The Inn at Heaven is very conveniently located near town and on the property of the nice Heaven restaurant. The staff were friendly and helpful throughout including helping with luggage, letting us leave our bags for the afternoon and have a drink in the not-yet-open restaurant. Because the room faced the restaurant car park it was a bit noisy at night and there was a lot of light coming into the room from streetlights. However the staff were again very kind in unscrewing the exterior light bulbs and lowering the exterior window blinds to block this out. The room is a bit expensive for what it is, but there are not many mid-range options in Kigali.
We had a delightful two weeks at Heaven and would return in a second. The room was comfortable, breakfast was delicious and the food, fellow-travelers and ambiance of the Heaven restaurant was perfect. Alyssa and her staff were thoroughly hospitable.
Perfect spot in the centre of Kigali. Rooms are big and clean, staff is great and helpful and the complementary breakfast is delicious!
For someone who wants to get away from the typical high-rise western style hotels but value quality of ambiance and service.... Heaven is the perfect choice. It is filled with Rwandan charm and authentic decor. The rooms are spacious, include a refrigerator and a spacious bathroom. It has a five star restaurant with a beautiful setting and they took our orders for breakfast and delivered them to our room as a service included in the price of the room, a great value. They deliver on a personal experience and make sure you are satisfied. The people who work there are gracious, friendly and professional. It is in a nice and quiet neighborhood. There are some other good restaurant options within easy walking distance but, it is hard to pass up eating at Heaven. Don't miss their gift store tucked in the corner. It has local hand made items from a cooperative that helps villages around Kigali make a living on their crafts. This is where I will stay when I return to Rwanda....every time.
The staff at Heaven made me feel like family... everyone from the security guards to the waiters/waitresses are extremely friendly! The setting is tranquil (despite being close to the center of Kigali) and beautiful (even in the rooms, which feature art from Kigali's best gallery). The food - since you are co-located in a fabulous restaurant - is some of the best you'll get in the city... don't even think of eating dinner anyone else until you've eaten at Heaven at least once. Breakfast (included) features fresh fruit salad, banana or nutmeg bread, and eggs if you want them (I didn't). The whole experience is superb and I'll definitely be back. Murakoze cyane!
Warm welcome. Very friendly staff. Nice gallery and restaurant with attentive chef. The room was simple but nice and clean. We enjoyed the comfortable bed.
