The Memling is a cocoon of quietness in the middle of busy Kinshasa, the pool area is great place to hang out on a Saturday or even go for dinner. Breakfast falls a bit short for a 5* but is ok, internet is pretty good and the room is up to international standards, would stay here again

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 31 August 2016

Stayed for a weekend at the Memling between business legs out in the bush of DRC. While this hotel may appear expensive i thought it was worth it, especially compared to other accommodation I have stayed at in Kinshasa which is way over priced in General. It was nice to be able to chill out and relax in comfort especially...

Rooms and room amenities are OK. Location is close to most of the places I had to visit, though in what seems to be dodgy downtown. Pricey in my view. Staff were friendly and most helpful, accommodating many of my requests. Food was acceptable (a la carte). I concur with one of the reviewers that this is a smoker's hotel...

Kinshasa is quite a dynamic and wide city. The Memling hotel is ideally located in the very center of the town. Easy to meet business partners. I was quite satisfied by the quality of staff. Each person met was smiling, Professional, and ready to help. The amenity is comfortable, except maybe for the bathroom, that needs to be refreshed. Taps...

Clean rooms, handy cell phone shop and ATM in the lobby and helpful staff. Good value for money, if you compare with the rest of the crazy prices in Kinshasa. A good combination of quality and location for a business trip.

Definitely agree with other reviews that hawkers are allowed far too close to the entrance which can make waiting for cars, walking in etc a bit uncomfortable. Staff friendly and courteous, but they could improve on services for non French speakers. Could use a lesson in what is appropriate in terms of how they deal with solo female travellers. Whole...

Hotel is well placed in the business district and security seems good. Rooms are clean, but very uninspiring and old. Staff is friendly without being particularly efficient.
