I have stayed at Villa Monoma a few times in the last year and each time the staff is extremely welcoming, nice and helpful. It really is an oasis in Brazzaville - the courtyard is very relaxing and conducive to getting work done. There is a wonderful bar on the third floor with a great ambiance and comfortable seats -...

This was my second visit to Brazzaville, and first time to stay in this hotel. Stayed for two nights. From the outside of the building, you will be surprised at the small nice forest garden created surrounded by the hotel rooms. The overall impression was OK. I am aware of the hotel prices in Brazzaville are relatively high compared to... More

"Villa Monama me reçois toujours comme si j’étais un enfant de la maison… plutôt… comme si je rentrais comme un soldat victorieux, dans sa forteresse. A l’intérieur un jardin plus vert qu’une réserve naturelle et une petite piscine bleu transparent. Et dans l’air une aire de jazz… Et entre des souvenirs d’une vie, quelques pièces de qualité! La collection de... More

I travel most of the year and because I was supposed to stay quite a while on my own in Congo, I told my company to book me a room in a friendly B&B. I went on tripadvisor and read the reviews about Villa Monama. Most of them were saying that the place was held by a French management, great,... More

I may not be the typical client for this type of hotel. But i am sure, there is a wide customer base looking for a place reflecting the traditional African style. (look at the photos) The hotel is located in area not easily accessible, but about 15 minutes drive from city centre. The decoration is special and corresponds to the... More

I had never been to Brazzaville before; and i was looking for a cosy and clean hotel. This villa attracted by attention because the place seemed very well kept from the website. The few negative points of this villa are that the rooms are very basic and old. The place could be nice to stay but I think it is... More

Not close to town, situated on a muddy alley, the Monama is insanely overpriced. The rooms needed a new coat of paint and reeked of mildew. There did not seem to be any other guests there. The wifi did not work and there were no blankets or bedspreads. Do not let the website fool you.

The Villa Monama in Brazzaville is a rather large building with a nice court yard that contains the pool and seating area of the restaurant. Once you enter, you leave the - rather under developed - outside world at the gate and find everything you need and expect to have an enjoyable stay. The staff at the bar is very... More

I have stayed there for months and felt like if I was at home. The hotel provides only 15 rooms in a charming and romantic tropical garden. Service is all inclusive : 24h internet access w/ cable, laundry, breakfast and 1 hour international phone call per day. You can get extra discount if you pay in advance and for long-term... More
