“Located in Buvungira Cell of Bushekeri Sector of Nyamasheke district of the Western Province of Rwanda, Nyungwe Top View Hill Hotel is owned by a Rwandese entrepreneur and conservationist.In operation since February 2011, the hotel is composed of two distinct compartments. The main area consists of a large, two-tiered rondavel (see photo below) with a phenomenally high roof. Although a rondavel is usually a traditionally built round house, this building offers a rather more modern take on the theme. The ground floor, where you find the reception, is furnished with a few modern angular sofas and walls adorned with traditional Rwandan murals.Circular wicker lights hang from the ceiling and dark tiled stairs lead you up to a mezzanine balcony. Whereas the basement cubicle hosts administration offices, the reception, kitchen, store and the laundry, it is the second level that hosts dining area and the bar both with tables and chairs set on a rather out-of-place black-tiled floor and a sweeping veranda with all-weather tables and chairs of steel and moulded materials. The views from here are stunning and on clear days you can even see Lake Kivu and the volcanoes of far North Rwanda and the Eastern of Democratic Republic of Congo. The bar on this level is entirely decorated from bottle tops, giving it a bright but simple look.” – Nyungwe Top View Hotel

    Eric M in the restaurant and Ange at the reception were great, always welcoming, friendly, and professional. The hotel is a strong 3+ to 4 star hotel. The food is good, the service staff overall are ugreat. Our room was clean and spacious. Their opportunity is in the details, there is no wifi in the rooms. There is only wifi in the reception area/restaurant.

    I was sorry to leave the place after only one night, because it's clear the staff here have their guests' needs very well defined. There is alot of fanfare when you first walk in: a hot towel for your hands and a cup of delicious tea while you check in. You place all your meals in advance, which is nice if you're doing chimpanzee trekking like us and leaving at 5am the next morning. The staff here was friendly; Eric made room for us on the balcony and chatted with us about his home in Gisenyi. I loved the rooms, too—each one is an individual structure with a small sitting area, a bedroom, a bathroom, and a balcony with the most gorgeous view of Nyungwe National Park and the surrounding hills. There was also a hot water bottle in our beds after dinner, which was such a cozy and thoughtful touch. Only con was the bed itself; our room had ancient springs that dug into you when you lay down and was rather uncomfortable. Overall a good experience and one I'd recommend to travellers in the area.

    The food and the service are excellent. The rooms are a bit outdated however. The location offers a nice view over the national park

    The rooms in this hotel are spacious and comfortable. The staff go way out of their way to see your every need. Nothing is too much. From lighting your fire in the evening to cleaning your shoes after a day of muddy trekking. The food could be improved on. Hoping the manager is addressing this.
