Very soon I was put at ease,I was welcomed with a big smile,nice huge room,spotless and well AC.The breakfast... More

Looks like a 2-3 star hotel but provides amenities and service closer to a 4-star property. Located centrally, just off the main commercial and Govt central thoroughfare, with access to a couple of decent restaurants as well as supermarkets and pharmacies. Rooms are well appointed and spacious with updated furnishings and good bathroom amenities including disposable razors. The room rates... More

This hotel is nothing impressed me from the reception to the rooms to the restaurant. The service was timely and with courtesy. It was refreshing to meet staff who spoke English with ease. Every minute, they were helpful and wanted to know if we enjoyed our stay. The only thing that I think they need to improve is to eliminate... More

I stayed there and liked the location of the hotel in the centre of the city with direct access from the hotel to most important places in Kinshasa. You can't beat the staff kindness, rooms are large and the breakfast buffet was excellent. I will surely return to this hotel next time I will be visiting Kinshasa.

Of all the hotels I have stayed in for work, I have to say that the staff here were probably the nicest. Always making sure everything was OK, offering to help, out of sincerity and concern. For that alone I would recommend the hotel to anyone. The rooms were large, though dated. The wifi worked, but was slow. The gym... More

We were in Kinshasa for about a week to finally bring our adopted son home, and Leon Hotel was a great place to stay. The staff were extremely friendly and accommodating, the room was clean and well-serviced, and the breakfast had a large number of food choices that were great for U.S. palates and that of our Congolese son.

Chez Leon has ok rooms with ok bathrooms (shower without any wall or curtain which means you will produce big floods in the room when showering). There is a nice desk in the room which is big and convenient for working. Breakfast is a curious sampling of foods, but quite ok. Staff are very friendly and internet works ok (for... More

I am a tour manager in Kinshasa and recommend this hotel to my clients. Leon is up to international standards and centrally located. There is a very nice restaurant just across from the hotel which has a swimming pool if guests prefer to dine or relax there. The price for a single room is 170$ per night with breakfast. wifi...

It's hard to make reservations for a hotel when they don't make prices available or telephone number to contact them😔. I'm coming to Kinshasa in July for 3 wks, I'm looking at this hotel which has decent reviews, but no prices per night listed. I guess I'll keep looking

The rooms are neat, bed is very very good, food is excellent,breakfast is excellent, staff are super although some you need to communicate in Lingala/ French , location of the hotel is very very good.
