I stayed at Gorillas Nest last February and thought it was fine. I was a little worried since I had read so much about it being cold, but I made sure to close all the windows as soon as we got into our room and it stayed comfortable the entire night (not really sure why ALL the windows were open). I agree with other posters that the food wasn’t great, but frankly I really didn’t care much. My tour operator first wanted to put us into Virunga Lodge, which we did stop by and saw the views…wowee, a great view, but since this trip to Rwanda was mostly about Gorillas, I wanted to be close to the park entrance.

I stayed at the Hotel des Mille Collines in Kigali and I would not recommend staying there…outdated and some of our fellow posters can give you better advice on lodging. Don’t miss the Genocide Memorial.

Appreciate all the feedback on Gorilla's Nest.

It looks like we'll be staying there instead of Virunga to save $$$.
