Faden House is well located the 'Embassy Row' of Gombe in Kinshasa. The rooms are OK and leave a lot that could be improved in terms of light switches, plugs, furniture etc. Service is mediocre, but that is due to a complete lack of training of the staff who are friendly enough.

I was supposed to stay at Faden House for 6 nights, but left after only 1 night. The hotel had acceptable common areas: the breakfast area, the lounge and the pool areas were nice. These were the reasons why I thought it would be a comfortable stay. But after getting to the room which was in the building adjacent to...

We held a three day meeting. The room was appropriate and well air conditioned. The overhead projector worked well after some fiddling by the technicians. The cables on the floor were a challenge and kept us in good shape avoiding tripping! The audio system worked well. We had coffee beaks and lunches every day and a cocktail the last day....

Clearly some of the people giving this place "great" reviews are more used to youth hostels than hotels. Let's face it, Kinshasa is not a hotel lover's Mecca, and really the only place worth staying is Le Voyageur (although perhaps the new Fleuve is worth a look). Faden House has some pluses; it's located near the diplomatic quarter convenient for...

Do not leave any valuables (esp. cash) in the room. Even if you lock things into your suitcase, once you return from breakfast you will find the lock appearantly untouched but all money gone. The place is reknown for theft. If you take all precausions its a good place...but be vigilant as everywhere in Kinshasa.

Great hotel with staff that will go out of their way to help you. Held a 5 day conference with 150 people attending. The hotel fixed lunches and afternoon coffee for all of us and it was great. If we had any requests the staff was very helpful and the management also did their very best to assist. Would also...

Apart from still reeling about general prices in Kinshasa (how do people get by here?!) the guest house is very "nice". ive never been to DRC before so i have nothing to compare it to. i usually stay in 4 or 5 star hotels at varying prices throughout the world but for $150 per night i find this on the...

I have stayed at this guesthouse many times over the past year. It is a welcome contrast to the awful Grand Hotel, across the street. Great location in Gombe, a block away from the River Congo (great walking/jogging route) and many of the European embassies. About the same price as the Grand Hotel, but here the price includes free wifi...
