Burundi Hotels, Hostels & Accommodation
Roca Golf Hotel
Hotel Club Du Lac Tanganyika
Top Hill Residence Kiriri
King's Conference Centre
One of the best budget deals, with large, clean rooms, including TV, fridge and hot water.
One of the newer hotels in town, the Amahoro has rapidly established a name for itself as a comfortable, centrally located place to stay with a good range of amenities.
Tucked away on the corner of Rue des Swahilis near the lakeshore, this apartment complex comes highly recommended by locals and expats alike.
Saga Residence Hotel
Under the same ownership as the popular Saga Beach complex on Lake Tanganyika, this is the most atmospheric of the cheaper hotels. The friendly owners extend a warm welcome to all guests and the decoration is a cut above the competition in town.
The only international chain hotel in town, the Novotel has all the four-star facilities you would expect from this sort of place.
Hôtel Safari Gate
A colonial building with character near the shores of Lake Tanganyika, Safari Gate is an option for those with a vehicle. It's not far out of town, but locals say the surrounding area can be unsafe at night.
Hôtel De L'amitié
Once the cheapest place in the city centre, the new US dollar rates make it less alluring than it was. Still, there is a good selection of rooms, all with their own bathroom.
Bujumbura's very own boutique hotel, the Botanika is a charming retreat from the rigours of life in Burundi. There are only seven rooms and all come equipped with satellite TV, minibar and beautiful bathroom.
Hôtel Le Doyen
This rambling old colonial-era building, set amid verdant grounds, has the cheapest rooms in town, as it is one of the few places still charging in local currency rather than US dollars.
Formerly the Nikamor Hotel, this apartment-style place is popular with long-term residents in Bujumbura.
