Probably the best hotel in Bujumbura. If you are looking for a calm, familial and friendly place, this is for you. Rooms are well cleaned every day and the food is fantastic - especially the steaks and brochettes. Staff is very friendly, helpful and professional. Laundry service is great; clothes are usually back the next day and are well cleaned+ironed....

I just spent one month @La Palmeraie!! Amazing rooms and service. Excellent food and drinks (I loved their Mojitos and wines). The owner (Patrice) and the entire team are just great!!!. For sure if I go back to Buja this is the place I will stay.

I stayed at La Palmeraie while on a short business trip of 4 days. The hotel is situated close to the towns centre and airport, yet, the neighborhood is very quiet. Rooms are nicely decorated and homey. The managers, Patrice and his son Julien went out of their way to make me feel at home and make my short stay...

The staff are very helpful except in the restaurant, where they were the opposite. The breakfast offering is poor and the chefs seem to think every egg dish must be cremated at very high temperatures. The rooms are rustic and quite nice, The Internet is variable. My room had a hole near the roof which let in a stream of...
