Lonely Planet review
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. It offers smart rooms with TV, hot-water bathtub and a balcony at reasonable rates. There are also some cheaper rooms in an extension below the main building with just a hot shower. All rates include a buffet breakfast.
There is an excellent restaurant here with a healthy selection of dishes from around the world, plus a reliable internet café.
Our independent authors have visited Okapi Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Kigali.
