Where to stay in Kigali

Kigali boasts a wide array of lodging options spread out across its hilly neighborhoods, but truly budget-friendly options remain scarce. Except for youth hostels, most of the accommodations in Kigali consist of modern, simple hotels in the mid-market range that cater to a variety of crowds, from diplomats and aid workers, to tourists and businesspeople. Only a few larger hotels offer 4- and 5-star services in Kigali.
