I really like this place. I was prepared not to; I'd read so-so reviews, but a colleague who knows better strongly encouraged me to stay here. I'm glad for it. Le Voyageur, you should know, is now renamed the Elais. Elais is the Latin name for the genus of the oil palm, fitting because this is the former guest house...

I stayed for 5 days and paid about $215 a night for bed and breakfast. The room was a mini-apartment and nice enough but pretty functional and probably worth it if you are going to eat in for a few nights of your stay. The bathroom was pretty ponging at times and the room internet intermittent. The breakfasts are a...

If you are looking a room with kitchenette, Le Voyageur is the right place. The room is wide and have a living room that includes Kitchenette. Service includes free WiFi, breakfast and use of sporting facilities owned by Elsais which is located within the same compound. It looks like hotel Le voyageur and Elsais have some kind of agreement that...

Shocking really that this institution can run and be used with the 215 USD per night, and hardly correct internet and breakfast. Kinshasa has a long way to go in terms of competetive accommodation alternatives. Lovely swimmingpool and the tennis court within the leafy plush enclave in the otherwise quite rough vicinity of the Boulevard. Apartments quite small and basic,...

I was here for business for several months and would definitely stay here again. There are nicer hotels in town, but if you're in Kinshasa more than a week this is the place to stay. Security was great, I had no issues with security for my room or car.i stayed in a long term room so I had a cooktop,...

In the hustle and buste of Kinshasa is this gem of a hotel. It feels homey (ask for the "apartment" as that includes a living room, dining table, kitchenette, large bedroom) and is secure. Also, it is near a nice grocery store called Regal, which I recommend over the overpriced Peloustore across the street. Le Voyageur has a nice Olympic-sized...

Overall recommended, nice grounds, great pool/tennis courts/basketball courts, secure, and restaurant affiliated with place has EXCELLENT food (breakfast on the other hand is average). Problem is wifi sucks, which is such a simple fix that I'm not sure why they don't put some effort into it. Also, laundry not available on the weekend, which is EXACTLY when people need laundry,...

I spent two nights at the Voyageur in Kinshasa. My room was clean and the place was secure (not a given in this city). The breakfast included in the price of the room was good and sufficient. There is a large pool and tennis courts. There is also a nice pavilioned restaurant/bar in the gardens that is pleasant to frequent....

Le Voyageur has it all: nice rooms with great amenities, many with kitchenettes; a sports complex with olympic pool and 4 tennis courts on the property (instructors, too) and a small gym. 2 restaurants, lots of shops and restaurants in walking distance. A friendly, helpful staff and the best (included) full breakfast in town. The downsides: the gym needs a...

My first time in Kinshasa. Hotel is centrally located and the property is an enclosed compound for long and short stay visitors. Good sized rooms. excellent sports facilities with gym, tennis courts and large swimming pool. Excellent food in both of the restaurants. Above all, the friendliness of the staff adds to the overall positive and enjoyable experience.

“Early sleepers should avoid the rooms to the right as you face the reception because the restaurant next door has live music some nights.”

“choose a high-end room with kitchenette if you can afford it; the smaller rooms are not in great locations and can be quite small.”
