Hotel Barthos, Butare

In Butare we stayed in a nice hotel called Hotel Barthos. The hotel is set near the University campus. The Sotra-bus for Kigali / Nyungwe stops even at the hotel. The outside from the hotel could have been designed by Gaudi (Art Deco). The rooms are big but quite simple (all have hot shower and TV). Many items from the furniture are hand woodcrafts. There is very friendly staff . We paid 20.000 Rfr for a double room and think it is a very good value / price. We liked it very much.

      Good choice, I stayed there few days ago. I just would like to let you know that the mobile phone number (078 8460877) is listed by mistake at page 133 of the 4th ed. under Motel aux Beaux Arts.

    Joost just emailed me some additional info:

    Go to for online reservation (quite rare in Rwanda).
    When you ask for a room it is better to have a room at the back because the front side is near the busy road.
    Prices vary from 15.000 – 25.000 Rfr. (incl. breakfast)
