6/10 Good

Window was opened when I checked in, allowing a lizard to enter the room. The shower malfunctioned. Great variety of breakfast items and food was delicious

6/10 Good

The Nest Kimi is a good place if you are a backpacker or other independent traveler looking for a place in central Kigali. Kimihurura is a lovely neighborhood - mostly residential with some fun and nice restaurants and smaller shops close by. The Nest is much more of a guest house than a business hotel so I wound up doing more of my work stuff off site. Definitely felt safe.

10/10 Exceptional

Very good place to stay before and after arriving at the airport. The front desk staff, Keith and Liliana, were more than helpful. The breakfast is good and plentiful. Rooms and public areas were kept clean. No internet issues. Easy to walk to restaurants and as a single woman, I felt quite safe.
