Our stay at Heaven was wonderful. The room was clean and comfortable, and the staff was friendly and welcoming. The breakfast was very good and convenient. The location is great - easy to talk to shops and restaurants. We would definitely stay there again.
Heaven has a great location in Kiyovu, walking distance to Milles Collines. The staff is very friendly, and the gatekeeper always had a smile. The restaurant is one of Kigali's top choices, and in the weekends they have a great breakfast/brunch buffet.
Staff were welcoming and friendly and restaurant food is good.
Breakfast was not as organised as lunch and dinner though. Room was ok and a decent size but right next to the car park.
Heaven is a great place to stay and with three rooms you better book your trip early. It's on a quiet street and feels secluded but is in walking distance of the hotel des Mille Collines, cafes and shopping. There are also restaurants in walking distance, including Khana Khazana Indian. Heaven also has its own popular restaurant, with a fabulous view, that serves dinner, breakfast for guests and a wonderful Sunday brunch. There is a small shop full of items by local artisans and an art gallery. The staff is wonderful; they were friendly and helpful. The room was spacious, comfortable and there was a separate sitting room with refrigerator, coffee, tea and large bottles of filtered water. They have laundry service and will arrange transportation to and from the airport. I've traveled to many countries and this was one of my favorite stays.
I stayed at Heaven for over two weeks. The staff was very nice and helpful, and the food at the restaurant is wonderful. Thank you!
Wow! What a wonderful place to stay. Do not look anywhere else and stay here. The rooms are clean, colorful, big, and simply perfect. The entire place has such positive energy, relaxing, peaceful, and happy vibe. People greet you with a genuinely happy welcoming smile! Great location too about 10 min driving from the airport and walking distance to downtown. You must also eat at the restaurant because it was one of the best restaurants I have eaten at- get the 7 course tasting menu paired with drinks and you are in for a real treat! The service is the best I have had in my many travels in Africa. Every time I return to Kigali I will stay and eat here too! Thank you all for everything.
We stayed in the Ijuru room at Heaven on New Year's Eve, the last night of our stay in Rwanda. We absolutely loved our experience there! The room was beautiful and better equipped than any other place we had stayed in Rwanda. Everything worked perfectly, there were many outlets for charging, the Wifi was the most consistent and fastest we had during our vacation, and the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. We also ate at the restaurant for New Year's Eve and the food and atmosphere were both exceptional. It was the best meal we had in Rwanda. There was live music and interesting people watching as well. The staff was helpful to us in the morning, allowing us to hang out and calling us a taxi to the airport. Additionally, we read the Ruxin's book, "A Thousand Hills to Heaven" and recommend that as well. It was neat to know some of the background of the development and ideas behind the establishment before coming to stay there. Highly Recommend!
