This hotel is well-situated for those in need of accessing international development organisations and embassies in Kin. I found the sizeable rooms comfortable and clean. The staff were helpful - and even when there was some misunderstanding about the booking, it was swiftly and professionally resolved. The off-the-menu Indian food is also really, really good! :) My only wish was...

Spent 7 nights in Kinshasa last April. Will say that the hotel is well situated, relatively clean especially in the first floor. The staff is very polite and couteous particularly papa JP in Room Service. The finish on the other end is not terrible: Pieces of crown molding joined together, uneven and unaligned ceramic tiles in the shower and not...

Dear Valued Guest; I thank you for posting your review. I am happy that our staff has treated you well.

This is my 4th day in this hotel and I only have positive things to report. The room is spacious (bigger than in 4 stars hotels in Europe). The cleanliness is impeccable (the floor is in mosaic), the bed is comfortable and the decoration is simple, in modern style. In addition, the restaurant is really good, and the French chef...

Stayed 4 nights at this hotel. The hotel was very clean, room was large and offered a balcony facing the inner court yard. Most usual facilities are available. The location is conveniently in the down town area about 1 hr from ndjili airport depending on traffic. The restaurant offers nice food at fair prices for dinner and lunch and you...

Dear Guest, We thank you for your tripadvisor review, and glad to know you were satisfied with our hotel in general. Our products mostly are imported from Europe by air to preserve quality and freshness hence justifying our price but are below average comparing to other properties in the same standard. And we are in the process of even giving...

The Royal hotel is a hidden gem within Kinshasa from the busy street life outside the hotel Highly recommend for visitors with duties within the city Loved the food and service. Fair internet speed Was not allowed to take outside picture it would have been more marketing😋

Rooms are large, confortable, clean and functional. Staff is professional and helpful. Excellent breakfast and dining, but expensive. Internet works well, but ask for two codes if you need to be connected simultaneously with your laptop and smartphone. Location is central, but still quiet (away from the noisy large avenues). Unfortunately, not much green around or in the hotel.

The room is acceptable, bedding is comfortable, location is central in town. The food is good but quite expensive. The internet drove me crazy. It only stayed signed in if I was actually using it.

The rooms are quite clean, a bit dimly lit and the external views are quite grim but a room with internally facing views is not bad. Bathrooms can show some signs of water damage. The restaurant facing the internal courtyard has exceptional local and international dishes and it is impossible to make a bad choice. Better lasagne that you find...
