Fido’s Guesthouse, Musanze

I just returned from taking seven students to Rwanda for university business. We stayed at Fido’s Guesthouse, in Musanze, for most of our trip. This is my third time to Rwanda and second time at Fido’s. I like staying there because you meet many Rwandans (as it is a local hangout too) and Fidele Muhire, the owner, and his wife, Fidela, are wonderful people. The guesthouse sits about 1.5 miles from Musanze center and is a nice walk into town. The guesthouse serves dinner, but is also very close to the popular Muhabura hotel and restaurant and the Volcana Lounge. The dinner at Fido’s has always been very good and my students were very happy. They also have a small bar for drinks and bottled water.

They are simple accommodations, but always clean and at about $20USD, you can’t beat it. The breakfast is always wonderful and includes fresh fruit, eggs, soups, potatoes, bread, and more. The breakfast was always ready at the time we requested. Fidele is working to get the wireless issues resolved and I hope this will be complete when I return. You can also have your laundry done while there. Fidele is also a guide and can help with any traveler needs – transportation, gorilla tracking permits, etc. I trust him completely and he made sure everything with my trip ran smoothly.

If you wish for a more immersion experience with your guesthouse, check out Fidele’s website at:

    We (son and I) stayed at Fido’s in late September 2016.. It was really good (especially for a budget place in Musanze), relaxed, friendly, wifi, showers and electricity. Fidele was a very kind and helpful host, and we had a very enjoyable evening having dinner and talking with him. All the people working there (Diane, Jado, Emmanuel and so on) were helpful. Breakfasts were ready when we wished, and for the two days we went trekking- first to Bisoke then gorilla trekking) breakfast (plus a packed lunch) was ready by 6 and the jeep, driver and guide were all ready to go before 6,30. Much to be recommended!!!
