The 120 keys hotel boasts three dining options, a rooftop pool bar and an array of modern accommodation choices in the Democratic Republic of Congo’s second-largest city.

Novotel, one of the world’s leading midscale brands by Accor, is pleased to announce the opening of its second Novotel property in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Novotel Lubumbashi.

The hotel features 120 spacious rooms, including standard, executive, and suite options all equipped with modern amenities. Drawing inspiration from Novotel’s mantra, “Your Time, Your Way,” the new hotel showcases a contemporary interior design concept by METRO, characterized by natural tones and raw materials. This design concept creates versatile spaces that adapt throughout the day, providing guests with an inviting and multifunctional environment tailored to their needs.

Nestled in the heart of the Golf residential area, one of the fastest growing areas of Lubumbashi, the hotel offers spectacular views of Lake Kipopo, alongside convenient accessibility to the Luano’s international airport, just a 20-minute drive away.

Novotel Lubumbashi is the ideal destination for guests seeking a balanced life – from family weekend getaways to special after-work events the hotel is perfect for business, leisure, or a blend of both.

“A place to live unparalleled experiences”.

To elevate the dining experience, guests can enjoy three distinct culinary options. Chai, a lively café extends an open and welcoming space which invites guests to pause and soak up quality time together while discovering a selection of imported tea and local brands that celebrate multiple cultures.

The all-day dining restaurant, Brasserie Kipopo, extends an immersive and authentic experience inspired by American and local cuisine. Throughout the day, guests can enjoy flavourful meals in an interactive atmosphere with live cooking shows. As the sun sets, Xpressions, the South African-inspired lounge bar, transforms into an eclectic venue where Amapiano music, creative cocktails and canapés come together to create a lively hotspot.

For business travellers, functional meeting rooms connected to the ALL CONNECT technology solution providing guests an unparalleled hybrid experience. For those seeking to unwind, the hotel offers a state-of-the-art N’fitness gym and a swimming pool overlooking Lubumbashi and Lake Kipopo, offering an ideal setting to escape the stresses of the day.

Novotel Lubumbashi offers an innovative hospitality experience with its Accor Key digital access solution. This cutting-edge technology allows guests to use their mobile phones, integrated with the ALL – Accor Live Limitless loyalty program app, to unlock their room and access elevators. Furthermore, Welcome In offers travellers a seamlessly check-in upon arrival at Luano International Airport, allowing hotel Heartists to extend a truly personalised guest experience.
