Neat studio that is centrally located, making it easy to get anywhere in Kigali. I walked to most places, but getting a cab or moto taxi would've been no problem. Teri and Patrick were very hospitable and made my stay quite pleasant.

Dream studio! It is stylish, sparklingly clean, and well-located. The bed was so comfortable - we got the rest we needed after 24 hours of travel. So many thoughtful touches. Teri and Patrick are very warm and welcoming.
