“worst hotel in congo brazzaville”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2008

check in was very slow, they had no atm machines or bureau de change close by to change our pounds to cfa. The staff was over friendly and sometimes too impatient when we gave tips. They seem to expect more than we gave.

My husband made the mistake of giving out our email address to one of the waiters. When we got back to London, our email was almost closed due to the many requests from money, gifts, even visas from the waiters. Apparently he had given out our email address to almost all the other waiters at the hotel, we also had a similar experience in another country in Africa though the one in brazzaville was worse.

The food was horrible and i mean extremely horrible. The sheets were stained and the carpets in the room had a dump-like smell. Will we ever stay at this hotel again? NO NO NO. please do not be fooled but there's nothing much to see in brazzaville. The town is very small and dirty. And if you do not speak french then you can barely get by. we also stayed in pointe noire(another city). I preferred that to brazzaville. I enjoyed taking walks by the beach side and relaxing after work. Brazzaville is the worst thing that ever happened to Africa. If you happen to be visiting Congo, DO MAKE SURE YOU STAY IN POINTE NOIRE.

It's not all that but its definitely better than brazzaville. Brazzaville is dirty, loud and annoying but pointe noire is more peaceful.
