Welcome to Hotel Chez Lando, your first window to Rwanda. At Chez Lando, we apply the tradition of Rwandan hospitality to the needs of modern travelers; we cater to the smallest detail of your stay. Our quaint garden-style hotel is located just five minutes from Kigali International Airport and is right on the way to the heart of town.
Hotel Chez Lando was built by Lando and Hélène Ndasingwa in the mid-eighties. It was created with a vision to provide a quality environment where people of all social and economic backgrounds could meet to conduct business or simply mingle and have a good time. It was built on a stretch of grassy land along the main road to the only international airport in the country, long before the neighborhood became the bustling Remera commercial center it is today.
The hotel was partially destroyed during the 1994 genocide in Rwanda but the spirit of the founders prevailed, prompting Lando’s siblings to take over, rebuild and expand. Hotel Chez Lando is managed today by Lando’s sister, Anne-Marie Kantengwa. Hotel Chez Lando’s daily and prolonged happy hours in the grill area have become a must for after-work relaxation for anyone living in, or visiting Rwanda.
