Hotel Chez Lando

Kigali, Rwanda

Hotel Chez Lando was built by Lando and Hélène Ndasingwa in the mid-eighties. It was created with a vision to provide a quality environment where people of all social and economic backgrounds could meet to conduct business or simply mingle and have a good time. It was built on a stretch of grassy land along the main road to the only international airport in the country, long before the neighborhood became the bustling Remera commercial center it is today.

The hotel was partially destroyed during the 1994 genocide in Rwanda but the spirit of the founders prevailed, prompting Lando's siblings to take over, rebuild and expand. Hotel Chez Lando is managed today by Lando's sister, Anne-Marie Kantengwa. Hotel Chez Lando's daily and prolonged happy hours in the grill area have become a must for after-work relaxation for anyone living in, or visiting Rwanda.

The Hotel has 82 quaint rooms and bungalows. These can be especially nice for travelers and consultants looking for a quite place to work from. Every room has a private patio and beautiful views of the expansive gardens. The rooms have TV with satellite channels, en-suite bathroom with shower and bath, and refrigerator. There are two restaurants to choose from, a popular local dance club, a children's playground and business center with internet connection and printing.

Enjoy the serenity and privacy of your quarters, tucked away in a remote area of the Chez Lando gardens, or step into the social life of our popular dining and dance areas. Between 6:00am and midnight, the Hotel offers free shuttles to and from the airport for hotel guests.
