8/10 Very good

Good location just across the street from the Embassy of South Africa and the FAO-UN office. And near the lake and a good lakeside Italian restaurant "Pasta Comedia" with draft beer. Hotel rooms were good with AC, TV, mini-fridge, and good WiFi. Easy to walk to other lakefront hotels and restaurants (Paillotes, Zion, etc) and Bujumbura public beach. Also recommended to take a tuk-tuk to "Saga Plage Resort" for a great beachfront location with good food and cold beer.
