This hotel is famous because the manager of the hotel in 1994, Paul Rusesabagina, gave shelter to 1000 Tutsis during the Genocide across Rwanda. Built in 1973, it is a world class 4 star hotel renowned for its pool bar and hang-out spot of many ex-pats.

There are 112 rooms and suites in the hotel and conference facilities for any business event. Below I have highlighted some of their key facilities.

Statictics:
Pool side rooms: 50
City side rooms: 54
Suites: 5
Senior Suites: 3
* Every room has a mini bar. Satellite TV, small safe, and laptop cables for internet access. There is wifi in parts of the hotel.

PANAROMA RESTAURANT
On the 4th floor with view over the city. You get a pianist and saxophonist whether you like it or not. French and international cuisine with a smart casual dress code. It is open for breakfast from 06:00 - 10:30 for breakfast and 19:00 - 23:00 for dinner.

POOL BAR
The star of the show. A decidedly casual affair with live music (type varies) on Tues. & Thurs. They have a daily lunch buffet then just snack and of course ? drinks. Open from 10:00 - 24:00.

STAN?S BAR
This 4th floor establishment requires smart casual dress and offers live music. They are only open from 19:00 - 02:00 on Fridays and Saturdays.
