Kigali Serena

Kigali’s best option in terms of larger urban style hotels, ever reliable and a popular start point for many

In an attempt to break free from the ubiquitous uniformity that often defines large urban hotels, the Kigali Serena has invested in displaying elements of local art in its communal spaces. This nod to the culture adds a layer of interest for the observant guest. The hotel’s culinary options offer a decent variety, with menus designed to showcase both African and international flavors. This gastronomic versatility is complemented by a generously sized swimming pool, framed by the hotel’s own architecture, offering an additional avenue for relaxation and leisure.

When it comes to location, the hotel capitalizes on its downtown Kigali positioning. This strategic locale makes it highly convenient for guests interested in partaking in the city’s various attractions, be it business districts, shopping, or cultural sites. However, it’s important to note that this centralized urban setting may not align with the preferences of those whose primary interest is to engage in wilderness experiences or seek out secluded retreats, typically found in less urbanized regions of Africa.

Guest Rooms

The hotel provides 148 well-appointed rooms, offering a range of accommodations from standard rooms to more expansive suites. Each room is equipped with standard luxury amenities like 24-hour room service, air conditioning, and Wi-Fi. While the rooms lack the unique character often found in boutique establishments, they offer a universally high standard of comfort.

Given the convenient location, there are of course a variety of activity options, from city tours that capture the essence of Kigali’s urban life to more emotionally impactful visits to the Kigali Memorial. Additionally, art tours are available for those interested in the local art scene.

Conservation and Sustainability

While not a leader in environmental conservation, the Kigali Serena plays an important role as an employer in the Rwandan hospitality sector. It provides essential experience and career development opportunities for local residents.
