Bougain Villa was recommended by a good friend of mine in Zambia, so glad i took his advice.  It is the best by miles and so piece-full. Being South African, i really felt at home.  It has an international feel yet very homely and the staff is easy the friendliest people the whole of DRC.  Best money i have spent on any accommodation in a long while.  the food is first class, coldest beer at the most reasonable prices and best equipped rooms.

Even the shuttle service is top class and well worth spending that extra.  Many thanks for a very pleasant stay and will definitely be checking in there next time i am in Lubumbashi.

Home away from home in Lubumbashi great food great staff great hosts.

Cannot fault Bougain Villa I am a long way from home (UK) but always feel at home here they cannot do enough for me. BBQ Nights are great, the meat has to be the best here by far.  the lovely family that run the place are from South Africa but it has a truly international feel to it on matter where you are from.  There is always a good atmosphere at the bar and someone interesting to chat to.  Long term or short term accommodation it is the best, I would highly recommend BV.

Ive stayed at the Bougain Villa for a total of around 12 weeks or so, on two separate trips, and 5 star in an African country such as Lubumbashi is somewhere you would want to reside for either 1 night or 40.

i was really impressed firstly with the hospitality both Hugo, Reinette and their staff show,  was awesome having them around so often and they are such a warm couple its hard not to love them.  they make Bougain Villa what it is.

Food is brilliant, and coming from South Africa the cuisine made me walk away from the DRC 10Kg Heavier :)  The staff are excellent, especially Nansi who is always there to make you feel welcome when you seated and waiting for dinner.

They often have events for either rugby, quiz evenings, and the odd party in their restaurant which makes staying there so much more homely.

Internet is Average due to African services but I know they have upgraded since I was there last.  Rooms are spacious, laundry done on time, and with the correct amount of TV channels, I would call it a very all round place to stay.

Been to the Karavia and there is no comparison between hotel living and guest house living a hotel is good for 3 nights, not 40, and the same said about hotel food.

Miss H & R and hope to come back soon xxx
