This very basic hotel is a good budget option for Kinshasa. We paid $50 per night for single rooms (double beds) which included breakfast (omelet, bread, coffee). No problems with security and it is centrally located. No hot water, AC did not work well in all rooms, slow wireless with variable connectivity in different parts of the hotel. No bug... More

I stayed here for two weeks in November 2011 - overall, the service was good at the hotel, but I had a number of things stolen from my suitcases. The restaurant was ok, though the service was terrible - it was as if I was being a pain to the waitresses by ordering food! There was good wifi, but there... More

Built like older hotels in Paris but with larger rooms. Decor is similar to older motels in southern Florida. Inside restaurant is good for breakfast/dinner, restaurant in the back is good for dinner. Both have reasonable prices. Water in pool is a shade of green so would not swim in it. Much more secure than most people think. Some international... More

A hotel that survives by lack of competition. Very simple and basic set up. Try your luck with the elevator. Indian management without training/manners. Did at one stage not honor reservation, but leased out to the next available guest. Rooms are clean, food good and cheap. Pool seems to be clean too.

Godd 3 stars in Kinshasa. Rooms can be more comfortable but the restaurant is not dissapointing. If you cannot afford Memling or Pyramide, that is your choice.
