“Good value; great service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 October 2011

Chez Jules is a modest, but welcoming home away from home, shared by both Rwandans and expats. Its highlights are a reasonable price, an English-speaking guard and a friendly neighbourhood, where within a 5 min. walk you can find fresh vegetables, bread and other basic groceries. Shoemakers will rebuild your shoes for under $3.00! All five rooms are a fair size and have good closet space. The one double room is very spacious and has a lovely view. There are 2 1/2 baths, a living room with WiFi and TV and a dining room for possible shared meals. A lovely porch/balcony at the back with great view of the hills. Another plus is the manager who is always available and open to suggestions.
The only drawback may be the distance from the main road (about a ten min. walk). However, cabs and taxi-motos will take you to your door on the dirt road. Rain may play havoc with the roads and make for a bumpy ride...

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a new bed. Rooms at the back are quieter, except when the church two doors down...

Hi everyone, I have rooms for rent in a lovely, well-maintained five-bedroom, three-bathroom house in Kimihurura. There is a large communal living room, a dining area that seats six, a large front terrace and gardens on-site. The wireless internet has been installed. Kimihurura is a great neighbourhood for entertainment and exploration. There are many restaurants nearby, including Papyrus (Italian), Flamingo (Chinese), Africa Bite (Rwandan), Lalibela (Ethiopian), Car Wash bar and restaurant (good nyama choma) and Sundowner restaurant and bar. New Cadilac night club and Mama Africa restaurant are just down the hill, about 10 minutes from the house. Mamba club house, a seven-minute walk from the house, has a swimming pool available (5,000 FRW per month). We have lunch and dinner prepared by our cook (weekdays only), laundry service and housekeeping (weekdays), 24-hour security, 24-hour hot water and electricity. Breakfast is self-catered. Please note, our cook and cleaner work Monday to Friday and are off on national holidays, but the guards work throughout the week. Hi, I charge 15$ per night self catering for separate room, Monthly is 450$ and 20$ for internet per month. For additional information check in advert. thanks. NB: This offer is for long staying all utilities, guard and cleaning services covered. We charge 20$ for short stay. All of the above amenities are included, but self-catering options are available (with full access to kitchen amenities). I also have a car available for hire, with a driver available on request. Please note, petrol is not included in the rental fee. The self-drive day rate is 40,000 FRW in Kigali and 40,000 FRW up-country, but prices are negotiable for rentals of longer than seven days. 70,000FRW with fuel per day.
