Very nice guesthouse and a warm reception. It's a big plus to have the restaurant next door.
We loved Heaven. Great location, friendly helpfull staff and a fantastic restaurant. All my emails/enquiries were promply answered and dealt with.
Heaven is... well just what you would expect from a guesthouse called Heaven. The rooms are spacious; the view is fantastic; the staff members do everything they can to go above and beyond (thank you Caleb, Lawrence, Ganesh, Charles, Immaculee!). The owner, Alyssa, is (such a cliche!) an angel, showing up to provide advice (everything from day-trip advice to where to buy a great quilt) or to give directions, keeping everything running smoothly and making it right when something unexpected occurs. At the restaurant, the food is divine and the waitstaff friendly, helpful, attentive, and oh-so-warm. (I wish there was space here to mention them all by name; they deserve to be named.) I have stayed at Heaven before, and it just gets better and better. Five stars for sure!--I'll definitely be back.
A few friends and I stayed at Heaven before and after our trip to DRC to see the gorillas in Virunga and climb the Nyiragongo volcano. The rooms are nice, the beds are very comfortable, the showers were hot (with great water pressure). Staff was helpful and available.
The restaurant and bar area were a big plus. Beautiful setting and great food and drinks.
Thanks for a great stay!
Great location, clean and well appointed room, decent wifi. And of course being next to the restaurant is a huge plus, including some great breakfast conversations with the other guests. Highly recommended.
Heaven is situated near the nicest hotels in Kigali, in the embassy neighbourhood.
We arrived pretty early and came back home always very late and there was always someone there to great us or open the gate for us.
Heaven has great cocktails and food! (for an adapted price)
The room and bathroom where very nice and quiet (at least after 11pm and before 9am when most of the visitors come in, and the water pump goes on).
I really enjoyed my stay and the hosts
A wonderful boutique hotel located near by central Kigali. The wait staff is especially friendly and very welcoming. They make your entire stay a real pleasure. Special compliments to John the restaurant manager, Steven, Gilbert, and the rest of Heaven's staff. The restaurant menu is of high quality. Make sure to check out the locally inspired cocktail menu. Breakfast choices are equally enjoyable as are the lunch options. Each of the rooms are unique and custom designed with a unique boutique feel to (website hidden)-located Inema art gallery is a definite added plus. Heaven is aptly named. A wonderful place to rest and re-charge in Kigali.
