The last 12 years I always stayed in small hotels in the city Center. As many are closed or rundown due to the crisis I had to look for an other hotel. Colleagues proposed me this hotel and I can understand why. Very nice hotel in a quiet environment near the American Embassy with excellent service.

My stay at Dolce Vita Resort was very enjoyable. All staff from security, reception to the kitchen were very friendly and polite. I spoke little Swahili and French but they did all they can communicate in English and made sure I got what I needed. They were very quick to respond to customer concerns. And top of all the food...

Feels like home away from home. Small, quiet, convenient, an incredibly responsive, friendly and attentive staff. All amenities worked great, from hot water to wi-fi to electrical. I love the mosquito netting and screened windows, allowing one to leave windows open at night to wake up to birds chirping in the morning. I already miss the delicious fruit and croissants...

We spent 2 weeks in Bujumbura, and we couldn't have been happier. Dolce Vita is quiet, comfortable, clean, and secure, with great service all around. Plus, their chef is a real professional who takes his art seriously. You can never really explain how important good food is--you just know it is, especially when traveling a lot. The hotel is also...

Amazing and over expectations, this the minimum to describe my stay there. I did my reservation through Booking, great price for valuable service, smiley and welcoming staff, striving to offer the best services, even they propose services that you never expect to find in this small hotel. Electricity, internet, hot water, cleanness of the rooms and premises are notable. Food...

The staff are extremely friendly and welcoming. I was in Bujumbura for work and was very happy with my experience at Dolce Vita Hotel. The breakfast omelettes are great, the coffee is good, and the roof deck bar/restaurant is a nice place to relax at the end of the days. The airport pickup shuttle is also a plus. For anyone...

I have stayed at Hotel Dolce Vita Resort twice during 2015-16. In short, it's a good choice for any traveler - and a great choice for those on a budget. The staff are unfailingly friendly and accommodating. And they provide those little things that make you feel welcome: like a free airport shuttle or an amuse bouche at dinner. Some...
