Hotel des Mille Collines by Kempinski is one of the most luxurious hotels in Kigali Rwanda. Located along 2KN 6th Ave, Kigali, this 5 star luxury hotel features 112 hotel rooms which are decorated to blend into their earthy surroundings. Hotel des Mille Collines is set in Rwanda’s capital city: Kigali. It is a four-star international hotel set in large gardens in downtown Kigali. The hotel gained much of its notoriety from its role within the feature film, Hotel Rwanda. As within the film, the hotel attracts a distinctly business clientele, however its base in the city centre means it is a good base from which tourists can explore.
Enjoy a selection of rooms for guests looking to stay. Each of the Mille Collines’ rooms have private bathrooms, satellite televisions, PC hook-ups and with most of the standard hotel amenities. The rooms are spacious while not being luxurious, they offer a great base to explore the city or for a comfortable overnight stop.
The Hotel provides its leisure and business guests with most convenient services and facilities to ensure a most comfortable stay in Rwanda. It has a large swimming pool and a fitness suite, but these added luxuries will only be a minor distraction from the markets and interesting sights of the city. There is also a restaurant offering French and international cuisine and two bars offering local products as well as international drinks in the cocktail lounge.
Kigali, the capital of Rwanda, is a tranquil, cosmopolitan city offering visitors and travelers a wide range of cultural diversions and entertainment. With Kigali being in the centre of Rwanda, with most main roads leading to and from it, it is quite likely that an extended visit to the country could see you spend a night there. If a one night stop-over is necessary, then a visit to Kigali’s new and insightful Genocide Museum is highly recommended. Not only does it detail the history of Rwanda’s genocide, but also documents the history of genocide around the world, creating a very moving experience. Most visitors who go for gorilla safaris in Rwanda always start their trips with a city tour to the Kigali Genocide Memorial site so that they can get a brief history of Rwanda.
The unique attributes which make The Hotel des Mille Collines one of very best hotels is largely due to its endless views combined top notch food and service ensuring your holiday is a memorable one.
