Booked in with a promise for a great experience. Disappointing is an understatement. No water in the rooms!!! The breakfast was awfully poor and staff not friendly at all. The TV doesn't work and the rooms were extremely cold. Had to change hotels the next day

I stayed at the Hotel Muhabura from 25th Jan to 30th Jan. 2017. I did Gorilla tracking whilst there and also visited Lakes Burera & Lake Ruhondo. Ruhengeri or Musanza as it is now called is a relexing and interesting city. The room in Hotel Muhabura was well furnished. Breakfast is good with lots of fresh fruit. The staff were...

This is the best place to take your packed lunch while starting your gorilla trekking. I think it is the best in Ruhengeri to offer such service for standard and bugdet traveller. You will not be dissapointed

I always stop here when I pass through Town. And I always order meat samosa - simply the best I have found anywhere in Rwanda. Served freshly made, piping hot at any time of the day, very tasty, not greasy, with a lemon wedge and chilly oil. Perfect and not to be missed if in town. The place has a...

The Hotel Muhabura is historic and as such has a special place in the town. Service at the hotel is good, the restaurant is a little slower. Breakfast is included but is very basic - boiled eggs, toast, fruits, juice, coffee. It's sufficient and for the price it's a good value but it is not a luxury hotel so just...

The Hotel and restaurant Muhabura in Musanze can almost make you feel like being back in a town a few decades ago. The restaurat has a great atmosphere, and I would definitely recommend it for a drink. Coming here for lunch or dinner can turn into an unpleasant experience as the waiting time can be very very long. I would...

As so many times before in the past years we stopped at Hotel Muhabura for lunch. The friendly atmosphere and the history of the hotel & restaurant had made us to become the “usual happy returning customers”. At the moment we stepped out of the car the we were met by an employee requesting us for 20 000 RWF/per (approx...

Hotel Muhabura has a broad menu but the food is average. The best bet is to stick to the brochettes (fish, beef and goat) and the samosas are surprisingly good. The waiters are friendly and courteous but the kitchen is quite slow - expect to wait around an hour for main courses. Despite this, Muhabura is one of the better...

Our tour company booked us into this hotel and it was disappointing to be honest. This hotel relies on its history of being the accommodation used by Dian Fossey. This alone is not enough, the hotel is lacking in several areas. Firstly, the rooms are far from luxurious. The bed was creaky and felt old, the showers were warm at...
