Slumber in the Jungle

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 1, 2009

Rooms and bathrooms have seen better days (1970's). There's wifi internet access!! Alas not fast. Nice view of the Congo River. It's one of the better hotels in Kinshasa, albeit overpriced. The entire complex is being renovated and modernised, so the swimming pool area was closed. Very peaceful area of Kinshasa.

Unique Quality: Its claim to fame is that this is where the protagonists of the "Rumble in the Jungle" stayed. George Foreman and Muhammed Ali once walked around the lobby of the Grand Hotel in preparation for the greatest boxing match in history.

The location of the hotel is quite pleasant. Close to the Congo River and within the leafy embassy district of Gombe, you would be able to see the mighty body of water from the higher floors of the building. Undergoing much-needed renovation, the Grand, which used to be the Intercontinental Hotel during Mobuto's era, is trying to reclaim its glory days, now that new 5-star hotels are finally being constructed around Kinshasa.

Directions: Gombe District
