Discover Rwanda Youth Hostel
The most popular choice in this range, Okapi has a reasonable location just below the city centre. The area looks a bit rough-and-ready with the unsurfaced road, but security is fine.
Chez Rose Guesthouse
The Remera suburb of town is popular with expats, thanks to its proximity to the airport, and Chez Rose is a friendly little guesthouse up here. The large rooms are well lit and include attached bathrooms with hot water.
New Modern Guesthouse
New Modern Guesthouse is down a small alley off Ave du Commerce, and directly opposite the Bellevie Logement. The place is big-time basic and the shared facilities aren't ideal. It is central, but if you can upgrade to somewhere else, do.
Motel Le Garni Du Centre
Kigali's answer to the boutique guesthouse, this atmospheric little auberge is tucked away on a side road below Hôtel des Milles Collines. The well-equipped rooms come with TV, fridge and telephone, and there's a buffet breakfast.
Possibly the longest running budget digs in town, Hôtel Gloria's location is great, as it is right in the heart of the city.
A slick little hotel in the upmarket Kiyovu area of the city, this place is winning over a lot of customers thanks to its spacious rooms with a touch of decorative flair.
Perched on the edge of the valley on the road to Nyamirambo, this is another place with first-class views.
Hôtel Chez Lando
A Kigali institution out in the suburb of Remera, the rooms here are in single-storey units set around a lush garden. It's a pretty good deal, although it's a long way out of town for those without transport.
On a bang-for-your-buck basis, this is probably the best value in town, but the big drawback is that it is quite a long way from the action, tucked away behind the mosque on the road to Nyamirambo.
Down a small alley off Ave du Commerce is Bellevie Logement. It's central location is a plus, but the place is very basic and the shared facilities aren't ideal.
Another excellent establishment, this place offers prime views across the valley to Kacyiru. A modern business hotel, the clean rooms here include satellite TV, telephone and hot-water showers.
One Love Club
One Love Club 'Let's get together and feel alright, altogether now'…if it's the spirit of peace and harmony you are after, then this little retreat is the place for you.
The most central of the midrange hotels, this place offers functional rooms with TV and bathroom, and rates include breakfast. It's a good option for those who don't fancy walking up and down the endless hills near the centre.
Auberge La Caverne
Clearly a cut above the competition at the cheaper end of the scale, this little auberge is tucked away beneath the main road. The cheapest rooms are pretty small, but the more francs you spend the more they begin to expand.
Kigali's first and currently only five-star hotel, the Intercontinental is certainly the smartest address in town. Formerly the Diplomates, it is just a short walk from the city centre.
Hôtel Novotel Kigali
The Novotel was long considered the best in town, but that title has now gone to the Intercontinental. A long way out in the suburb of Kacyiru, this is another place for those with transport.
Housed in the Église Presbytérienne au Rwanda, the rooms here aren't fantastic value when compared with facilities at the leading hotels in this range.
Hôtel Des Milles Collines
Welcome to the Hotel Rwanda. With the international success of the movie, this hotel looks set to see a surge in bookings.
