This place houses a lot of expats and provides reasonable lodging with spacy rooms, cozy beds and good breakfast with a variety of choices including fresh fruits, omelette station and many more. The minor inconvenience was with low quality internet which had to be activated through the ticket which one had to ask from the receptionist every 24 hours.

- the hotel is extremely clean - the location is great - the rooms are spacious and comfortable - there is a conference hall for conferences and banqueting - the restaurant is very good - various events are organized weekly - the staff is friendly. My colleagues and I enjoyed spending time in the Havana bar & cigar lounge - it is absolutely amazing! The GM, Alim, is very helpful and he made sure that we are taken care of the whole time. I highly recommend Hotel Royal! Thank you, Alim!!

Been here for the second time. Nice rooms. Got an upgrade. Like everywhere in this town expensive. Took breakfast next door ar Kayser boulangerie. Excellent and fresh. The only disavantagw for this hotel is that smoking is allowed also jn the bar😡. Too bad. Clean rooms and if you need a reliable driver ask the reception for Malco !

I loved this hotel. The receptionist Billie was excellent and very friendly. In addition one of the male waiters (Teksom?) was also excellent. Both spoke good English. Remember that not many people speak English in Kinshasa. I stayed for 4 nights and also used the conference facilities. The conference staff were not very helpful but the restaurant staff made up for that. The Indian chef was excellent! He gave very good suggestions for the conference meals. Every day the meals were excellent! The pilipili sauce made at the hotel was the best.The breakfast buffet could vary from day to day. It was the same all days. Weeekends were noisy at night. Overall, this is a great hotel.

I stayed at Hotel Royal for a week visiting DRC for work. The pictures on their website and here on trip advisor must be really old compared to the actual place. I was disappointed with my stay my room was not neat and the corridors also are dirty. The owners really need to ensure that place is scrubbed properly and kept neat, I was disappointed.
