Inspired by Rwanda’s unforgettable geographical terrain, the hotel gets its name from its motherland known as the “land of a thousand hills.”
Established in 1973 as the premier grand hotel of the country (Rwanda) and becoming a shelter to a light of hope in the darkness for a terrified crowd of up to 2,000 people who were saved by the hotel opening its doors in 1994 during the Genocide against the Tutsi; currently the hotel is definitely the most famous in Rwanda.
Nestled in the central business district, the hotel allows guests to enjoy the breathtaking views over the hills of Kigali while indulging in culinary delights from casual to fine dining, international cuisine to local signature dishes! The hotel has also for long been known to promote local artists as well as the Rwandan culture and produce.
This is evident through the display of local art around the hotel which not only beautifies it but generates income for the local artists as the art pieces are sold; A ‘Cultural Night’ is held every Friday, dedicated to give its guests a taste of the Rwandan culture through live performances of song and dance and the hotel uses 90% of local produce!
Guests indulge in culinary experiences that vary from European fine cuisine with the best panoramic view of Kigali at Le Panorama to local delicacies at the Pool Bar.
