Clean, affordable and perfectly located accommodation for exploring and enjoying karongi. The breakfast offers a good selection of fruits, pastries, choice of eggs , fresh fruit juice, beverages and soup. The restaurant offers local as well as international dishes and drinks. And to top it all up the view is priceless regardless of if you take a lake view or hill view. The team is amazing. There are different room categories i went for the basic.

You cannot be the view of home saint jean or the price. Very easy to visit places from here by walking or moto. Food service is slow. Rooms are small, but you don't want to be there except sleeping because the outdoor view is amazing.

The place is calm and quiet, the pictures I have attached is my view from my room no. 67. At St Jeah is all you need to have and. There's a very large of lake kivu. So since the hotel is almost surrounded by lake kivu, are likely to see large attractive lake kivu size size. You won't regret any single moment of your stay at this hotel.

I first stayed here as a university student a few years ago. Upon return to Rwanda for holiday I was so happy to know I could return to this lovely haven on the shores of Lake Kivu. It is simply the best, lovely rooms and staff with views of the Lake from any direction. An easy 15 minute walk or less than 10 minute moto drive from the taxi park in town if you’re coming to Kibuye via bus. The staff are more than happy to plan boating/island/fishing excursions on the lake that depart and return right at the shores of the guest house. Very clean sleeping accommodations. As a student I stayed in the shared hostel space with bunk beds and shared bathrooms. On my second trip I stayed in a private room with adjoining bathroom. Both options include mosquito nets. Very good food at the restaurant with a wide array of options and a full bar. At the end of your stay the staff will gladly call motos to come take you back to the taxi park in town.

We loved our time in this hotel. Amazing view, restaurant always opened and nice waiters (thank you Samson!) and especially nice rooms. Very good quality / price ratio. Only small negative comment, we didnt get so many advices for the visits and activities to do.
