Bougain Villa
Ranked #4 of 27 Lubumbashi B&B and Inns
Reviewed September 25, 2012

Bougainvilla is really a breath of fresh air in Lubumbashi. No Beggers, No Police, No Prostitutes knocking on your door at 12 at night as would happen at the bigger hotels.
Very basic but good service, good food and great people.
If you are English speaking, this is the guesthouse for you. Very helpful.

Room Tip: All Rooms open up to gardens which makes it very unique and lovely

Home from home in Lubumbashi great food great staff great hosts. Cannot fault Bougain Villa I am a long way from home (UK) but always feel at home here they cannot do enough for me. BBQ Nights are great, the meat has to be the best here by far. The lovely family that run the place are from South Africa but it has a truly international feel to it no matter where you are from. There is always a good atmosphere at the bar and someone interesting to chat to. Long term or short term accommodation it is the best, I would highly reccommend BV.

Room Tip: The best room is the big suite you cant have it cause I am in it!!!!!

This is a guesthouse tucked into one of the nicer quieter neighborhoods in Lubumbashi. No security issues, they employ a night guard/gatekeeper. Very nice grounds, rooms are a good size, beds are fine. Air conditioned. Satellite TV is available in the room. A full breakfast is served with the room in their restaurant- not the cheap continental fare but a real breakfast. Staff is very cordial, speaks English, French, and Swahilli. I needed a shirt and trousers pressed and they jumped at the chance to help me. Appears to be family owned and had a pleasant conversation with them one morning. Restaurant has a bar but I did not frequent it so can't give an opinion. One caveat is the restaurant closes after breakfast on Sunday, so no evening meal is available on site. All around a very nice place to stay.

Room Tip: All rooms are well situated. On one side of the complex, together in a row. no noise issues.
