Nice hotel, good service delivery. Nice food, very quite place. Reliable wifi. Loved their salad. Only doors are not closing properly. I will recommend this hotel to those who love quite places where they can work or rest after work.

Stayed here for business for over a week. Staff was attentive, food was great, and enjoyed the pool! Rooms were very clean and good water pressure. Highly recommended for business or pleasure. Security was also good. Very much enjoyed my stay here.

We stayed here for a week and half on work business and were very impressed. The rooms were clean, with mosquito nets and well equipped. It was especially lovely to have a balcony overlooking the Congolese mountains. The grounds and the surrounding area are quiet and there are lots of areas to sit outside for meetings or drinks. The staff...

The hotel is clean and spacious and one of the best by Bujumbura standards. Wifi is reliable and the hotel staff at the reception speak both english and french (which can be a plus to one-language foreigners). Don't expect fast service in the restaurant though, they take their time with the orders there! But the assortment of fresh fruit every...

I stayed here for a workshop and subsequent work in Bujumbura and elsewhere. I was impressed. The hotel has everything you need, and some other nice touches. The rooms are large and spacious, with balconies. The beds are also large, with big mosquito nets positioned in exactly the right place to fit easily over the bed. This is a definite...

Really pleasant hotel. The service is amazing! The place is calm and relaxing. The breakfast is usually a self-service with a large choice of food. As for the dinner, the plates are delicious. However, the hotel is missing some "cachet" as for the decoration. Also, the relaxing music in the yard can be sometimes really annoying (especially at 6:30 am)....

The hotel is clean and beautifully landscaped. The food and coffee are excellent. The cultural performances by energetic young men and women crown a memorable visit. Its neighbourhood is above all quiet.

The Royal Palace hotel is a small hotel with 32 rooms only. The rooms are spacious and clean. All rooms do have a view at the very nice and clean garden and a swimming pool.
