8/10 Very good

Lovely little place with a very home-like feel. Great location right by the library and walking distance to the genocide memorial. The address on Expedia is wrong for this hotel.

8/10 Very good

Colorful, congenial and comfortable
The proprietor, coworkers and orphans are close-knit. One feels the love and bond they share. The proprietor and his colleagues have adorned the house with beautiful paintings, creative artwork and furniture. "Quaint" doesn't quite cover it. It is beautiful in its simplicity
