Hilton opens its first hotel in Congo

Hilton has partnered with global management company Valor Hospitality Partners for the opening of the Hilton Kinshasa in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). This hotel is Valor Hospitality Partners’ first property in Central Africa and Hilton’s first in the DRC, marking continued growth in the African continent for both companies.

With panoramic views of Kinshasa and the Congo River, the Hilton Kinshasa is centrally located in the business and shopping district of La Gombe, with the ferry crossing to Brazzaville, a five-minute walk from the property. The hotel is adjacent to the Congo Trade Centre, close to the U.S. Embassy, and offers VIP transfers to N’djili Airport. Other attractions include the Kinshasa Golf Course and the Pentecost Martyrs Stadium.

Hilton Kinshasa offers 178 rooms and suites, business lounges, an executive lounge and a private pool terrace with cocktail and lounge seating, an expansive library and 12 conference and event spaces — including a ballroom, eight banquet rooms and a wedding lounge. The hotel also features an impressive food and beverage offering for travelers, including a French bistro, a sports bar and a modern eatery.
