“Friendly staff, nice, central location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2010

After traveling in the DRC, it's someting of a shock to come to Lubumbashi, a clean, quiet, friendly town, and encounter this clean and attractive art deco hotel. The staff is quite friendly (the Indian owners can be a bit rough though), the rooms are very clean, the the place is in a good, central location. The only complaints I would have are that the internet connectivity is very bad. It's only possible to get a wi-fi signal in spots, and even with that, the connection speed is very, very slow. Also, if you get a street-facing room, it can be quite noisy. As the other reviewer mentioned, this hotel only takes cash. Also, do not leave any clothing out of your suitcase or the closet, or they will think it's dirty laundry.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2009

Liked the attentive, cooperative staff, central location. But don't count on the wake-up call actually happening or happening at the requested time.

Expensive accommodation, but that's true for business travelers in this region. Expensive laundry service, expensive restaurant for what you get. Bring cash, as the hotel does not take credit cards.
