The Garden Place Hotel is in a great location to access all the facilitiesin Musanze. Handy for the bus station and taxis, estarants are within walking distance. The accommodation is clean and spacious, the beds are very comfortable. some more thought needs to be given to those small details that make all the difference like bedside lamps, hand towels, the position of the TV etc etc. The staff were friendly and obliging, breakfast was good and we ate in one evening and had a very tasty meal.

The Garden Place Hotel is a wonderfully restful oasis in Musanze. You can feel very safe - in fact, it is immediately adjacent to the National Police Headquarters. The kitchen staff are very obliging and the rooms spacious. It’s a great option, especially when trekking to see the gorillas.

It was my second time staying at the hotel and it’s been great both times. The rooms are very clean with good beds and mosquito nets that actually match the size. Hot water in the showers and better WiFi than I expected. Acoustics are a bit strange so you can hear conversations coming from strange places and closing room doors tend to echo. I’ve slept very well both times, but it does depend a bit on how considerate your neighbors are.

This is the third time I have stayed at Garden Place Hotel and once again I was not disappointed. Despite increasing competition in the town this remains my all-round favourite for location, facilities and value for money - oh and did I mention the friendly and helpful staff, especially Frank on reception. The rooms are really excellent, comfortable bed, large and properly functioning bathroom, good wi-fi, mosquito net, plenty of electric sockets etc. And it is so central to the town which makes it within walking distance of almost everything. My only slight gripe is the breakfast which was a nondescript buffet with no staff available when I turned up (maybe too early). But the second day I walked 100 yards down the road to the excellent Miguna and that was fine.
