The Kigali Umubano Hotel is a 98 room hotel set on the very peak of one of Kigali's many hills. A commanding view over the Kigali rooftops gives the visitor a real feel for this colourful capital city and is a good introduction to Africa if this is your first port of call on arrival. Surrounded by a lush green garden the hotel is positioned near to the ambassadorial and commercial centre of the bustling city. Business travellers will rejoice at wifi internet access throughout the hotel as well as a choice of four meeting rooms and the main business centre.
Just seven kilometres from Kigali International Airport it's easy to get here and easy to leave, so the hotels main business is with tourists staying only one night on their way out to go gorilla and chimpanzee tracking, so your safari kit won't even get a second glance, it will fit right in. Although out on the street it's a different story, let's face it, pith helmets are so last century!
The Novotel Kigali Umubano has a fine restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. The bar and lounge area are also a haven from the outside heat and a place to meet friends and relax between trips out into Kigali. Don't forget to visit the Kigali Genocide Memorial Centre, a harrowing experience but one should hide not from the truth!
