The Hotel Venus's décor, exterior, and rooms all need renovation. The carpet was threadbare in the room, the mattress was collapsed, and one day my towels had strange stains on them. The breakfast, in particular the coffee, was very unappetizing and repetitive. They really need to work on that. That said, the power was always on and the internet worked...

It is an old, dirty and scruffy dump. The rooms lack the basics (no lights, no hangers etc). The bed linen and towels are old and in very poor conditions. The shower falls apart when you try to use it. The A/C does not work. No cleaning, no service and no assistance (front desk people very annoyed at the idea...

Stayed at Hotel Venus for 3 nights and it is a decent place to stay for business meeting. Its near the embassies and so it felt secure. The staff are friendly and they ensure they have at least one person at front desk who speaks English. The door men and security speak little English and were always helpful. The hotel...

It used to be good a few years ago, but now there are better hotels in Kinshasa for slightly lower prices. The rooms are a bit tacky, and the bathrooms are equipped with fancy looking but very bad quality appliances. It happened several times that there was no water in the rooms or that the water pressure was not sufficient...

This was my first visit on business to Kinshasa and I was looking for comfortability without paying a fortune. Hotel Venus certainly fitted the bill. The room was well fitted, clean and comfortable. The dining area, bar and swimming pool area were however quite sparse and not particularly inviting. Breakfast offering was rather poor. However, the staff were very friendly...

Venus it's a nice hotel, with a relative good standard for DRC. Don't worry that the road to go to the hotel is very bad - it's Kinshasa! The room's are very big, nice furnished, fridge and very modern bath room. Most of the time you'll have water and electricity - the hotel has his own group! - luxury for...

You can stay at the other more upmarket hotels but the difference is minimal in terms of service etc. For the amount the other hotels charge it makes sence to stay at the Venus
