Hôtel Des Mille Collines

Hôtel Des Mille Collines

Inspired by Rwanda’s unforgettable geographical terrain, Hôtel Des Mille Collines derives its name from its motherland known as the “land of a thousand hills.” It was opened in 1973 as the premier grand hotel of the country and become a shelter to 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;

Hôtel des Mille Collines is by far the most famous hotel in Rwanda.

Located in the central business district, Kigali, the hotel allows you 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 local art displayed 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 giving its guests a taste of the Rwandan culture through live performances of song and dance, and the hotel uses 90% of local produce!
