located right across the street from the Yahoo! Bus location, 1 block from the Post Office, main market, grocery stores, 2 blocks from immigration and a cheap taxi moto ride from the beach.
In a word – perfect. For what you get, where you get it and what you pay you just can’t beat this place.
By the way the TV’s in Burundi only get 1 channel.
REMINDER: You need mosquito repellent at night in the restaurant/bar as it is open air effectively.
